Alengrin (5438) - BELGIUM - JUL 27, 2017
UPDATED: JUL 29, 2017 Bottle at the brewery after a day of tasting cask beers intended for creating new blends. Cheers to Glenn, the brewer! Strong gusher, foam spouting out of the bottle for a long time after opening; resulted in a very thick, very rocky and pillowy, egg-white, dense head, sitting atop a hazy orangey amberish coloured beer, with fierce champagne-like sparkling throughout. Aroma of melon, strawberry, sweet white wine, soap, overripe nectarines, baker’s yeast, caramel, cognac, bread crust, orange liqueur, honey. Very sweet, peachy and strawberry flavours with light banana interwoven, sourish gooseberry-ish undertone, lots of residual sugars with honeyish effect over a bready, caramelly malt backbone; fizzy carbo (unsurprisingly seen the gushing and fierce visible sparkling), thick mouthfeel made thicker by the sugariness. Lots of yeastiness accentuating the breadiness, spicy phenolic accents, earthy hop bitter accent in the finish with a lot of warming, brandy- and even liqueur-like alcohol. Sweetness sticks a bit in the end. Something must have gone wrong with refermentation here, but still enjoyable as a strong, sweet sipper in a kind of tripel-ish ’Belgian barleywine style’ (think Stille Nacht and the like).

Muggus69 (2531) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - MAR 23, 2017
330mL bottle from International Beer Collector Murky, milky sort of juice orange juice thing, small head. Aroma is quite bready, yeasty, crust, booze, spice, bruised apricot. Big body, sort of gritty & thick, warming. Somewhat sweet - ripe apricots, peach, banana, spice, bread crust, slight earthiness lingers, fair bitterness for style, boozy once again. Bit odd - sort of too big for its own boots, not much else there.

Shark_Pants (757) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 5, 2017
330ml bottle BB Apr 2019. Pours a clear dark amber with nice tight white head. Very muted aromas - a little sweet caramel and a little earthy yeast, but that’s about it. The taste is cloyingly sweet - huge caramel, creaming soda, toast, big alcohol, tangerine and grapefruit. Syrupy mouthfeel, low carbonation, reasonable bitterness. Decent flavours but far too sweet and syrupy. Would’ve been better with higher carbonation and a higher attenuation, which would’ve balanced the sweetness more effectively.

Lore (2775) - Budapest, HUNGARY - FEB 10, 2017
hazy dark orange to amber colour, huge, creamy yellowish head; aroma of peach, floral and earthy and wine notes, as well as Belgian yeast; taste is the same with syrupy notes and intensive alcoholic spiciness; good one

Fin (10621) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2017
Bottle from Dranken Geers, Oostakker, Nr Gent, Belgie consumed at home, Friday 6th January 2017 i Pours mid to dark brown, a touch puddly like in appearance what head there may of been was soon consumed by the murky body. This is the best that I have had from Alvinne for some time, it’s a big solid beast of a beer, very Barley Wine like to me as opposed to a Belgian Strong Ale. Big chewy malty beer, lots of oomph from alcohol, fruity, some toffee, sweet, good beer. A6 A3 T8 P4 Ov14 3.5
