COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask & Cold Filtered Bottle; Regular.
Typical of a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc wine, this wonderful South Pacific Ale has a great grassy nose with kiwi fruits in abundance. The wonderful fruity mouth gives way to a great bitter finish. 5.2%

Joakgust (872) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 10, 2014
Bottle. Semi hazy golden beer with a large white head. Aroma is fruity with notes of citrus, tropical fruit, grass and gooseberry. Flavor is fruity with notes of citrus, grains, herbs, grass and hop resin. Ok, pretty balanced.

kingvit (142) - - AUG 9, 2014
Aroma: orange, lime; Appearance: clear urine, medium foamy head; Taste: medium bitterness, slight sourness, slight sweetness; Palate: bitter finish, light body, soft carbonation, slick texture Immensly citric ale, pretty dry but more bitter than astringent. You rarely encounter Nelson Sauvin in this concentration... Very drinkable.

cirzen (5) - FRANCE - AUG 6, 2014 does not count
Pours from 500ml bottle a bright golden colour, thin head, a little lacing. Nose is grass and mouth watering tropical fruit. Taste of papaya and apricot like hops, rounded malt moving to a slightly tart bitterness. Something is slightly amiss but I can’t place what. Mouthfeel is full and good. Interesting but not perfect.

Senka (447) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 28, 2014
50cl. BBE 02.12.14. Strong aroma of pine and spruce. Fruity and somewhat resembles Brewers Gold (just made a homebrew and have some left to sniff). Pours clear pale lager like, with a thick creamy head that stays - and that makes it APA. Strong carbonation alongside medium body makes and extremely easily drinkable and refreshing beer. Tempting and lovely. Thx Anton! P.S. Actually I remembered having it @Pudel Bar Tallinn - got so overwhelmed with the taste, that I forgot to tick it.

500ml bottle from Waitrose. Medium bubbly white head, some nice lacing. Clear golden body. Big tropical nose, mango and pineapple. Flavour is tropical fruit and lots of grassy bitterness on the finish. Medium carbonation, mouthfeel is quite big. The Nelson Sauvin shines here.

Beerheart65 (1000) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 22, 2014
Just slightly hazy golden, dense almost cheese-like white thin head that persists nicely and leaves ok lacing. Mild citrus, notes of tropicality, mild pine, nuanced malt underneath this. Round soft feel, dry and mildly bitter, low carbonation, medium long finish, medium body. Tasty and soft toned nuanced and quite refreshing, nice.

melush (625) - SPAIN - JUL 20, 2014
Botella de 50 cl, adquirida en Slainte. Color dorado claro. Sabor a lupulo, ligeramente frutal, muy ligeramente especiado. Extremadamente refrescante y facil de beber.

tinylightsrecs (178) - - JUL 12, 2014
Bottle from Glug Newcastle. Pours light cloudy gold colour. Beautiful stuff - extremely flavoursome fruity hoppy pale ale - extremely refreshing and one of the best examples of one of the UK's best breweries

Soft and extremely balanced pale ale, citric and refreshing with grains and hops. Very nice but jaipur is better!

mzaar (1565) - Varberg, SWEDEN - JUN 24, 2014
På fat. Dimmigt guldfärgad med medelstort vitt skum. Såväl i smak som doft är det en hel del friska frukter, därtill en touch av karamell och tallbarr. Medelstor beska, medelsötma. Lättdrucken.
