COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Brygget af basismalt og under msknngen og gringen tilsat enzymer for at opn en s hj forgrbarhed som overhovedet muligt. Til bde 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 gr er benyttet bde champagnegr og brettanomyces og pga. enzymerne er llen gret meget langt ned og dermed er slutresultatet en meget tr l. Efter endt gring har llen ligget 5 mneder p hvidvinsfade fra strigske Weingut Kollwentz og opnet yderligere karakter. Til slut er den flasket p 750 ml champagneflasker med et ekstra hjt CO2 indhold.

nearbeer (5144) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 30, 2012
750 ml. Hazy copper with a most annoying five inch head. Aroma is sour leather, vinegar, blackberry, and earthy honey. Taste is flowery honey, sour grapes, oak and toffee. Long finish has some wheat and bubblegum. Medium body is smoothly carbonated and well balanced. Well crafted, as always from Mikkeller, very smooth and nicely sweet and sour.

Flaska frn Brill. En l som r extra allt p ont och gott. Brunorange med stort skum.Doft av vitt vin, krusbr och rabarber. Rejl kropp, syrlig brett, strvbesk humle, rejl beska, torr, stsyrlig. Maffig men lite spretig som nd lyckas balansera p rtt sida utan att bli fr mycket.

Beer5000 (6200) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 24, 2012
Bottle kindly shared by the die by the beer boys @ @ Henrik, Bergen. Hazy amber body with much carbonation and a collapsing off-white head. Aroma is vinous and slightly sour with citric fruity hops. Flavor is light malty, citric fruity, some grapefruit and distinct Nelson hops, decent bitterness. Nice body and a fine aftertaste with fruit and bitterness that ends quite dry. Nice and refreshing with a subtil complexity.

750ml botte - aged about a yesr. Pours murky amber color. Tastes like a darker ba saison. Theres a fair amiunt of sweetness, a nice orange marmalade with a citrus tang - a little funk but def no sour The wine barrel character is present and integrated nicely. Really liked this one a lot.

lefossoyeur (608) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 16, 2012
Copper amber with a good white head, fading. Nice fruity-oaky aromas typical of wine barrel-aged beer with hints of bretts. Chewy palate, fruity with a zesty note, a bit of leather fromthe brett, prickly carbonated, but finishing on the sweet side. Overall, not bad, aromas are great but the palate is way too sweet for my liking and making it everything but quaffable.

Abio (1859) - Waasland, BELGIUM - SEP 1, 2012
Amber coloured beer, didnt see while shopping that it contained Brett. Which is not my thing, but giving it a try. Amber body with a ok head. The brett and sourness are in the smell, but not to overwhelming. At the taste some more.

fletchfighters (1466) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 15, 2012
A-- Poured a dark, golden, hazy, straw color. Solid looking one finger head. Recedes pretty quickly and leaves a lot of soapy foam on the sides of the glass. Good head retention to this. Swirling gets two fingers of head, off white or white brown, and recedes pretty quickly again. S-- Interesting nose. Vinegar, lemon, funk, bread. Sure this is not a sour?? T-- White wine, lemon, vinegar, toasted bread, Peach, Carmel. How very different. M-- Brett adds a very different quality to this. Just a little bit of pucker but some lemon and peach fruitiness to this. Also get the wine barrel at the end and finishes quite dry and crisp with a touch of sourness. D-- Good because it is different
