COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Beer and ballet – the perfect Pas de Deux. Brewed by Garage Project for the Royal New Zealand Ballet, Hops en Pointe teases the traditional boundaries between high and low culture. Brewed with premium German malts, Nelson Sauvin hops and finished with champagne yeast, the result is a pale gold lager with a crisp, clean palate, rich tropical fruit aromas and tight champagne bubbles forming a dense white head of foam. Available at all good barres.

En riktigt god lager, jag diggar verkligen Nelson S. Mycket smak men hade önskat lite mer beska. Söt, fruktig, bröd, malt, krispig, gräs. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

@ Basunen 16-7-8: Frisk och humlig och på så sätt trevlig. Ganska enkel och inte mycket pilsnerstuk över den. Mer pale ale.

Samuel214 (441) - SWEDEN - JUN 26, 2016
Burk från SB, Garage Project mixpack. Blekgul klar vätska med bubbligt vitt skum. Söt, fruktig doft av grön vindruva, päron, päroncider och lite äppelmust. Bubblig, förhållandevis stor, torr och oljig kropp. I smaken grön druva, torra vitvinstoner och pigg beska från grönt humle. Även här päron och lite toner från grönt äpple. Bra!

UPDATED: JUN 23, 2016 Taster at the cellar door. Nothing particularly exciting in the flavour but the tight champagne style bubbles give it a wonderful feel.
