Pours cloudy, cidery brown with minimal head. Cider in the aroma too, with more fruit, cinnamon, and alcohol. Taste is sweet with fruit and spice. A little fruit bitterness and some alcohol in the finish. Nice.

Flaske 0,33l spandert av og delt med Rune under ratesammenkomst hos ham 21 Jun 12. Mørk oransje. Veldig uklar. Gjørmete. OK kremaktig skum som fester seg til glasset. God syrlig aroma. Forsiktig søt alkoholsmak med tilløp til syrlig frukt. Tørr syrlig bitter ettersmak.

330ml bottle cellared for more than a year, bought at The Bottle Shop in Brugge May 2011. The body is muddy with an apricot colour. Decent white head leaving spotty lacing behind. Yeasty fruitiness to the nose. Partially pent-up flavour of apricot, dry and sweet, with noticeable alcohol. Quite well bodied. Ok. Shared with Finn at a tasting session in Tromsø, 21.06.2012.

Cloudy brown beer. Semi dry and semi crisp palate. Low carbonation. Tart and a little sour. Orange, lemon sherbet well integrated with rich malt. Finishes with more sour lemon and orange. Refreshing. Hides the abv very well.

Nice, a complexity that needs a second try. I like it but it is to much flavor to describe. I will repeat

Reviewed at the 16th Essen Christmas Beer Fest 2010.
Pours a hazy bronze colour, with an off-white head: this beer was on-tap.
The Hallertau Perle and Hallertau Spalt Select hops don’t give off much aroma and being unfiltered and unpasturised the yeast smell seemed to be the dominant one to me, some mixed herbs and spices also appear in the nose.
Sugar and mustard seeds are added during the brewing process and this made the taste a strange sweet and sour mix that just about complimented each other. The hops gave the finish a dry bitterness even if they added little to the smell.
Alvinne do mess around with their beers at times, this one was fine in my eyes, although I sometimes wish they’d just brew a regular beer and leave it alone (no mustard seeds, oak aged in vomit, etc, etc)

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Extremely strong gusher!!! Lost nearly 90% of the beer. Fucking Shit!!!!
The beer in the glass is brownish-orange, slightly cloudy. Pleasant smell yeasty and sour, of raisins and plums. Starts yeasty-sweet, with lots of raisins and plums, also sugary and alcoholic. The middle part is also yeasty and sugary-sweet, plum and raisin are once again represented in the background. Goes into a sweet and yeasty, alcoholic finish. (Point Loss cause of this extremely gushing attack!!!)

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Amber colored pour. Slim layer of bubbles and a tiny bit of lacing. Smells like a fruity syrup. Sugary and full of perfume. Cloying sweetness. Big alcohol presence. A little thin on the back, which is surprising after the sugary presence up front. This one needs a ton of age on it, then maybe it will be a decent winter warmer. Not as good as the barrel aged versions.
