COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Inspired by our anniversary bike trips through Belgium. Spring Blonde is a bright golden ale with a sweet lemony start, pedaling to a pleasantly bitter finish.

Pours clear golden color, almost no head. Minimum lacing, quite highly carbonated. Aromas of hay, cereal, some fruity apple notes. Taste is somewhat sweet with bitter finish.

Clear gold pour - lively carbonation that eventually produces a frothy lace - fairly sweet nose of honey, pear, apple, with a slight lemon tartness and mildly floral hops - quite sweet up front, with a syrupy texture - innocuous pale malt sweetness - no Belgian character to speak of - the New Belgium website states this is brewed with Nugget hops and a "hybrid ale yeast" - not sure what that means, but here we have a beer with lightly resinous hops, moderate sweetness, and little yeast character to speak of, tasting more like a clumsy american "craft" lager than a Belgian ale - pretty poor showing.

Hanan (78) - NW Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JAN 12, 2014
6r from Walmart n Phoenix. Poured cold mug. Sunny spring like day in January. Lemony as advertised. A little too much lemon for me but not a huge lemon fan here. Maybe a touch of grapefruit. It's no somersault; but, a good blonde. Bit of barley. A little spice. Has the new belgium underly synonymous with all new belgium. That little nutty aftertaste like in fat tire, a bit of that. Very much like a fat tire blonde. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from Total Wine in Orlando, FL. Pours gold with a large creamy white head. Aroma is softly yeasty with a citrus note. Flavor is bready with citrus and a minimum of spice and yeast. Starter Belgian.
