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.

garza (570) - Oslo (NO), Caracas (VE), VENEZUELA - SEP 25, 2011
Pours amber colour with a fainted head. Sweet fruity aroma. Medium sweetness with an acid touch. Hints of fermented fruit like pineapple in the flavour. Medium body, oily feel, soft carbonation and the sweet-citric with mid bitter after taste. Ok.

Nose of weed, yeast, peaches... Wow. Nice carbonation profile. Sweet candy on the back of my palate. This is delicious. Pretty balanced. Nose and flavor so different! Champaign carbonation not overwhelming. You can tell it was aged in a wine barrel.

brokensail (11528) - Orange County, California, USA - SEP 12, 2011
A: The beer pours a lightly hazed golden-amber color with a soapy white head. S: What is this? A Mikkeller beer that smells good? White wine and unripe melon give this beer a very fruity nose. There’s a slight catty note, which I find in a lot of Sauvignon Blancs. A bit of grass as well as hints of lemon and oak. T: This is actually lightly hoppy with some citrusy notes. A lot of green melon, peaches, lemon, and grapes. There is a nice sweet flavor, hints of grass, and some tannic oak. M: Medium bodied with a medium to high carbonation. O: I was very impressed by this one. The wine flavors really came through and added a pleasant flavor to the beer.

Strykzone (5062) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - SEP 12, 2011
Sampled at an ESBLS tasting. Hazy golden copper with half the glass of off white head. A funky and fruity nose. The taste is also bret and funky and fruity. This is pretty good.

finol (2248) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 11, 2011
Draught at Bishops Linnégatan. Pours brown orange with a small off white head. Nice orval like tartness, sweeter with lots of oranges, grapes and grape seed. Semi heavy and drinkable.

hirigalzkar (2353) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 11, 2011
On tap @ Bishops Arms Linnégatan. The genius of this beer came as a complete surprise to me. One sip, and I started asking myself wheter this was a modern version of Orval, or maybe a new beer from the Dolle. It’s funky, tart, sweet, fruity and hoppy at the same time (and in a way that only the breweries mentioned above has managed to brew before). It’s super complex, and very very drinkable. Notes of black currant (a lot!), brett, wood, vinous bitterness, orange, citrus and christmas spices. Smooth.

2013-06-19, bottle at Pibar, Lausanne, synthetic cork, 8-4-9-4-18=43
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.

Draught (O’Connor’s, Uppsala) - Hazy amber with a white head. Marzipan, dried fruit and grape in the aroma. Grape, dried fruit, caramel and pear in the taste. Interesting and easy to drink.

Bottle shared at The BeerMongers... Poured amber orange with a white-ish head. Some grassy, vegetable and citrus tones from the hops with hints of oak and vinous wine-like yeast characters. Mildly tart with dominant yeast tones towards the end.
