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.

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.

Gran bel prodotto di casa Mikkeller che ben sposa le note vinose al gusto burroso del nelson sauvin. Costosa ma anche golosa !!!

Older bottle shared by a guy (Andrew) I’d just met at Volo - super generous. Deep ruby amber pour with a thin white head. The nose is very fruity and a little bit of soft tartness. There is a little bit of soft fruit and a touch of light fruitiness along with a touch of soft sweetness. Barrel is subtle but definitely lends this a nice vineous character. Pretty lovely beer.

Tomy63 (190) - Clermont-Ferrand, FRANCE - NOV 26, 2013
IPA vieillie en fûts ayant contenu du Sauvignon blanc autrichien. Mélange parfaitement maîtrisé et équilibré entre une IPA aux notes de pamplemousse, abricot, citron, litchi, et un peu amère, et une finition qui lui donne un côté vineux (comme une gueuze), acide, avec du raisin blanc, de la poire, et une sécheresse boisée. Excellent.

750 ml bottle Brut version. Pours amber red with a sudsy off white head that fades to a spotty film and collar. Aroma has faint bread wine and berry and malt. Taste has red wine malt slight funk yeast and dark fruit and tannins. Palate is thin fizzy and drying. Really nice beer.
