Widmer Brothers “Citra Blonde Summer Ale”

Posted: July 6, 2011 in Golden Ale

It’s summertime and that means new seasonals.  I love the exciting different brews the breweries make for each season.  The idea of waiting for something perennial is fun just like blackberries, or tulips.  I also love that all the breweries really try to do different things with their beers for the seasonals.   Some of the best beers have started out as a seasonal.  The Citra Blonda Summer Brew is a great beer.  I don’t like it when a beer tries to add to much which this one does not.  They used Citra Hops which are a new style of hops that add a citrus flavor.  The blend of citrus, hops, and malts balance perfectly.  I agree with Widmer Brothers that this beer is “satisfyingly sessionable”
