First of all don't waste your Nelson sauvin on bittering - it's as rare as rocking horse shit at the moment and more expensive than gold dust :D second, I brewed one for the bar once, a great aroma hop with fruity flavours but some interesting herbal flavours too, lots of mint - use the full 100g, lots at flame out as its quite low in cohumulone, then dry hop with the rest.

I'm planning on getting a Moteuka Saison on in the next couple of weeks. Brew By Numbers do a nice Motueka and Lime Saison. I am planning on pilsner malt, a decent whack of pale rye, MJ Belgian Ale yeast. No bittering addition, just lots of Motueka at 15 mins, flameout and dry hop (30-40 IBU from 15 min addition and 20 min steep at flameout). I may remove 5 litres once fermentation dies down and add some fresh kaffir lime leaves.

The troubles of our proud and angry dust
Are from eternity, and shall not fail.
Bear them we can, and if we can we must.
Shoulder the sky, my lad, and drink your ale.
