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.

Vestergaard (682) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - FEB 13, 2015
75cl bottle. Pours an orange amber with a big frothy white head. Aroma: Wow! this smells crazy good! Exotic peach, mandarin, grapes, galia-melon, funk, dry brett, pomelo, hops, papaya, passionfruit. Man this is a fruity fellah! Taste is fruity sweet at first, but turns dry with bitter brett, funky fruity tartness, pepper, wine grape sourness. So much taste, Lovely body as well! Well done!!

wedgie9 (2501) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 4, 2015
Tasted on 11/11/11 from a capped 750mL bottle with Ryan. Pours cloudy burnt orange with a very thick beige head that slowly recedes to rocky lace. The nose is very fruity and vinous with tons of grapefruit, funky barnyard brett, and just a touch of caramelized malt. The flavor is a bit more caramelized and bitter than the nose, with the fresh grapefruit, vinous notes, and barnyard brett funk all nicely balanced. The body is medium with an oily texture, average but very smooth carbonation, and a long bitter grapefruit and brett funk finish.

wihlan (388) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JAN 31, 2015
Färsk fruktig arom, ljus till färgen med vitt skum. Mycket söt men inte sliskig, en fruktig sötma med en försiktig beska. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A M A Z I N G !!!
Wow - I’m stunned... And I’m in love...

Golden amber , a little hazy, beer with a three finger hig head (white).

Nose: Green apples, gooseberry, pears, grass, orange, marmelade, yeast, grapes, white wine, roobarb, oak, vanilla, honey, spices, herbs.... This NEVER ends! I’s so complex!
Taste: Lime, orange, green apples, tart, tropical fruits, oak barrel... THIS is love!
Body: Full body with a crisp carbonation. A fresh, bitter and dry ending.

I’m knocked out! This is so good! I just hate myself not not buying more bottles...

Linnet (1204) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - JAN 20, 2015
Vinous, aromatic, noticable hoppiness and funky yeastiness, really reminiscent of a more earthy, funky sauvignon blanc. ABV evident, but well integrated. Amber colour, medium white head, lacing. Funky tart, yeasty and noticable hoppy, very vinous, medium bite, mid-sweet, lightly umami, noticable yeastiness, complex. Medium body, soft carbonation, acidic, warming and yeasty hoppy aromatic finish. Solid.

Klimaet (472) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - JAN 16, 2015
Bottle. Pours hazy orange with a thick white head. Aromas lots of fruit, apricots, mango, mandarin, orange, citrus, vinous notes, brett, some woody dry notes, some spices. Taste is as the node, lots of fruit, orange, citrus, unripe apricots, mango, mandarin, some spices, light hops. Reminds me of a bretty saison. In a perfect way.
