@ Borefts Beer Festival. Aroma is dry and dusty. Taste is bread, too much wood an a tad caramel. The beer is not so well balanced. Palate is dry. Not my favorite Alvinne... I like the Ximenez version much more.

Sour fruity/yeast, also something spicy, a little alcohol/vinous. Very interesting, but not spectacularly good.

UPDATED: SEP 23, 2017 Taster @ Borefts bierfestival, Bodegraven. Cloudy amber, beige creamy head. Funky, dessert wine sweet grapes, vanilla, acidic, alcohol is well hidden; complex, but a tat off balance. Good body, low carbonation.

jerohen (2342) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - SEP 23, 2017
At BBF17, Bodegraven. Deep golden colored, average head. Aroma and flavor are nearly pure Sauternes, quite fruity, alcohol not overly present, mouthfeel not very thick. Nice, although i would have liked some more of the base beer in flavor.

Maakun (6287) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - SEP 23, 2017
Tap at Borefts 2017 day 1. Hazy light brown with beige head. Caramel, figs, red wine, vanilla, bitter herbs, oak, alcohol. Ove rmedium sweet and bitter. Full bodied with some alcohol. It's OK but it's a bit too strong for me.

UPDATED: SEP 28, 2017 Alvinne's renowned Cuvée d'Erpigny barley wine, this time aged on sweet Sauternes wine barrels; at Hedonis Ambachtsfest, thanks kraddel for sharing. Lightly lacing, thinnish, off-white head, almost clear amber-hued warm and deep orange blonde colour. Perfumed, strong bouquet of marmelade, orange zest, sweet white dessert wine indeed, biscuit, vanilla-ish oak, fermenting apple, cognac, ginger, mandarin liqueur, wet wood. Sweet onset, marmelade, candied pineapple and fresh orange flavours, soft carbo, oily, bit viscous yet smooth, vinous mouthfeel, rounded caramelly malt body with bready edges, increasingly soaked in an aromatic vanilla-like oak woodiness, softly drying tannins, a 'deep' earthy hop bitter accent and, eventually, a sweet white wine-like but also brandy-ish alcohol effect, yet nowhere wry or obnoxious. Another beautiful barley wine in this series, rich, vinous, elegantly sweet and boozy.

Sampled at Borefts 2017. Pours a slightly hazy amber, off-white head. Caramel, oak, light vinegar, overripe fruits, raisins. A bit boozy.
