Victory Brewing Company has unlveiled a brand new summer seasonal beer named Summer Love, while still retaining Whirlwind Wit, which we have enjoyed for many of the past summers. Victory is now one of the only breweries featuring two unique summer beers.
Let's get this out of the way right off the bat-- Summer Love is one of the best summer seasonal beers we have ever tasted. This quaffer of a blonde ale is light bodied, yet packed with crackery, grainy, earthy, floral, and citrus flavors. A fruitiness from the yeast used in this brew is heavenly. It has a noticeable hop bitterness, more so than most blonde ales we have experienced. Summer Love is kind of like hybrid between an American pale ale and a Belgian golden ale.
Speaking of pale ales, Victory's recently released Headwaters Pale Ale is an absolute must try if you are a fan of the style. There is no rush to try this brew, as it is a year round offering and will be available on our shelves for the foreseeable future. But if you want to indulge in some Summer Love you should do it soon, as we are expecting it to go quick.
