New Belguim Day Blazer

 

Why Bill Enjoys this Beer….

“New Belgium brewing is hands down my favorite brewery so when I got word they were releasing several new options this year the hunt for new beers was on! My first stop was Dayblazer their easy going ale, the bright blue and gold packaging  practically jumped off the shelf, it was clear this was going to be my first stop on the trip of sampling  all of New Belgium's new beers. The moment I cracked the can the wonderful smell of malt with just a touch of honey and vanilla hit the air and I knew I was in for a treat. Then the taste test began, talk about an easy drinking beer, the golden ale had a light bodied mouthfeel  and the initial sweetness seemed to pull you in and is quickly followed by  just enough hop bitterness to give you a nice effervescent flavor with a fast clean finish. This beer fits nicely into my beer wheelhouse, although my pallet has come a long way over the last few years and IPA’s and Pale Ales hit my fridge more often, I still most enjoy the easy drinking ales and  Dayblazer fits the bill perfectly, well built and chalk full of flavor. It will definitely be a staple in my fridge from here on out. If you haven't yet grabbed a six pack, do yourself a favor and pick one up on your next trip out, you will be happy you did!”
