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.

Big lambic nose like a barnyard. some wine notes in the nose Pours amber and cloudy. big 1.5" head. Notes of wine, lemon,and sour aplle flavours with a carmelly malt and a big hop finish. Sour lambic flavours disguise the alcohol until it hits the back of your throat. Not a huge lambic fan but this is a pretty good one.

750ml corked bottle pours a cloudy amber color with 2 fingers of off-white head that leaves some spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is light caramel malts and some yeast with some fruit. Taste is light fruity and malty sweetness with some light bitter hops and some sourness in the finish. Medium body and adequate carbonation leave a nice tingle. Not quite what I was expecting.

Torontoblue (85) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 25, 2012
Pours a murky dark amber. Aroma is huge; pineapple, guava, kiwi, lemon, lime, all your typical Southern Hemisphere Sauvignon grape aromas, mixed with a great brett funkyness. This all flows through to the taste, with a great carbonation, sweetness, tart cooking apple & acidity. Finish is dry, acidic and fruity. An amazing beer!

Nice beer. Aroma is white grapes, caramel, light onions, grass, and lemon. Taste is citrus fruits and white grapes with a very fizzy body. Finishes very dry and crisp.

dantheman278 (1361) - SCOTLAND - FEB 11, 2012
Bottle at home. Reddish amber, thick creamy white head. Nose is slightly grape lambic, earthy vinous funkiness, hint of gooseberry hop, complex and smooth. Very slightly sweet caramel, juicy hop, hint of sour acidity, tannin even, peach, gooseberry, citrus, amazing funky hop finish. Incredible. This beer is outrageously good.

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.
