Floral nose. Golden cloudy body and with reasonable lacing. Fruity taste with a long dry bitter aftertaste. Strongly carbonated/furry mouthfeel.

Not a style that I like for pilsner as this is quite dry which goes against the fresh vibrancy that I associate with this hop.

3fourths (8037) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 29, 2014
Sauvignon Blanc wine, pear, mineral water, floral esters, burnt pineapple. Soft body, moderately bitter but strongly hoppy. Savory soft mouthfeel, fine carbonation, off dry with moderately strong acidity. Pretty one dimensional but I guess it’s supposed to be. So it’s wine-like in the nose with little malt appeal but it’s a better Nelson Sauvin presentation than most single hop pilsner tried in NZ. Good aromatic representation of the hop.

kiwianer (3339) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 7, 2013
The head is robust, the body gold. It smells hoparomatic, flowery, aromatic. The taste is hoparomatic, flowery, a bit fruity, bit grape, natural, aromatic. 3.6

Rangi (583) - NEW ZEALAND - OCT 26, 2013
Nice poor refreshing taste, flavour is a subtle but distinct nelson sauvin. Nice enjoyable beer.

Cantabrian (826) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 19, 2013
Good looking pale lager, with a golden cloudiness and nice creamy white head. The aroma was not pleasant to my taste -> too spicy, more like a Koelsch. Flavours did not help either. I was expecting fruits, but got more of grass and a whole medina of spices. Very bitter, but not to my liking.

Travlr (11900) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 17, 2013
Draft in Woolston. Clear golden yellow color, white edge head. Aroma of damp earth and fruit. Taste is dank fruit and straw. Tasty. Good showcase for the hop.

Pdubyah (386) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 27, 2013
Rated on a bottle that was past it’s best by, but only by 3 weeks. A bit thin, lacking in any real punch and finishes a bit weak. However on a hot day in the summer this would be a cracker of a beer, sadly it’s mid-winter and it’s not.

DylansDad (307) - NEW ZEALAND - APR 19, 2013
500ml bottle well before best before date yet after reading others descriptions, I’d say mine has lost a bit of freshness. Delicate lemony citrus and slight pepper and typical pilsner yeast(?) float lightly on the thin watery light bread or crackery base. A real summer drink.
