Pours a bright clear yellow with a white head. Not much aroma--a little yeasty. A bit bland. Some floral notes, a little apricot and slightly soapy finish. Not bad.

January 28th, 2014 - New Belgium’s Spring Blonde is a lovely clear brew, with a big frothy top. Even with a wait and a few sips, the foam persists, never giving up, never letting me down. The aroma, far from a bland blonde, is more like a triple, rich with wheat and pear and a hint of lime. The flavor is somewhat obscured by a sudsy palate, but I can still catch the grain profile, bringing out those wheat brew notes, intense and powerful. As craft beer goes this is a frugal choice, but it packs a lot of flavor for what it costs, and for that reason makes a great brew for social events - impress crowds, drink good beer.

355ml bottle from Mitsuya’s Liquor in Asagaya, Tokyo. Poured into an English tulip pint. Clear straw golden color with a nice soapy white head that hangs around for a fair amount of time. After about 30 minutes it looks like a pale lager or pilsner in the glass. Banana, pineapple and citrus aroma. As it warms up a slight bubblegum aroma comes out. Almost no malt notes are noticeable. Strong wheat presence on the palate with lemon standing out particularly strongly. A slight sourness becomes noticeable on the palate after coming to room temperature. Soda-pop like carbonation with a medium dry finish.
