The best way to learn about a new place is tasting its food: through the flavors we can know more about the traditions and history of the people who live in these places.
Experimenting with new ingredients makes life interesting and if the foods are especially nutrient-dense — even better. They are so high in vitamins, minerals, and other healing compounds that health experts call them superfoods. In their countries of origin, these berries, nuts, plants, and seeds have been used for thousands of years to holistically medicate the body or just add yumminess to everyday, wholesome meals.

Straight Outta the Exchange: New Belgium Citradelic

Somehow, I’m still finishing up my beer exchange beers. This brew is not your typical winter beer. Which is timely, since last week’s weather was so mild. New Belgium’s Citradelic has a unique sweetness to it without losing the bitter hop flavors throughout. This brew is good for any season – pick up a six pack and try it out! Tasting...

Tasting Notes

AppearanceTransparent gold with white head

Aroma: Strong citrus scent with just as mucn strong hops

Mouthfeel: Crisp and refreshing mouthfeel. Bitter, hoppy aftertaste

Taste: SWEET IPA. Sweet citrus – tangerine as promised. Hop profile is just enough to be an IPA.

Overall: A great day drinking summer beer. It isn’t so hoppy that all you taste is bitter hops. Nice sweetness to it and the flavors of tangerine are definitely there. My own tastes could use a bit more hoppiness to it, but still a great brew.
