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.

lhns03 (82) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 5, 2013
Pours a mostly clear dark golden. Aromas are noticeable as soon as bottle is open. Some vegetal notes, cut grass, honey, and some brett funk, horsey pasture. Flavors are equally complex with well-balanced sweetness up front and well-hidden. Palate is very active and lush. Overall a nice complex offering from mikkeller.

McNeillR (1778) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 6, 2015
Clear as a bell golden, visible carbonation and . Nose is rich, sticky bretty funk and a lean winey buzz. Initial taste is a firm sweetness, weirdly strawberry and a slick grapey wet sock dip. Carbonation is firm, clean enough but firm mouthfeel. Finishes sweetly bitter, long greasy brett and massively clean melon.

radiomgb (2517) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 26, 2015
750ml bottle for Premier Gourmet in Buffalo, New York. Orange-amber in colour, large off-white head, excellent lacing, excellent retention. The aroma is acidic and sour, apples and lots of white grapes, gooseberries, tropical. The flavour is very fruity, lots of grapefruit and grapes, some green apples, tart, funky, brett, some wood. Tart, slightly sour mouthfeel, medium body, high carbonation. Finishes long, tart with lots of sour fruit. An excellent beer. So drinkable, each sip seems different then the last.

thirstyrabbit (1448) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 25, 2015
Bottle, BB 16/10/22, so it’s almost 3 years old. Gushing a bit on opening but I was prepared for this to happen. Cool paper wrap around the bottle but I’m a bit disappointed that it turned out to have a plastic cork instead of a real cork. Pours a brighter sort of orange body with a medium to small head. Aroma has plenty of brett and some light fruity hoppiness, later hints of light white wine are added. Everything is subtle and not too assertive. Taste has some bretty notes mixing with overripe oranges and a touch of white wine. Not getting any specific kind of NZ hops, I think the funkiness is overshadowing them at this point. Soft carbonation and semi-dry finish. Although I didn’t have it fresh, I think ageing has mellowed the carbonation and sweetness, at least it feels this way. Very interesting beer - if you like brettanomyces then it’s a must try (but I don’t think it’s currently available in any local shop here). However, it must be noted that the 2012 bottle of Orval I had as a warm up for this one was even more satisfying.

Senap (480) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JUL 21, 2015
Intressant öl, förhållandevis syrlig. Den påminner om vitt vin eller cider. Mer av sällskapsöl än matöl?
