Now On Tap: New Belgium’s Somersault Ale

June 28, 2011

Somersault Ale was designed to be a fun roll around on the tongue while requiring only the minimum of palate gymnastics. In other words, this perfect summer lounge around beer is ridiculously fun and easy to drink. Even though the second Somersault goes down as effortlessly the first, brewer, Grady, actually has quite a few remarkable notes at play in the nose, flavor and mouthfeel. There is an opening brace of citrus aroma from Centennial hops, a soft apricot fruitiness tucked into the flavor, a fresh snap from a sliver of ginger root, finished with oats in a long cool mash. Color is blonde with a suggestion of cloudiness. Somersaults all around!
Just the facts Ma’am…
ABV: 5.2% ~ Calories: 130
Hops: Centennial = medium intensity with floral and citrus tones. Very balanced hops, sometimes called super Cascade.
Malts: Pale, Caramel + Oats
Fruits/Spice: Apricot/Ginger
