Mikkeller Nelson Sauvin Brut BA Chardonnay
A new, and special edition of what is easily one of my favorite beers on this here Earth. The traditional version of Nelson Sauvin Brut from Mikkeller is a Belgian Golden Ale aged in oak barrels with Nelson Sauvin hops and brettanomyces. This new edition ups the ante, aging the base beer in Chardonnay barrels. I love how the citrus and tropical fruit note interplay between the Nelson Sauvin hops, the wine barrel and the brettanomyces. Bottled to a Brut level of carbonation, this beer makes for an incredible Champagne replacement, or just for a lively, fruity, bone dry and delicious beer.
