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.

Beer pours golden in color with a nice big egg white colored head. Aromas of grass and bread. Taste is mostly sweet with some light bitterness. Body of beer is medium and the texture is creamy. Pretty nice easy going beer. Quite good for the style.

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

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.

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.
