Il était logique, sinon symbolique, qu’après Nattelore je m’occupe d’Eva, créée par Sofie Vanrafelghem, sommelier, dont la jolie frimousse orne l’étiquette. Et pour couronner l’ensemble, j’ai fait cette dégustation, bien entendu, dans un verre du "fruit défendu", soyons philosophe sinon théologien … Ceci étant dit, Eva par la voix de Sofie va nous aider, puisqu’elle précise que cette bière est faite "par et pour des femmes" … Sympa la petite !! C’est ce que l’on appelle du sexisme à l’envers (sans jeu de mots …). Blonde ( pas Sofie, la bière) avec 3 houblons : kent golding, cascade et hercules (ben oui). Niveau abv de 6,2 % (comme l’Orval, qui elle, n’est pas faite pour les femmes ..), et ebu de 30. Mon exemplaire était à 7 mois avant sa date. Couleur doré moyen brillant, avec un peu de matière en suspension (ebc 8). Bulles quasi nulles. Mousse blanche qui tombe en un clin d’œil (??), laissant seulement quelques minces flocons en périphérie. Arômes de pain complet, pointe de citron, nez ultra faible et sans harmonie … 1ère bouche souple sur du malt et houblon, avec une pointe fleurie mince. Arrière-bouche très plate (sans autre connotation ..). 2ème sur du blé, un houblon très faible, un peu de pomme. Arrière-bouche de cidre (et je suis gentil ..). 3ème informe, plate. Arrière-bouche de pils … Longueur qui ne redresse rien, et devient accablante... Jambes lisses. Levure assez épicée, belle ligne. Alcool tout à fait inopérant. Finale tout simplement nulle. CONCLUSION : je viens d’apercevoir que cette bière est classée en ipa !!!! Ce n’est pas du tout le cas bien entendu, c’est une simple blonde houblonnée et très mal … Sorry Sofie ...

Bottle shared at Gainsbar - Kortrijk, Belgium. Pours lightly hazy gold with a moderate, creamy white top. Funky nose with notes of fermented citrus fruits, tangerine and sweat. Medium sweet flavor, good and funky, with further tangerine and some light, grassy bitterness. Medium bodied with average to high carbonation. Lightly warming on the finish, sweet but clean, with more grassy hops and robust funk. Very good stuff.

Belgium’s best-known female beer writer Sofie Vanrafelghem gathered her lady friends to create this all-female ale, whatever that may mean, at Alvinne. Thick, snow white head, misty golden blonde colour. Aroma of lemon zest, grass, sour cream, grapefruit, pineapple and sherry. Taste begins fruity (apple, peach) with quite strong carbonation, after which a spicy hoppiness sets in only to become stronger in the course of the palate, eventually leading to a long, spicy, citrussy, almost ’American’ finish. Nice one Sofie, and I get the need to include women in the craft beer experience, since their beer consumption (if any) is usually stereotypically associated with overtly sweet fruit beers rather than this kind of IPA-style ales.

First batch thx Sofie for the bottle. Taste more times 2013. Hazy darkgolden to orange color, with a creamy head. Aroma: bit spice, fruits, hops. Medium body. Taste sweet start, some yeast note, malts and good bitterness.

Palme (4181) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 17, 2014
0.33l bottle @ Haandfest 2013. Really big on the head this! Huge, white, lacing and lasting. All this on top of a cloudy yellow golden beer. Not to much going on on the aroma really. Light yeasty, some flour and grains. Hints of both citrus and Belgian yeast. One of the milder ones I’ve smelled from Alvinne. It has a light average carbonation level and the mouthfeel is mid-oily. Some sweetness in the taste, more grains and it’s light floral. Mild all the way really, guess you can call it balanced - I call it a tad boring and mellow. Not sure what to think of this, but not a big favorite. 25.05.2013

bartlebier (3507) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - JUN 30, 2014
33cl bottle I am guessing courtesy of & merci aan tderoeck? Gusher alert, a nice Alvinne touch there. Mildly wild aromas, saison-like, another Alvinne imprint. Tartness of the mixed spontaneous fermentation supposedly surpressed in Alvinne’s regular brews, harmonising very well with the zippy German, grassy BE hops - not too much of hat Cascade showing up but very late retronasally and oddly in the yeast sediment. Very Belgian body with a heavier feel for its 6%, seamy and suffused with little yeasty side notes. Quite grass-hop and yeast bitter, for assertive lady tasters that can handle that I imagine!

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 7, 2014
Sampled from 0,33 l bottle. A gusher. Bright sun-yellow body. Massive foamy white head. Fruity and light astingent spicy hop notes. Mineral tones. Dry and sharp on the palate, light body. Clean bitterness. Light orangey and grassy hop flavor. Restrained malt body. Sharp, yet refreshing fruity-bitter finish.

On tap at Haand Festival. It’s an orange-yellow beer topped by a small, off-white head leaving lacings. Lightly spiced aroma with yeast, white sugar and fruityness. Quite pleasant but more reminiscent of a regular Belgian style ale than an IPA. The flavor has the same problem, if it can be called a problem, but at least there’s some bitterness. Quite fruity with some white sugar and yeast. Vague spice hints. Too much carbonation, medium bodied and semi-dry. Bitter finish with herbal notes. Well, nothing bad going on here, it’s just a tad boring. 130525

Dorata. Odori forti di luppoli contrastanti. Carbonazione eccessiva. Schiuma abbondante. Amara ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
