jackl (6421) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 12, 2012
Tap @ Borefts 2012. The pour’s light hazy gold with a small head. The nose is brett, some lemon and vegetables. The taste is herbs, banana, green pepper and a splash of belgian yeast. Medium body, a bit awkward.

SinH4 (1605) - Garching, GERMANY - FEB 11, 2016
Hazy dark orange color with tan white head. Aroma is lots of floral and citrus hops, bread, spicy yeasts, a bit dusty. Taste is the same, very bready, dry bitter finish. 8% not noticeable. The bitterness feels a bit medicinal. Rather high carbonation. Quite extreme. Both aroma and flavours have a touch or Orval character, but drift off in a completely different direction.

Hopverdju (211) - BELGIUM - FEB 3, 2016
Van ‘t vat. Oranjekleurig bier met dunne witte schuimkraag. Geur: bitterig, kaneel. Smaak: Bitter – zoetig – zurig met een vreemd vuil aards randje, wel leuk, doet me denken aan een Ierse whiskey. Bitterig – zurige afdronk.

Svesse (7510) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JAN 7, 2016
(Bottle, Nuetnigenough, Brussels, 17 Oct 2015) Golden colour with frothy, white head. Fair amount of yeast sediment in the bottle. Malty, hoppy nose with notes of white bread, grassy hops and some yeast. Malty, hoppy taste with bread, grass, citrus, a touch of yeast and a generous grassy bitterness in the finish. More than medium body, with a touch of sweetness. Tasty, with a generous grassy hop character. Nice one.

vipinvelp (3319) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - DEC 31, 2015
Bottle @ Rootz. Light orange (although quite dark in Rootz), no foam at all. High hoppy aroma and very bitter (118 IBU). Not that great in taste. (The Hague 201512)

Hanoi (711) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2015
Bottl. Nose is funky, yeast, perfume, strawberry, hint of grape, hops, dust, hint of tobacco leaf. Taste is hops, peach, funk, hint of summer fruits, leading to a herbal, meidicinal, pine and funky finish. Hints of citrus with lots of lime in the body, grapefruit emerging. Complex and interesting, but as with all the Alvinne, beers I’ve tried, they are all interesting, but I never love them,

veceo (994) - CROATIA - DEC 26, 2015
Cloudy orange color, huge white head, coffee like creaminess and simply refuses to go away. Aroma is fruity, winey, obviously wild. Nothing special. Taste is really tarty, winey, some fruitiness. Not that interesting really. That wild yeast is kinda overpowering and not in a good way.

Bottle 0,33l at Beer Club in Pula, Cro. Orange cloudy liquid with gigantic head. Aromatic, wine smell. Medium to heavy body and carbonation. Heavy bitterness but not hard to drink. Grapefruit bitterness. Well balanced with some sweetness. Peachy taste. Nice and rich.

monk191 (1549) - California, USA - DEC 16, 2015
Pours a beautiful gold red with lacy white head. Smell is malty without much else. Taste starts a bit empty with a malty finish and some honey throughout. A bit boring to taste, but beautiful to look at.

scirtes (296) - POLAND - DEC 13, 2015
0.33 bottle. Pours golden, hazy, quite unpleasant sediments, with large, white, creamy head with good retention. Aromas; herbs, grass, malts, cookies, a bit fruity, with phenolic, spicy notes. Taste is moderately sweet with high bitterness and hints of alcohol. Highly carbonated. I often noticed slight gushing at opening of Alvinne’s beers.

From Uvinum. In Teku glass. After dinner. Not as bad as its sister beer Balthazar. Its a bit stinky but its taste isnt too bad.
