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.

Bottle. Aroma very intense, fruity, maracuja, grapes, very fresh, very inviting. Clear golden colour. Taste nasterfully combines three elements - exotic maracuja hoppiness, subtle white wine barrels and bubblegum bretty funk. Top league.

Tap at Mikkeller Viktoriagade. Pours clear orange amber, small head. Aroma is insane tropical fruit and Sauternes, with mango, dank lychee, Brett, durian, peach, honey, and faint pine. Taste is fruit and honey at first with some dry Orval-like character through the middle and then finish of pineapple and sweet white wine. Syrupy but with some effervescence, and alcohol is well hidden. Impressive.

Vestergaard (1107) - 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 (2528) - 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.

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

Pours a deep orange with a huge white head. Aroma is brett, barnyard funk and slight coriander. Taste is apricot sweet initially followed by a lemon tartness, slightly mild sour yeasty bacteria and a bit of coriander. Quite carbonated and medium bodied.
