Mofo gushy bastard! Sort this shit out Alvinne! Murky brown beer, fluffy pale cream colour head. Palate is airy and very slightly viscous. Sweetish malts and spice to start. A winey fruity tangy mid. More dry spice. Candy sweets and light touches of gueuzey wet wood and floralness. Airy dry finish. Certainly tasty if a little muddled.

Draft. Amber pour. A sweet and delicate barley wine, lots of fruit notes like orange and raspberry, slight vinousness and oak.

Draft at Churchkey. Hazy amber color, white head. Nice aroma of fruity toasted caramel. Taste has jammy fruit on biscuits. Very tasty.

On tap at The Birch. Pours a lightly hazed amber with a thin white head. Soft floral notes on the nose, wood and sweet floral grapes. Beautiful. Medium bodied, gentle sweetness, again floral, warm malt and a bit of alcohol. Sweet and warm, toast and caramel toffee candies. Lingering warmth on the finish with a bit of wood and again floral sweet touches, warm chewy yeast. Balanced and lovely.

Bottle shared by beerlover_ben. Pours cloudy dark orange. Rich nose of nuts and raisins, caramel and sherry (due to the evolution). Full body, sticky & sweet mouthfeel, rich flavours of dates, sun-dried grapes and caramel malt. Yummy!

Thnx to Beerlover_ben . Pours unclear blonde, full of flakes ( even without sediment ) . Huge white head . Smell is a bit sweet , but does not give away to much . Taste is mostly sweet , malty , grainy , some oak . Very sharp carbo , as well as a sharp taste . Nice complexity , but the aftertaste fades fast .
Earlier Rating: 4/30/2013 Total Score: 3.3
sampled at alvinne, a few days before they released it at ZBF . smell is sweet, bread, malt, pours brown, no foam very low carbo, buttery, sweet, vanilla a bit. way to sweet in a weird way ( that wine, i guess) for me .

Alengrin (3019) - BELGIUM - SEP 6, 2014
The Monbazillac version in this series of Melchior experiments. Creamy head, deep hazy copper colour like the others; aroma of honey, candi sugar, peach, pepper, sweet white wine, wood, grapes, brandy, complex taste with dried fruits, sweetish, honeyish and yeasty, caramel malt base, long vinous finish with tannins, wine, warming brandy-like alcohol and floral hops. My favorite of these wood-aged Melchiors.

Palme (3605) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 17, 2014
On tap @ Haandfest 2013. This is a cloudy wood golden beer with a medium sized heavy lacing off-white head that sticks around for a while. It smells of ripe zesty citrus fruits, malts and a little little bit of forest. Not bad, just not all that impressive for my nose. It has a way to sweet flavor imo. Feels unbalanced - almost like a cloying Faro. White sugar syrup and wood. Ripe old bananas in the background but that’s not exactly helping. Almond essence also detected in the aftertaste. This was not a favorite. Actually a bit of a letdown as I had heard some good things about this. 25.05.2013

Draft at Torst. Pours amber with an off white head. Yeasty and fruity, peachy almost, with light woody notes, restrained cognac, and a bit of booze. Pretty good.
