LarsEngen (367) - Sandvika, - APR 25, 2013
33 cl bottle from Vinmonopolet Vika. Pours extremly murky rotten apple brown with a small offwhite head that leaves a lacing. Fruity aroma of strawberry with some alcohol notes. Flavor is fresh hoppy that quickly turns to strong bitterness, and a long dry woody finish. Strange to be a belgian strong ale, but a cool complex version

tricksta_p (3526) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - SEP 22, 2016
Bottle at home. Takes a while to pour because of the huge foam. Aroma is pale malt, funky yeast, brett, fruits, fruit peel, citrus, hoppy notes. Flavour is light to moderate sweet, slightly tart and medium bitter. Body is medium with pretty lively carbonation. Curious beer, hoppy and bretty, I quite like this.

Not quite sure what Alvinne was brewing here. Aroma was weak and was not indicative of the beer, the taste of the hops and the beer did not meld.

Lore (2168) - Budapest, HUNGARY - AUG 26, 2016
incredibly hazy golden colour, moderate sized white head; aroma of orange zest, apricot, boiled celery, overripe tropical fruits, and toffee notes; taste is the same; strange...anyway, I really like it

ALIBALI (684) - Kiel, GERMANY - JUL 23, 2016
Meine 0,33l Bauarbeiterbuddel aus dem BEYOND BEER in Hamburg ist leider beim Öffnen fast explodiert. Daher hat ich nur 100ml zum probieren 😭 . Sehr kräftiges nach Leder riechendes und extem verhopftes Strong Ale. Sehr bitter, aber auch interessant holzwürziges. So würde ich mir ein Traditionel Ale vorstellen. 2,79€.

seynie (353) - Tienen, BELGIUM - JUL 17, 2016
Orange with good carbonation but head disappears. Citrus fruit and dry wood in the nose. Earth, spruce, lemon zest, wood. More sour bitterness in the long finish. Interesting but the bitterness is too dominant and hinders some aromas

Maakun (3919) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUN 10, 2016
Bottle at home. Bit of a gusher in classic Alvinne style. Deep golden with some little particles drifting around. Some funk, sweet malts and toffee, hay, lots of fruit skins, grapefruit, marmalade. Really massive bitter herbal and grassy hops. Over medium sweet, light sour and very bitter with a long lasting puckering bitter finish. Over medium bodied with soft oily feel. It’s interesting, but the bitter finish is a bit over the top. There’s a huge contrast between that and the nice aromas.
