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.

Draught at Mikkeller & Friends. Hazy, golden-amber colour with a thin, white head. Fruity aroma with citrus, yeasts, bretts, grape fruits, oak, vanilla and caramel malts. Taste is light sweet. Medium to full with a creamy texture and a lively carbonation. Finishes lasting dry and fruity with bretts and citrus fruits. Lovely classic from Mikkeller.

Wow, super complex aroma, a bit of Belgian yeast, a light Brett touch, and the wine barrels are all clear. Very drinkable, the time in the wine casks gives a great dry finish, very difficult to detect the 9% abv. Fantastic .

Pours hazy orange with a thick white head. Aromas lots of fruit, apricots, mango, citrus, gooseberries, vinous notes, brett and some woody dry notes. Taste is as the nose, lots of fruit, citrus, mango, light hops, dry wood and gooseberries. The brettanomyces are very present. Lovely.

Pours a deep golden color with a big head and good lace.
The aroma is fruity with plenty of lemon and melon, it’s lightly funky & very inviting.

The flavor tickles my fancy just so, a tart citrus akin to meyer lemons & muskmelon along with a mild bitterness, a very pleasant dry character and a light bit of sour fruit. The alcohol is masterfully concealed and th shop character is dominant but perfectly inter-woven.

Wonderful really,

750ml c&c bottle from SHIG, I think. Poured an orange/amber body under a large fizzy off-white head. Aroma/flavor, funky, rotting fruit, earth, lemongrass, vinous. Flavor also has some cherry, chardonnay and wet wood. Full body from stronger carbonation that is fizzy and a medium mouthfeel with a nice lingering aftertaste.

Intenso aroma, ácido, igual que su sabor. Su maduración en barrica de vino le confiere un sabor ácido único, difícil de conseguir y que salga una buena cerveza.

Sparf (193) - Östersund, SWEDEN - APR 24, 2015
Först aprikos-/persikodoft, sedan kraftig kattpiss. Tendens till disighet. Vackert bärnstens färgad med dragning mot rött. Smakrik, halm, malt och aning vinjästig smak med saftigt mogen stenfrukt. Fyllig och rund smak med perfekt kolsyra. Vinös ananas i den halvtorra eftersmaken.

Loads of grapefruit on the front end, pithy and ruby. Berry fruit aromas, acidic, vinous, herbal. Light medium body, creamy feel, fine white foam. Wow, this is delicious. Thank you Andy.

Bottle. somewhat of a gusher on opening. Pours clear reddish amber with a large white head that mostly dissipates leaving a lot of residual and good lacing. Aroma is initially quite funky, barnyard and horse blanket. After it breathes out some oaky and vinous notes, some fruitiness, passionfruit almost. Flavor is very light sweet, dry indeed, just a light tartness to go with medium funk, medium bitterness and a ton of vinous and oaky notes. There is a tropical note to it as well, presumably from the Nelson hops, although my bottle, being from 2013, has likely seen most of the specific hop character fade with time. There is a certain heat in the finish due to the 9% ABV.
