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.

igniztion (313) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 21, 2011
Bottel 750ml courtesy of Meilby. Pours cloudy amber with white head. Aroma is mostly typical brett, some hints of white wine and tropical fruits. Taste is light bitter, light sour, slight slight sweet. Medium to full body, thin to oily, high carbonation. Interesting, but a bit disappointing. Not much to get from barrel aging and the nelson is almost completely gone.

Bottle, huge thanks to Aaron for sharing this, pours hazy reddish with nice off white khaki, aroma has notes of lemon, grapefruit, grass, pine, bretty notes of horseblanket, lots of white grapes, some nice oak, slight vanilla as well. Taste is really nice biscuit, lemon, dusty basement, hints of pine, grapefruit, slight orange in there, hints of oak and vanilla, lots of white grape in there as well, finishing fairly dry and fruity, slightly bitter. Nice brew, the most wine forward beer have had in a while.

750ml bottle. Pours hazy dark sunset orange with a frothy two finger ivory head. Aroma of minerals and citrus. Taste is slightly tart with grapefruit and funk. Finish is dry with a hint of sweet malt with lingering bitterness. A unique, refreshingly complex beer.

Bottle at SBWF, October 6, 2011. Clear golden with a minimal white head. An interesting and complex beer with a lot of different flavors. A lot of fruit and some brett. The finish was dry. Would love to try this beer again.

750ml Bottle: Got in trade from phaleslu; THANKS Peter! Aroma of spice, oak, Brett, champagne, fruit, wine, light grape and a hint of funk. Poured amber/orange in color with a huge, foamy, creamy, dense, frothy, off-white head that diminished slowly, but lasted throughout. Hazy. Sparkling. Excellent lacing. Complex flavor is medium to heavily sweet and medium bitter. Tastes of oak, Brett, grapes, tannins, fruit, apricot, hops, and resin. Medium body. Tingly, gassy, then dry texture. Lively carbonation. Medium to heavily sweet, medium bitter, hop, Brett, grape, oak finish is dry. 9%ABV is completely hidden throughout.

Bottle from Gomer’s Lee’s Summit. Light amber with a fluffy, white head. Aroma is light but lambic-y with hints of citrus. Flavor has a nice lemon tang and maybe a hint of orange on top of the Belgian yeast(s)- base beer is most like a saison. I don’t really taste any barrel/cask but the white wine is present. Outstanding brew. The finish is dry and sweet at the same time. Very unique. Seek this one out.

The taste is also very hoppy, resemblant of a wine, lots of NS hops, citrus peel, wood, vanilla, peaches, grapefruit. (2011-09-29)
