COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Somersault is a fun roll around on the tongue, while requiring only the minimum of palate gymnastics. This is the perfect summer lounge-around beer. Somersault tumbles out with citrus aroma from Centennial hops, a soft apricot fruitiness tucked into the flavor, a full mouthfeel from the addition of oats and a crisp, dry finish from the subtle addition of ginger.

12 oz. bottle. Tasting at FIBARK fundraiser. Pours a medium, fairly short lived white head, with minimal lacing, over a clear gold (SRM 5) body....nose is light biscuit, cereal...taste is light cereal, then a bit of banana, bubblegum, light apricot.....mouth feel is light, carbonation medium. This is a light summer session beer. It needs time to open up and bring out its best qualities. It is almost a light Hefe without any wheat. BJCP 6/3/11/4/6

-blank stare- .. . . . . Pours a light gold, head is good, lacing is better .. . aroma of hay, citrus, and grasshopper gas .. . light and airy, very summer oriented .. . kansas in 2 days baby! .. . very light bitterness, some citrus- a session poolside beer but lacks any complexity and one of the weaker NB seasonals, but that said, still mildy pleasant .. . Not my cockroach beer but i could enjoy this in the summer heat .. . Why do hairdressers insist on talking to me? i want my haircut, not a person to talk to, so get the scissors and stop asking me how my day was.. it was fine and you’re still a weirdo who bags my hair and takes it home to make dolls... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4qU_v0lZ1DA

Bottle at Texas Beerfest. Pours a cloudy orange with a frothy off white head that lasts awhile. The aroma is a sweet fruit aroma with cirtrus apricot and ginger. Medium mouthfeel with a strong ginger flavor and citrus. Easy to drink a decent blond from New Belgium.

scooterbub (910) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - MAY 15, 2011
12 ounce bottle. Pours a nice golden color with a clingy, one inch white head that lasts. Taste is of citrus, fruit, malt, wheat and hops. Similar aroma. Has a decent body that is on the lighter side. A great summer beer as it is flavorful, easy to drink, refreshing and a good thirst quencher.

Smells like apricots. This is pretty light. Simple, a bit malty, some crispness. Good way to start the evening at the beer festival.

Somersault brings the all the subtle flavors a good summer ale requires. Its aroma is floral and oaty and appears smooth and golden in color. Its taste brings a crisp hoppy tone followed by a lingering oat and citrus finish. This light bodied beer fits perfect for a relaxing day out in the sun.

Draft at freds. Pours a crystal clear medium gold with a loose and stringy white head. Mild understated floral and caramel notes. Creamy medium body with soft carb. Caramel, brown bread, and hay on the mid palate. We will probably never get a gold with boldness and crispness and character, but this one certainly isnt bad.
