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.

Bottle from Cotteridge Wines. Some things: i) I was frightened to drink this, lest it didn’t live up to expectation.................... it did; ii) lovely flavour of white wine, Nelson Sauvin hops; iii) lovely sourness - not overtly funky, but crisply tart, with equality of sweetness and sourness; iv) THIS IS OUTSTANDING; v) does not drink like 9% - seems more like 5%, which makes this incredible sinkable and lethal; vi) Wow, just wow.

Tydlig brett doft. Citrus. Extremt kolsyrad. Som en skumpa. Påminner verkligen om en mousserande. Torr och porlande. Kolsyrad gösser i smaken. Inte så mycket smak. Blir spännande att prova om ett par år. Men räcker med ett glas. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bärnstensfärgad kropp. Frisk doft av jästa äpplen och vitt vin. Mkt frisk smak. Belgisk jäst, vingummi, calvados och en oljig touch av Nelson Sauvignon. Gillar verkligen den här ölen.

Lukasmh (459) - Aarhus, DENMARK - DEC 23, 2014
Bottle, a nice one. Pours hazy orange with big frothy foamy off-white head, sparkling. Aroma has tons of grapes! Funky brett, dry wood, slight leather oaky vanilla, really complex and delicate. Sweet peach candy, pomelo, acidic passion fruit. Taste is sweet juicy apricots. Slight bready malts, vanilla, tart apples, oak, acidic white wine. Finish has dry wood and delicious white pepper. Body is so damn delicious, fizzy and creamy. No alcohol at all. This beer is extremely balanced and complex in a very delicate way.
