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.

Foxbush (1748) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - APR 22, 2016
Draft at Mikkeller and Friends in Reykjavik The ale poured a cloudy amber with an off white head and lacing. The aroma was complex with caramel malts, and grapes. The higher ABV provided a warming feeling that added to the experience. The ale has a medium body with soft carbonation. The finish was dry with no bitterness. Nice ale!!

tfredvik (1700) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 17, 2016
Clear, copper body with a small, off-white, fully lasting head. Complex and strong aroma of fruits, including slightly overripe peaches and mango, oak and hints of sourness. Strong flavour of grapefruit, peach and mango, with oak, caramel and funk in the back. Light sweet taste, light sourness and a quite biting bitterness. Medium body, very dry on the palate, lively carbonated. An unusual and complex brew! A fun mix of wild ale and IPA!

wolfcarnival (231) - Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC - APR 6, 2016
Pours amber with small lasting head. aroma of tangy yeast, orange, white grapes, honey, caramel. tastes of candied fruits, caramel, barrel ageing comes right through, then a big hit of hops which i found too much. delicate white wine sourness and sweet fruits got fucked with the bitter hoppiness. disappointing..

harrisoni (16931) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 2, 2016
On tap at The Bottle Shop Bermondsey. Cloudy amber colour lasting thin head. Nelson aroma of tropical fruit. Pretty intense. So what is this I mean its a bit like an abbey tripel in sweetness strength hoppy dry fruity. Candied tropical fruits. Big and intense for sure. Bitter dry tropical fruit finish. Pretty intense.

flying_pig (1393) - SCOTLAND - MAR 31, 2016
20cl on-tap at Mikkeller & Friends, Nørrebro, Copenhagen (55 Danish Krone):
This one was a very nice beer from start to finish, I really enjoyed sipping away at it despite the fact it definitely did not seem like a 9% beer when I tried it; I guess a good balance will do that to beers. There was some light bitterness & a few floral hops alongside touches of grapefruit & plenty of grapes that made it a very easy beer to drink & one that seemed quite lively & fresh; definitely one that I’d recommend you try if you get the chance.

Great floral aroma. The Nelson hops with the Brett is a perfect combination. Excellent balance of hop and bitter.

Garrold (4018) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 28, 2016
Tap. Rutland Arms, Sheffield. Hazy, pale Amber. Film of sticky, lasting, white head. Nose has fruity, orange hop. Some dried fruit. Bready, yeasty chew. Some lime tang. Nice level of brett. Has a vanilla sweetness. Taste is soft sweet. Some citric tang. Minimal bitterness. Lovely fruit. Clean palate at the ABV. Scarily easy drinking, in fact. Fruity, bretty, light bitter finish. Lovely beer.
