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.

Odeur de petit pet et de gestion fraîchement coupé. Même rondeur en bouche que le citera, avec une pointe d’épice plus prononcée.

cmacklin (211) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 25, 2014
750 ml bottle. Pours a hazy amber with a huge, long lasting, good lacing, off-white head. Aroma has notes of citrus, brettanomyces, wine and a little barnyard. Flavour is sweet with grapefruit, pine and a sour, dry, bitter finish. Medium body, watery to oily texture and soft carbonation. Pretty good but slightly over-rated.

SimonTja (220) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 7, 2014
Lightly tart aroma, a lot of hop aroma, quite sticky smell, you feel the wine barrel. Taste is very well blended together, brett and tartness from winebarrel, a kind of sweetness from the Nelson hops, and a apple-grapefruit kind of fruitiness.

Torrefacto (500) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 3, 2014
Color caoba con espuma blanca abundante. Aromas dulces y afrutados de melocotón y albaricoque, algo de brett. y ligero alcohol. en boca tiene cuerpo medio-alto y una textura maltosa cálida. El sabor va de la mano de lo que encontramos en el olfato a lo que se añade un final seco que dura hasta el regusto, donde hay una presencia más evidente de la levadura. Muy rica, aunque parece más bien una IIPA.

Clownoisseur (199) - Buchanan, Michigan, USA - MAY 2, 2014
Bottle in paper. Pours a slightly hazy gold. Still, it’s bright in the glass with plenty of carbonation and a pillowy white head. Aromas of musty grapes, grapefruit, oak and light bread. Taste is very dry. Wine barrel notes abound! White grape, champagne-like notes...grapefruit, green apple...tart but earthy. Finishes extremely dry. Interesting beer for sure!!

Natai (87) - Sacramento, California, USA - APR 12, 2014
Pours cloudy with the slightest white head. Bret is clear in the aroma with hints of grapefruit. Refreshing, crisp and smooth with a touch of sour at the finish.

750, paper wrapped. What a stunning, unexpectedly nuanced and glorious beer from Mikkeller. Outrageous nectar and tropical fruit on the nose, with nectarine, pineapple, unripe strawberry, blood orange, and peach mixing with a gorgeous light funk and light vinous character. The flavor brings much of the same, with what I’m guessing may have been Brett Claussensii bringing stunning funky fruit character to match the Belgian esters and lovely bright, vibrant white wine notes. Could absolutely annihilate a whole bottle of this, and ridiculously drinkable for the ABV. An absolute winner.

Pours cloudy deep amber with low frothy white head. Aroma of white wine, grass, green grapes, gooseberry. Taste is balanced barrel sweet and light fruit tart. Very, very good! Light, smooth body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
