Fresh sauvignon blanc juice fermented with pilsner wort brewed an extravagant late addition of Nelson Sauvin hops. Vin Nouveau meet Sauvin Nouveau in a vintage harvest pilsner of crisp and intense aromatic fruit complexity, where the flavours of beer and wine intertwine so closely it’s almost indecent. Surely it can’t be wrong if it feels this right? This beer was made possible by the generous assistance of the award winning Palliser Estate Wines of Martinborough.

Vignale (2713) - Malmö, SWEDEN - NOV 20, 2015
Flaska från SB. En torr krispig stor lager med fina fruktiga nyanser. Riktigt snygg Nelson Sauvin-touch. Krus, kiwi, druvor, ananas, passionsfrukt, lime. Snygg krispig munkänsla, bra beska med gräsighet och citrusskal. Riktigt gott.

oh6gdx (23671) - Vasa, FINLAND - NOV 18, 2015
Bottled@AIH53. Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is dry wood, nelson sauvin, quite white wine like notes as well as mild spices. Flavour is quite dry, some white wine meeting tropical fruits and a rather huge bitterness, but all in a nice balance. Surprisingly nice and bitter NSWWish brew (Nelson Sauvin White Wine)...

TBone (14784) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 18, 2015
Bottled 650ml (AIH53, from SB)
Orange color, small white head. Light spicey hops and tropical fruityness in the nose, perhaps a bit white wineous. Medium-bodied. Apple, earthy hops and very white wineous fruity flavor. Finish has some lemony bitterness and orange peels. Yes, really wine meets beer.

@ Basunen: Rätt fruktig med tydlig humle. Inget som handlar om pilsner, mer pa/ipa - gott

SvanteL (49) - SWEDEN - OCT 14, 2015
Ganska ljust gul med fast, vit skumkrona. Fräsch fruktig doft med vindruvor, krusbär, tropiska frukter och lite gräs. Smaken är mycket fruktig, lite vindruva, mycket tropisk frukt, lite grästoner och grapebeska. En mycket intressant öl, egentligen en lager men oerhört smakrik.

Foffern (1494) - Bodø, NORWAY - OCT 11, 2015
Bottle at home. Pours a clear pale orange color with a small off-white head. The grapes are present in the aroma along with pale malt, wet hay, nutmeg, grass, peaches and NS-hop (popcorn and diesel). The flavor has more hops and grass, grapefruit and hay. Has a slick and soft mouth feel, full-bodied and medium bitterness. A tasteful and nice beer with lots of the NS-hop. Well-balanced but miss the grapes in the taste.

Lilja (2275) - Malmö, SWEDEN - OCT 10, 2015
Flaska från SB. Smak och doft av grapefrukt, citron, krusbär, gröna druvor, vitt vin, gräs med toner av passionfrukt och mango. Frisk, fruktigt, lätt syrlighet, bra balans, beska med smak av grapefrukt och vitt vin. Mycket gott!

650ml bottle. Clear golden with two finger fluffy white head. Aroma of white wine, tropical fruits, grapes, mango, sweet melon and grains, the pilsner base is also clearly noticeable with a sweet and mellow breadiness. Taste is initially fruity white wine and grapes going over to more tropical fruit tones, mango and melon with the wine still present and ending in a sweet breadiness with a light hop bitterness and light wine notes. The mouthfeel is light, the carbonation low and the aftertaste lasting with a nice mix of hop bitterness, grapes and light grape acidity.

pilsnerrogge (2677) - Finspång, SWEDEN - OCT 9, 2015
Pours golden with a slight haze. Low head. Lots of citrus on the nose; lime, oranges and grape fruit. Very bitter taste. Lots of grape fruit. Really long bitterness.
Would be wonderful on a hot summer day.
