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.

750 cc from Capone’s. Pours hazy, deep copper colored with splotchy, off-white head. Nose is fruity, champagne yeast, oaky, spicy, black peppery notes. Tastes dry, very fruity, with white grapes, melon, pear, florals, black pepper, oaky tannins, and hops. Super complex palate and finish. This one is delicious.

italianjohn (2873) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 20, 2016
Hazy golden orange pour with a thin white head and thick bands of sticky lacing .... Aroma of sweet berries, grapes, vinous and sweet malts ..... Taste is of sweet berry like yeast, funky Brett, and vinous, has a bittersweet grape flavor ... Dry finish with fruity dry vinous notes .... Abv hidden well white wine is hidden beneath a sweet Berry flavor overall not bad at all

kapusil (1139) - Budapest, HUNGARY - FEB 18, 2016
0.75l bottle as Nelson Sauvin. Hazy orange body with a very thin white head. Aroma of caramel, lemon zest, bubble gum, lichi, funkyness and some strawberry. Taste of caramel, bread, lemon zest, grape must, bubble gum and berries. Sweet, sour and bitter at the same time. Magnificent.

Cristobal37 (764) - Budapest, HUNGARY - FEB 18, 2016
Fresh fruity hops and a slight belgian sourness. White wine is certainly dominant but there’s still some fruity berry sweetness and mild hop bitterness. Dry white wine finish with some sticky hop resin. Really badass beer.

Pours sparkling golden amber with orange touch. Small white head, very good lacing. Aroma is straw, lots and lots of brett, flowers, white wine, pear, apple, some nutmeg, some exotic fruit. Rather dry, medium to heavy bitter,medium to heavy sour, dry lingering beautiful finish. Very complex, beautifully balanced, excellent champagne-like qualities, alcohol is non-existent. Absolutely fantastic brew.

mikesaum (711) - Newark, Ohio, USA - FEB 4, 2016
Pours a dark goldish color, not much of a head. Aroma is very bretty, some tropical fruit notes, light oak. Taste threw me off, I expected it to be more tart, but its actually quite rich, vinous, wine notes and some of the tropical fruit, mostly dried pineapple, good dry finish. Interesting and delicious.
