Bottle at the "Colin and the Vikings tasting, Goteborg". Poured a murky dark brown with a round off white head. The aroma is light sour vinegar, vinous. The flavour is strong sour with a clean smooth vinous vinegar like palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Not a lot of flavours but the ones that there are are very good! rlgk (18850) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 22, 2014

ej (1330) - Hauglandshella, NORWAY - MAR 19, 2014
No head, looks like pouring vegetable oil, with no sound or splashing when pouring. Strange! Aroma is kind of sour-ish earthy, old fallen leafs late in the autumn, boiled vegetables, sour berries, unripe banana, oak, paint, heather. Taste is very acidic sour, sorrel, raw rhubarb, grass, oak, soda powder, hay, paint. Medium bitterness, nice acidity, very thick dense mouthfeel without being oily. Very strange and even more interesting.
Pours a very viscous dark coppery woth no head. Aroma is like forests in the fall, wet leaves and a woody, lightly sour fruityness. Taste is moderate sour. Slick on the palate. Very special these beers from Alvinne.. swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JAN 25, 2014

Fest 2013. Hazy mid-brown body, low beige top. Acidic, light vinegary cherry/red berry aroma. Hint of burnt sugar and wood. Medium full. Dry and slick on the palate. Taste is quite similar to the aroma; Acidic-vinegary fruits, with even more zesty citrus to it. An underlying malt sweetness is noticeable. Fresh acidic fruit ending. Very good.
Dark red/brown colour. Medium carbonation. Strange oily texture. Nice sour taste with hints of vinegar. Some light sweetness. Well balanced, easy drinkable. yngwie (17078) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 31, 2013
On tap at Haand Festival. It pours an uncleaer, light brown body under a finger-thick dark beige head leaving lacings. The aroma has balsamic vinegar, some caramel and funk, lemon juice, prunes and raisins. It’s dry and puckering on the palate, medium to full-bodied, and with a bit too much carbonation. Caramel sweetness in the flavor, some dried fruits too, but it’s the funk and balsamic vinegar that runs the show. Lasting finish. A nice one indeed, and even though it leans towards vinegar I don’t find it too much. 130525
