VERY hoppy Pilsner. Big peach and grape like characteristics. Full bodied for the style. Quite unique and a top notch beer.

jercraigs (10093) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 22, 2016
2016-05-20. Yellow body, small white head. Aroma is pleasant, fruity notes of lemon and another fruit I cant nail down. Flavour is fruity, lightly bitter, interesting ok (typo?) character. Musky lemon and something I cant place. Average bodied palate, moderate carbonation. Very drinkable. 7/3/7/3/16 On tap at The Twisted Hop, Christchurch, NZ.

Pear and fruity aroma. Poured from tap. Smells like it would be a sour. Has the appearance of a glass of wine poured into a pint glass, hence the name.

heyden (137) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 24, 2014
Floral nose. Golden cloudy body and with reasonable lacing. Fruity taste with a long dry bitter aftertaste. Strongly carbonated/furry mouthfeel.

omega (900) - NEW ZEALAND - JUN 2, 2014
Not a style that I like for pilsner as this is quite dry which goes against the fresh vibrancy that I associate with this hop.

3fourths (9280) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 29, 2014
Sauvignon Blanc wine, pear, mineral water, floral esters, burnt pineapple. Soft body, moderately bitter but strongly hoppy. Savory soft mouthfeel, fine carbonation, off dry with moderately strong acidity. Pretty one dimensional but I guess its supposed to be. So its wine-like in the nose with little malt appeal but its a better Nelson Sauvin presentation than most single hop pilsner tried in NZ. Good aromatic representation of the hop.

kiwianer (3428) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 7, 2013
The head is robust, the body gold. It smells hoparomatic, flowery, aromatic. The taste is hoparomatic, flowery, a bit fruity, bit grape, natural, aromatic. 3.6

Nice poor refreshing taste, flavour is a subtle but distinct nelson sauvin. Nice enjoyable beer.

Cantabrian (1076) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 19, 2013
Good looking pale lager, with a golden cloudiness and nice creamy white head. The aroma was not pleasant to my taste -> too spicy, more like a Koelsch. Flavours did not help either. I was expecting fruits, but got more of grass and a whole medina of spices. Very bitter, but not to my liking.
