Ft. Collins, CO, MAY 3, 2012 – New Belgium Brewing (www.newbelgium.com) today announced that Somersault Ale is back as the brewery’s summer seasonal. Somersault debuted in 2011, applauded for its relaxed, yet amusing, approach to summertime sipping.
Somersault is an amber tinted blonde that tumbles out with citrus aroma from Centennial hops, a soft apricot fruitiness tucked into the flavor, a full mouthfeel from the addition of oats and a crisp, dry finish from the subtle addition of ginger.
“Warm weather stirs the desire to enjoy beers with a playful nature,” says New Belgium Brewer Grady Hull. “Somersault is light, but full of ingredients that tantalize the palate.”
Somersault is 5.2% ABV and is available in most New Belgium markets now through September.
