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.

750ml botte - aged about a yesr. Pours murky amber color. Tastes like a darker ba saison. There’s a fair amiunt of sweetness, a nice orange marmalade with a citrus tang - a little funk but def no sour The wine barrel character is present and integrated nicely. Really liked this one a lot.

tectactoe (2195) - Michigan, USA - NOV 9, 2014
Bottle: Dark brown, ruddy copper body with a thin, bubbly, khaki colored film on top. Aroma is very wine-like & vinous. White & red grape with notes of darker fruits, plums, prunes & a light tartness with a hint of booze behind everything. Flavor is a bit nutty & almost toasty, although still very vinous & wine forward. Slightly warming booze, earthy hop notes, red licorice, mild woody elements towards the finish with a little bit of semi-spicy Belgian yeast making for a mostly clean finish. Bubbly mouth feel, aftertaste of dark fruit & faint red wine. Good, but I didn’t love it like I thought I would.

"what a great beer! hoppy, fruity, oak, white wine grapes, and a little funk all come through in about equal measure. Each sip was a delight. Lively body and a nice dry finish."

pushkinwow (2062) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 10, 2014
Bottle from Alen. Dark amber with a creamy beige head. Light tartness and maltiness that reminds me slightly of a flanders red, smooth, zinfindel, oak, oak, apple, light peach. Moderate carbonation and body, tangy, hint of citrus on the palate, slightly sweet but more tangy, bit dry, quite enjoyable.

Reimer96 (1311) - Alberta, CANADA - JUL 12, 2014
Pours a lightly hazy dark copper with a huge frothy off white head. Aroma of brett, funk, white wine, wood and light spicy pepper. Taste is wood, white wine, oak, light funkiness, fruity and some alcohol warmth on the finish. Finishes really dry as well which makes this a complex beauty... Pleasure to drink!

Odeur de petit pet et de gestion fraîchement coupé. Même rondeur en bouche que le citera, avec une pointe d’épice plus prononcée.

cmacklin (304) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 25, 2014
750 ml bottle. Pours a hazy amber with a huge, long lasting, good lacing, off-white head. Aroma has notes of citrus, brettanomyces, wine and a little barnyard. Flavour is sweet with grapefruit, pine and a sour, dry, bitter finish. Medium body, watery to oily texture and soft carbonation. Pretty good but slightly over-rated.
