4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at the brewery. This copper ale poured with a decent beige head and a delightlful oak aroma. The wild yeast provides a delicious sourness to the mild base. It is a very subtle but well-crafted flavor that has benefited from 8 months in a burgundy barrel.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tasted at the big “SeaBass has got to go” tasting courtesy of fogdog. Pours murky deep copper with thin white head. The aroma is tart and berry like along with some sour and tart crushed aspirin. The taste is thin on the palate and pulls up notes of berry tartness or maybe cranberry along with tart and drying and almost chalky tart crushed aspirin.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
[2412-20090801] Bottle. Barrel-on-the-floor aroma also suggests fruit and beans. Hazy, dark tan orange body with a quick foamy off-white head. Sweet fruity malt flavour has a long wood barrel aftertaste. Medium-full body. Average, didn’t really capture my interest.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
An interesting beer we got from Belgium. Pours a dark copper color with a medium white head. The aroma is very vinous with some strawberries and tartness. A sweet vinous brew with some caramel and dusty yeast, a bit of lacto and sourness but very smooth. Dry. Quite nice.

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.
