Pours a light and clear golden colour. Aroma has elements of white wine and flowers. Strange dryness. mike_77 (6661) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - APR 30, 2016
Dark golden colour with quick fading head. Has the typical Alvinne funky yeast aroma and some white wine. Bready, malty, yeasty, sharp fruits. kraddel (8110) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - DEC 10, 2015
Pours clear amber. Good white head, that fades within seconds.. Smell is Sharp, rather SS et, typical alvinne yeast. Taste is funky. Bit ’sweaty’ . alvinne yeast, yes, as well as a decent bitterness. Somthing off though. Still drinkable, but i can only imagine this aint whatbit is supposed to be sebletitje (10080) - Enghien, BELGIUM - FEB 25, 2015
33cl bottle, and ... and surprise, a gusher. lot# 728, BB 07/2016.
Orangée, col fin blanc disparaissant vite.
Arôme au bouquet très Alvinne surtout dans la levure, malt léger, pointe houblonnée fleuri avec un côté champenois - peut être du à cette haute effervescence, rétro épicé.
Palais est légèrement épicé - poivré, malt avec une impression de cardamone et de mousse. Malt pâle et caramel avec une pointe surette sur la fin, venant sans hésiter de la levure. Bierridder_S (929) - BELGIUM - FEB 24, 2015

22/02/2015 @ home - 33cl bottle from Bierhalle Deconinck.
Hazy orange colour with small dissipating head. Aroma is bready, spicy. Taste loads of yeast, spices some sourness. Something didn’t seem right. Maybe infected? Might try the other bottle I have and try a rerate but for now?

UPDATED: JUL 5, 2015 Tripel-like specialty beer commissioned by Pado in Tielt. Cream white head, foggy peach blonde robe. Bready and fruity aroma, apple, strawberry, banana and dried apricot, soft honeyish malt sweetness with a refreshing lemony accent, flowery hoppy finish. This has clearly improved since it was first made ten years ago, it has gained body, complexity and balance, so I will only take the current version into account for this rating. Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - APR 30, 2012
Bottle. Light amber coloured beer with a large white head and some average carbonation. Hoppy aroma with some very light herby and roasted hints. Full palate. Finish is bitter fruity with a longer bitter finish. Medium. oh6gdx (26488) - Vasa, FINLAND - FEB 13, 2011
Bottled (from beerplanet.eu). Hazy orangeish golden colour with a mediumsized white creamy head that leaves some lace. Aroma is fruity, spicy, rathery malty as well as slightly yeasty notes. Flavour is fruity, spicy, a bit yeasty and also has some slight notes of alcohol and also some strange vegetablylike notes. Except for the slight vegetably notes this was a rather pleasant brew. thewolf (12594) - Kolding, DENMARK - DEC 31, 2010
Bottle, bought @ Beer Planet, Brussels.tderoeck (9669) - Gent, BELGIUM - JUL 14, 2010
Pours muddy pale yellow with a firm, frothy, white head. Aroma is heavy white pepper, sweet malts, fair grassiness. Meidum, prickly carbonation, fine light oily mouthfeel. Flavour has light tartness, lots of pepper, light ginger touch. There is some milkiness to the tartness that makes me think that it is not intended. Lots of peppery bitterness at the end though.
bottle @ Bierjutterij festival, Oostende (BE). Pours a cloudy yellow to orange beer, solid white head. Smells very yeasty. A very strong bitter tastes with spices. Some hints of caramel. A very dry bitter and spicy aftertaste as well.
