COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

jzzbassman (1560) - Arlington, Texas, USA - MAR 19, 2016
Bottled. Pours gold with a fizzy quickly disappearing head. Best think about this is the nose, which has so much of that Nelson tropical fruit along with yeasty bubblegum. When we move to flavor, until it warms that phenolic banana is somewhat off-putting but that is a personal thing for me as it’s a flavor I have never liked (hence my dislike of hefeweizens. I don’t really taste the grape must but I wish it had finished drier.

PartyFowle (942) - - FEB 17, 2016
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.

nickd717 (4041) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 12, 2016
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.
