Pours a beautiful straw with a reasonable sized white head,that sticks to the side like something that sticks to the sides of glasses.
Smells slightly sweet with a hint of coriander, and a fruity lightness that promises refreshment and flavour.
The taste follows through on that promise. It's like a sundress on a beautiful woman: floral and light and perfect on a warm afternoon. Makes me glad I have eyes and a tongue.
I'm not normally real big on blonde (ales), nor lighter afternoon beers in general, but NB really did themselves proud on this one. Absolutely pick up some somersault if you get the opportunity. It's great on a sunny afternoon, but would be good otherwise as well. Even if you tend to prefer darker fuller brews (as I do), this is a well crafted and refreshing dalliance well worth your time and money. Well played New Belgium, well played...
