harrisoni (18052) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2009
75cl bottle from the Alvinne brewery shop. Orangey red colour with thin lasting off white head. Flemish red sour ale aroma. which is remarkably attractive. A touch of the wine, but almost sour cherry like. Touch of wood on the aroma too. Thats one good smelling beer. A little sweeter than a full on sour, which I guess comes from the wine. Certainly this beautiful wild cherry/red wine aroma/flavour comes through. It really is very good indeed. Just the right level of wild yeast character gives it a biting sourness on the finish, but wonderfully balanced by some very juicy light red fruits. Ridiculously drinkable. Good condition in mouth, the right level of carbonation, a little soft, not harsh, but enough to tingle the tongue. As a vinous Flemish sour, it really is remarkably good.

TBone (17085) - Pori, FINLAND - OCT 8, 2010
Bottled 750ml (Beer Planet, BB 06/2015)
Dark nut brown, reddish color, no head. Sour nose with strong aroma of red wine. Light to medium bodied. Easier than the most Alvinne barrel cask brews: red wineous tannines, sourness - but not too much of bretta, some oak and cellar. Grapes are evident in this beer. Quite balanced "red wine beer".

yngwie (16889) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 23, 2009
Bottle, 75cl, courtesy of yespr. A hazy, orange gusher giving a white head. Slightly oaked nose with vanilla and brett notes. Citrus too. The flavor is acidic, with pale malts and brett, fruityness and a vinous touch. Effervescent and quite dry in the mouth. Some alcohol when disappearing down the throat. Not so very good initially, but gets better as you drink it. 090822

brokensail (16393) - Dublin, California, USA - SEP 12, 2011
A: The beer pours a murky reddish amber color with a very small off-white head. S: You can definitely smell the grapes on this one. There are also some light raspberry notes to it. A decent amount of wood as well as some lemon juice and zest. Overall, sort of a simple aroma. T: A light oak flavor along with some decent tartness, mostly in the form of lemon. A fair amount of grape flavor as well as just a mild vinegar sourness. A little sweetness of grape juice on the back end. M: Medium in body with low to medium carbonation. O: This was just an okay beer. It didnt offend in anyway, but I wouldnt order it again.

75cl bottle @ De Molen Shop. Pours a dark hazy amber/reddish with a full creamy egg white head and lacings. Nose is vinous. Red wine, oak and fruits. Smooth palate. Slight tart and dry end. Nice

FatPhil (15575) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 3, 2012
750ml bottle (Alvinne Webshop) - shared with Marduk - thanks!
Lovely fruity winey aroma on pouring. Raisiny, but in the glass a classic woody oud broun sour aroma. Crisp body, pleasant oaky buin taste. Raisiny, some other fruits too, aromatic and uplifting too. With yeast, you get quite a burnt taste too, and some butter. Much better poured clear without the yeast. Very complex, sourness at a nice mellow level. Clearlyactually sour, ans well attenuated, so theres little more than (of?) the fruity sugars remaining. Finish has gentle butteriness, and winey raisins. Lots in here for sour lovers and sour skeptics too.

MiP (15454) - Snderborg, DENMARK - MAR 15, 2009
UPDATED: AUG 22, 2009 Bottle, 5.5%. The aroma starts off weakly fruity, with some vanilla from the oak. Some citric aroma notes as well, reminding me of Brett. Quite cloudy dark grey brown colour. Very small white head. The flavour starts off citric, very fruity and vinous. Tastes like grape juice, and even more acidic. Nicely refreshing. Some vanilla in the aftertaste, slightly rough bitterness.
