New Belgium — Dig Pale Ale

SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

This unseasonably warm weather has had me thinking about spring.

And in my opinion, there's no better way to welcome a new season than with a tasty seasonal brew from a great brewery. That's why this week's beer of the week is the New Belgium Dig.

Even at first glance this beer reminds you of spring — the art on the front of the bottle shows a red Converse shoe pressing a shovel into the soil.

The brew pours amber with a tall, cream-colored head.

The nose of the beer brings scents of orange, tangerine, and lemon peels, with pine and floral notes.

Tastes of citrus and pine are present in the blend as well as a crisp breadiness and biscutty malts.

Dig's alcohol content is 5.6 percent, which makes it a nice, easy-drinking beer.

Pair the New Belgium Dig with any kind of seafood or pork. And no matter what you're eating, pair Dig with an unseasonably warm day and some quality time on your porch swing.

Winter may have been mild, but it was long enough for me.
