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.

talon1117 (1152) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 21, 2011
The beer pours a very hazy, deep amber-chestnut color with a full, off-white, very creamy, fluffy head which is mostly lasting and leaves tight, soapy lace. The nose is like no other I have smelled; very white vinous, typical gooseberry, dry flowers, light resinous pine, bretty funk, some, kiwi, and faint toasted vanilla. The flavor is similar with some buttery oak, faint toasted vanilla notes, similar fruity notes as the nose, dry floral and leaves, light pine, tart brett, and just a bit of funk; the bitterness is more than moderate as well as the acidity. The palate is moderate, less than lively, creamy, and bone dry. The finish is longer than expected, bone dry, slightly bitter, tart acidity, leafy notes, and a bit resinous. Not sure of the price tag, but this beer was miraculous. The fruit notes were completely complementary to the dry brett and hop bitterness. And the palate worked well with the flavor progression. I am not sure how Mikkeller does it with every brew but this one was nearly perfect for this type of beer. Amazing.

Aromă foarte plăcută de bere lambic clasică (multă acritură, miros specific de lambic/drojdii sălbatice, ceva murături, butoi cu drojdii de mult timp, note de vin alb înăcrit). Gustul ”conține” mai puține caracteristici de bere lambic, acestea fiind ”cu forța” deplasate pe planul doi (drojdii sălbatice, puțină acreală, vin înăcrit, butoi cu drojdii vechi), pe prim plan mult malț, ceva vin matur, puțină amăreală pierdută/contopită prin/cu drojdiile sălbatice, dulceață de must de vin proaspăt, ușoară caramelă. Operă de artă! Așa de bine s-a reușit a face o bere lambic, dar fără a fi în totalitate lambic. ”Standing ovation” pentru așa măiestrie.

Piwo koloru bursztynowego z konkretną czapą białej piany. W aromacie nuty winne, skórzane, lekka obora, trochę cytrusów i trochę owoców tropikalnych. W smaku lekka stajnia, tropikalne owoce, skóra, grejpfrutowa goryczka, ziołowość. Nie jest złe, ale piłem lepsze bruty.

Smak och doft choklad, malt, kakao, choklad, kaffe, vanilj. Smakar som en frisk och syrlig porter/stout, om detta är en svart IPA eller en saison råder det en viss förvirring om. FIn beska.

Can at home. Copperish-orangeish colour, with a finger of white head with good retention. Nose is light sourness, with definitive whitewine notes. Taste is low bitterness, faint sourness. Longlasting sticky bitter aftertaste. Strong alcoholic warmth. The nose is brilliant, sadly the taste doesn’t deliver as much.
