One of my favorite Summit beers. I’m not sure if it is just the coffee flavor, but it really warms me up. Great after hunting for the winter carnival medallion, or after shoveling, or after breakfast.
I’ve had this on tap a couple times in the past month or so. It was surprisingly strong tasting. Initially the bitter taste was a bit too much for me but it must have been pretty potent because I didn’t notice that it was strong be the bottom of the glass. Not my favorite beer, but still pretty good.
I was surprised that this was so cheap ($6.99/12 pack) until I tasted it. It smelled and tasted like a cheap beer. Once I poured it into a glass the smell got a little better, but I still didn’t like the taste. I think the honey is in there just to try to cover up the harsh taste. For the record, the other honey beer I’ve tried is Leinie’s Honey Weiss.
I was really excited to try Snowstorm, and to kick of this weekly project, but then I tasted it. I admit it was lighter tasting than I expected, but that is about all I liked about it. If you blink you’ll miss the hint of fruit and just be left with the bitter aftertaste. I’m glad I got the Schell’s sampler pack at Haskells instead of six of these.
