BSG - Nelson Sauvin

Description: "High enough alpha acid content to make it truly dual-purpose, but best known for its distinct gooseberry, white wine-like aroma. Nelson Sauvin’s lush tropical fruit character and low cohumulone levels have made it a favorite for IPA. Adds a lovely dimension to saison and wheat ales as well. Aroma & Flavor Characteristics: Striking and pronounced elements of cold-climate Sauvignon Blanc and freshly crushed gooseberries. Also look for Key lime, pine needles, earthy dill, and tropical fruit (lychee, papaya, passionfruit). "
