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.

This has got to be one of the best beer I’ve ever had. It is truly a work of art. Poured into a wine glass, it displays a bright redish hue with an off white head. The nose is complex, very fruity, a little funky, and a little bit of the wood comes through. The flavors are huge and change with almost ever sip. Its tart up front, juicy in the middle, and ends with a nice dry finish that sends this one soaring for me. Very well put together, will purchase again even at twenty two dollars a bottle, worth every penny.

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 (249) - 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.

Jaksmart (447) - Aarhus, DENMARK - DEC 21, 2014
Bottle 2014 edition. Hazy orange, big frothy white head. Beautiful! Packed with grapes, subtle funky leather, flowery brett and dry white wine notes with peach and mandarin, orange and melon. It really is amazingly complex, delicate and subtle. Taste is also packed with bretty and grapy goodness, very dry and loaded with fruits and berries, almost perfect balance, nothing seems misplaced. The body and carbonation are really well aligned.
