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. 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.

Bottle via StateLine. Poured into a wine glass, muddy orange in color, with nice frosty head. Strong lacing left on the glass. Looks like there are a lot of floaties in the beer but I think its just the haziness of the beer... Great nose of sharp tartness/sour grapes, wine, lemons. Taste is lots of lemon, sour grapes, wine, flowers, yeast notes... Leaves the mouth very dry. Hard to believe this is a 9 percenter... so light and easy to drink. Body is light and refreshing, good amount of carbonation. Overall. Everything about this beer is great except its price tag.... Thanks to robert for intially sharing this beer! FU Shelton brothers!

750ml shared with mattyb83. Pours a hazy caramel color with some amberish highlights and a big pillow head. Aroma of some sour funk, citrusy white wine grapes, wet wood, brett, lemons, and funky cheese rind. Drinks like a creamy, infected, corked wine. In a good way though. White grapes blast through with green apple, lemon and grapefruit notes. Followed by some light acidity that works with a ton of wet oak. The brett presence is there but really works to complement the huge white grape and apple skin presence. The oak is very well integrated as well. A very interesting beer that is just incredibly citrusy for a wild that really takes the forefront over the yeast. I dig.

750mL bottle. Opens with a small pop. Slightly hazy, caramel in color with some hints of red/pink in there as well. There is a nice, medium sized, fluffy white head, too, that leaves some nice lacing on the glass as it recedes. Slightly tart aroma with notes of green grapes, some orange citrus. Taste is citrusy with some orange and grapefruit, and nicely tart throughout. Towards the finish this has elements of a sauv blanc going on, and then just dries the fuck out when it finishes. This citrus forward wild is like nothing I have had before, and is really well done and good. The price point is high, but this is something that I would definitely recommend to anyone who likes wilds or ipas as well.

Bottle pours amber with cream colored head. Aromas are grapes, yeasts, and sweetness. Taste is very white wine like with apples, grapes, and a toasted caramel note. Finish is long and very dry. Overall, a delicious beer.

Bottle. Pours a creamy brown with off white head. Aroma is sweet with some sour yeast, grape, dough, and sweet malts notes. Palate is a bit sour and very dry, finishing dry. The taste is a bit sweet and sour. Very different, but very impressive.

We had this to toast in 2012, we got that goin’ for us. Smells awesome - apples and pears, white wine cedar and oak. Flavor is pretty much what the aroma predicts - apples and pears, some tart, lightly sour notes, prickly carbonation, woody, winey finish. Really tasty. Not sure if it was $24.99 tasty, but I really liked it...
