gEUS (1302) - Linden, - NOV 14, 2012
750 ml bottle - pours deep amber with a red hue, no head. Aroma reveals the sour character of this beer; citrus, cherries, added with a tad of oak. Body is light and one-sided on the sourness; not balanced by a round mouthfeel or sweetness one can find with a good gueuze or a for example a Supplication. Taste is cherries and tart forest fruits all over. A pity it only goes to the sour side.

ElManana (649) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - FEB 19, 2015
Bottle at RBWG, thanks to beerlover_ben! Red, no head. Very fruity, cherries, some flowers, winy. Nice beer, these new Alvinne’s are really one giant leap forward.

77ships (4551) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - FEB 15, 2015
Thanks to Beerlover_Ben! 500 ml. bottle sampled @ RBBWG IV. Dark red, zero head. Nose is huge red fruit, tart, vinous, lightly puckering. Taste is tart cherry, herbal, cherry pits, lightly puckering, oak,quite a bit of wine,… Juice-like body. Pretty nice, very straightforward without complexity, lots & lots of fruit.

Benzai (9351) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - FEB 15, 2015
Bottle @ RBBWG 2015. Hazy red color, virtually no head. Smell and taste sour, oak, cherries, red fruits. Medium body, soft carbonation.

Beerconnaiseur (155) - BELGIUM - FEB 6, 2015
50cl bottle, fresh batch, limited to 400 bottles. Low carbonation, somewhat sirupy mouthfeel and look, brown-red pour, quick vanishing head. Pleasant round nose with wood notes & cherry (nice intertwining of both aromas), malt and boiled wort, passion fruit, lychee, some candi and even caramel in the far background. Soft citrussy cherry flavour, medium tartness, oily mouthfeel. Lovely to have a higher ABV, hints of the Land vM and cherries altogether. Looking forward aging it and tasting it from 2-3 years on.

teddybeer (2418) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAR 8, 2014
Reddish/dark coppery colour with a minimal and quickly diminishing off-white head. Aroma has intense notes if cheeries with wooden hints. Flavor is acidic, sourish, very fruity dominating cherries, wooden, red wine and slightly bittery almond. The final is very sourish with notes of barrel and cherries.

Bamsen78 (3659) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - NOV 22, 2013
Bottle @ Scooper Tasting in Ulfborg. Pours murky Bordeaux rød with quickly vanishing off-white head. Clear, vinous aroma. Ditto taste, drawing tears from one’s eyes. Arbupt, bitter finish. Lingering, vinous aftertaste. A decent kriek, quite unlike the cheap, sweet, commercial stuff.

Bottle 750ml @ fonefan
Pours clear amber with a small off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, vinegar, cherries and hint of acetone. Taste is light sweet and medium sour with a long sour and cherry finish. Body is light, texture is thin to oily, carbonation is soft to flat.

yngwie (14628) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 22, 2013
Bottle, 75cl corked. A more or less clear one, reddish in color and topped by a small, dense, off-white head. Vinous, lightly vinegarish cherry aroma. A bit simple maybe, but nice anyway. The flavor is pretty vinegarish, with quite a lot of cherry and some almond. Dry and pleasantly carbonated. Long finish with cherries and vinegar. Although a bit too one-dimensional, it’s a nice and tasteful one. 131122
