Gooseberry, Lime, Sauvignon Blanc, Troical Fruit
Aroma, Flavor and 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).
Brewing Application: 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.
Alpha Acid Range: 12.0 - 13.0%
Beta Acid Range: 6.0 - 8.0%
Cohumulone as % of alpha: 23 - 25
Total oils mL/100 gr.: 0.9 - 1.2
