Bitter blond beer nice balance with a great bitter aftertaste. The beer is starting with a floral start and a light spicy middle with a hoppy bitter end. Good beer to show the fact that girls have hoppy fun. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone By Belleketels

330 ml bottle at home. Pours hazt orangy golden with a creamt and quite rich head. Like it. The nose is quite floral and spicy (some ginger and lemongrass). Medium body with initially some sweetness and a quite bitter finish. Taste is pale malt and yeast. This is quite a pecullar Belgian beer, going against the "average" Belgian IPA (as far as one can say we master that style). Well done. I love it. Those women can brew (in the brewery of some men :-))

Botella de 330ml. Copa Globo de Hornbeer. Ambarina y turbia con espuma blanca, tupida y persistente que crea una sólida capa. Intensos aromas de malta cristal, hierbas, especias con notas afrutadas y agrias. Dulce malteado al primer sorbo que cede a un leve sabor agridulce. Cuerpo medio pero sabroso y carbonatación moderada. Divertido paladar con toque picante. Largo final afrutado y agradable pomelo en el retrogusto. Equilibrada. Vale la pena!!
330ml bottle. Hornbeer Snifter glass. Amber & foggy. White, close & lasting foam. Thick crown. Deep aromas of crystal malts, herbs, spices as well as fruity & sour notes. Sweet malty at first followed by slight sour/sweet flavor. Medium but flavorful body. Moderate carbonation. Funny & spicy palate. Long fruity finish & kind grapefruit on the aftertaste. Well balanced. Worth to try!!

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap sample @ Haand Festival 2013. Light hazy straw yellow body, small white head. Aroma is mild grainy tones, hints of pale malts and grass. Faint. Taste is mild peppery saison tones, grains and hints of white sugar. Medium body and carbonation. The house yeast of Alvinne overpowers whatever IPA characteristics this beer may have been intended to have, but otherwise it’s a half-decent beer.

Bottle @ home shared with Dutchdrebus. Wow big suprise, another gusher by Alvinne. Clear orange golden color with slightly some floaties in it, huge white head. Smell malts, boring herbal hops, herbs. Taste malts, boring herbal hops, herbs, yeast, medium herbal bitterness. Probably thoroughly hopped but with boring, totally missing fruityness, herbal hops. Not really enjoyable at all imo.

Bottle @ benzai. Gusher (who would’ve guessed...). Hazy orange colour with a huge white head. Smells herbs, floral, hops, soapy, blossom. Tastes Belgian yeast, speculaas, cinnamon, herbs. Don’t call this stuff an IPA. Medium body, quite a lot of carbo.
