beerbuzzmontreal (3488) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 26, 2008
Murky brown pour with lots of floaties and a very thick, rocky, offwhite head. Very good aroma of yeast, spices and hops. Very good flavor of spices, yeast and hops. The body is light with an oily texture and gentle carbonation. This beer is well balanced and quite pleasant to drink.

Shag (2684) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - MAY 26, 2008
This one poured a copper color. The aroma is malty but also contains a hint of citrus and alcohol. The flavor is rather sweet with some dark fruits, toffee, crystal malts, and syrup of some sort. I taste some limes in this? Well anyway overall it was pretty good.

thewolf (11490) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAY 18, 2008
Bottle, bought @ Tønden, Haslev.
Pours a great orange amber with a big, frothy off-white head. Lovely amount of bubbles reaching hastily for the slowly steadying foam. Aroma is pleasantly malty, lightly roasted, lots of overripe dark fruits. Some caramel and oranges. Medium to low carbonation, very creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is greatly composed - the best Alvinne for me, by far. Very vinious, but never alcoholic. Lots of caramel, yeast, oranges, pear. Some light roastiness and flowery hops balance everything out nicely. Great brew!

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 11, 2008
Pours a slightly hazy copper bronze with a spotty-lacing off-white head. Aroma of lightly sweet caramel malt and a semi-sour, funky nose. Starts lightly sweet and fairly full bodied with a citrusy tartness and some warming acidity toward the finish. Fairly interesting and hides the alcohol pretty well, but could use some more balance.

TBone (14160) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 22, 2008
Bottled
Extremely lively bottle: almost all foam and it was "exploiding" when opened. Hazy amber-orange color, huge cloudy head and lots of lace. Herbal hoppy nose with clear barnyardish notes. Liquerish palate. Of course powerful alcohol is present, but it is not burning as expected for 11 % brew, more like warming in the aftertaste. Flavor has candy sugar, plums and some licorice. Like in aroma, you can also taste countryside here. Sweet edge in the finish. Very potential beer for ageing, already now quite mellow, but may improve over the years.

JimGorePFTN (8) - Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, USA - APR 19, 2008 does not count
A nice representation of the Belgian strong. Lacks the subtle notes of more complex versions, probably due to the 11% ABV gravity. Still very drinkable for such a potent brew. Enjoyable, but not unforgettable. My bottle was over-carbonated, but uncertain whether it was due to shipping disturbance or refermentation in the bottle. The cap came off like a pistol shot and the pour produced a 3/4-glass head that dissipated very slowly.

Bottle PP Belgian Fest 08. Pours murky orange with a tan head. Nose is sweet. Taste is sweet with a slight spicyness. Pretty good.

Little hazy goldblond beer. Herby, sweet and fruity aroma. Finish is little bitter and spicy.
