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.

Great IPA. Aroma is among the most persuasive I have had. Just couldn't keep my nose out of it. Full of pears, apples and late-summer fruits. Mouthfeel is crisp and with a short and delicate bitterness. Pours a light hazy orange in tap...on this account with no head worth mentioning.

Dogbrick (7973) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 2, 2014
Saved this one appropriately enough for New Year’s Day. The beer is a slightly hazy dark amber color with a medium thick foamy off-white head that diminishes slowly. Patches of lacing on the glass. Vinous aroma with notes of oak, malt and yeast. Medium to full body with flavors of vine fruits and berries, oak and funky yeast. The finish is as advertised, with a dry Champagne-like aftertaste and a touch of hops. Enjoyable beer all around and a good way to start 2014.

Yorker (1167) - Herning, DENMARK - DEC 31, 2013
75 cl bottle @ home. Pours hazy amber with a white head that leaves a lot of lacing. Aroma and flavour are white wine, a little brett, grapefruit, citrus, and some wood - with a slightly dry finish.

callmemickey (2696) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 29, 2013
Hazy orange body, large white head, soapy lacing. Tropical fruits, citrus, white wine grapes, oak, must, and wet hay. Vibrant, medium bodied, lively carbonation, assertive acidity and tartness. Quite enjoyable.

ACD (628) - Dublin, IRELAND - DEC 25, 2013
75cl bottle, around a year old. Hazy orange, nice lasting clean white head. Amazing nose: lots of mellow tropical fruity funk, red berries, lightly tart lemon, orange fruit chews, and sweet nectarines. Taste is equally astonishing: drinks like a funky dry white wine. Loads of great peach, orange, lightly tart lemon, white melon, slightly dusty yeastiness. So dry. Great balance. Lingering mango and sweet melon alongside a slight musty citric bite. Wonderful brew. Had this with smoked salmon - incredible.

spacecube (806) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 24, 2013
750 bottle, shared round the table, pours light golden with a bubbly champagne like effervescence which mellows into small but lasting head. Aroma is juicy fruit hop, brett, light caramel and wheat malt with a very white wine and grape dimension . Nicely balanced flavours and dry short finish. This went to everyone’s heads just after a small glass. A memorable beer.

Måske muligvis den bedste øl der findes. Westvleteren er sjælden god - Mikkellers Nelson-Sauvignon er ikke så sjælden og bedre! Bum!

Bottle paper wrapped and corked and caged. Pour has an orange amber color with a one finger off white head that retained very well with big pillows on the surface. Aroma has white grapes, hits of tropical fruit, mellow wood, Belgian yeast, and some slightly funky wheat. Mouth feel is light and the carbonation on the lower side but it is there and holds on. Flavor again has nice barrel notes, white wine grapes, mild wood, good fruity esters, Belgian yeast, and some brett into the finish. There is a nice sweet fruit against the brett and mild tartness that plays very well together. The price tag of this was quite high and I was afraid it was going to be spent on a nice packaging job but the beer is excellent!

Un gusto veramente complesso che ti stupisce più e più volte nell’arco di una sola sorsata. Acidità perfettamente equilibrata, che sfocia in una vinosità vistosa ma non soverchiante. Il tutto chiuso dal sapore deciso del Nelson che si conferma come uno dei migliori luppoli di sostegno di una birra così eccentrica e alcolica. Eccezionale. Non bisogna lasciarsela scappare.
