bhensonb (13228) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 17, 2009
Bottle at Alvinne. Pours amber with a nice yellow/beige head. Medium body with firm carbonation. Flavor is oaky and vinous.Malt and mild spice. Lightly (word in note is smudged). Flavors dance around. Finish is dry. It is an extremely tasty beer.

thebeertourist (5158) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 13, 2009
Bottle. Over-eager to get out of the bottle, the head died down somewhat after a dramatic start. Hazy, red copper colour with some sediment. Intense vinous aroma, quite a bit of woody notes, sour fruit. A lot of berry flavours, strawberries, hints of vanilla, sour fruit, an dry wood, especially towards the finish. Great stuff.

Madsnp (933) - DENMARK - JUL 3, 2009
Bottle. Cloudy reddish amber coloured brew with a big frothy white head. Aromas of spice, oak, fruity sweetness and slight balsamic. Flavour is tart and dry with notes of sour fruit, wood, spice and apples. A bit weak and thin.

Kåstå (1273) - Mol, BELGIUM - JUN 24, 2009
Copper coloured with a medium head. Very weak light sour aroma. I would describe it as a Rodenbach mild with a more bitter woody taste. It is however a bit thin.

Christian (12205) - Odense, DENMARK - JUN 19, 2009
UPDATED: DEC 19, 2010 June 2009: Cloudy amber with a big and lasting off-white head. Strong aroma of oak, giving me both coconut and wine. Dry and tart oak flavour, rather vineous. Very American in it’s character.

Borefts Festival 2010: Has developed more brett character, more funk, and a touch of popcorn. Tart cherries in the flavour

75cl bottle @ De Molen Shop. Pours a dark hazy amber/reddish with a full creamy egg white head and lacings. Nose is vinous. Red wine, oak and fruits. Smooth palate. Slight tart and dry end. Nice

harrisoni (16056) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2009
75cl bottle from the Alvinne brewery shop. Orangey red colour with thin lasting off white head. Flemish red sour ale aroma. which is remarkably attractive. A touch of the wine, but almost sour cherry like. Touch of wood on the aroma too. That’s one good smelling beer. A little sweeter than a full on sour, which I guess comes from the wine. Certainly this beautiful wild cherry/red wine aroma/flavour comes through. It really is very good indeed. Just the right level of wild yeast character gives it a biting sourness on the finish, but wonderfully balanced by some very juicy light red fruits. Ridiculously drinkable. Good condition in mouth, the right level of carbonation, a little soft, not harsh, but enough to tingle the tongue. As a vinous Flemish sour, it really is remarkably good.
