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!

3fourths (8229) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 26, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 30, 2014 Bottle. Hazy pale gold with a short-lived white head. Signature Nelson Sauvin fruity nose of melon rind, white grape, bubble gum, fruit cocktail overload. Pear and banana yeast esters. Clean fermentation. Medium body, sweet and effervescent with relatively high bitterness and tart pulpiness that I would guess is the grape must. With that the finishing hops seem overdone.

TH28 (148) - - FEB 28, 2014
Appearance is a cloudy pale yellow with a creamy white foam cap. Aroma is peppery, grapefruit, apricots, with Belgian yeast esters of clove. Taste is a slightly tart citrus, white grape juice, and peppery saison yeast. Mouthfeel is light and highly carbonated. Finishes very dry with peppery spice and a vinous grape taste. Overall a really light, citrus forward and refreshing saison that doesn’t overpower with spice.
