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%

Geiserich (3268) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - DEC 28, 2011
Bottle: Fruity nose of hops, kiwi, citrus and elderberries. Flavor is mainly hoppy and a bit malty, nice notes of white wine, citrus, herbal hops and grapefruit. Light to medium bitter, dry finish. Marvelous.

DuffMan (6439) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 26, 2011
Bottle. Hazy bright yellow, bubbly white head that retains deep into the glass. Aroma is quite intense; lots of lime, gooseberry, guava. Lip-smacking tart/bitter fruit hops load the palate: lime zest, guava, feijoa (there’s a fruit I haven’t thought about in a while!). So good!

Pale amber color, nice off-white head that sticks around. The nose is nicely grassy and breezy. Pineapple and citrus notes on display. The taste is lightly sweet with a somewhat bitter finish. Mouthfeel is light and simple. Good beer for spring/summer.

niquillis (812) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 11, 2011
On cask at jdw, stone. Pours golden with a thin head. Apparently this tastes of kiwi but it was more like a grapefruit fruit beer. Nice but due to the sweetness was a bit sickly. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

strongpieman (1458) - Mount Airy, Maryland, USA - DEC 10, 2011
Draft. Pale yellow, clear, almost no head. Light fruitiness, very mild aroma - almost nothing (may have been served too cold). Not one I’ll go back to.

Tmoney99 (10400) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 7, 2011
Bottle. Poured a clear copper color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate grass hop and tropical fruit aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. I shared this with a freind.
