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.

Kind of odd that I found this spring seasonal, but the store no longer had Snow Day even though it was an actual snow day from school. But anyway, it’s about as lemony as you can get in a beer without being disgusting. A little hops to balance it, but still dominantly lemony smell and taste.

It pours a straw yellow that is almost blindingly bright and clear, with over a 1 finger head of foam. Lacing is great as per NB usual. The smell is kind of earthy, has some distinct lemon thing going on, light aroma of yeast. I have to say the smell translates to the taste and is nice. I think the lemon flavour does a good job of making this interesting. A bit earthy, light hint of pepper, kind of bitter in the finish. Medium bodied though in the finish, it does get very light, almost watery. A good brew here. I’ll enjoy the other 5 bottles.

pours a clear golden yellowish color with a thick fluffy white head. the aroma is very bready and there is also slight citrus in it. the taste is very bready, some sweet malts, some hops, pine, and lightly citrusy.

12oz bottle pours bright yellow with white fluffy head. The initial aroma is mild Belgian style esters but very mild. The flavor for me taste like hay with stuff thrown into it. Get a very mild citrus on the back end. This is another beer I don’t understand from them.

wxman (1522) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - JAN 14, 2014
Pours a clear pale golden with an initially full white head that soon becomes a thin layer with plenty of lace. Aroma is bread dough and mild hop cones. Taste is sweet pale malt, bread dough, grass and mild bitterness. Decent.

Tac (135) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JAN 13, 2014
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.

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
