3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
In the slightly darkened surroundings of Volstead, this beer looked for all money like a darkish IPA with only a suggestion of haze to betray its wheaty origins. The aromas are intensely tropical with bananas, passionfruit, guavas and some woody spices there. The aromas are reflected in the flavours with gratifying fruity bitterness, some spice and herbal grassiness being the hallmarks for me. It had a lengthy finish, but it wasnít until the bottom of the second pint I got to experience this because I kept going back for extra mouthfuls and a top-up. Were it not for me driving, it could have been a beautiful and enduring match, this beer and me.

Interestingly complex aroma with spicy flowers and tropical fruit. Similarly interesting taste with a nice balance between hops, malt, yeast, and spice and a crisp clean finish.

Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. Hazy golden coloured with a thin white head of foam. It has a lemon and spicy fruity flavour with vanilla, malt and herbal notes followed by a very dry, slight tart zesty fruit finish. Very good.

Bottle from Hop Burns. Aromas of peach, citrus and yeast. Medium fruity yeasty hit and plenty of bitterness coming through, touch of spice. On the boozy side.

23rd August 2015
Hazy gold beer, good pale cream colour head. Palate is airy and crisp. Thin creamy malts. Yeast. Little fresh orange, bitterish pith. Fairly strong bitterness develops. Not getting much Nelson here. Finishes smooth with touches of hop spice, citrus peel and lemon. Overall slightly disappointing, was hoping for much more Nelson from a NZ brewed beer!
