Waimea displays intense citrus aromas of orange zest and grapefruit with a rich spruce note.
Freestyle Waimea has intense citrus aromas of pink grapefruit and orange with a rich spruce note and light cannabis background. It's got huge flavour intensity and lots of tropical aroma in combination with a grapefruit forward profile. That citrus/tropical intensity really enhances a hop forward beer. Freestyle Waimea pairs well with varietals high in ester-y compounds and terpene alcohols (Rakau, SOX, Motueka), which can heighten perception of the intensity of thiol-driven top notes from Waimea.
