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%

thirstyrabbit (1448) - Tallinn, - DEC 29, 2012
Bottle. Light golden body with a medium head. Initially hoppy aroma starts later revealing some strange notes of cheese. Interesting but not desirable in a pale ale. Dry hoppy taste with low sweetness and medium bitter finish. I wouldn’t call it very "fruity" - there’s more of a white wine dryness dominating in the palate. It’s good if you can look past the cheese aromas.

typickylev (10) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUL 10, 2015
0.5l bottle. Clear yellow colour with nice white head. Aroma is citrusy, bit of tangerine, taste grassy and citrusy as well, bit of malt. Interesting but nothing special. Slightly bitter, very refreshing easy to drink "summer" beer but was expecting more.

Fľaša. Priesvitná zlatá farba, biela pena. Vôňa krásna citrusová, najmä liči, v pozadí chmeľ. Chuť sladová, sladká, citrusová, jemne mandarinky a pozadie liči. Pekná horká dochuť. Plnšie telo, stredná nasýtenosť. Veľmi piteľné.

Une bičre trčs raffraîchissante, houblonnée et fruitée avec une belle bouche amčre qui évoque presque une IPA, idéale pour entamer une soirée.
