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.

Fantastic, funky, fruity, lightly sweet, woody.

2011-07-26, draught at Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen, 9-4-8-4-17=42
Cloudy amber color; small head. The aroma is fantastic, a concert of stone fruits and white grapes, Muscadel as well, with a light, sweet, earthy touch. Good body strength; malt flavor with character, therefore the residual sweetness is a good complement here; there is a high degree of fruitiness, with pleasant, moderate fruit acidity; correct bitterness; overall, a complex blend. The final is balanced, earthy, with a light tart touch.
Very good.
