3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 75cl, courtesy of yespr. A hazy, orange gusher giving a white head. Slightly oaked nose with vanilla and brett notes. Citrus too. The flavor is acidic, with pale malts and brett, fruityness and a vinous touch. Effervescent and quite dry in the mouth. Some alcohol when disappearing down the throat. Not so very good initially, but gets better as you drink it. 090822

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. [thank you, Harrisoni]
Pours lightly hazy copper-red with a fine, staying, creamy, off-white head. Aroma has some tart fruit notes, clear green grapes, oak, red wine, light raspberries and a touch of caramel. Highish carbonation, a bit thin mouthfeel. Flavour is lightly tart, some caramel, lots of oak, good fruitiness, grapes, peach. Light lemony and very dry finish. Fine, but it might have fared better with another percent in alcohol?

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
It floods out of the bottle upon opening and the beer is unclear copper-orange-golden. The aroma is sour with notes of yeast, fruit and wood. The flavor is like sour wine and vinegar with notes of wood and fruit, and the finish is tart. Sounds worse, but it’s kind of OK.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A Mes rate. Bottle at home.
An awesome clean golden brown colour. Amazing calvados / apple aroma with caramel, burnt sugar, excellent fruity notes and just the right amount of barrel. The flavour is even better. Again the barrel notes are stunning and in perfect harmony with the fruit, wine and tarty sourness. Excellent dry mouth feel makes it hugely drinkable. Not brimming with complexity but what it does, it does exceptionally well. Basically it’s superb wine barrel notes with a simple but excellent base beer. Alvinne continue to go from strength to strength.
