Bottled & Keg; Status uncertain.

Brewed with special Nelson Sauvin Hops from New Zealand. This variety provides a wine like fruitiness that pairs beautifully with the esters of the Belgian yeast. The finish is dry with some peppery spice. A great alternative to white wine

phaleslu (9019) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 4, 2016
Bottle shared by Leighton in the hotel room over RBWG - thanks again, Leighton! Pours a hazy pale gold with a small white head that forms a lasting film. Notes of white grapes, pale and bready malts, fruity esters, florals, grass, pear, and cobwebs. Light-bodied, with a dry, funky mouthfeel and moderate to medium carbonation. Nice stuff.

johndoughty (4807) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2015
Bottle. Very cloudy yellow appearance. Poured with a big head. Lots of citrus with a sharp bitter edge which was a bit too in your face for me. Despite this it was still quite pleasant to drink.

jzi (77) - POLAND - APR 24, 2015
Wygląd: barwa jasno żółta, mętna, piana biała, zbita, utrzymująca się do końca. zostawia bujny lacing. Aromat: Cytrusy, drożdże, pszenica (?) Smak: niezalegająca goryczka - wyraźna lecz nie za mocna, raczej odświeżająca. Słodkawe, na końcu czyć cytrusy. Lekkie i przyjemne piwo, wysokie wysycenie i delikatna goryczka sprawia że piwo jest idealne na upały.

sebletitje (8957) - Enghien, BELGIUM - APR 5, 2015
Bouteille 33cl de Malt Attacks, BB 27/01/2016, brewed on 27/01/2015. Dorée légèrement trouble, col fin blanc. Arôme offre un bouquet mettant de suite l’accent sur le côté rustique d’une saison belge, notamment avec une levure bien présente qui offre un accent terreux. Le côté grains ne reste également pas ne reste,d e ce fait la complexité du Nelson prend un petit pas de recul tout en apportant un ajout discret de fruité-raisin blanc. Palais est sec, tout en gardant le côté rustique de saison, la levure y joue un rôle important avec son caractère clairement orienté hennuyer. Le houblon Nelson reste, ici aussi, un peu plus discret, et je note aussi un léger citronné proche d’un côté bergamote. Le tout se termine sur une touche sèche et finement herbacée.
