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.

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

This is a great session beer. Its exactly what I was looking for in a light summer beer. The new Belgium web site says the ibus are 48 but it doesnít come across that hoppy.

matty (174) - Camp Hill, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 28, 2014
12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear gold color with a 1" white head. Aroma is floral with a touch of yeast. Light-medium body. Malt is primary in the taste, was expecting more yeast. Slight sour/bitter finish. The taste improves as it warms. Ok, nothing to write home about. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I had this on tap at Hangar on the Wharf, Juneau, AK. I had this in a pint glass. The appearance was a clear yellow color with no head (bar pour, so Iím not taken aback). There was some light stringy lacing following the beer as it goes down. The smell didnít really have much at all. If there was anything, there were some light floral notes. The taste once again didnít have much to it. It was basically just beer and it didnít have any aftertaste nor finish. On the palate, it sat exceptionally light and showed a very good sessionability about it. Overall, well, I say this was just an average American Blonde Ale. Iím not sure why its labeled a Belgian Ale as it wasnít even served in proper glassware for a Belgian Ale. Anyways, well, I honestly donít think Iíd have it again despite proper glassware or not.

5000 (6178) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 18, 2014
Bottle:   Mealy beer, pale breadiness, a touch of soil.   Not a bright Belgian, very American like.   Its also a bit grainy.   Reminds me of an attempt on making Fat Tire a Belgian like ale.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Too grainy and bready, not bright or bubbley.   Not a fan...

hopmelt (139) - Painesville TWP, Ohio, USA - MAY 18, 2014
Pours clear yellow, half finger frothy white head. Aroma light noble hops, pilsner malt, some fruity yeast esters, all subdued. Taste sweet pilsner malt, spicy noble hops, again slight fruity esters, well balanced but subdued. Mouthfeel thin body, medium carbonation slight spiciness, dry finish. Overall light on aroma and flavor, but nice refreshing beer, nice alternative to a light lager.
