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.

Poured from a 750 cc bottle into a crystal stem glass. Pours mostly translucent apricot orange. Bubbly like champagne. Generous head leaving lingering lacing. Aroma is rich in citrus, especially lemon, as well as peach and apricot with notes of coriander and spice. The flavour is a sour mash reminiscent of a lambic, with notes of apricot, lemon, and grapefruit. The brettanomyces influence comes through nicely. The mouthfeel is effervescent like a sparkling wine. I love this!

Bottle. somewhat of a gusher on opening. Pours clear reddish amber with a large white head that mostly dissipates leaving a lot of residual and good lacing. Aroma is initially quite funky, barnyard and horse blanket. After it breathes out some oaky and vinous notes, some fruitiness, passionfruit almost. Flavor is very light sweet, dry indeed, just a light tartness to go with medium funk, medium bitterness and a ton of vinous and oaky notes. There is a tropical note to it as well, presumably from the Nelson hops, although my bottle, being from 2013, has likely seen most of the specific hop character fade with time. There is a certain heat in the finish due to the 9% ABV.

Not my kind of beer, but a is a must, a candy for a child. Strong peach and grape notes, well balanced, with some grassy notes.

Jimthechap (1885) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 26, 2015
Hazy appearance (surprise, surprise) and a peachy amber colour and an aroma that suggests unripe peachy fruitiness. Fulsome in the mouth with a good dash of sweetness, apricots, white peaches and a little bit of tang. It was much cleaner than I expected and dangerously easy to drink. There was a whole lot to like and a lot more depth that I was expecting. Lovely stuff.

Desverger (2793) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 25, 2015
Tap@Mikkeller & Friends, Copenhagen - amber/copper coloured pour with thin white head. Medium sweet malty and fruity aroma and taste, crisp with some citrus floral and bretty notes, some grape and wooden nuance, some mild spice, very enjoyable brew.

Great beer. Brett is evident but does not dominate the flavours. If anything the oak which comes through. Quite dry.

On tap @BBF2015 Orangée, peu voire pzs de collet. Nez leger sur le caramel. Attaque douce et crémeuse, ronde. Bonne longueur sur caramel. On ne sent pas du tout le taux d’alcool élevé.
