I don’t always mention the name of the Mystery Beer when it first gets tapped, but yesterday I did let you know that the Mystery Beer had a “snap” of  tartness and that you should give it a “shot”. The Mystery Beer for Tuesday, March 29th was…

Snapshot from New Belgium Brewing in Fort Collins, CO

From the New Belgium website:

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.

This unfiltered brew makes for a nice introduction to the realm of sours, but is also well suited for the established sour lovers. Grab a pour soon because this one isn’t likely to last long!
