Somersault Ale was designed to be a fun beer that rolls around on the tongue while requiring only the minimum of palate gymnastics. In other words, this perfect summer lounge around brew is ridiculously fun and easy to drink. Even though the second Somersault goes down as effortlessly the first, New Belgium's 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!
