2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Stark “belgisk” doft, lite syrlig med tydlig apelsinton.
Smaken innehåller mycket kola, är lite halv-fruktig men känns mest avslagen. Vätskan är tunn och jag blev inte jätteförtjust

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
1/27/2011: Alvinne The Oak Melchior (Ale brewed with
mustard seeds and aged in oak [Calvados] barrels)... Aroma: Crisp,
tart, alcoholic; funky and herbal with just a tinge of sweetness.
Appearance: Murky deep gold color; thin off-white ring of foam around
the edges. Flavor: Sweet, pale malts in the front with fruity
undertones; lots of alcohol through the nose; dry, oaky and herbal
from the middle through the finish; unfortunately, I can’t pick out
the mustard seed... Palate: Medium-full, not really smooth - PASTY
is a good way to describe it, but not bad; slightly sticky on the
lips. Overall: Pretty good, but I would have liked to have the mustard seed show through to really make this one unique.
1 pint, 9.4 fl. oz. bottle (11% alc./vol.) shared by Tmoney99.
Thanks Tom! Rating #115 for this beer.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Not quite as good as expected. Poured at a good temperature; it was a gusher; with a small, cream-colored head that settled to a thin island and ring, no lace. Color would be a clear, but for the large amount of tiny particulates in suspension, amber. Aroma is yeast, malt, mustard, fruit. Flavor is more bitter then tang, then sweet. Although in the finish it’s sweet and tang that linger. Otherwise, also like nose. Body has some clashes between bitter and tang along with some heavy boozieness.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear, dark amber/honey, bordering on light mahogany color. What started as a big white head quickly collapsed to a thin layer of bubbles. Little bit of lacing left behind. Smells sour, earthy. Like a gueuze. I’m guessing there is some brett in there. Little apple-y sweetness in there. Very much an alcohol presence. After that fades there is a very sweet brandy flavor, mixed with a peppery, cinnamony spiciness. An almost dry mouthfeel that quickly gives way to a sweet mouthfeel. Earthy. None of the sour aroma comes through in the taste, but it might be another gusher given some time.
