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.

bhensonb (11251) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 7, 2011
750 from The Davis Beer Shoppe in Davis, CA as the Brut. Purs hazy copper with a creamy foamy beige head. Aroma of light stone fruits, barnyard and floral hop. Flavor is pretty much the same. A taste is worth a thousand words. Brilliant ale.

vyvvy (4025) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - NOV 7, 2011
Pours murky bronze / tawny brown with a huge light brown head that leaves quickly. the aroma has lots of fruity/grapy Nelson Sauvignon hop characteristics, fruity Belgian yeast, sweet malt and berries - very fruity overall. Medium / full body with lots of gentle semi-sharp carbonation. The flavor starts very fruity like the aroma along with more of a hop presence (yep, fruity as well) and lots of peach and nectarine flavors. The finish adds some peppery spice. As it warms the flavor seems to get fuller, heartier and spicier. Very nice beer.

Cloudy dark amber to reddish beer, frothy yellowish head, pretty stable, little adhesive. Aroma: white grapes, some wood, passion fruits, grapefruit, some citrus. MF: soft carbon, full body. Taste: lots of grapefruit, passion fruits, pinapple, citrus fruits, touch of wood, little sweet, some lime (bitter acidity). Aftertaste: little bitter, grapefruits, passion fruits, lemon zest, bit alcoholic feeling in the throat. Amazingly fruity beer, very complex.

Scopey (7054) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 3, 2011
Keg at CP&K. It pours cloudy deep amber, with a thin yellow-white head. The nose is white grape, gooseberry, tart green apple, lime, yeast and some funk. The taste is tangy white grape, kiwi, lime, green apple, gooseberry, alcohol warmth, wood, brown bread, biscuit and toast, with a dry, citrusy finish. Medium body, moderate carbonation and smooth mouth-feel. A very pleasant brew, with a nice touch of tangy tartness. Nice.

hopscotch (9221) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 31, 2011
Bottle… Hazy amber ale with a mahogany tint and a mid-sized, frothy, off-white head. The olfactory standouts are pink grapefruit, orange peel, peach, light barnyard funk, must and oak. Medium to full-bodied with a crisp mouthfeel and zippy carbonation. The flavor presents fruity apricot and red grapefruit, bone-dry red wine and mild acidity with suggestions of toasted oak and vanilla. Finishes fruity, slightly bitter and Sahara-dry. Thanks to Dstructo for sharing the bottle!

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.
