A Note on This Beer
Saisons are one of craft beer’s most sophisticated styles. Exhibiting many similarities to wine, their intricate fruitiness and dry earthy tones deliver upper echelon taste.
New Zealand’s pride and joy, 8 Wired Brewing Co. uses a special native ingredient to take this elegance to soaring heights with Saison Sauvin.
Featuring hard to come by, white-wine forward New Zealand Nelson Sauvin Hops, this Farmhouse frontloads with vinous grapes, pineapple and papaya - turning this Belgian style into a vibrant tropical dance even the most seasoned of Saison fans will salivate over.
Clean fruit flavors of the hops propel alongside French Saison yeast to create a kaleidoscope of gooseberry, white grapes, freshly cut lemon and banana on top of a bed of tropic splendor. Dry with a controlled bitter, Sauvin lands on the palate with complete lucidity.
Named for a variety of Sauvignon Blanc grapes, Nelson Sauvin is one of the most in-demand hops in the world. Incredibly complex with striking flavor versatility, these hops are right at home in a Saison and the Kiwis of 8 Wired harness their capabilities better than anybody.
