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.

Itís Sep 3rd, approaching the eventual melding away and off of this yearís summer but quite not yet so the aleís premise is still in effect. Turn upside down the label and itís a pretty damn steep hill to roll down on. There is, however, a nice place to relax the tastes at when there and when finished. (Iíd heard there ainít gonna be no more 2 Below come this winter, be it so?)

"a very nice hop character atop a light and refreshing blonde ale. seems like NB does blonde well. simple, but tasty, recommended as a summer brew for sure

Somersault is unique as both a seasonal and an ale. As a seasonal, it represents a departure from the lagers and wheat ales that are popularly associated with the summer months by craft brewers. As a blond ale, Somersault has a bit more of a hop kick than Iím used to seeing within the style. The body is light and very approachable, but the finish is fresh and a bit bitter. New Belgium has made better (and worse) beers than this one, but itís a bold effort that works.

A pretty decent blonde, though less potent yeast than I prefer. Golden, crisp, and a bit bland.

A just OK drinker. Not much reason to get this when you can have a fat tire.

SDalkoholic (2146) - Linda Vista, California, USA - MAY 28, 2013
Bottle from Bonita Liquor: Poured a golden straw blonde with a fluffy topping of foam head. Not much aroma for me to smell other than some light notes of hops that have a hint of citrus peel. The flavor is bland with a faint background of grained malt that gives off a tiny bit of honey while a grassy usage of hops goes almost unnoticed. Boring recipe, but quite refreshing on a hot summer day on the 4th of July.

kbutler1 (1351) - Minnesota, USA - MAY 4, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear yellow orange color with a white head. Has a musty, fruit like aroma. Medium/light mouthfeel. Slightly hoppy with a sweet lemon like zest as well hiding in there. The ginger is evident as well. Its not bad and would probably be pretty good on a hot day.

Light and easy drinking. Overall not super crazy just simply drinkable. Lots of mild florals.

DuffMan (6802) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 26, 2013
Bottle. Hazy orange-kissed golden colour with a one-finger thick dense white head. Very little lace. Aroma is fresh and clean, floral/fruity hops and light cereal. Nice juicy apricot fruit hop signature, light citrus, clean cereal malts. Finish is mildly bitter and tart. Refreshing and very sessionable. Sometimes these simple blonde ales just hit the spot.
