Aroma is dark fruit/vinous, dry malts and sour/tartness. The flavor is fruit, malts, relatively thin body and a very tart/mildly sugary finish.

UPDATED: OCT 25, 2014 Bottle. Clear dark brown with thin off white head. Vaguely plasticy and a bit smokey. Ok.

Bought at Liquor Shed. No foam in the pour, its an opaque brownish red colour. Big sour nose of vinegar, dark fruits, cherries. Im diving in. Deliciously sour with everything Ive already mentioned. I yearn for another sip. Despite the lack of foam, theres a nice level of carbonation. Simply excellent!

Het slechtste bier dat ik van Alvinne geprobeerd heb, echt een tegenvaller van formaat

One of the countless experiments from this brewery of permanent experimentation (hard to follow, if you ask me). Apparently not hopped, a feature of extreme rarity, at least in modern-day beer culture; the fact, however, that Alvinne seems to be trying to brew some fantasy historical ale here, can account for this, as hops were generalised in Flanders only in the 14th century. Foam virtually non-existent, some bubbles, but disappearing as quickly as they came during pouring; colour a hazy bronze. Aroma outrageously fruity (apricot, sour berries, cherry, green apple), malty with what appears to be a smoked accent, balsamic vinegar, bitter chocolate, sour cream, gentle spices; taste equally fruity with a nutty and at times somewhat woody maltiness, desiccating sourishness leading to a long, dry finish. Didnt know what to think of this beer, and although I am inclined to welcome anything out of the ordinary for the sake of experiment alone, they didnt succeed in balancing a sour beer reminiscent of oud bruin without the hops, in my view. Sorry Glenn!

Palme (4541) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 17, 2014
0.33l bottle shared with The Tasting Crew. This is a deep dark brown one with a small big bubbly kinda brown sidesticking and islandy top. Not to extreme on the aroma but I get a spicy burned nutmeg thing here and a trace of something almost grassy sour. The aroma opens up after a while in the glass and I get tones of licorice and dark malts. Really sharp acidic lime sourness in the taste. It has a soft carbonation level and a light oily mouthfeel. Sour red dark currants, dark malts, some red wine vinegar and its leaving a quite dry tongue. Fair stuff. 08.06.2013

Flaske 0,33l p Vertshuset Skarven 29 Mai 14. Ekstremt dyp rdbrun. Lavt skum langs glasset. Syrlig fruktaroma. Smaken sammensatt av ulik frukt. Stikkelsbr. Beholder det syrlige preget og avslutter litt trt. Ekstremt mye bunnfall.
