Bottle from Drankenspeciaalzaak Jelle, Leeuwarden. Aroma is lots of oak with sweet caramel malt, red wine, grapes, vinous notes, dried fruits, and some booze. Rather sweet flavour with a mild bitterness. Body is full. Nice oak and vinous grapes, sweet and heavy. Good!

Unclear, orange colored, medium- frothy off white head, nice lacing. Aroma is of some malt, bit caramel, wine barrel, dried fruity, grape, some fruity tartness. Taste is medium sweet malt, grapes, fruity, tart, vinous and some barrel notes, bit dried fruit, moderate- sourness. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, oily. This is a good one.

Barley wine de 12,2 % abv, passé 8 mois en fût de Sauternes. Mon exemplaire était à 2 ans et demi avant sa date. Couleur roux un peu cerise, à la clarté nette. Bulles fines, peu nombreuses, à montée lente. Mousse beige, en fin nappage de surface. Arômes de cognac, vin blanc moelleux, raisins secs, botrytis. 1ère bouche fluide, sur raisins, fût, pointe de kirsch et lambic. Arrière-bouche qui mêle le vin au cognac dans une allégresse folle. 2ème avec cognac sur lambic. Arrière-bouche avec un côté acide sur des raisins secs. 3ème sur un vin moelleux avec une pointe de péket (ce n'est pas top ..). Arrière-bouche vague avec l'alcool en dominante. Longueur très irrégulière, voire un peu informe. Jambes huileuses, longues. Levure morpheus, ligne connue. Alcool bien, il regarde le Sauternes dans sa barrique, et se dit : "ah, c'est beau ça ..", sans penser à son travail !! Finale faible. CONCLUSION : mon avis très humble, c'est que c'est un peu se moquer du Sauternes que de faire ça, c'est aussi se moquer de ses clients .. Ou alors c'est peut-être du Sauternes réservé pour les brusseleirs qui vont tous les jours chez Moeder Lambic !! (7/2/2/1/5)

Roodbruin bier met weinig schuim. Smaak is licht zuur en fruitig met iets van calvados en wijn. Persoonlijk vind ik dit bier iets te zuur voor een Barley Wine. Smaak blijft wel mooi lang hangen.

@ 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 (2410) - 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.
