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.

Lukaduke (3038) - Gray, Maine, USA - FEB 10, 2013
Pours a hazy golden orange color with three fingers of sticky eggshell foam. The nose is very vinous with lots of barrel character, brett, grass, pine. On the palate its a lot of the same with nice complexity. Ripe grapefruit, touch of acidity, fresh grass, honeyed malts and a bit of horse blanket funk to round out the palate. Nice beer.

haukur (1800) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - JAN 27, 2013
One of the more finer beers that I have ever sampled. Good vinegary aroma, some barn, dust and big apple profile. Coppar with a small head, almost like Orval looking. Taste is all brett, vinegar, oak, hops. Fantastic palate. Long finish. Awesome brew!
