Kick It Man!, the Rogue's notes

47th Street, 2/23

   Finally, February is done.  Now if we can just get Old Man Winter to kick the bucket for the season.  Two weekends in a row with upper 50's to low 60's and plenty of sun. Ringing in some serious Spring fever.  And we start two weeks in a row with a Winter Storm Warning.  This week, what the Weather Channel is calling Winter Storm Titan is expected to drop 4 to 8 inches of snow and sleet  (usually more sleet for us). C'mon Man!

 Seems like the Old Man his gettin' a 2nd wind.  Another one. He needs to end this.  Mother Ocean suspended between 38 and 40F, ain't never gonna warm up at this rate.
Empty lineup. Late February, 2014.

   To bring aid to the situation, I enlisted New Belgium to help with preparations for the Equinox (March 20) in a few weeks.  Their Belgian Style Spring Blonde Ale starts with a clear gold pour, plenty of lacing and a white one finger head. Opens with aromas of lemon, clove and pepper.  The taste of malt and lemon zest up front.  48 IBUs give hint to the dry but sharp refreshing hop finish.  6% ABV makes for a very drinkable six pack.  I rated this spring opener at B+.
