3.63/5  rDev n/a
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Bottle: Poured a cloudy and hazy dirty beige color ale with a rather large dirty white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of wheat malt with some fruity hoppy notes is quite interesting. Taste is also dominated by fruity ester with light tropical fruit notes and some lightly sweet wheat malt notes. Body is full with limited filtration and good carbonation. I quite enjoyed the mix between Nelson Sauvin but could be improved with lower ABV and more hops upfront.

Bottle from Peluso in Montreal.

A - Murky dark orange pour with good carbonation coming up to a two finger thick off white creamy head. Half finger of retention with decent rings of lace.

S - Mango, sweet tropical fruits, orange, candy. A bit grapey.

T - Lot's of juicy hops and citrus. Same characteristics with mango, sweet tropical fruits, lot's of orange, a bit floral. A bit of alcohol. Candy? Really fruity.

M - Good mildish end of medium body, medium to full body, tropical dry finish.

O/D - Alcohol needs to be hidden a bit better, otherwise this is pretty good. Nice Nelson Sauvin character. Quite drinkable. Can definitely pick up on the vinous character of Nelson Sauvin. The hops fit the stlye well.
