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%

(50 cl bottle, slightly past its best before-date) Slightly hazy, yellow-golden coloured beer with a white head. Aroma has lots of tropical fruits (kiwi, passion fruit, some citrus), white grapes, and fresh grass. The fruity aroma is very strong on the nose, in the mouth the grassy elements gain more weight, along with the flat bitterness that kicks in. Hardly any sweetness. Bitter finish with long-lasting hoppy aroma. Delicious!

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.

Scottishchris (424) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 12, 2015
Bottle from beerhive. Very pale gold, straw, white fluffy head. Grass, flowers and dough. Nice soft fizz without the harshness that Thornbridge sometimes have in the bottle. Light body, bitter with grassy floral finish. Very refreshing and a bit different. Good stuff.
