Danish: Brygget af basismalt og under mæskníngen og gæringen tilsat enzymer for at opnå en så høj forgærbarhed som overhovedet muligt. Til både bitter-, smags- og aromahumle er brugt den New Zealandske humlesort ‘Nelson Sauvin’ som er opkaldt efter sine druekarakterer, der bringer minder til den New Zealandske hvidvinsdrue Sauvignon Blanc. Af gær er benyttet både champagnegær og brettanomyces og pga. enzymerne er øllen gæret meget langt ned og dermed er slutresultatet en meget tør øl. Efter endt gæring har øllen ligget 5 måneder på hvidvinsfade fra Østrigske Weingut Kollwentz og opnået yderligere karakter. Til slut er den flasket på 750 ml champagneflasker med et ekstra højt CO2 indhold.

English: Nelson Sauvignon is a New Year beer it is fermented with ale yeast, brettanomyces and enzymes. Then it has been aged three months in Austrian white wine casks. Very dry, very vinous and very delicious.

TychoJames (167) - Örebro, SWEDEN - DEC 10, 2014
Flaska 75 cl systembolaget. Orangebrun kulör med stort fluffigt skum. Fuktig doft av apelsin, citron, druvor, halm och funk. Komplex smak med funkkänsla. Stall, hö och jordkällare. Citrus, vitt vin och fat. Härlig syrlighet och fint krispigt torr. Mycket kolsyra och alkoholstyrkan döljs väl.

Bottle; at home; courtesy of madmitch76 (the legend). 750ml bottle. Vigorous pour into my IPA glass-of-choice. A nice head. Lovely head. Ruby-ish dark appearance. Very murky. Opaque. Aroma is; oak; woodchips; brett; musty wood; grapes; Nelson and a lot of bready yeast. I think it is slightly oxidised but that is not a problem as it is heavy with brett. Very damp wet grass aroma as well. Taste is orange tart; citric juice. Scilian lemons. grapefruit; white grapes; Finnish rye bread; farmhouse funk and sour and tart overtones. The brett works wonders with Nelson and really dances off my tongue. It’s well-carbonated and definitely a sipper. Alcohol is also prominent but not ott. There is a good amount of balance for such a complicated beer. The drinkability is what surprises me the most about this beer. It is definitely a nod to Orval levels of thirst-quenching despite its relatively high abv. I would like to see different barrels on this one as it is an incredibly good beer. Superb work Mikkel!

tectactoe (2293) - Michigan, USA - NOV 9, 2014
Bottle: Dark brown, ruddy copper body with a thin, bubbly, khaki colored film on top. Aroma is very wine-like & vinous. White & red grape with notes of darker fruits, plums, prunes & a light tartness with a hint of booze behind everything. Flavor is a bit nutty & almost toasty, although still very vinous & wine forward. Slightly warming booze, earthy hop notes, red licorice, mild woody elements towards the finish with a little bit of semi-spicy Belgian yeast making for a mostly clean finish. Bubbly mouth feel, aftertaste of dark fruit & faint red wine. Good, but I didn’t love it like I thought I would.

"what a great beer! hoppy, fruity, oak, white wine grapes, and a little funk all come through in about equal measure. Each sip was a delight. Lively body and a nice dry finish."

Moderate carbonation and body, tangy, hint of citrus on the palate, slightly sweet but more tangy, bit dry, quite enjoyable.
