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: MAR 17, 2015 Bottle. Hazy copper liquid with small to medium white head. Aroma of white wine, gooseberries, black currants, light bread, light barnyard and light red berries. Taste is dry and light bitter with notes of light wood, gooseberries and red berries. Light to medium bodied with medium to high carbonation. Really elegant and well executed. 8/4/8/4/16 -> 4.0

McWorta (1627) - LUXEMBOURG - JUL 7, 2013
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.

Bottle share. Thanks to vertical bacon strips for this gift back in the day. Holdbar date 04/05/21. Aroma of dark fruit and citrus, heavily infused with Nelson Sauvignon hops. Taste is tart fruit, more Nelson. Very great.

HopRedHead (397) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 25, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2014 Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours golden brown with a creamy head and thick lacing. Smells like peach, grapes, brettanomyces and a resiny hops. Taste is full bodied, lots of plum and grape and vinous flavours balanced with resin hops makes for a really complex and luscious tasting beer. Lingering sweet bitterness, killer.

JStax (6501) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - JUN 21, 2013
750 ml bottle thanks to weihenweizen. Pours a translucent copper with a thin wispy white head of foam. Aroma is bretty and wing and oaky. Tastes fruity and drily sweet. Smells better than it tastes. Very drinkable for the abv.

4.5
banii (240) - Sola, NORWAY - JUN 19, 2013
750ml bottle, more than 2 years old. Deep golden colour. White fluffy head. Fantastic aromas of grapes, wood, brett and some toffee. Taste is complex, with some acid, brett, oak, grapefruit and caramel. One of the best beers out there!
