3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
From Bottle Shop, drank after HKUST visit. Beautiful bright hazy golden pour with big fluffy white head and foamy legs. Smells of Nelson Sauvin hop - plenty of grape as well as mango and peach, woody. Biscuity lightly spiced malt too. Taste is wood chip floral hop, dry grape and mineral. Body is smooth, very fine carbonation (from the champagne yeast). Very interesting, fine and refreshing. Slick, fruity (grape + citrus), woody, fizzy.

Bottle from Bottle Shop at home. Bright golden slightly hazy translucent pour with foamy white head. Vertical strips of bubbles like champagne. Looks great. Aroma is fresh crisp pilsner hoppiness. Taste is really clean - fresh hoppiness, smooth slightly sweet malts, crisp champagne carbonation. Lingering pilsner bitterness. The best version of what I'd imagined/hoped after reading the description. Would definitely get again.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear golden body with a white head. Strong hoppy aroma of tropical fruits. Strong flavour of tropical fruits, with distinct notes of mango. Light sweet taste with a moderate to heavy bitter finish. Medium to light body, dry, quite lively carbonation. An unusually hopped lager!

Pours a mostly clear light gold with pillowy white head. Big hop aroma, while very pleasant, overshadows the pils malts. Catty hops, rather than tropical fruits as on the label. Crisp, bitter hop flavor. Ahh, here are the tropical fruits: mango. Along with some grapefruit zest and pith. Dry finish with a lingering bitterness. This could get me to the ballet.
