Snapshot Wheat Beer

New Belgium recently released Snapshot Wheat Beer, an American Wheat beer that has lactobacillus added during the brewing process. That was done to add "a smile-inducing flash of tart at the finish," which I thought was interesting enough an idea to check it out. These guys even made a Twitter Hashtag #SnapShotWheat for the beer. I love the label, with the old school camera and disposable flash on it. Enjoy by May '14. 5% alcohol.

Lemony citrus aroma along with coriander and wheat.Wheat flavor and thick texture, very grainy. There is also a nice bright lemon citrus and faint spices underneath the grains. The finish had a bit of that tartness they suggested, and though I'd have liked a little more sourness, it worked well. The tartness brings refreshment and also cuts the initial thicker texture. Good carbonation. Very dry finish. I liked it!

Absolutely want to try this. I'm not a fan of bitter or super hoppy beers, so this sounds perfect for me!

Not hard to find, Matt. Let me know what you think when you try it.
