Blue Paddle ~ New Belgium Brewing Company

Appearance: golden grains under a solid white head of foam and bubbles. Fades creamy in the middle and bubbly along the edges. Swirls with lovely lace.

Nose: artisanal whole grain bread. Sun-baked grain. Dried lemon and lime skin. Sourdough bread creeps in – creamy in the middle, crunchy along the sides. Whisper of banana in the back. Husks and hay.

Palate: smooth chewy decadent breads up front and in the middle – slightly sweet. Dry finish of husks, straw, and fields of grains. Pineapple essence. Dryness of banana peel and skins.

Final Thoughts: definitely more complex in the nose than in the palate but a solid summer quaffer nonetheless. A biergarten pilsner.
