COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Fresh sauvignon blanc juice fermented with pilsner wort brewed an extravagant late addition of Nelson Sauvin hops. Vin Nouveau meet Sauvin Nouveau in a vintage harvest pilsner of crisp and intense aromatic fruit complexity, where the flavours of beer and wine intertwine so closely its almost indecent. Surely it cant be wrong if it feels this right? This beer was made possible by the generous assistance of the award winning Palliser Estate Wines of Martinborough.

explosivedog (659) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 28, 2016
650ml bottle. Aroma is a sauvignon blanc with grass, gooseberry and a little sweaty note. Taste is huge juicy gooseberry. Its tart, big grape and it hides the underlying pilsner well. Delicious, but the chateau aro is definitely the best of the series (though this is much more affordable).

Hoponmate (307) - NEW ZEALAND - SEP 28, 2016
Very grassy and pungent sauvignon gooseberry smell. Taste is the same delicious taste. Not overly pilsnery. More refreshing and enjoyable. Very close to its namesake inspiration.
