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.

@ S.Brevinga Alus Salons. Very interesting beer. First, pleasant aroma of Nelson Sauvin, but you can’t feel a lot of hops in taste as well as 9ABV of alcohol, nice sourness and wine notes.

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.
