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.

Clear amber with a small white head. Aroma has notes of elderflower, caramel, grapes, green apples, pear. Taste is light tropical fruits, pear, white grapes, brett. Light soft mouthfeel with prickly carbonation. Light and dry finish. Very elegant. I feel classy drinking this even though I'm lying in the gutter.

nearbeer (4671) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 30, 2012
750 ml. Hazy copper with a most annoying five inch head. Aroma is sour leather, vinegar, blackberry, and earthy honey. Taste is flowery honey, sour grapes, oak and toffee. Long finish has some wheat and bubblegum. Medium body is smoothly carbonated and well balanced. Well crafted, as always from Mikkeller, very smooth and nicely sweet and sour.

Vignale (3062) - Malmö, SWEDEN - OCT 8, 2012
Flaska från Brill. En öl som är extra allt på ont och gott. Brunorange med stort skum.Doft av vitt vin, krusbär och rabarber. Rejäl kropp, syrlig brett, strävbesk humle, rejäl beska, torr, sötsyrlig. Maffig men lite spretig som ändå lyckas balansera på rätt sida utan att bli för mycket.

Beer5000 (5720) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 24, 2012
Bottle kindly shared by the “die by the beer” boys @ @ Henrik, Bergen. Hazy amber body with much carbonation and a collapsing off-white head. Aroma is vinous and slightly sour with citric fruity hops. Flavor is light malty, citric fruity, some grapefruit and distinct Nelson hops, decent bitterness. Nice body and a fine aftertaste with fruit and bitterness that ends quite dry. Nice and refreshing with a subtil complexity.

FullObs (136) - Illinois, USA - SEP 23, 2012
750ml botte - aged about a yesr. Pours murky amber color. Tastes like a darker ba saison. There’s a fair amiunt of sweetness, a nice orange marmalade with a citrus tang - a little funk but def no sour The wine barrel character is present and integrated nicely. Really liked this one a lot.

lefossoyeur (551) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 16, 2012
Copper amber with a good white head, fading. Nice fruity-oaky aromas typical of wine barrel-aged beer with hints of bretts. Chewy palate, fruity with a zesty note, a bit of leather fromthe brett, prickly carbonated, but finishing on the sweet side. Overall, not bad, aromas are great but the palate is way too sweet for my liking and making it everything but quaffable.

Abio (1831) - Waasland, BELGIUM - SEP 1, 2012
Amber coloured beer, didn’t see while shopping that it contained Brett. Which is not my thing, but giving it a try. Amber body with a ok head. The brett and sourness are in the smell, but not to overwhelming. At the taste some more.
