3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pros: Excellent look. Naturally carbonated. Nose has some serious hop power with the Nelson Sauvin showing its mandarin orange and tangerine character. It takes on more of a peach character on the palate. Not a very floral or piney hop to me, but quite fruity. Nice expression of the hop. Fun to taste.
Cons: While it is unquestionably well brewed, I don’t like the hop, at least as the sole element in the beer. The fruitiness of the hop became overbearing for my palate, but it’s cool to know that hops can get this fruity.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
white wine, zabaione, tarte au citron, lemon zest nose, some hints of white pepper and pineapple - oh what a nice aberration from the average good old IPA. Tastewise a bit disappointing: Rough, earthy, foamy with a harsh finish setting an end to those nosing aromas showing up one last time, as a faint, distant memory.
