Snapshot by New Belgium Brewing Company in Colorado, United States

About Snapshot by New Belgium Brewing Company

Snap! You just captured an unfiltered wheat beer full of refreshment and a flash of tart at the finish. Smile-inducing aromas of citrus hops jump from the nose, accompanied by the sweetness of coriander and grains of paradise. Brewed with wheat and pale malt, SNAPSHOT BEER pours a hazy, lemon-yellow with bright-white lacing. But the real enticement is the snap of tart. New Belgium’s affinity for sour beers led to the in-process blending of lactobacillus to pucker up Snapshot’s base. An extra step to acidify and beautify and get this beer ready for its close up.

Tasting Notes:

VISUAL
Hazy pale straw, light white foam and sticky lacing.
AROMA
Flavor and tartness, like fresh-cut lemons, enhanced by a light floral aroma. Wheat comes through as a fresh bread note.
FLAVOR
Starts sweet, moves into a tangy sourness that finishes clean.
MOUTHFEEL
Initially rich and creamy, it ends spritzy and with a refreshing twang.
BODY
Medium-light.
