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 home. Barnyardy funky aromas, with sour lambic characteristics and really distinct citrus and lemon notes. If there’s a wine it tastes like it would probably something like a gewurztraminer - lychees, bits of turkish delight - along with that funkiness which makes the beer. Unique and great.

Bottle from West Lakeview Liquors. Served in a SAVOR wine glass. Pours a clear light orange color with a good white head. Moderate amount of white lacing. Nose carries light white wine plus some funk. A bit earthy with mild funk. Light acidity comes through in the flavor. Light body with effervescent carbonation. Really quite good. Probably my favorite Mikkeller beer to date.

For my money the best beer Mikkel has ever created. Loaded with nice grapefruit taste but even more fresh juicy peach. Like those really bright orange peaches. Lightly tart, some tannic quality. Easy to drink for a big beer.

Slightly hazy orange-amber colored pour. Off-white, ample head. Slowly falls and leaves a good amount of sticky lacing. Huge grapefruit aroma. Slight caramel malt nose. Very tart, sweet and bitter. Big hop flavor of grapefruit. Slightly dry. Very tart aftertaste. Like sucking on a grapefruit. Pretty good.

Bottle. Darker rust hazy orange with a fluffy eggshell head that provides nice sticky lacing. Funky and earthy hops with grapefruit rind and woodiness in the aroma. Zesty citrus win light vanilla notes and a slight earthy funkiness. Lighter fluffy body with vibrant carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: JAN 16, 2012 Just like description - dry, vinous, and delicious. This beer does an excellent job capturing the best wine flavors and combining them with the best beer flavors. The result is well balanced, with superb carbonation and texture.

Massive Mikkeller Pt.2. Another bottle I was pretty excited to try. Great spicy aroma with slight hints of tea and herb. Flavor was a tad "dry" but still had that winy type flavor. Very different and interesting.
