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.

New Belgium knows there Belgians. This one is no exception. Really good smell. Super rich flavor.

BrettTaylor (491) - Radford, Virginia, USA - SEP 17, 2014
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.

matty (197) - 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
