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.

Draft @ mikkeller bar. (So I guess this would qualify to be de-retired. Aroma is bretty wine cassis fruit madness. Flavour is deep fruit (cassis, red fruits) with a slight touch of bretty sourness. The sauvignon shines in being subtle, but really complementary to the fruityness. Really easy going down (sure this is 9%?) And full of fruity flavour. Awesome

UPDATED: SEP 19, 2013 Bottle from Mane Liquor. Had this one fresh and it was amazing. Had another bottled aged for a year, completely different although still very good. Pours dark copper with a couple of white bubbles for a head. I’m going to rate both for those that are interested. Fresh bottle shows lots of tropical fruits on the nose with a noteable presence of oak and dry sauvignon notes. Loads of tropical fruits in the flavour with a long lingering bitterness and a slight sourness coming through. Wood is definitely present. The aged beer pours pretty much the same. Lots of oak notes with vanilla. Sour yeast shows through very prominently. Slight citrus in there too. Lots of sour yeast in the taste with citrus and oak notes. Rather good but prefered the fresher bottle. Would love to try this one aged for another year or two. Enjoyed this beer experiance and won’t forget it

From tap, numerous times, @Mikkeller Bar. Pours a near-clear dark amber, with a lace of tiny beige bubbles on top. A pleasant hoppy smell of tropical fruits hit the nose at first. Then some fresh floral and perfumey yeast notes. Also a subtle, but noticable vinous and oaky aroma from the white wine barrels. Taste is awesome. Complex and fully balanced. Superdry, restrained malt body. A light sourish fruitiness, reminiscent of mix bag tropical, black currants and oranges. A fresh vinous note, with a hint of vanilla and wood. Fruity bitterness for balancing. Nice soft and sparkling, champagne-like carbonation. Medium body strenght. Crisp, dry and perfectly rounded ending. Very moreish, and dangerously easy to drink. This beer is a gem.

My first thought was Brett and white wine bomb, but it grew as I drank more, I ended up liking it a lot.

Clear amber with an off-white head. Aroma is quite sweet, malty, caramel and rather hoppy - pine and fruity. Flavor is quite sweet, rather bitter and light acidic. Dry and bitter finish. 270511

750ml bottle, wrapped in beautiful black paper with a unique black cork. Best by date is 09/15/2019. I’m guessing this is about 1.5 years old. The pour yields a lightly hazy, medium honey-amber body. A thick, spongy head of beige froth is steadfast, refusing to relinquish its stronghold, and leaving hard, clumpy rings of lace all over the glass. Pretty brew, for sure. The nose is quite enticing, showing smooth, malty notes of biscuit, cracker dough, attenuated caramel, and Quincy’s yeast rolls (if you grew up in the south in the late 80’s and early 90’s, you know what this is). To that add mildly buggy brett, peppery oak, and dry, vinous white grapes. Champagne yeast is apparent and welcomed for its dryness. Flavors follow suit, expertly balanced between doughy, softly caramelized bread malts and dry, zingy, seasoned oak slathered in dry white wine. Notes of bitter grasses and perhaps some dried pineapple bring gorgeous hop notes into the fold. The palate is substantive, lightly sweet at points, and nearly bone dry at others. Persistent, fizzy carbonation is present throughout, clearing any residual sugars out expeditiously. It drinks way too easy for a 9% beer. Very good stuff. This will undoubtedly continue to evolve over time, losing hop character but gaining dryness. I quite like it exactly where it is.

Had my first glass at CPNbeerfestival. Wonderful amber color, thin head. Impressive notes of brett, citrusfruity flavors,hints of vanilla. This continues in the taste aswell. The balance of flavors is excellent. This is the anwer to winedrinkers. This is a well made beer in the true geuze style, but this one combines acidity, sweet aroma’s almost perfectly. All the time there is a interaction of fruits, acid, malt. Best beer i had for a long time. Will never forget this experience.

7/10 i mörkhet. Luktar väldigt humligt och friskt. Väldigt humlig, lite torr men rund och fin i smaken. Besk eftersmak.
