With summer “officially” over (they’re calling for temps in the 90s next week) I figured it’s time to write up my final review of a summer seasonal. Even though I got sick of this beer after we ordered a keg of it, it was still one of the best summer seasonals I discovered this year.
CITRA BLONDE SUMMER BREW is an American Blonde Ale from Oregon’s Widmer Bros. Brewing. This summer seasonal has a perfect for a hot day 4.3% ABV.
After the success of beer number 5, I decided to stick with The Bruery for beer 6.
MOTHER FUNKER is another Provisions Series ale. This American Wild Ale has a 6% ABV.
SUMMER BEERS Day 7
As the weather is starting to cool down outside, my summer seasonal week is also coming to an end. For this last day I decided to go with the beer that I had the most this year: SOMERSAULT from New Belgium Brewing Company. Somersault is a blonde ale with a 5.2% ABV, 28 IBUs and 130 calories.
SUMMER BEERS Day 5
Day 5 may brings us another blonde ale, but it’s my first beer from Utah’s Uinta Brewing Company. Sum’r is not only a summer seasonal (available March through September), but it’s also part of their Four + series. This organic ale has a tiny 17 IBUs and a mild 4% ABV.
SUMMER BEERS Day 4
I recently went and saw John Williams perform live with the Los Angeles Philharmonic at the Hollywood Bowl and I brought a six pack of this beer to keep me company. I knew nothing about it, but I saw that it was a summer seasonal and what better type of beer to keep you cool on a warm August night while enjoying live music under the stars. Summer Love is a blonde ale available May through the summer. It clocks in at an easy drinking 5.2% ABV.
