CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - OCT 21, 2012
On cask at Frisco Grille: pours a clear bright golden brass with a few stray white bubbles. Has a fresh resinous citrus hop nose with some light malty sweetness. Body starts with good fullness and light carbonation with a lightly toasted pale malty sweetness and plenty of resiny hop flavor and bitter balance before a drier smooth bittersweet finish. True to style and good usage of one of the better hop varieties available.

sebletitje (6326) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUN 1, 2013
Draft @ Hoppy Loft. Orangée, col blanc crémeux moyen. Arôme est malté, note de drêche avec un houblon qui reste modéré. Le côté Sauvin reste assez discret contribuant à cet ajout fruité et herbacé typique. Palais est malté avec un léger côté grillé-caramel pour un fruité et cette signature de Sauvin qui se retrouve noyé dans une marée de malts. Bière reste trop monodimensionnelle avec un profil alcoolisé qui est, pour moi, trop important pour mettre en avant le caractère du Nelson Sauvin.

Draft at pony bar with streets. Pours a deep copper amber body with thick white lacing. Aroma is weed and dank herb. Mouthfeel is medium with notes of funky citrus, light bitter grapefruit, dank herb and pine. Great.
