"Midnight Wheat" in New Belgium's "Snow Day"

I picked up a sixer of New Belgium’s “Snow Day” seasonal beer this weekend, and had a bottle on Saturday. Its a very nice, hoppy, winter ale. I did some looking online, and this uses “Midnight Wheat”, which supposedly is a new wheat malt.

I did some more searching, and this is supposedly a new new year-round malt offered by Briess. Its a 550L wheat malt, and a non-bitter alternative to Black Malt, or so says Briess.

When will we see this offered by NB???

Here is a link to the info sheet:

Midnight wheat was on Midwest Supplies’ site last year. They need to bring Black Prinz back. I brewed a black IPA with that stuff and it was phenomenal. Of course, it’s not available now.

I thought the Snow Day was okay. Not my favorite beer, but pleasant to drink. I always thought 2 Below was basically a more robust Fat Tire. My dad tells me that was what Fat Tire tasted like 15 years ago when he first had it.

I agree about the 2 Below, and I like it.

Black Prinz was a seasonal release last year, but it looks like it’s gone year round.

Seasonal malt releases seem a bit silly to me.

Except that our host nor Midwest is carrying it, right now anyway. Damn it! That was good stuff! It’d be mega cool if it was year round, and I agree, seasonal malt releases? Silliness.
