sebletitje (7156) - Enghien, BELGIUM - DEC 10, 2011
bottle 66cl from Alvinne Biershop. Batch#2, from 2009, bottled in June 2010. Ambrée brumeuse, presque pas de mousse si ce n’est qcq bulles le long du verre. Arôme de barrique et vin rouge, léger malt et caramel. En bouche, agréable et très léger, avec la levure Morpheus qui se fait discrète.Ressent un profile moyennement aigre le tout sur des notes boisées avec ce profile fruité rouge/raisins agréable. Petite pointe d’épice sur la fin.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2009
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.

mabel (7015) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 20, 2009
[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.

douglas88 (6809) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 12, 2011
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.
