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.

Hanan (80) - 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

Transfer from BA review on 4-28-14- Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a clear medium golden amber color with a two finger head of white billowy foam. The head has a good level of retention, slowly fading to leave a great level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma of the beer is very light overall with just a bit of a citrus smell of lemon and some candied sugar, toasted malt, and some yeasty smells. Taste – The taste begins with a bready and slightly yeasty flavor. Some lightly toasted Belgian malt flavors quickly come to the tongue along with some sweeter flavors of fruit with them being of a pear and a bit of apple. A little bit of a candied sugar taste later comes to the tongue with some lemongrass coming as well. All the while, the bready flavors convert more toward a doughy flavor as the taste advances to the end. Some hay comes to the tongue at the end as well, leaving a somewhat crisp but lightly sweetened malty flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average side in terms of thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is on the higher side. Both are rather nice for the mix of Belgian malt flavors and candied sugar/fruit flavors all while the higher carbonation level really does a nice job of keeping the brew crisp and refreshing. Overall –While a bit light in the Belgian spice, the Belgian malt was quite nice and made for an interesting and overall nice drinking brew.

Poured from bottle into tulip. Pours a light yellow with creamy, thick, four finger head. Aroma - lemon, spicy yeast, soft hops. Taste - sweet malt, some citrus, spicy yeast notes, warm bread. Refreshing on palate. Not my favorite blonde ever, but pretty nice.

"Clear golden but with a nice fluffy white head and good legs. Aroma is a little musty, with some yeasty spice and understated lemon. Decent prickly but crisp feel. Flavor pops a little more than the nose."

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 doesn’t come across that hoppy.
