UPDATED: MAY 30, 2013 650ml bottle. Murky pineapple juice color, quickly dissipating head.. Spicy but tropical smell. White grape, candy, mandarin orange. Delicious aroma. The flavor is okay. Sauvin hops dominate, the malt bill is rather buttery which heavily detracts from the beer. Definitely vinous and it doesn’t blend with the butter. The corriander is also quite noticeable. It loses the buttery characteristic as you go and stays a very nelson-y light drinking beer.
Got a bottle as majestic. It is better. Like a sauviny dipa with no bitterness. blklab2007 (2120) - Connecticut, USA - DEC 7, 2012
22oz Batch #53. Pour has a deep golden color and a covering of thick white head. Aroma has plenty of nelson hops, some light spicing, citrus rind, and a bit of toffee like malt. Mouth feel comes across light and the carbonation is solid. Flavor again leads in with the hops and they get quite dry and catty with some bitterness picking up. The citrus gets a bit muted and there is a light spice that mixes well with the malted side making me feel the English thing going on. They certainly are some zesty hops and the beer showcases them well. alexsdad06 (10436) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - DEC 30, 2012
22 oz. bottle. Pours an orange amber color with a medium sized white head. The aroma had nice citrus (orange, grapefruit) and resiny hops, orange peel,light spices and mild white grape notes. The malts were very much in the background. The flavor was also more hop forward; citrus, orange, grapefruit, white grapes, herbal, with light malts and mild bitterness. Medium bodied. jmagnus87 (2912) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - OCT 22, 2013

Straw colored pour with enough suds to wash a truck. Yeasty doughy nose and taste. Quite enjoyable taste but champagne like carbonation.

22oz bomber shared by jcwatts! Labeled Majestic. Pours a hazy light orange color with a finger of fluffy white head. Aroma of tangerines, pineapple, citrus, and mango. Big taste of tangerines up front, followed by wheat, citrus zest, bitter grapefruit, and light spices. JAF737300 (1291) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 26, 2012
Pours orange amber with a 2 finger head. Nice notes of light pine which drive into a mild fruit and spice note. Malts show up in the finish along with a light spiced note. drowland (8766) - Georgia, USA - DEC 31, 2012
