Somersault is New Belgium's featured summer seasonal. Somersault is an american blonde that has a hint of a citrus aroma. This is a light but flavorful beer that's pretty good for a hot day spent outside. These would go down very well at the pool, or outside playing bags all day long.
It's got a nice golden color and and a light but flavorful taste. With a light wheat flavor as it goes down, this beer isn't as strong as I usually like - but then again I'm a hop fiend. I give this beer a solid B, it's a good session beer, and I'll grab a twelve pack if I'm going to the beach. I prefer this to most of the common summer beers, if only because it's a nice change of pace.
