Spring has arrived, which means breaking out the barbecue and spending more time outside in the sun. What better way to enjoy the beautiful weather than with a crisp, cool beer with friends. Spring weather calls for a spring beer and the top five beers to choose for spring are:
Samuel Adams Alpine Spring: Samuel Adams has a beer for each season, and their spring beer is at the top of the list. Even their bottling is reminiscent of spring, depicting blooming trees. The beer itself is unfiltered, which means it retains its fermented taste. With hints of lemon, orange, and smooth honey, this beer is on the sweeter side while still tasting hoppy.
The Bruery Saison De Lente: On the pricier side, for good reason this beer screams “spring time”. The bottle is encrusted with a label of a pink and green Easter egg and contains a frothy beer with loads of carbonation. The beer has a subtle apple and orange peel taste with a hoppy flavor following.
Gouden Carolus Easter Beer: The name says it all, what is more spring-y than Easter? Again, a more pricey beer, the bottle is colorful with bunnies and Easter eggs, but there is nothing cute about this strong dark beer. The beer has a malty sweetness complemented by a spicy herb-y taste for a robust tasting experience.
Angry Orchard Crisp Apple: This beer is actually more of a hard cider, but its crisp apple taste makes it a perfect spring option. It’s fruity, while still retaining that dry crisp bite reminiscent of a light beer.
Samuel Adams Double Bock: Samuel Adams makes this list twice for its Double Bock brew. Spring beers traditionally are a bock beer, and this beer is double. This beer is very malty, but has very sweet, almost chocolatey taste and fruity undertones, which makes it a very palatable beer for spring.
