Bottle @ home. Again an incredible gusher from Alvinne (see rating Alvinne Gaspar), beer almost hit the ceiling :S After calming down it’s an unclear hazy yellow, the massive white head is now reduced to a small one. Smell yeast, citrus, malts. Taste malts, citrus and vinegar, aftertaste bitter, but not really a nice bitterness. Although it exploded out of the bottle the beer doesn’t have too much carbonation. Body is medium. Decent beer but why are all Alvinne beers such incredible gushers?

(Courtoisie de rodenbach99) Le liquide a une couleur cuivrée légèrement embrouillée. La mousse est pauvre. Le nez recèle de parfums aigres avec des herbes amères et une certaine base maltée. On dirait bien que des éléments sauvages sont de la partie. Le goût est peu intéressant, un mélange d’aigreur et d’amertume sur les épaules trop chétives des céréales maltées. En bouche, le liquide a un corps léger, une bonne effervescence et une texture toute en finesse. La finale laisse quelques morsures derrière la langue qui sont plus ou moins agréables et certainement insaisissables.

Bouteille de 330ml. Visuel: cuivrée sans mousse, les bulles sont très fines, le premier verre est translucide mais la bière vient rapidement trouble. Olfactif: Le nez est de miel, de fleurs, de brett (probablement la levure Morpheus), il est dure à définir. Gustatif: Il y a certes quelques épices en bouche, une certaine amertume mais le tout ne s’amalgame pas très bien. Résumé: Bière où les levures sauvages sont plus ou moins contrôlées.

Bottle. Golden color. Vinegar, lemon, grassy notes and vanilla in the aroma. Oily grassy hops, vanilla, lemon and hints of vinegar in the flavor. Tasty, this one.

Hazy blond color; big creamy head. Very nice aroma, hoppy and crispy; very light vegetables and soap. Smooth mouthfeel, also because of the carbonation gone with the foam; The malt flavor is very spicy; the attention is suddenly detoured by a very strong ending bitterness. Very good; extremely hopped Abbey Tripel or Belgian Strong Ale.

Hazy blond color; big head. The aroma is citrusy and very crispy, wheat crackers, lightly perfumy. Malt flavor, very spicy (coriander) and with strong bitterness; whatever yeast it was used, this one gives an all-round feeling along with spicy complexity, fuller body than other similar uber-hopped Belgian Ales; quite original in the Belgian panorama.

330ml bottle from IPB.
Appearance : Clear amber with medium white head. Slight gusher.
Aroma : Nice brett with light barnyard notes. Nice malt with light spices and light hops. Humm not sure if it’s brett I’m smelling... Picking up some honey notes as it warms up.
Taste : Light brett with very light sourness/acidity. Malt and hops with light spices. Finish very yeasty with very light tartness.
Palate : Light carbonation. Nice palate.
Overall : Ok what is this now... looks like it’s infected but it’s not bad. Nose is rather nice actually. Taste good but nothing really special. Shooting in all directions. No elegance at all. It’s gets much worse as it warms up.... not good.

Foam is dense & extended with a light lacing. Medium bubbles riding an elevator. Well carbonated. Fruity aroma. Mildy bitterness touched by a light sweetsourness below. Fruity notes of apples. Medium body & refreshing sensation. ABV doesn´t bother at all, kindy flavor. The aftertaste gets back the mildy bitterness now pretty nice sweeted.

33 cl bottle from Bieropholie, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass. SLIGHT GUSH.

App.: Very cloudy deep orange-amber with an orange-light tan head. Aroma: Sour, organic acids, bitter green herbs, quite Saison-like, woody, some fruitiness, some brown sugar and caramel hints (though not sweet), minerals, light funk, I’d have to go with “odd”. Palate: Medium body, loose, sparse effervescence. Flav.: A bit more approachable than the nose, less of the acidity and aggressiveness, more biscuit, honey, brown sugar, quite yeasty, a bit earthy, still hints of the bitter herbs, some woodsiness, a little citrus and honey, slightly floral/perfumed; dry with some bitterness and a reasonably pleasant malty finish with a bit of the bitter greens.

Yeah, not really for me. Nice bitterness though.
