BartC (727) - Lichtaart, BELGIUM - DEC 12, 2011
Dark (black) colored beer with a creamy brown head. Low on carbonation which was till now a rare property of Alvinne beers. Dominating raisins and other dark fruits in the aroma. Notes of caramel, wood and other fruit like banana. Nice sourness in the taste. Very surprising and refreshing. Finally a low alcohol beer with a massive taste! Excellent.

77ships (8211) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 24, 2013
33 cl. bottle @ home. BBF 09/2014. Procured from Willems. Put it in the fridge before opening, virtually no gushing,… success. Very dark brown, beige head is big bubbles, quickly vanishing to nothing. Light kiwi in the nose, light powdery chocolate, flowers, nicely hoppy, lovely bitterness, light berry, sweet malts, cacao, some chocolate,… Taste is bitter kiwi, white grapes, lightly floral, lightly ashy chocolate, cheap cacao powder, light spices and kiwi, hoppy bitter finish, small hints of sourness,… Very effervescent,… Nice dark version of the regular one. Could use less carb. Although might be quite watery then, not sure,…. This is not quite there and big jumbled but enjoyable never the less with positive sides.

sebletitje (9348) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUL 14, 2011
bottle @ Alvinne, thanks Glenn. Une version plus maltée de la Freaky qui avec les notes de levure Morpheus donne à la bière un caractère qui la rapproche d’un style tel que une version plus légère d’une Duchesse de Bourgogne. Des notes de fruits rouges laissent une aigreur agréable qui n’est autre que l’effet de la levure. Houblons rajoutent une touche d’amertume et de citron avec le Hallertau qui donne un peu de ce côté épicé et fruité parfait pour ce type de bière au volume d’alcool faible. Sympa, agréable et facile à boire.

shoulderbroken (3831) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 28, 2011
Very black with small beige head. Funky aroma, malty bit of ovaltine and doughy. Pricly taste, slight bitterness bit herbal. Medium bodied with a bitter finish and a sherberty fizz. Really interesting taste and surprisingly flavoursome for such a low alcohol beer. Nice!

Saboreada el 04/05/11. Brota con color ambar muy oscuro hacia mi copa Tulipa. La corona parece color café con leche. Capa gruesa de espuma, cerrada y túpida, bastante buena persistencia. Fugaz anillo de encaje. Aromas de hierba fresca, especias, pino y resina. Sabor a maltas tostadas, lúpulos oleosos y compleja sensación herbal con sutiles notas de café. Moras y matices de café redondean un ácido retrogusto. Sorprendente cuerpo para una cerveza de baja graduación. Carbonatación correcta. Refrescante trago.Enjoyed on 05/04/11. Pours very dark amber color into my Tulip glass. Crown looks like milk & cofffe in color. Foamy thick layer, close & dense, fairly well lasting. Brief lacing ring. Fresh grass aroma, spices, pine & resin too. Toasted malt, grassy hop & complex herbal flavor with subtle coffee notes. Dark berries & coffee hints round a sour aftertaste. Surprising body for a low ABV beer. Average carbonation. Refreshing drinkability.

Bottle. Deep dark brown color. Roast, licorice and citrus in the aroma. Thin, lemony yeasty tart flavor. Hints of ash. Surprisingly refreshing.
