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.

Not really impressed. Has a tangy flavor and arouma and isnít really drinkable at cold temperatures. A tangerine-ie flavor... better served at room temperature.

Random golden ale. Some sour kind of citrus. Pours amber with OK head. Finish falls off completely. Boring. Tap at Churchkey.

BlackHaddock (4738) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2015
12oz bottle in my hotel room ( Oceanside, California) on 27th May 2015. Poured into a plastic beaker while watching íshit TVí. Clear golden body, the head a full and lasting white covering. Aroma is loose with a mild fruit hint, the taste is also leaning towards fruity flavours with a malt backbone. Refreshing yet lacking in flavour and depth. I think this is the worst score I have given a ber from these guys at this brewery.

Stampion (182) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 24, 2015
Pours a clear golden color, no head o speak of. Crisp and refreshing with a little bit going on. Sweat, citrus lemon and some malts. Nice on the pallet and nice on a summer day. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is a lighter beer with almost no head. Good taste and nice palate. A tasty beer for sure.

TXBadger (1810) - Dallas, Texas, USA - NOV 24, 2014
Pours a lighter golden color with white head. Some bread, a little light fruit, and some grass on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes fairly dry.

"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.
