Dedollewaitor (14089) - Odense, DENMARK - JUN 16, 2009
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 (14020) - 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.

yngwie (13946) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 23, 2009
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

MiP (13725) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAR 15, 2009
UPDATED: AUG 22, 2009 Bottle, 5.5%. The aroma starts off weakly fruity, with some vanilla from the oak. Some citric aroma notes as well, reminding me of Brett. Quite cloudy dark grey brown colour. Very small white head. The flavour starts off citric, very fruity and vinous. Tastes like grape juice, and even more acidic. Nicely refreshing. Some vanilla in the aftertaste, slightly rough bitterness.

Travlr (13023) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - FEB 19, 2012
Draft at Max’s in Baltimore. Murky purplish red color, small white head. Aroma of prunes, dates. Taste is sweet and sour summer fruit. Not bad.
Earlier Rating: 9/21/2010 Total Score: 4
750 ml bottle courtesy of Davy, shared with BigMomma. Hazy orange color, small white head. Aroma of brett, orange peel, summer fruit. Taste is subtle sourness with orange peel, apricot. Should become more characterful with age.

TBone (12964) - Pori, FINLAND - OCT 8, 2010
Bottled 750ml (Beer Planet, BB 06/2015)
Dark nut brown, reddish color, no head. Sour nose with strong aroma of red wine. Light to medium bodied. Easier than the most Alvinne barrel cask brews: red wineous tannines, sourness - but not too much of bretta, some oak and cellar. Grapes are evident in this beer. Quite balanced "red wine beer".
