Nelson Sauvignon BA Chardonnay by Mikkeller is a New Year's beer fermented with ale yeast and bretts. Pours clear orange with a thick white head. Sweet white grape aroma with tropical fruits, hops, hints of wood, grapes, yeast and herbal notes. Dry and vinous complex flavour with chardonnay, fruity hoppy and some juicy grape notes, hints of bretta, yeast, pine and citrus. Finish is smooth, vinous, slightly hoppy and yeasty with some hints of tart bretts and herbal notes. Not so bitter but the hop character is very pronounced.
