Kauge (445) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 28, 2015
Bottle at Sip (€ 5.30). BB 10/2016. Hazy amber colour. Creamy white top with excellent retention and lacing. Nose... like someone had an accident... I wouldn’t say it’s like white wine, rather like green veggies... (in a fart)... grassy, almost cannabis-like... by no means I can say this is any good. I do like beers that use NS but this showcase here is fckn mad. I just don’t like it. The pissy NS mellows when warmer, almost making it seem ok. Taste has more of a white wine character. Quite sweet, fruity, and fairly bitter. Kind of a raspberry and cherry moment there. Some enjoyable spiciness. Nice balance. Body is on lighter side of medium, whereas carbonation is near flat. It’s soft and creamy on the palate. Overall? I don’t like NS. So in the aroma department I consider this horrible. Yet it tastes and feels nice. Will try another NS showcase in a mo.

Koelschtrinker (11518) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - FEB 8, 2015

Bontus (654) - Flanders, BELGIUM - FEB 3, 2015
Bottle, 33cl, Geers. Pours hazy yellow to light orange. Creamy head. Grape bitter nose. Not as oily/aromatic as the Citra one. Medium to low carbonation. Alcohol very hidden. Great drinkability. Nelson Sauvin lacks punch to carry the aroma on its own, pale ale body leaves all for the hops.

Zwiebel88 (285) - GERMANY - JAN 11, 2015
Zitrus, Trauben, helle Früchte. Wunderbare Balance am Gaumen, schöner Malzkörper, angenehm bitter. Top.

bursprak (909) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JAN 3, 2015
Bottle split two ways. Hazy orange pour with a generous head. Again as juicy as the others in this series. I pick up sweet green apples, green grapes and has the same sweet malty backbone as the others. My least favourite in the series but still very tasty.

McWorta (757) - LUXEMBOURG - JAN 3, 2015
Orange, light amber colour aith a light hazy hue. Frothy lasting medium dark white head with good lacings. Aromas of orange, faint notes of sweet white grapes, gooseberry, dried earth, some caramel malts and floral faintly herbal notes develop. Lightly effervescent qnd lisck textured with a medium body. Fruity gooseberry, grape sweetness up front coherently developping in balance supported by a subtle yet noticeable malt centre and harmonic hop bitterness. Lasting pleasant finish and highly palateable!

PriorL (2313) - Gent, BELGIUM - DEC 31, 2014
Bottle at home, shared with Mathieu87. Compared the Amarillo, Citra, Mosaic, Nelson and Simcoe. APPEARANCE: clear blond beer, small stable white head. NOSE: fruity, sweet, some alcohol. TASTE: fruity, sweet, lots of pine, nice!

grubypawel (152) - - DEC 29, 2014
Pours hazy light Amber with a rich firm long lasting head and beautiful lacing. An initial aroma of grape juice turns into passion fruit and hints of resin. A full-bodied taste with a proper bitter finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

angel77 (1184) - oviedo, SPAIN - DEC 29, 2014
Botella de 33 cl del rincón de la cerveza tomada en Oviedo en el momento el 29-12-2014. Con fecha de cons pref para antes de 18-12-2015. color anaranjado oscuro turbio con espuma blanca persistente. Aromas y sabores de maltas con toques ligeros afrutados, destacando matices dulces de cereales, galletas, pan de higos, acabando con un suave amargo mas o menos duradero. Cuerpo medio con 8.9 vol que se notan en todo momento con cierta densidad en boca. Bastante buena, tal vez la mas ""exótica"" de las cinco. para repetir sin duda.

Idiosynkrasie (4365) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - DEC 28, 2014
330ml bottle. Hazy, bright orangey golden with average to huge, thick, creamy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, orangey off-white head. Intense tropical fruity aroma, passion fruit, mango, peach, a slightly herbal touch. Taste delivers identical flavours, crips even peppery, biting bitterness, underlying malt sweetness. Nevertheless not on the same outstanding level as other versions.
