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%

UPDATED: JUL 26, 2012 Strong, slightly skunky aroma. The flavor has plenty of hops, with hints of fruit as they mention on the label. I taste some banana, in addition to kiwi, mango, and melon. Very unique.

Golden hazy yellow color with a very thick white head. Citrus aroma is very faint with spices. Strong hoppy and bitter taste. Slight citrus taste. Very strong IPA, but nothing is overwhelming.

sjogro (1572) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 21, 2015
Op tap bij Kompaan. Waterig, verfrissend, niet half waard wat het kostte. Backlog from 2015/09/17.

Calisky (2159) - ALSACE, FRANCE - DEC 19, 2015
Couleur jaune blonde, légère mousse. Nez houblonné fruité (ananas, note exotique, raisin blanc). Gout fruité, raisin blanc, leger ananas, un peu le kiwi (comme dis sur l’étiquette). Corps un peu leger et aromes moins intenses qu’une thornbridge habituelle, mais vraiment bonne et agréable.

5.2%ABV. South Pacific Pale Ale. Poured out of the bottle a pale cloudy blonde. Like a witbier. 4ºSRM. Nose has aromas of citrus, pine and sour pineapple. Mouthfeel is watery and carbonated. The palate is lightly sweet, with full bodied wheaty flavors of raw flour, bread dough and Wonder Bread. The finish is hoppy and brief. Pronounced, but not prolonged. A pleasant enough beer. Good for beginning hop heads.

Hartoloni (88) - - NOV 3, 2015
Pours a very clear gold. Aroma is as you would expect tropical fruit and lightly hopped. Taste is a very pleasant pineapple, apricot and apple. Nice light beer with a slightly bitter and grassy aftertaste. Very nice.
