daveshawley (27) - Doylestown, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 16, 2010
Slightly chilled 33cl bottle into a tumbler. It had a lot of carbonation, pours as lively as a Duvel but settles down quickly. A nice two finger beige head sitting on top of an almost black body. The head calms down to a thin head with a nice smattering of dark yeasties on top. After it sits for a little bit the unfiltered nature is apparent as the sediment settles to the bottom. Aroma is interesting... sour cherry, woody, and breadlike. Nothing is overwhelming but it is really interesting. Taste has a nice cherry sour to it from the start to the finish. Sometimes there is a little sweetness or smokiness in the middle. The malt is noticeable for a brief moment as well. The finish is a smoky bitterness that lingers for a little while. This is surprisingly light bodied for 9% ABV and a strong belgium ale. The mouthfeel is lively, not quite fizzing and creamy. Most of the cream comes from the strong layer of foam on top. Overall, Ill probably pick this up again if I see it anywhere.

An absolute gusher! After that, pours hazy deep amber with a foamy beige head. The aroma contains malts, yeast, caramel, citrus and spices. It tastes medium sweet, medium sour and light bitter. Lingering sour finish. Oily texture and fizzy carbonation.

330 ml. bottle sampled. BBF BBF 08/2016. GUSHER HUGE GUSHER. Now my floor & table are all sticky and dirty! Yeah Alvinne enough has been said. Dark to murky brownish, head collapses almost instantly but not before it spills over everywhere,. Nose is sour red fruits, vinous, sour oak, faint vinegar, Oud Bruin-like, sour red fruits & soda. Taste is rotting red fruits & leathery rotting tobacco, malts, not quite sour but dirty & a faintly almost sour, rotting red fruits, watery, caramel, milk chocolate, oak, old wet leaves, compost, rotting wet oak, Watery, hugely messy body. Almost approximating a failed Oud Bruin, a real mess but acceptable if you enjoy the Oud Bruin style. Obv. this is everything but what it was supposed to be.

Bottle at home. APPEARANCE: brown beer, nice stable beige head, but extreme GUSHER... Alvinne made again, happy to hear though they found the problem behind this recurring event, and fixed it. NOSE: caramel, sweet, malts, molasses? TASTE: caramel, sweet, malts. Ok beer

kraddel (7705) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - OCT 27, 2014
Bottle at home Pours dark brown , big white head . Smell is very weird ... Green, but not at all in a hoppy manner, more like... earthy , leaves ,caramel, herbs ... Very complex and just weird . Taste is bit bitter, sweet, chocolate, bit metallic, earthy , caramel , malts, the herbal character is there, but way less than in the scent . Very , very complex beer, with the ideal carbonation . aftertaste is herbal earthy , soft and a tad sweet . No gusher, yet made by alvinne ( appatently different yeast according to the description . it IS possible !

Random pickup from a store in Milan, had no idea what it was. Medium brown, little head. Aroma is quite boozy, with chocolate, molasses, boozy dark fruit rum cake. Taste is pretty nice, very enjoyable sweetness with a slick finish. I thought it was great.

Bire heavy dark brown matured on oak, importe aux States par Twelve percent cela ne simprovise pas!! Mais elle ne fait quand mme que 9 % abv au compteur... mme sil sagit dun rvrend pre (traduction du nom). Par contre elle est ranger parmi les quadruple, et non simplement dans les belgian strong ale comme le fait ratebeer... Couleur brun chtain trs fonc et opaque. Mousse beige trs paisse, avec des petits cratres en haut, puis crmeuse et stable 8 mm, superbe. Armes de bois de ft, pruneau, vin rouge en chai de maturation. Sublime. 1re bouche soyeuse veloute lentre en matire exceptionnelle, vineuse (dans le bon sens des grands crus), boise, complexe avec des fruits noirs, du raisin et une pointe de porto. 2me avec un peu de caf trs distingu sur les nuances vineuses, et une pointe de bois de rose. 3me avec du bois, des fruits noirs, malt, levure. Tout y est. Arrire-bouche pleine, ample, vaste que dis-je, prodigieuse. La longueur nous donne du bois exotique, du grand vin, du ft de chai de suprieure maison Exceptionnelle longueur avec un charme inou ( ne pas confondre avec inuit). La levure est riche, intense, aux mille nuances. Superbe veine. Lalcool rpond son attente, il fait un admirable travail, avec une progression lente et infinie. La finale donne des nuances dune finesse divine, comme les grandes tapisseries du Moyen-ge. CONCLUSION: suprme nectar qui anoblit la bire pour la porter aux confins des grands vignobles. Aprs ce genre de bire, vous ne devez jamais vous abaisser devant un dgustateur de vin. Egalit totale entre les deux breuvages. Exceptionnelle complexit de cette quadruple. Honneur soit accord ce rvrend pre!!!
