3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From tap @Fermentoren, København. Slightly hazed, pure gold colored body. Low blond head. Tropical-fruity hop nose, and a whiff of light toasted malts. Taste is on the sweet side. Clean, restrained malt body. Fruity hop flavor, not very bitter though. Well-bodied for a 4.6% beer. Soft mouthfeel. Light bitter-sweet endnotes. A pretty nice summer seasonal.

Cloudy orange color, smallish white head. Mix of malty sweet, hoppy fruity, berries scent. Malty, bitter, berry taste. Spritzy mouthfeel, medium bitterness. Nice, refreshing, but also rather non-complex and one-dimensional.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours a cloudy orange with a frothy off-white head. Good lacing. Tart, citrusy and creamy hop aroma, feels somewhat stale; the tart and creamy notes somewhat reminds me rhubarb porridge, although there’s no actual rhubarb note. Don’t really know what to make of this. Flavour is mildly hoppy, with the same creamy note as in the aroma. Mildly bitter finish with a bit of citrus. Overall so-so; my previous encounters with Nelson Sauvin have been glorious, but this one isn’t doing it for me; that creamy note is putting me off. Also, the flavour was too weak. 25.08.12.
