16oz glass from the brewery – 10.09.15

Gavel Drop is where it is at with all of its Nelson hop goodness!

Crystal clear pour to a very light straw pale colored body. Thin layer of ivory cream resides over top for a few moments. Some light dusting of lace hits the glass.
Nelson Sauvignon on full display here. Bursts with white wine, green berry/gooseberry, grapefruit, and some earthy dank elements mixed in. Both in the nose and flavor. Malt asserts a little more in the finish providing some mild sweetness and a cracker like backbone. There is moderate amount of actual bitterness to this and a very clean, crisp, bone dry finish.

Light hoppy and refreshing. Very crushable. Recommended.
