Filled at the brewery about 2 hours ago.
Pours a light fizzy head that fades semi quickly with a bit of lacing, hazy golden sunset yellow orange colored beer, similar to a wheat beer. The color is nice but the head left something to be desired.
NOse brings plenty of fresh Nelson Sauvin hops, grassy floral with a little earthy twinge, bright musty citrusy fruit but more like a light lemon and little pineapple orange like, little musty grape skin like vinous quality, all that with a touch of a light sweet toasty grainy blond malt.
Taste brings some golden malts at first, a little sweetness, but at the same time a dry grainy bready kinda malt flavor, almost wheat like but not quite, little toasty almost biscuit also but not quite, but a fluffy feel. Then hops, light bitterness but nice musty flavor, again plenty of Nelson Sauvin flavors, little grassy hay and slight earthy, musty grape skin vinous must, little floral at the same time light citrusy fruit again, just a hint lemony and grapefruit rind, abd quite a bit of that slightly tannic musty fruit skin flavor. Finish is dry but somehow a bit sticky, bitterness increases nicely but not a ton, lingering grassy floral hops, with a touch of spiciness and some light vinous musty grape skin again.
Mouth is med to a bit lighter bodied, tons of fluffy effervescent carbonation.
Overall pretty nice, showcases the Nelson Sauvin grapes well, and I'm loving the kiwi hops lately so its great. The malts bring enough profile to not only prop up the hops but bring their own profile and it melds well with the hops. Light easy drinking beer that I could pound a full 2L growler in the late spring early summer probably. Cheers Nate to another well done beer!
Serving type: growler
