COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Alvinne Bruin is een roodbruin bier (alc. 6,5 % vol), ongefilterd maar niet gepasteuriseerd met hergisting op fles naar een origineel recept ontwikkeld in onze eigen picobrouwerij te Ingelmunster.
Ingrediënten: water, pilsmout, 5 speciaalmouten, hop (Goldings, Hallertau en Northern Brewer), kandijsuiker en korrelgist Lesaffre T58.
Alvinne Bruin heeft een fruitige neus met duidelijke toetsen van gebrande mout die we ook in de smaak terugvinden. Het heeft een lange moutbittere afdronk. Het bier heeft een positieve smaakevolutie. Schenk Alvinne gekoeld (8 °C) in een tulp- of kelkvormig glas, zorg voor een mooie schuimkraag en laat een residu van 1cm (gist) achter in de fles.
Ten minste houdbaar tot 2 jaar na botteldatum. Langer houdbaar indien droog, donker, rechtop staand en schokvrij bewaard op 12 °C.
Cat. S - Stamwortgehalte: 15,7 °P Kleur: 80 EBC - Bitterheid: 32 EBU

Alvinne’s take on the Belgian dubbel. Very lively and yeast beer, with a large head. Malty, spicey and mildly fruity. Good.

czar (4110) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 12, 2013
2003 vintage. surprise, surprise: not a gusher. pours clear copper, red tint, with a decent light beige head, little retention. fruity caramel, hint of acetic notes, spoiled fruits, grass, spices, hint of garbage, nutty, cheap candi. lively and soft carbonation, light body - slightly watery, hint of sweetness, decent grassy-citrusy finish. did not age well.

Lubiere (9745) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 5, 2012
A clear reddish mahoganny brown ale with a super thick big bubbled dark mocha head. In aroma, smooth herbaceous nutty malt, with caramel, dark fruits, raisins, and light licorice. In mouth, a smooth nutty burned caramel with light curacao, licorice and some signs of oxidation...still in good shape. Bieropholie imports.

bu11zeye (11933) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JAN 25, 2012
(33cl bottle) Pours a clear amber-brown body with a spare off-white head. Aroma of grain, caramel, raisins, watered down whiskey, dates, and old books. Flavor of raisins, plum, yeast, and light chocolate.

kjc51478 (383) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - OCT 1, 2011
33cl Bottle at Delirium. Bottle had visible dust on it giving away how long it had been sitting on their shelf. Aroma is fairly weak but mostly caramel sweetness and doughy yeast. Taste is similar - fairly sweet with caramel and some subtle spice on top of a mild but noticeable Belgian yeast. Not much skunkiness despite its obvious age, but rather weak flavors. Palate is medium-bodied, thin texture, very little carbonation, and a mild sweet finish. Weak for a Belgian ale but drinkable.

Abio (1550) - Waasland, BELGIUM - DEC 19, 2010
Bottle 2003. Brown coloured beer with a medium head that colapse pretty soon to a 1cm lace. Smell is sweet, earthy, overripe fruits. Taste is the same, but with a light sourness comes trough, probably overaged.

Sammy (8354) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 11, 2010
Very pleasant for its style, this brown coloured Belgian was sweetish and very drinkable. Malty and slightly yeasty aroma.

bhensonb (10696) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 21, 2010
Bottle from Bier Temple in Brussels. Pours hazy dark amber with a foamy clingy light beige head. Aroma is somewhat treacle. Medium body with mild foamy carbonation. Flavor is caramel with a touch of treacle, and something like a citrus bitter. A sort of sweet/bitter mix. Pretty good drink.

beerbuzzmontreal (3490) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 16, 2010
Pours a murky brown color with a medium beige head. Very nice aroma of yeast, molasses, raisins and dates. Good flavor of raisins, dates, molasses and yeast. Hmm, this is quite special and interesting.

yngwie (13108) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 28, 2009
Bottle, 33cl. It’s a clear, copper-colored beer with a small, creamy, off-white head sitting on top. Bready, sweet, roasted nose, feeling quite sugary. Sweet, slightly bready flavor with caramel and sugar. Full-bodied and sweet on the palate. The finish has a nice hoppy bitterness to balance it. A decent beer, feeling sort of boring. Still it’s a quite good one. 090828
