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.

bottleforager (3208) - Gray, Maine, USA - FEB 10, 2013
Pours a hazy golden orange color with three fingers of sticky eggshell foam. The nose is very vinous with lots of barrel character, brett, grass, pine. On the palate its a lot of the same with nice complexity. Ripe grapefruit, touch of acidity, fresh grass, honeyed malts and a bit of horse blanket funk to round out the palate. Nice beer.

330ml can. Gold, slightly hazy. Small clingy white cap, ok lacing. Aroma - brett, funky, grapes, fruity. Taste - big brett funk, white wine, some alcohol, fruity and bready malt. Dry finish, winey and bretty. Awesome, not the kind of beer I expect to see in a can. Well done overall, pretty awesome value as well.

Cerveza color ámbar turbio corona de espuma de baja retención. Aroma a frutos, levaduras belgas. Al paladar fácil de beber, baja carbonatacion con notas a fruta, especias de inicio ligeramente amargo y al final se percibe ese característico sabor del vino. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

GhostS (518) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - SEP 27, 2017
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.

imperial_suchy (286) - Rybnik, POLAND - AUG 21, 2017
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.

BuckeyeBoy (8500) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 18, 2017
Bottle pours golden amber topped with a small head. Nose is nice spice Brett wine grape barrel notes. Taste is more of the nice Brett wine some light fruit and spice.

janribbe (51) - SWEDEN - AUG 3, 2017
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.
