Thank you for sharing BE & friends RB Crew! Sampled draft @ Borefts 2016. Day 2. Dark brown, amber, tanned creamy head. Nose is mellow syrupy malts with gravy, too big gravy with sugar. Taste is weird gravy, herbal, thick malty, sugar, herbal with low chili, bit too umami. Not optimal but not bad, decent sweetness, malts, bit too umami cough syrup. Body is thick gravy, malt, pleasant chili.

Alvinne Mano Negra Oak Aged Cognac Barrel
Draft @ Borefts 2016. Shared with RB Belgian crew. Brune foncée, col léger beige. Arôme au nez malté, chocolaté, crystal avec petite touche de Cognac offrant de fines notes de raisin et de boisé. Palais est malté, caramel, chocolaté, Cognac apportant la chaleur, chocolaté avec une chaleur de barrique arrivant en fin de bouche. En toute fin, je note encore cette présence habituelle pur Alvinne de Morpheus qui confère une petite aigreur.

Alvinne Pays d’Erpigny
Robe orange foncé à brun "châtain" opaque. Mousse abondante disciplinée, compacte, presque crémeuse, blanc très légèrement cassé. Nez très doux (grain, caramel, fruit très mure) ou perce fort l’alcool. Impression d’éther au nez, vodka léger. Attaque outrageusement sucrée sur une texture très huileuse. Sensation d’un digestif et de sucre (caramel) ajouté. Fruit (beaucoup) trop mûr. Colle aux lèvres. Finale où quelques notes de houblon amérisant percent, mais très très loin d’équilibrer la vague sucrée. Très étonnement peu équilibré et peu maîtrisé. Unidimensionnellement sucrée. Beaucoup de corps, lourd.

Alvinne Wild West Grape Edition 2015
Draft @ Borefts 2016. Shared with RB Belgian crew. Ambrée, col fin blanc. Arôme au nez assez belge tout en gardant cette effluve finement aigre avec un fruité de raisin et de vin restant discret. Palais est axé sur l’aigrelet, typique de cette version Wild West, râpeux avec une pointe de barrique de vin, coté vert frais, reste grinçant sur les dents vu le niveau acidité.

August 2016 - Keg at at GBBF 2016, with the Scopeys, as ’Alvinne Wild West Blackthorn Edition’. Hazy opaque orange with no real head. Aroma is funky, red wine, vinegary, [I had sea buckthorn juice once and it was kinda like this – vinegary]. Body is light with tingly carbonation. Taste is vinegary, lemony, musty, funky goodness. Tastes like a good authentic lambic. I strongly approve of this beer. (4.0)
