2013 Schell Snowstorm Ale
snowflakes, no two Snowstorm beers are alike. Once a year, our brewmasters
lock themselves in the testing room with a secret selection of fine malts
and hops, only emerging when they've hit upon something truly extraordinary.
Some of our past Snowstorm recipes, like Firebrick, proved so popular, we
started brewing them year-round. Look for a special new batch of Snowstorm
every season, available in November, December, and January or while supplies
last. 2012 Snowstorm Beer Style: Belgian Style Golden Ale. Alcohol by Volume:
Chamomile and coriander add soothing herbal notes to this year's Snowstorm
recipe. It is smooth and light in color, with a floral maltiness and warm
Beer Review from
Appearance - Poured into a goblet, this brew unlike its Belgian brethern is
completely clear. Light golden with a finger of white head that breaks down
into a thin layer.
Aroma - Belgiany-lots of estery goodness with a clean malt aroma with
coriander noticeable. Smells great.
Tast - The Belgian character is mostly fruity banana/bitter orange esters,
some spicy phenolic character but the estery character is stronger. Plenty
of malt to carry the flavors of barley malt with the essence of coriander.
Has a nice floral quality as well-I guess that must be the chamomile.
Mouthfeel - Super clean and crisp for a Belgian. Highly carbonated with a
light body and a soft mouthfeel but impressively no alcohol bite. Damn easy
Overall - This is a pretty solid Belgian-esque brew. Nice flavors, clean
taste and super high drinkability. This with a super affordable $11 for a 12
pack equals a beer I'll be drinking a lot of over the next couple months.
