COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The harvest has been hopped to the hilt using fresh hop cones straight from the nearby Rostrevor hop garden. The variety of hop is unique to the gardens research block. The variety was selected for "The harvest" due to its big orange and citrus aromas, with the fresh hop being added to the kettle as well as the conditioning tank. As for how the hop character translate into the beer, well open it and find out.

Ungstrup (28463) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 1, 2012
Draft. A hazy yellow beer with a huge white head. The aroma has notes of yeast, lemons, straw, and a bit of wheat. The flavor is sweet with notes of lemons, hay, and a bit of malt, leading to a bitter finish. The body is light. Disappointing for a fresh hop beer.

PotjeBier (1442) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 12, 2012
On tap @ Beer Temple. Pale blonde color, hazy. Large white rocky head. Aroma’s boast out of the glass: citrus, resin, herbal hops, very refreshing, acidic almost, with something funky retronasal (smoke? wood?). Flavor is very mild in comparison, grainy, lightly bitter. Body is thin. Medium bitter finish, more aroma than bitter from the hops. Slightly dry. Interesting, but a big difference between aroma & flavor.

Erasmus_ro (1192) - Alabama, USA - SEP 11, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 7, 2013 Tap @ Beer Temple 08/09/12 Pours a hazy yellow with a large, white head. Aroma is kiwifruit, loads of exotic fruit. Taste is lots of kiwifruit, passion fruit, grapefruit, light dry maltiness on the finish. Aftertaste is the exotic fruit line-up again. Palate is light.
