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.

Big bottle. Aroma of dark malts, complex woody flavors. The major taste experience here is the dryness and bitterness reminding of grape peels.

Bottled. A hazy amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma has notes of wood, bettanomyces, malt, caramel, grapes, and barnyard. The flavor is sweet with funky notes of brettanomyces, malt, wood, grapes, caramel, alcohol, and barnyard, leading to a dry finish.

haukur (1700) - 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!

UPDATED: MAR 7, 2015 750 bottle in a snifter. Pours golden with a lacy head. Aroma of the wine, some floral and lightly citrus hops, and caramel malts. Flavor the same. Average texture. A good beer for the style. Bottle purchased at HF in 2015. Tastes better than I remember.
