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%

JesseM (1155) - Margaritaville, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 12, 2012
500mL bottle from the El cee B-O. Pours a clearish bright gold with a large white head. Aroma flies out of the glass and punches your nose. Piney, minty, citrusy hops. Flavour is even better, as the fantastic hop characters are well balanced with a satisfying, surprisingly deep malt body. Honeycomb. Has this nice ’tropic fruit’ essence thing going on, with a medium feeling body. Surprisingly smooth for so much hop activity. Awesome stuff. Additional sentence fragment.

Zoe (8) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 12, 2012 does not count
Bottle from the LCBO AROMA: Intially a strong hoppy aroma that wafts from the glass- citrusy with grassy overtones - doesn’t last though. APPEARANCE: slightly cloudy lemon yellow with a white lacy head of fine bubbles TASTE: Moderate to high hop bitterness with a lingering citrus hop finish. Not much fruitiness unless it’s masked by the carbonation PALATE: lively carbonation, lightish body. Long citrusy slightly metallic finish OVERALL: Very drinkable.

GuillaumeCL (344) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 11, 2012
Bottle from the LCBO. Pours a clear pale copper with a bit of white head. Smell is predominantly grassy hops, with some sweet hints. Palate is good, just heavy enough to have its presence known, and excellent fine carbonation that’s not too strong. Taste is a bit lacking as the good hoppiness fades quickly only to be replaced with a weak bitter finish.

laiti (6832) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 10, 2012
50 cl bottle @ home, BBE 12.12.2012
Aroma is rather strong on hops with lots of gooseberry bush and hints of nettles. Flavour is rather hoppy with gooseberry bush, some nettles and hints of biscuits. Too much gooseberry bush here.

500 ml bottle. BBE 12.12.2012.
Pours a slightly cloudy yellow colour with a white lacy head. Aroma of really strong citrusy hops, some exotic fruitiness and gooseberries. Flavour of strong citrusy hops, exotic fruits, gooseberries, biscuity malts and hay. Medium bodied, decent carbonation and a bitter, fruity and a bit harsh finish. Pleasant.

solidfunk (4981) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JUN 8, 2012
Smell is hoppy and a little metallic. Theres a light fruit taste but not as strong as jaipur, which was a much better beer. Pours clear bubbly golden with bleached froth. Taste has straw, some bitterness but not much fruit. More than anything else I notice the straw. Decent, but not quite qorth the lcbo price at 5 bucks for a half litre.
