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.

Tap at FW Gman. It pours a very clear yellow to light orange color. Heavy foamy white head that sits and remains. Aroma is lemon grains, grassy hops with a bit of spiced kick. Lots of aroma for the style. Flavor is citric fruit upfront; lemon and lime with a light bitter kick from the hops in the back. Light mouthfeel with soothing sweet malts. This is surprisingly good and quite refreshing.

draft and bottle. clear apple juice body with large-bubbled patchy off-white head. grain husk and dough nose with touches of vitamin-b and sea foam. combination of pale malt and mild green hops gives it a wet grass and hay flavor. minerallic and rough with a watery finish and dishsoap undertones. abrasive and rigid.

Somersault starts with the aroma, which has a certain level of lemony graininess. It also has a light sourdough bread characteristic that I usually get out of lagers. Itís a pretty beer, blonde in color, with a nice foamy head. Iím eating this with goat cheese and it actually goes really well together. The high carbonation of the beer helps to scrub the palate of the creamy goat cheese, and the citrusy taste plays well with the smooth cheese. I had this on tap earlier this week and didnít really care for it, but for whatever reason tonight itís kind of hitting the spot. Does a neat trick of being very light and easy to drink while remaining full flavored. Not bad at all.

12 oz. bottle best before September 4, 2011 purchased at Food City. Somersault is a clear gold color with a very nice head. This smells spiced and fruity, almost like a light Belgian ale. I was hoping for more hops in the aroma, but it is still decently citrusy. Apricot is noticeable in the aroma and flavor which usually is overdone in other beers, but New Belgium has used it most tastefully here. It just provides a little sweetness and tartness that goes well with everything else. The finish is on the dry side. Though this is a milder brew, it is quite interesting and makes sense for the season.

On tap at West Coast Brewfest 2011. Pours clear yellow with a thick white head and a light floral aroma. There is a refreshing pale malt flavor with slight hop bitterness.

drjay44 (2999) - Salida, Colorado, USA - MAY 20, 2011
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
