500 ml bottle from Etre Gourmet, 2016 vintage limited to 400 bottles.
Dark amber-copper, hazy body, with a small, yellowish head.
Aroma of oak, wine, lots of sour berries, vinegar, subtle cheese, slight funk.
Tastes quite similar, but with the berries more defined, blueberries and cherries sticking out a bit.
Medium, slick mouthfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishes sour, medium dry, wooden, vinous, sour fruity, with lots of berries again, some lingering blueberry skin.
Tasty. The nose has a bit too much vinegarish notes for me, while it’s still really complex. Taste starts also pretty acidic, but quickly merges into diverse berry notes. Overall not my favourite Alvinne I’ve had, but still great stuff.
