3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
One of the many ’composite’ beers of Alvinne, a blend of Morpheus Dark with Kerasus. Off-white, fairly unstable foam, colour a dark, misty burgundy brown. Aroma sourish and woody, sour cherries, sour cream, white grapes, balsamic vinegar, caramel... Sour and lively fruity taste, lactic acid, caramel malts, toasted and woody accents, hay, finish complex, dryingly sourish, lightly roasted, full with some warming alcohol. Complex as expected and not badly balanced.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
0,75 l shared bottle at Melkebaren. Deep amber orange, hazy body with a bubbly small tan colored head. Gushes slightly upon opening. Complex chutney aroma with notes of boozy barrel, but not that complex a flavor although much of what I’ve come to expect from a good sour ale is there. Acidic and a watery vinegary, matured, fruity presence. Medium bodied. On the smooth side of crisp in the mouth.
