COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

750ml bottle leafft over since new years. Hazy dark golden with airy white head. Aroma of tropical fruits, mango, papaya and some vinous white wine notes. Similar taste though much more vinous with clear sauvignon blanc characteristics. Medium mouthfeel and minimal carbonation (though I remember it as more carbonated when fresher).

Tasted this beer both on tap and bottle and have to say that there are a great difference. You need to try it on tap

brnandersen (2447) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 6, 2015
Draught at Mikkeller & Friends. Hazy, golden-amber colour with a thin, white head. Fruity aroma with citrus, yeasts, bretts, grape fruits, oak, vanilla and caramel malts. Taste is light sweet. Medium to full with a creamy texture and a lively carbonation. Finishes lasting dry and fruity with bretts and citrus fruits. Lovely classic from Mikkeller.

Mjp12 (750) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2015
Wow, super complex aroma, a bit of Belgian yeast, a light Brett touch, and the wine barrels are all clear. Very drinkable, the time in the wine casks gives a great dry finish, very difficult to detect the 9% abv. Fantastic .

Nische (1152) - Saltsjö-Boo, SWEDEN - MAY 13, 2015
Pours hazy orange with a thick white head. Aromas lots of fruit, apricots, mango, citrus, gooseberries, vinous notes, brett and some woody dry notes. Taste is as the nose, lots of fruit, citrus, mango, light hops, dry wood and gooseberries. The brettanomyces are very present. Lovely.

CanIHave4Beers (3556) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - MAY 5, 2015
Pours a deep golden color with a big head and good lace.
The aroma is fruity with plenty of lemon and melon, it’s lightly funky & very inviting.

The flavor tickles my fancy just so, a tart citrus akin to meyer lemons & muskmelon along with a mild bitterness, a very pleasant dry character and a light bit of sour fruit. The alcohol is masterfully concealed and th shop character is dominant but perfectly inter-woven.

Wonderful really,

750ml c&c bottle from SHIG, I think. Poured an orange/amber body under a large fizzy off-white head. Aroma/flavor, funky, rotting fruit, earth, lemongrass, vinous. Flavor also has some cherry, chardonnay and wet wood. Full body from stronger carbonation that is fizzy and a medium mouthfeel with a nice lingering aftertaste.
