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.

Sample at Jungle Jim’s Barrel Aged Tasting, from a bottle. Clear golden orange color. Little white head. Decent lace. Nice citrusy brett nose. Good soft carbonation. Medium body. More dry texture, light belgian funk. Citrus hops. Good zesty, sweet taste. Hint of baked apple. Very tasty.

UPDATED: JAN 21, 2013 Bottle @ Il pretesto. It pours golden orange with a tiny white head on top. Very fruity with orange hints... and then there it is the sour! But never covering the global complexity. A great beer!!

tom10101 (5273) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 15, 2012
Bottle (750 ml). Hazy orange with a huge creamy/foamy mostly lasting off-white head and intense lacing. Aroma is winey with brettanomyces, wood, grape, fruits, belgian yeast and hops. Taste is also winey with fruits, brett, grapes, wood, malt and slight sourness. Slight bitterness. Mouthfeel is smooth and winey. Alcohol is completely hidden. This beer is fresh, complex, drinkable and truly enjoyable! Awesome beer!

toffeeslot (119) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 14, 2012
Ridiculous beer. As in ridiculously good. Pours like a champagne, but is a burnt orange colour. Rapidly dimishing head. Bready, sour, sweet aroma. Taste is nelson, then sour, then sweet grape. Is this a beer? Finish is bitter sweet. I’ve had nothing like this before. Could almost be a dessert wine. I’m not a fan of Austrian or German wines, but this is just spot on. Would live them to do the same beer, but with dry New Zealand barrels. Totally out there.

@ S.Brevinga Alus Salons. Very interesting beer. First, pleasant aroma of Nelson Sauvin, but you can’t feel a lot of hops in taste as well as 9ABV of alcohol, nice sourness and wine notes.

Huhzubendah (3480) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 6, 2012
Bottle shared by Thorpe429. Thanks Mike. The beer is a honey orange color and has a thick, fizzy white head. Lasting retention and the tulip glass is coated with lacing. The aroma brings floral and vegetable notes, reminiscent of Cantillon Mamouche. Green peppers, plants, very vegetal. Medium bodied with plenty of carbonation. Hops emerge in the finish. Complex and intriguing, this is enjoyable in small quantities. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 01-01-2012
