I’m not sure if I forgot to rate this or not. Luckily I found my old taste notes so doing it again. Notes are from the release in 2011. Allot of rubber and plastic in the smell and taste. Not as bad as Sorachi Ace and I do get some fruity aromas in this one. Some fresh berries and tropical fruits. However something must have gone wrong with this beer.

Backlog, vertical tasting of all 4 in the Beer Temple (tap), shortly after release. Golden to amber color, white head. Aroma’s: resinous, fruit (not so clearly lychee as for instance Mikkeller’s Nelson Sauvin Single Hop). Retronasal there’s sesame, roast, resin, fruits. Flavor is herbal, some acidity from the CO2, and moderate bitter. Medium bodied. Finishes with a firm bitterness (good burp).

Muy potente, de olor fresquísimo, muy afrutada y tropical, amarga, de textura delicada, una pena que no la vuelvan a hacer, pero esperemos que nos sigan deleitando

The first time I tasted the Nelson Sauvin hop, it was the start of a love affair. This beer truly makes the brilliance of the Nelson Sauvin stand out.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330 ml bottle sampled in 2011. Pretty clear, golden body with a nice, dense off-white head. Strong citric abd tropical fruit aroma with ripe mangos and pine. Flavor as expected from aroma, tropical/citric, ripe mangos and pine. Balanced good bitterness and a fine malt base with some caramel. Medium body and bitter aftertaste. Nice, the hop profile is more obvious here than other single hop Nelsons I have sampled.
