3.93/5 rDev +6.2%
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a silly Samuel Adams tulip-pint glass. Moderate hand. No date on the label. This one reports 5.0% ABV.
A: Fairly clear, pale golden yellow-green. 1 finger of foamy, white head with good retention. Light lacing.
S: Fruity hop aroma with white grape character. Lemon. Pear. Faint grapefruit. Floral notes. Pepper. Reminiscent of white wine varietals. Nice.
T: Good, firm bitterness with a floral character initially and throughout. Light malt notes, grass, make a fleeting appearance, but are dominated. Dry finish. No alcohol presence.
M: Moderate carbonation with a light body makes for a satisfying gulper.
O: Very nice showcase for the Nelson Sauvin hop - smells great. Some of that is lost in the flavor, but overall this drinks well. Great session beer and would be very refreshing in warmer weather.

Pours the same color as an adjunct lager from the bottle, pale straw, yellow. Stirring up the yeast adds a finger high frothy white head and a solid haze. Good lacing and retention.
White grapes, floral with some citrus zest, lemon and grassy notes. Yeast adds some bread dough and pepper. Very floral and bright aroma.
Pale straw and thin malt with some bread dough and Belgian spice flavors of pepper and clove from the yeast. Hops add a more muted white grape and citrus zest flavor than in the nose but overall very consistent. Balancing bitterness on the finish.
Moderate body that could use a bit more carbonation to liven up the floral and bright qualities of this beer. No alcohol presence and very drinkable.
A fine beer showcasing the Nelson hops, Belgian yeast adds a unique quality in the blending of spice flavors. A bit more of the bright hop flavors and carbonation would definitely push this one over the top.

On tap at Barbara's At The Brewery in Los Angeles, CA.
Pours a clear yellow with a foamy off-white head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, and citrus zest. Taste is much the same with a honey and grapefruit finish. There is a mild hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that tasty and easy to drink.
