COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ale brewed with wormwood, goji berries, and schisandra. Deftly, this spring brewed venture lands on its feet. Springboard combines oats, ancient Chinese herbs and Mt. Hood hops to maintain a balanced equilibrium for such an exhilarating ale. This cloudy blonde has a spirited threshold, and a creamy body, followed by a refreshingly dry finish.

Very odd.. and odd to rate. The aroma is nice. Sweet open and citrusy. The color is VERY bright yellow but cloudy. The flavor is good overall, but the palate, and much of the flavour is better in a medicinal way. In fact it reminds me of echinaecea. The finish is back of the tongue bitter and not so great. It is an interesting beer. It is also my least favourite from NB.

Originally rated on 6/4/08. Mildly disappointing brew from a great brewer. It was slightly bitter with not any real distinguishing tastes, although there were some minute citrus hints in the aroma and flavor. There are to many other good N.B. beers out there to buy this one again.

Medium to light bodied with a weak finish. Aroma is herbs and light fruit. Decent taste but nothing really stands out.

Pours a clear golden color with white head. Cereal grains, some herbs, and a bit of floral notes on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes dry.

dlihcsnatas (607) - Texas, USA - NOV 19, 2013
Dull Yellow brew with little head. Smells like mellons and grain. Taste is sweet, very fruity with a mellon style. Some thickness on the toungue gives it a silky feel. Interesting brew and one that I will most likely pick up again due to the unique flavors.

harrymel (1551) - Spokane, Washington, USA - NOV 18, 2013
best by 14JUN13 Light grainy yellow with a soapy etched top. Smells sweet, grassy and fruity. Some honeydew, some corn, some apricot and belgian yeast with a touch of clay. Tastes sweet and floral, some more honeydew, some canteloupe, a bit of edible flowers, just a cut of gut alfalfa. Pretty flavor. Medium bodied with tight, moderate carb and a watering finish. An interesting beer, something that seems it would be nice on occassion, but not full time, a real winner for a seasonal. Not much belgian about it to me, which is not necessarily a negative, but something of note for the style.

Despite the weirdness of this beer, its surprinsingly bland. A non-descript blonde. Dry, herby, but mostly uninteresting.

OK brew, unique ingredients yield unique aroma and flavor profile. Overall a bit floral fruity and sweet for my tastes.

BlackWarrior (203) - Spartanburg, South Carolina, USA - JUL 31, 2013
Hazy yellow orange with fluffy white head. Leaves a thin ring and good lacing. Aromas of berries, yeast and spice. Light body with crisp carbonation. Flavors of cereal malts, floral and spice hops and some fruity sweetness. Finish is slightly bitter and dry. Overall enjoyable.
