In a blind tasting by BJCP trained experts, this beer rated


Funkwerks Nelson Sauvin

Aroma: “Some nice subtle complexity in the aroma. Notes of white grape, pepper, guava, and passion fruit provide some sweetness. There’s some bready malt notes, slight spice, and a little lemon, too.”

Flavor: “Carbonation is high, which enhances the flavor in this beer. Grape character is of white wine and a bit dry, which fits well with the overall saison structure. A mild earthiness with slight spice is not overpowering, and a bit of lemon sweetness is complemented by a cider character.”

Overall: “Like a South African sauvignon blanc married a saison, complete with guavas and passion fruit. Very drinkable, refreshing, and balanced.”
