Foffern (2044) - Bodø, NORWAY - OCT 29, 2013
Bottle at home. The colour is orange and is pretty cloudy with a big and soapy, off-white head. Slightly sour aroma with vinegar, citrus, grapefruit, spices and Belgian yeast. Flavour of grass, hay, grassy hops, harpix and grapefruit. Has a slick mouth feel, and a medium to heavy bitterness. Interesting aroma, and a pretty bitter flavour that makes it a little unbalanced. Powerful beer anyway at 3,8%. esp0r (2934) - NORWAY - OCT 4, 2013

A gusher! Copper to orange hazy, massive white head with big big big big bubbles, a real mess. Smells of funk, malt, cat pee, hops. Light sweet, brett and yeast notes, some soil and mold, quite dry. Medium bitter finish with nice resins. Quite original, but typical for Alvinne :)
Bitter/IPA from the Alvinne brewers. Mild in alcohol, but strong in taste. Mostly bitter and also fruity. Borup (15915) - Albertslund, DENMARK - AUG 29, 2013
Hazy amber colour with a huge lasting head. Aroma and flavour of yeast, hops, citrus, malt and grassy notes.

Bottle from Matkroken Natland, Bergen. Gusher! When it subsides, a large bubble-foamy head has formed over a murky dark orange body. Not the best looks on this one. Nose is straw, sour-ish saison yeast tones, fresh grass and hints of grains. Taste is bitter resinous grass tones, sharp saison yeast and some grainy hints in the back. Super-fizzy carbonation, thin body. Seems almost spoiled, but not quite. Not the best I’ve had from Alvinne, to put it that way. Inbreak (6709) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - JUL 29, 2013

Hazy dark yellow body, white head. Aroma has lots of Belgian yeast, citrus hops, some grains. Flavour is floury and really yeasty. Subtle toffee malt and great balanced bitterness. Not bitter as style but really good beer. Cunningham (8526) - Halden, NORWAY - JUN 15, 2013
