COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Fresh sauvignon blanc juice fermented with pilsner wort brewed an extravagant late addition of Nelson Sauvin hops. Vin Nouveau meet Sauvin Nouveau in a vintage harvest pilsner of crisp and intense aromatic fruit complexity, where the flavours of beer and wine intertwine so closely it’s almost indecent. Surely it can’t be wrong if it feels this right? This beer was made possible by the generous assistance of the award winning Palliser Estate Wines of Martinborough.

Draft at the brewery. Clear bright golden color with a fizzier white head. Aroma is really nice, lots of white grape, stone fruit, slight tropical notes, with some sweet dough. The flavor is quite vinous, lots of sauv blanc, mildly sweet with the tiniest hint of bitterness. Medium-bodied and lively. Quite good and interesting.

[8377-20160529] Tap. White grape grassy hops aroma. Clear, yellow body with a foamy white head. Straw grains and sweet floral hops flavour. Light-medium body cannot hide the alcohol after awhile. Interesting. (7/3/7/4/14) 3.5~

2016-05-29. Crisp yellow body, small white head. Aroma is very interesting, sort of musky funky grape, may actually be partly coming from something around me - not sure. Notes of grass and lemon. 7+ Flavour is fairly fruity, modest grapes, vinous character, light grassy undertones. Moderate alcohol. Average bodied palate, good carbonation. Tasty. 7/3/7-8/3/15+ On tap at Garage Project - Aro 91, Wellington, NZ.

Bottle. Clear yellow gold, massive white rocky cap. Aroma of funky yeast, grape skin, light lemon/lime citrus juice, wet straw. Taste is sweet, bitter, and slightly salty. Might be my sweat or residual ocean in my moustache. Palate is crisp, effervescent, with a medium-dry finish. 8.5%?! Extremely well balanced.
