Hazy amber with white head. Hoppy, yeasty, fruity nose. Flavour is bitter and spicy. Not that special.

Eructoblaster (3120) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 17, 2012
Bottle - 330ml. Hazy golden body with a decent off-white foamy/creamy head. Fresh hoppy aroma with citrusy and herbal hints. Its malty/hoppy taste carries grainy and coriander notes. Ends with a sharp sour finish.

BeerViking (2692) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 3, 2012
75cl bottle from the brewery, poured a hazy copper-gold with a fine and thin but lasting white head. Malt, spice and a little Seville orange on the nose, reminiscent of some of the Abbey tripels, say. Body is initially warm with sweetish malt, then quickly a dry peppery and lightly spicy takes over, before a dry and slightly quinine-bitter finish.

mstockton (225) - Frankfurt, GERMANY - MAR 1, 2012
Blecch...poured from the bottle and it looked ok with a nice haze and an ok head. Then I sniffed and thought it smelled a little like a cleaning chemical. I was hoping for something hoppy with that nice wheaty/sweetness one comes to expect from the Belgians. But...no, this stuff tastes quite salty for some reason and I really did not like it. Its been a long time since Ive dumped a beer down the sink, but this one came awfully close.

pivnizub (9036) - Bochum, Porř, GERMANY - FEB 3, 2012
Bottle: Pale golden, milky to cloudy, extremely gushing (!!!), pathetic and extremely loose head, yeasty-fruity nose with a solid hoppy base; dryish bitter-sweet flavour, medium bodied; yeasty and hoppy finish with a distinctive tartness in the aftertaste. F**k! What an offense: You pay for 330ml and You drink only 33ml

suprchunk (2345) - Crestview, Florida, USA - JAN 26, 2012
Hazy golden yellow pour. Small white head that falls fast and leaves a tiny bit of lacing behind. Hoppy, malty aroma with hints of citrus. Dry sweet malty flavor with a small bit of hoppiness. Decent beer.

verborghs (8) - BELGIUM - DEC 27, 2011 does not count
Pours gold to gold-orange. Smells like wet hops. Tastes coriander, hops, orange skin. Little bit biter, lots of same orange aftertaste.

Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 14, 2011
In short: A chaotic, yeasty, dusty and strangely rustic amber ale. Meh
How: Bottle 330ml, consumed soon after receiving it through private importation, but probably already almost a year old
The look: Cloudy amber body topped by medium size head that quickly recedes to a persistent small beige head
In long: Nose is very yeasty (dusty yeast), notes of coriander, fruity esters (mainly apricots and bananas) and a strange moderately wild character. Taste is pretty muddy, too much yeast presence, dusty dirty carpet, faint fruity notes, honeyed cereals, random weeds/plants, wet tablecloth, barnyard, herbal hops. Finish is dry but leaves the tongue feeling like Ive just licked a dusty carpet. This beer is quite rustic (almost wild) but not the right way, liking a dirty carpet that spent a year in a barn is not how the wild/rustic character Im looking for. This beer was kind of a mess really and felt like the work of an amateurish brewery. Not offensive, just unfocussed and messy. A disappointment coming from Alvinne. Not a pleasant experience but there was something in the air that made me want to drink a beer, it was oxygen, breathing oxygen makes me want to drink a beer.

oldrtybastrd (3222) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 27, 2011
Pours a light golden amber color. Aromas of citrus/coriander/some hops. I not big a beers with coriander like tastes. Probably a good beer just not my cup of beer. Almost like a Belgian Wit with a bite.
