Very Good

Notes: We brewed this delightfully hoppy pils with generous amounts of precious Nelson Sauvin & Mosaic hops over a delicate & restrained malt backbone. The result is a seriously magical adult beverage that’s both silly-crushable and bursting with beautiful aromas of blueberry, mango, white grape, and lychee underscored by just a hint of malt sweetness. It’s a sunlit, bucolic meadow in liquid form, and your taste-buds are free to frolic.

Canned 14 Jan, purchased at ABV.

Poured carefully, this is a clear light orange with a dense white head with excellent retention and lacing. The nose is unconventional for the style, with notes of kiwi, lychee , a little blueberry and a touch of nightshade. A blend of grain and a light oatmeal note. The palate opens mildly bitter with a nice blend of kiwi, lychee,a little strawberry. There's an interesting sweetness present, though unconventional. Light in body, a little creamy, a little sweet. Intriguing.

Canned roughly a month ago.
Looks like a light Pilsner.
Smells of some vinous grape and berry flavors. Tropical fruits and just a tiny bit of cat pee or dankness?
Taste is same. Not intolerable but somehow the mosaic, Nelson, malt combo makes an odd taste.
It’s a great concept and with a slightly different hop profile might indeed be super good.

This is one dank IPL, and I say IPL as the hops are clearly the star of this show and overwhelm the malt. Far closer to an IPL than a pilsner for my palate and preferences, and that doesn't even consider the hazy appearance.

Wow. This is a wild one - and a bit weird, too. Kind of like the leader of the party bus me and my friend’s took in San Francisco 2005 for a pals birthday, yeah, the one who moonlit as a freaky porn star, it’s damn wild and full of spunk. It’s pretty darn hazy like your ceramics teacher after a puff of kush, while it has a very nice Pils/malt/slight fruity aroma. Taste is like a donkey kick to your groin (in a good way, if that’s possible). Again, it’s just so different and wild! The malty Pils flavor is there along with a crispy citrus back bone. Yeah, like a gorilla on vacay, I’m into it!
