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%

Braudog (6014) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAY 29, 2011
Bottle. Pours golden and bright, active and bubbly, with a soapy, sudsy white head. The aroma is pour fruit, abundant with tropical sweetness. For once a beer lives up to its description -- sweet and grassy with a very light body and a round fruity flavor. Surprising contribution from England. (#4125, 5/28/2011)
