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!

Frothy white head. Hazy pale golden color. Dry lemony hoppy nose with a fair amount of funk. The Nelson hop isn’t so prominent until the finish and then tropical fruit lingers.
