5 Hop winter ale barrel reserve shows the benefit of oak ageing. The beer still displays its typical Nelson hoppy nose with subtle oak character and the palate is extra smooth and creamy, with almost honeyed characters.

330ml bottle. Considerable sediment, so clarity will depend on how you store and pour this orange ale with a stiff, pale orange, persistent head. Medium body with vigorous carbonation. Nose is dampened by pillow of head, but towards the end of the glass I get some pine hops. Pine, singed caramel, honey, tea and subtle oakiness towards the finish. Short, balanced finish. Smooth and tasty, but room for improvement.

375 ml cork and wire bottle Rich apricot bronze with a persistant rich head. Fairly muted nose, sweet fruity with a toucy of light perfume. Palate borders on the sweeter side. Fruitcake, a touch of the barrel shows thru but it’s lots the hop complexity, flavour and overall appealf it’s unaged brother.
