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.

Bottle at Mogwai. Helsingborg, December 2011.
Sourish and tart aroma of white wine, grapes, apples, citurs fruits and melon. Very refreshing with some hoppy notes. I love the funky brett character in this beer. The crisp body and the rich taste is fantastic.

I drank this beast by myself while playing PS3. Quickly too - it affected my gaming abilities - always a positive. Sedimented very deep opaque golden. Smallish fading white head. Highly aromatic ale with a basket of tropical fruits and delicious juicy white grape touches that are attractive and contributing much complexity. Surprisingly tannic, tea-like hops do provide an interesting counterpoint where the grape would naturally call for acidity. I was going to stop describing it here but the nose is like no other I have smelled; very white vinous, typical gooseberry, dry flowers, light resinous pine, bretty funk, some, kiwi, and faint toasted vanilla. The flavor is similar with some buttery oak, faint toasted vanilla notes, similar fruity notes as the nose, dry floral and leaves, light pine, tart brett, and just a bit of funk; the bitterness is more than moderate as well as the acidity. The palate is moderate, less than lively, creamy, and bone dry. The finish is longer than expected, bone dry, slightly bitter, tart acidity, leafy notes, and a bit resinous. This was really unique and really pretty good. In retrospect I should have shared it. Oh well.

Bottle shared at RBWG 2012. Pours a cloudy orange copper with small frothy off white head. The aroma is floral hops and honey. Medium mouthfeel with a yeast and dry finish. A decent Belgiam strong ale from Mikkeller.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 2, 2012
In bottle. Pours a golden brown colour with a thick beige head. A big Brett aroma with white wine, oak, passion fruit and leather. Similar flavours. Mildly bitter with lingering oak and passion fruit again. Quite vinous with heavy carbonation with a foamy mouth-feel. Lovely.

canuck_j (79) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 27, 2012
Big lambic nose like a barnyard. some wine notes in the nose Pours amber and cloudy. big 1.5" head. Notes of wine, lemon,and sour aplle flavours with a carmelly malt and a big hop finish. Sour lambic flavours disguise the alcohol until it hits the back of your throat. Not a huge lambic fan but this is a pretty good one.

reebtogi (4568) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 26, 2012
750ml corked bottle pours a cloudy amber color with 2 fingers of off-white head that leaves some spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is light caramel malts and some yeast with some fruit. Taste is light fruity and malty sweetness with some light bitter hops and some sourness in the finish. Medium body and adequate carbonation leave a nice tingle. Not quite what I was expecting.

Torontoblue (85) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 25, 2012
Pours a murky dark amber. Aroma is huge; pineapple, guava, kiwi, lemon, lime, all your typical Southern Hemisphere Sauvignon grape aromas, mixed with a great brett funkyness. This all flows through to the taste, with a great carbonation, sweetness, tart cooking apple & acidity. Finish is dry, acidic and fruity. An amazing beer!

Nice beer. Aroma is white grapes, caramel, light onions, grass, and lemon. Taste is citrus fruits and white grapes with a very fizzy body. Finishes very dry and crisp.
