3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
333cl bottle. Pours dark yellow (close to orange), foggy appearance, with medium white frothy head. The aroma is a lot yeasty and lemony, with some sugary notes added. The flavour is a bit similar to a lambic, but one still gets the malts and the bitterness. The yeast definitely dominates. Spicy bubbles. Medium body, good carbonation. Very Belgian and well balanced overall.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
ivory white head, disappears fast without lacing. orange blond. aroma of citrus, curacao. taste is malty, bit of anise and aftertaste is resin, bitter. too much carbonation, medium body and slight hot mouthfeel. a gusher .. again, as with almost all alvinnes i’ve tried. adding the yeast deposit made the taste much more mellow and enjoyable. bottle 33 cl / bbf 1-2014

Weird beer. It’s yeasty, grassy, bitter and has notes of citrus, white grapes and come caramel. Quite good.

Bottle at La Fiere Margriete. Deep gold color with a huge, fine head. Cloudy with some floaties. Tangy, funky nose, citrus, peach, a touch of vinegar. Tart, lightly funky flavor. Metallic. Grapefruit. Quite bitter finish with the same funk. Good stuff.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Very moderate beer. Starts with a gusher, an overkill of yeast in the bottle. Aroma is soury and bready, seems the Morpheus yeast has some quite distinctive characteristics (noticed the same character in other Alvinne beers), taste soury sweet with a bitter soury finish. Palate is a bit effervescent. Wouldn’t drink it again soon.

Batch 576 1-14. Gusher. 50% on floor and down sink. Aroma is yeasty, bready. Flavour is similar. Raw, unrefined, prickly. A big disappointment. Bad batch I hope. Will maybe try again.
