COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
With all the new season’s NZ hops in the country, we thought it would be time for a beer to showcase our favourites: Nelson Sauvin, Moteuka and Riwaka – adding them by the sackload at various stages of the brewing process. After fermentation, this beer is aged on Kiwi fruit to take those tropical fruit flavours to another level.

Scopey (7884) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 23, 2012
Cask at the Hope ’The Final Countdown’ Beer Fest. It pours straw yellow, with a thin white head. The nose is custard, kiwi, grapefruit, hay and grass. The taste is lime, lemon, zesty, straw, kiwi, grapefruit and grass, with a dry, bitter finish. Light-medium body and soft carbonation. Well balanced and enjoyable.

Theydon_Bois (10618) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2012
Gravity dispense at Bitter Virtue Off Licence - St Denys (So’ton) - 09/09/12. Pale yellow with a thin white head. Citrus aroma, kiwi fruit evident, hops and a little pale malt. Taste follows, a little more tropical fruits also present and a hoppier bite than the nose suggested. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation leading to a dry finish.
