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.

UPDATED: JAN 21, 2013 Bottle @ Il pretesto. It pours golden orange with a tiny white head on top. Very fruity with orange hints... and then there it is the sour! But never covering the global complexity. A great beer!!

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.

Wow, golden amber in colour light touch of nutty hazyness to it with a lovely lightly beige head and coherent lacing. Noses of floral fruits, grapefruit, citrus, peach, and ripe grapes, a pretty eyebrow raising complexity. Light lively with a slick and velvety texture on the palate. Medium to full body further developing on the palate. Rather refreshing with a finish lasting balanced on the back of the palate which awaits another sip. Excellent beer.

Perhaps the best beer I ever had. Dry, champagne-y, gooseberry and exotic fruit (grapefruit) aromas and flavours. would be excellent for a New Year's Eve drink or aperitif. Or for celebrating anything really. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap @ Bishops Arms Linnégatan. The genius of this beer came as a complete surprise to me. One sip, and I started asking myself wheter this was a modern version of Orval, or maybe a new beer from the Dolle. It’s funky, tart, sweet, fruity and hoppy at the same time (and in a way that only the breweries mentioned above has managed to brew before). It’s super complex, and very very drinkable. Notes of black currant (a lot!), brett, wood, vinous bitterness, orange, citrus and christmas spices. Smooth.

Clear golden orange with a tint of red. Large, frothy head. Aroma of red berries, grapes and wood. Hints of barnyard and tartness. Taste is grapefruity fruity grapeish.. A little sweet at first, bitter then dry. Mouthfeel is light and fizzy. One of the best beers I’ve had.

Måske muligvis den bedste øl der findes. Westvleteren er sjælden god - Mikkellers Nelson-Sauvignon er ikke så sjælden og bedre! Bum!

One of the best, most refreshing and overall interesting beers i’ve ever had. Being a big fan of Nelson hops (and Simcoe) i was vey excited to try this mixture out. Deep orange color with a foamy off white head leaving lacings, nice. Aroma was really wonderfull. Its had all the intense grape and sweet citrus mix of the nelson, but unlike many ipas (where i usually get my Nelson fix) its wasnt toffee/caramel that balanced it out, but Brett! Its turned out to be extremly refrehing. The yeast added a nice acidity to the bitter and cane sugery sweet flavor. Also has some freh underripe fruity notes that came through in the end. Great great beer overall and much better than the un-barrel version i tasted on the festival.

Carbònic molt fi, com d’escumós gran reserva. Notes àcides, amargues i dolces. Complexa i vinosa. Final sec. M’ha encantat.

750mL bottle, pours a beautiful vibrant opaque orangey amber with a voluminous white head. Aroma is very vinous and yeasty, with loads of brett-like yeast, sauvignon blanc, dry lemon and orange zest with a bit of fruity notes. Flavour is incredibly complex with an amazing balance of dry white wine, brett, dry fruity notes, lemon rind - so much depth and balance, with strong lasting flavours. The barrels accentuated the complexity so expertly. Damn delicious.
