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.

Draft glass @ Gollem. Finally I get tot this one. Lightly hazy amber / orange, creamy faintly tanned head. Nose is rich wine, funky wine, big brett, orange peel, toffee, sweet wine, malt sweetness on top, unique sweet & funk, caramelized carrot, fermenting white grapes,... Taste is sweet toffee, orange, candy, caramelized candy, sweetness mixed with the funk, toffee, big orange peel, white grape, some sugar, brett in the middle, funky grapes, intense mix of many things, finish is bitter on top, fruit,... Carries a combo of so many things, orange peel, funky grapes, brett, bitter finsh,... Body is toffee, orange peel, sugar, highly interesting version. I preferred the Chardonnay BA version which I tried prior to this one, I am curious to try some other versions. Big malt, sugar, toffee don’t make it dry like the description promises, I do not care but this would have probably been better if dry.

SvanteL (644) - SWEDEN - FEB 3, 2017
Ljus bärnsten, grumlig med stort vitt skum. Fruktig doft med inslag av gräs och örter och syrlighet från bret och vin. Smaken är syrlig och fruktig, aningen stallig, örter och gräs, lite fatkaraktär, mycket komplex. En väldigt speciell öl, mycket god och spännande.
