Säuerlicher Antrunk mit bitter-hefiger Note, disharmonisch, wie ein einziger großer Fehlton wirkend. Bitter und sauer auch im Mittelteil wowie Abgang, wenig kräuterartig. Kein würdiges Geburtstagsbier! 9/5/5/6/4/4

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Erasmus 9/2/09 as "Alvinne Dertig": Cloudy amber orange pour has a large pillowy froth of clumpy-lacing white head. Aroma of sweet lightly toasted caramel with some floral earthy hops and doughy yeastiness. Starts with good fullness and rich biscuity pale malty sweetness well balanced with an earthy grassy hop complexity before a full, drier bittersweet finish. An enjoyable and fairly complex Belgian strong ale.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at Hotels Erasmus, Bruges.
Cloudy yellow/orange colour with a big, longlasting head. American hops a la Warrior/Colombus dominate the aroma. The beer is sweet and dirty and sprawls all over. Kind of sticky, with somewhat rounded body. The American hop sensations was long gone and left was maybe a bit of choriander.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
A Mes rate. Bottle in our hotel room looking out of our window onto a truly spectacular view.
Hazy dark yellow with a huge pillowy white head. Heavy yeast on the nose along with lots of spice a little fruit and plenty of sweet bread. The flavour is similar but seems a little too yeasty and the aggressive carbonation gives it a slight feel of infection. The finish brings it back round. Really good sweet fruity malt, some bread and biscuits and then some late lemon. Given the 1985 Stille Nacht we had before this, it had a hard act to follow. Good enough but certainly not the best Alvinne beer. Still, a toast to an exceptional day, good friends, good food, good weather... Life is good.
