With the sublime, earthy familiarity of noble European hops backed up by fresh, clean German malts, Summer Love Ale ends with a surprising burst of lemony refreshment from fistfuls of American whole flower hops. Love Summer, now.

Summer Love

Served in New Belgium globe glass

A: Pours clear straw/gold with a small white head that has little retention. Vibrant effervescence. 

S: Bready malts, a whiff of sulfur, lemony zest. Light spiciness, too. 

T: Relatively sweet on the front end with a toasty malt kick. Off note of paper joins hay and grass at mid palate. Sulfur shows up, too. Light bitterness tidies up mess and dares you to take another drink. 

M: Light body and medium carbonation. 

O: The more I drink the less I love Summer Love. I understand that the style calls for a malt-forward approach, but the paper and hay indicate something is amiss.

On tap at the Mellow in Greensboro.Poured into a standard pint a clear light golden with a sticky 1/2 finger bone white head.Citric and herbal hops dominate the nose along with a toasted malt base,really liked the big play on the hops.Flavors of citrusy hops provide the main flavor component along with light herbalness,a dryer toasty malt base holds true to the finish.This is a great summer beer,a great hop profile and very drinkable,well done Victory.

12oz bottle. Pours a slightly hazy yellow gold with a big rocky white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is honey, malts and a little noble hops.

The flavor is grainy malts and grassy hops in the finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with light smooth carbonation.

Overall, an OK subdued hoppier blonde ale. Not too exciting.
