Bottle from City Beer in S.F., CA. Pours darkly garnet with essentially no head. Aroma is smooth, sour, woody, plum. Med body or so. Flavor is astringent, woody, red berry. And Damson. Finishes pretty much like flavor. Excellent.

marcus (7558) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 25, 2013
Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours dark brown with a rapidly disappearing tan head and a delicious sour vanilla and plum aroma. There is a sour dark and red fruit flavor with a vinegar finish. Typical Alvinne, although the bottle did not overflow when opened.

esp0r (2370) - NORWAY - JAN 21, 2013
Bottle from Vika enjoyed at home
Pours dark brown with a small head that falls down to nothing really fast. Smells of roasted malts, liquorice, some funk and caramel. Moderate sweet, then heavy sour, some dark fruits, cherries, but mostly a wall of sour. This ends up a bit one dimentional maybe; feels a bit like it’s unfinished and needs some barrell aging.

hopdog (9829) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 25, 2013
33cl bottle. Poured a brown color with a small sized off white head. Aromas of vinegar, some funkiness, cherries, wood, and some earth. Tastes of vinegar, dark fruity, tart cherries, and some earthiness. Nice medium tart finish.

SPDickerman (1057) - Texas, USA - JAN 2, 2013
Pours dark mahogany brown with a super fizzy light brown head. Smells a tiny bit malty and a little bit sour. Taste is basically straight sour. Light-bodied with a slightly astringent texture and lively mouth-carbonation, Alvinne Undressed finishes with a light sour kick.

larsga (6684) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 30, 2012
Small beige head. Hazy deep dark red body with light carbonation. Earthy wild berry aroma with fruity oily notes. Dry-acidic wooden wild berry taste with cranberry notes. Thin body. Sharpish, astringent mouthfeel. Dry-acidic wooden earthy wild berry aftertaste with metallic notes. Not really very nice. (0.5l bottle, wine monopoly, Vika, Oslo.)

espenra (926) - Kurland, NORWAY - DEC 14, 2012
75cl bottle at Håndverkerstuene. No Batch or date info. Very dark red, and bordering on brown colour with no head. Aroma is a tad sour and vinous. Notes of red berries and some wet wood. Flavour is very acidious with massive notes of citrus. Lots of red berries. Some oak. Short aftertaste.

visionthing (3615) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 12, 2012
33cl bottle from Vinmonopolet, Vika. Pours dark brown with a fast fading beige head. Berrylike aroma, sour berries reminds me a bit of lingonberries, red currant or cranberries. Sweet, lightly roasted malt follows with some hints of caramel and coffee. Nice and sour with flavour of sour red berries, red wine and hints of balsamic vinegar. A nice surprise, a really nice sour beer - surprisingly fruity (or the berry equivalent) and very refreshing. Quite interesting and very enjoyable!

Dfonorow (1721) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 8, 2012
Pour is light brown/caramel with a thin head that fades almost instantly. Aroma is of chocolate and sour cherries with some slight vinegar in the background. Flavor is interesting, much more mild than I would have thought from the aroma - notes of caramel and sour funk.

MoritzF (8726) - GERMANY - JAN 31, 2013
(bottle, 33cl) Hazy, mahogany colour with a beige mid-sized foamy head. Vinegary and woody aroma with fruity notes of red berries and morello cherries, accompanied by mildly toasted malt and a tinge of cacao. Moderately sour flavour, medium to light bodied with a smooth carbonation. Dark malt-character upfront with notes of caramel, dark chocolate, combined with pronounced acidic fruity flavours; dry and vinegary finish with notes of toasted malt and berry fruits. Enjoyable Sour Ale. 11.I.13
