299. Widmer Brothers Citra Blonde Summer Brew

Sometimes you just need a simple refreshing beer. For me when it is really hot and humid or if I just finished a big double IPA or similar beer but still want another. That is usually when I look for a blonde ale.

This one from Widmer is about what you would expect from a blonde ale, light in color and body – simple but refreshing. Color is a nice pale yellow with a fairly thick white head. Aroma has some wheat and citrus. Taste has quite a bit of flavor for a summer blonde ale. Citrus hops, a bit of spice and a nice malt backbone. Overall a nice refreshing summer brew from Widmer.

Brewers Description: Citra hops lend their name to this interpretation of a golden ale. But that’s not all they bring to the party.  Their striking citrus aroma and thirst-quenching flavor are the perfect pairing for the soft malt notes. Together they create a beer that’s full in flavor and uniquely refreshing.
