sic1314 (4775) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - JAN 5, 2014
Poured medium golden brown with a small off white head. Aroma of candy sweetness, caramel malt, vinous sourness. Full body, flavour much as the aroma, quite alcoholically sweet, quite acidic.

On tap at Haand Festival. A small, dense, off-white head tops an unclear, amber body. It’s vious and peachy on the nose, with generic fruityness, white sugar and a faint malty touch. The alchol level is barely detectable. It’s sweet in the mouth, the hoppy bitterness trying to bring balance but not succeeding, with lots of fruityness and a vinous, lightly warming alcohol touch. Full-bodied and creamy on the palate, and a lasting finish. Overall, perhaps a tad sweet, but I really like it. Sure enjoyable. 130525

jmgreenuk (7690) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - DEC 18, 2013
Bottle at the Essen OBER Kerstbierfestival 2013. Poured a medium amber with a bubbly round head. The aroma is sour citrus and creamy vanilla caramel. The flavour is medium sour with an acid vinegar citrus grapefruit palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

Bottle sample at Essen Kerstbierfestival. Hazy golden brown pour with a ring tan head. Aroma is funky, horse blanket, tart fruits. Flavour is moderate sweet and light bitter. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

txspartan (1022) - Berchem, BELGIUM - DEC 15, 2013
Sour "wild" aroma. Very strong metallic flavour. Hardly any carbonation. Pretty horrible. Odd that they poured it from a used (hopefully rinsed) orange juice bottle at the Essen Christmas Beer Festival 2013.

Jow (3463) - New York, USA - NOV 3, 2013
Apparently I’ve been a decent husband as of late cuz my wife surprised me with quite a bit of decent surprise beers. This pours ruby orange with huge appealing head. Nose of dried fruits and oak. Tastes of red delicious apples, dried apricot and peach, oaky, red wine residue, caramel, and alcohol. Sweet finish and a palate that coats mouth. Since the temp dropped like 20 degrees this boozy bomber is nice treat.

Koelschtrinker (17349) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - OCT 19, 2013
Leicht malziger Antrunk mit geringer Säure. Für den Alkoholgehalt mild, rund, ausbalanciert aber irgendwie auch langweilig. Säuerlich. OK. 10/10/11/10//10

Benzai (14122) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 31, 2013
Sampled @ RB Danish Summer Gathering 2013 day 2, Ulfborg. Bottle. Hazy dark orange color, huge off-white head. Only get some wine influences in the aroma. Taste also is winey with clearly barrel aging present. Too high carbonated as almost always is the case with Alvinne beers.
