COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Named after a distinctive New Zealand hop, this single-hop saison has a subtle aroma of white grapes and a hint of spice from our house saison yeast. An addition of Muscat grape must during fermentation plays into the grape aromas from the hops and helps dry out the finish. This dry, refreshing saison pairs perfectly with warm weather!

TH28 (429) - - FEB 28, 2014
Appearance is a cloudy pale yellow with a creamy white foam cap. Aroma is peppery, grapefruit, apricots, with Belgian yeast esters of clove. Taste is a slightly tart citrus, white grape juice, and peppery saison yeast. Mouthfeel is light and highly carbonated. Finishes very dry with peppery spice and a vinous grape taste. Overall a really light, citrus forward and refreshing saison that doesnt overpower with spice.

Andrew196 (1768) - Katy, Texas, USA - APR 15, 2017
Nice pour, a tinted Chardonnay, glistening eggshell head. Aroma of melon, white grape peel, light woodiness. Honeydew on the tongue, slightly spritzy with a dry finish... Grape powers through to a lingering white grape/plum finish. Pretty good.

northropfrye (3443) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - APR 9, 2017
Light clear yellow body, very active carbonation, lots of foamy white lasting head. Sweet bubblegum yeasty vinous aroma. Taste is sweet yeasty, a faint hint of dryiness from the hops. Not bad.

lownote (583) - Austin, Alabama, USA - FEB 26, 2017
Pours a hazy light yellow with some head. Aroma is pleasant and grape like. Relatively muted yeast character. Some white wine like grapeness. Really lively mouth feel. Nice straw like malt flavor. Does have a little pepper and spice flavor in the background. Tasty straightforward saison.

KyotoLefty (9982) - Kyoto, JAPAN - FEB 4, 2017
Tap at Futas. Slightly hazy, light gold, with fine head. Nice nose of Nelson Sauvin, lemon, great hop flavor, light, spritzy, clean Belgian yeasy, some sulphur. Nice stuff.

Split a 6 pack of this with my Honkey. 11.2 oz bottle packaged on 2016.07.12. Pours clear yellow with a white head. Funky aroma. Not sure how much the grape must comes through. Honkey loves the Nelsons, so this 6 pack didnt last long.

badgerben (5044) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JAN 10, 2017
Hazy straw color with a large head. Aroma the of pinot gris and gooseberries. Tart, fruity flavor, very much like a pinot grigio. Berries and citrus. Light wheat. Effervescent.

drjay44 (3621) - Salida, Colorado, USA - DEC 24, 2016
Pours a medium gradually collapsing white head over a cloudy yellow (SRM 3) body.......nose is grape, lemon light vinous notes, mild malts, balance to the hops.......taste is mild lemon, vinous tones, slight malts,finishing with mild herbal hop bitterness, balance to the hops......mouth feel, medium body, mild alcohol, moderate carbonation with slight acid. The Nelson Sauvin dominates the malts and light yeast contributions. There are some hints of a Sauvignon Blanc wine from the hop. This is a nice beer, but not a particularly stylistically correct Saison. BJCP 7/3/14/4/6

Doesnt disappoint. Nice grape and hope nose. Light colored with a small head. Light palate and well carbonated. Flavors of spicy hops, fruit and some yeast.

JK (6046) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - NOV 4, 2016
Tap at Grizzlys. LIght yellow, like a wit. I was expecting it to be a little sour. Instead, it is a soft, effervescent saison. Under ripe pear, aome tangerine, and melon. Peach with a bigger sip. Very nice palate. Good.

vikingguy (1096) - Carver, Minnesota, USA - OCT 29, 2016
Very pale yellow, cloudy and white fizzy head. Lemon herbal aroma. Taste - slightly tart lemon, Belgian yeasty funk, light herbal hops that have just a hint of fruit and pine. Wheaty malt base. This is an interesting twist on a standard saison. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
