Nelson Sauvin hops are highly regarded for their wine & tropical fruit characters. We’ve used Centennial hops to freshen up the aroma & add some citrus to the mix.

fiulijn (19119) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 11, 2014
Draught at Mikkeller Bar, Viktoriagade, 8.5% ABV
Muddy orange-light amber color with creamy persistent head. Nice fresh fruity hops in the aroma, tropical and pungent, typical Nelson Sauvin but also a bit of feety yeast. A bit too much carbonation, with negative impact on the mouthfeel; the malt profile is lean, but the earthy/manure touch should be avoided; spicy: strong bitterness, according to expectations, with some orangey resins in the long final.
Good, but unclean, and unexciting; in 2014 one would expect some evolution.

Defreni (2997) - Husum, DENMARK - MAR 23, 2014
Fad: Drukket ved siden af Mikkellers kommer denne ud som vinderen. Igen klassisk Nelson Sauvin men med en del mere sødme og ikke så meget bitterhumle gør denne øl langt mere drikbar. Dejlig øl.

Ungstrup (34315) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 20, 2014
Draft. A hazy amber beer with a yellowish head. The aroma has notes of straw, lemons, and malts. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, petroleum, straw, and spicy hops, leading to a bitter finish.

thewolf (12078) - Kolding, DENMARK - FEB 12, 2014
Tap @ Mikkeller Bar, Viktoriagade. Pours murky orange with a small, staying, creamy white head. Aroma has sweet resiny hops, light yeast, oranges. Medium carbonation, fine dry and quite creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has fine maltiness, light grainy, a bit aggressive viniousness in the centre, very resiny, some wheat-like sweetness that feels kinda misplaced. Very bitter finish though. Hop - lovers rejoice, elegance-lovers, not so much.

LoFi (1710) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - FEB 9, 2014
Draught at Red Lion. Hazy orange, white head. Nice hoppy fruitiness, tropical fruits and citrus dominate, camel, sweet and malty. Nice.
