COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The harvest has been hopped to the hilt using fresh hop cones straight from the nearby Rostrevor hop garden. The variety of hop is unique to the gardens research block. The variety was selected for "The harvest" due to its big orange and citrus aromas, with the fresh hop being added to the kettle as well as the conditioning tank. As for how the hop character translate into the beer, well open it and find out.

skortila (5850) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - FEB 27, 2017
Old note. The aroma has grain, citrus, pine. Bit hazy, yellow coloured beer with a thin head. The taste is light bitter, has citrus, pine, grain. Easy drinking beer. Nice sessio ale.

Cybercat (5832) - Georgia, USA - FEB 14, 2016
Taps hazy honey golden with a thick pale buff head. Aroma features hay hoppy and fresh malt notes riding a good citrus undertone. Flavor is hoppy and citrus, the latter mainly Mandarin orange plus a snip of grapefruit. A bit of malt pops up as well. Firm body has fizz to spare. Harvest one, mate!

An unusual find on tap in Amsterdam , but well worth it. Was nice and hazy with minimal head and had a heavy grapefruit flavour with a dry, bitter aftertaste.

Draft @ beer temple. Pours a clear pale color with a nice, frothy head. Aroma is full of hops resins. Tangerine, orange, grapefruit. Flavor is incredibly hoppy. Nice balanced bitter. Very juicy.

UPDATED: APR 19, 2013 Bottle, 12C. Pours pale gold with a large fluffy white head. Smells of grapefruit, blood oranges and a little resin with an odd (but not unpleasant) Wit-like yeast note - although a lot less than some others look to have found. The hop aroma is fresh but mild. There’s light nectarine sweetness underneath aromatic but modest bitterness. Utterly frivolous throwing around of fresh hops with just enough malt to make it work. Fresh and lovely seasonal session beer. [3.6]

[5/11] 2011 version: as above, but with more tropical fruit notes in both aroma and taste - lychees and passionfruit I suppose - and a touch of spice in the finish. That (odd yeast?) character is there again, but I still don’t mind it. The hops are interesting and very unusual. [3.6]

[4/12]2012 version. Hazy yellowish orange with a modest white head. Aroma of oranges, lychees, gooseberries, menthol, marijuana. Fruity with a dry and quite bitter finish that’s still overmatched by the green hops. [3.6]

2013 version - again different hops. Aroma is less tropical and green - a little cleaner with lime joining lychees and passionfruit. Bitterness is higher and the finish is dry and buzzing. Liked this version better. [3.7]

UPDATED: JUL 5, 2011 Very surprised by this one’s rating. Aroma is fantastic. Lots of tropical fruits. Lychee, passionfruit, citrus. Less fruits in the flavour but still a little bit there, hops play a small role. Light pale malts back the beer. Much better than some are letting on to be

PotjeBier (3336) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 12, 2012
On tap @ Beer Temple. Pale blonde color, hazy. Large white rocky head. Aroma’s boast out of the glass: citrus, resin, herbal hops, very refreshing, acidic almost, with something funky retronasal (smoke? wood?). Flavor is very mild in comparison, grainy, lightly bitter. Body is thin. Medium bitter finish, more aroma than bitter from the hops. Slightly dry. Interesting, but a big difference between aroma & flavor.

3.8
Davros (3178) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 14, 2010
Pours amber with a large head. Nose shows ridiculously fresh hops... like that green, just picked flowers and fresh mown grass smell. Lots of resin, very sweet, very spicy. Amazing. Plenty of cookie dough malt to back it up as well. Loads more cookie dough as a flavour, along with a fair bit of bready malt before transitioning to a hint of grainy-ness. some nutty notes in there as well, pecans or something. Lively carbonation is a bit excessive, but the body is quite smooth.

3.5
bluevegie (3073) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 4, 2011
Slightly cloudy yellow with lasting head. Strong hop nose, tropical fruits and citrus, pleasant bitterness in the taste, drinks well though a touch more body would do the trick.
