4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pretty standard blond beer color. It’s the smell and taste which are different from the typical blond. Very much the nelson sauvin hops that come through. Really nice aftertaste, very well balanced.

Draught @ Pikkulintu, Helsinki
Pours orange with a hazy head. Aroma has hints of spices and hops. Taste is surprisingly hoppy with notes of spices and fruits. Bitter and rather sweet finish. A nice take on the blonde style, Nelson Sauvin at its finest.
