Named after a distinctive New Zealand hop, this single-hop saison has a subtle aroma of white grapes and a hint of spice from our house saison yeast. An addition of Muscat grape must during fermentation plays into the grape aromas from the hops and helps dry out the finish. This dry, refreshing saison pairs perfectly with warm weather!

Nelson hops just edge the line of being too catty, adding funk and honeydew notes that really work well with the white pepper saison yeast. Flavor has bright, fresh pear and white grape and melon in the front, with a peppery saison-like finish that cleans things up. Lingering tannic sweetness. Nice balance.

Bottle pours mostly clear golden with a small fizzy white head. Funky aroma yet hoppy, with citrus and Muscat grape skins. Just the skins! Dry, tart, funky, hoppy flavor. Nicely complex. Medium-bodied, crisp, well carbonated. Really enjoyed it.

I normally expect a beer that is named after the hop variety used to be, well, hoppy but that is not really the case here, which is fine by me but might leave some dissapointed. This is a moderately cloudy brew w/ a thick, fine-bubbled head. It’s got some light banana notes along w/ some cloves and baked bread in the nose. It’s got a nice creamy texture w/ medium carb. It’s rather dry and fairly flavorful, though it drinks lighter than its 7.5% alcohol would have you expect. This is a solid beer but if you are seeking hops, look elsewhere.
