Laatste bier gedronken op Borefts 2016. Amber/donkerblond kleurig, vrij troebel bier, met een kleine witte schuimkraag. Het aroma is fruitig, licht zurig vineus. Witte wijn, eikenhout, fruitige accenten van gedroogde perziken en abrikozen, een licht accent van honing. Het smaakpallet is zoet, lichtzurig, met veel witte dessert wijn kenmerken. Wederom smaken van witte wijn/witte druiven, honing, karamelmout en gedroogde abrikozen. Vol mondgevoel/smaakpallet, de alcohol is goed waarneembaar, verwarmend in de afdronk. Een prima BA bier van Alvinne, waarin de Sauternes dessert wijn mooi tot uiting komt.

Pours amber with almost no head. Aroma is vinous, caramel, wood, acidic and fruity. Flavour is medium to heavy sweet, vinous, wood, acidic and fruity.

minutemat (5800) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2017
330ml bottle from Vanuxeem. Pours a hazy amber, minimal receding off-white head. Good fruity sauternes influence in the aroma. Quite full-bodied on the palate, smooth with prominent sauternes sweetness coming through the yeast and caramel malt. Some light spice. However, lacks clarity and comes off a little smooth and smudged.

Shark_Pants (763) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 12, 2017
330ml bottle, no bottling date. Hazy amber with no real head to speak of. Aroma predominantly of apple cider vinegar with some oak and vanilla. The taste is quite minerally, fruity apple and pear, sweet caramel, tart mid palate, boozy. Full bodied, slick, acidic tang, low carbonation. Interesting sour barleywine but too much mineral character to be completely enjoyable.

Pours an amber body with a very thin head. Sugary aroma with wooden tones. Taste is subtle sourness and barrel tones. A bit of balance but interesting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

January 2017 - Bottle share at One Canada Square. Thanks Matteo! As ’Alvinne Cuvée d’Erpigny Sauternes BA’. Dark amber orange, hazy, foamy beige head. Aroma has white vinegar and gooseberry, faint chemical. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste has lots of booze up front, varnish and vinegar, astringent notes, spice. I mean this is harsh every way you look at it. Alvinne’s beers are either very impressive or too harsh, and unfortunately this one falls in the latter category. (2.7)

04/02/2017 - draught small glass @ Gainsbar, Kortrijk. Cloudy orange with small white lacing. Nose is rip fruits, bit yeast, sweetness. Taste is lots of ripe fruit (apricot), sweetness, bit boozy, some sourness, dry. Nice beer but I seem to like the Mortagne series more.

Marduk (8068) - Reval, ESTONIA - JAN 27, 2017
330ml bottle (thanks martjoobolut). Murky amber color. Small size, white head, stays. Plastic, yeasty, white wine, berries in aroma. Yarrow, herbal, yeasty, dirty in taste. Yarrow in aftertaste. Fuckin messy stuff. Nope. Boozy too. Still nope.
