Ungstrup (29223) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 14, 2010
Cask at The New Oxford, Manchester. A light golden beer with an off-white head. The aroma has notes of malt and citrus. The flavor is light, but lovely hoppy lending it notes of elderflowers and citrus fruits on a lightly malty back ground, leading to a dry and bitter finish.

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 2, 2010
Cask. Clear yellow with a white head. Very fresh citrus notes in the nose - even grapefruit. Ah, now I see - Nelson Sauvin, yummy. Light-bodied, rather flat, fruity alright but completely dominated by the fresh aroma hops leaving a slight astringency. 220110

harrisoni (13598) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2009
Cask at Bricklayers Arms Yorskhire Festival 09. Pale gold, lasting bubbly white head. Supposed to be sauvignon blanc-y and it is. Nelson Sauvin hops? Getting towards the end of the barrel, so little condition, but the mango/passionfruit is unmistakeable. In top condition, this would be fantastic, rich tropical fruits and drying tangy hop. Just lacks condition.

imdownthepub (10141) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2008
Cask conditioned at Merton Winter Beer Festival ’08. Pale gold with white head. Big flowery and citrusy flavours on a fairly thin and light base. Lots of drying grapefruit notes, tangy and adding to the bitterness with an overlaid flowery sweetness, I didn’t initially get this as elderflower but once it was pointed out then yes it is very apparant. A very tidy beer.
