Alvinne Mad Tom Session IPA
Bottle. Pours a clear golden beer with a big, typical Alvinne style, white head on top. Aroma is yeasty with a hint of grapefruit and piney resins. Flavor is quite bitter and messy, highly carbonated and no real hop characteristics are shown here, just a bland bitterness. Aftertaste is medium long, yeasty and a bit boring. Not too impressed by this..

Alvinne Wild West Kriek Framboos
In Aroma lichte kriek, rood fruit en zuur. De smaak is sour as hell. Niet echt verfijnd bier, maar een leuk zuuraanval op de smaakpapillen.

Alvinne Cuvée Sofie (Bourgogne/Bordeaux B.A.)
Flaska från Etre Gourmete. Rejält disig orangebrun vätska med lågt skum. Syrlig men ocksåå söt fruktig doft med mycket fat och laktosyrlig karaktär. Mjuk sötma som balanserar sötman och tanninerna riktigt bra, fruktig men svår att sätta fingret på vilken men lite aprikos- och plommonbalsamvinäger, men också physalis, gula körsbär och gula krusbär. Riktigt gott.

Boozy. Sweet/Sour. Fruity (peach? Orange? Tangerine?). Super hazy light orange-amber. Lots of stuff in it. Thin bubbly white head that fades quickly leaving a few bubbles around the edges. Tart then sweet then sour then boozy. There’s a lot going on here. I’m digging it. There’s some sour hard candy feel in there. Peach and tangerine too. Maybe some lemon. Really good.

Alvinne Barley King - Spanish Red Wine (AO) B.A.
Bttle from bierhalle dekoninck. Pours unclear, very dark amberorange. Small white head. Smell is rich on wood, some red wine notes trough fruityness, very remote sweetness, hint of bitterness, and some far-away alcohol. Taste is intense. very sharp. So much barrel in this ! withoud being truly overkill, though. buttery barrel notes ( no dyacethyl ) , hint of bitterness, nearly no sweetness to BW standards. The wine aspect is ( as well as the oak )) extremely present, perhaps a bit overpowering. Like I said, no overkill, but more than what i’d say is balanced. MF is OK, but for a BW of 12, I expect more than ’OK’. Carbonation is low - as it should be. Overall, another well-made alvinne beer. But whilst they have risen to the absolute world top for most of their sours, the rest is still a bit behind. I’d say this is very well made, but not at all what I seek for in a barely wine. Was hoping for something more in the direction of Bommen en granaten ( there is also a red win - Bordeaux version of that, which is my fav BW ever made so far ) Still, a well brewed beer, that many to most will like.

Alvinne Pays d’Erpigny
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.

Alvinne Cuvée Freddy
330mL bottle from International Beer Collector. Pours a brown brew, slight murkiness and temptation - ring of tan foam lets you know the score. Nose is vinous yet malty - cherry, dark toast & burnt sugars, plum, nuts, funky horse & old barrels. And...then we shift up a gear - body is far more immense than expected - very full, carbonation subdued but that’s a good thing at this juncture. Theres a richness at first, then it leads to vinous acidity, and tannin, ending sort of ropey (Pedicoccus?). Flavours are quite tremendous really - old wood, chocolate/cocoa, burnt sugar, roast nuts, black plums, cherry pip, horse in a barn possibly looking to take a dump or roll over not sure, citrus rind (that builds), that sort of herbal/leafy note you get with Brett (?), leather too also almost like saddle, too many horse references, blueberry in a weird way, stinky washed rind cheese. What journey - this is brilliant!

Fles gedeeld met Inoven, Roelzie1986 en Benzai. De geur van wijn en hout komen je tegemoed. Het heeft een wijnsmaak, wat hints van hout en een nasmaak van chili. Het pepertje achteraf is wel een leuke twist.

Alvinne Mano Negra Chili Stout (Bordeaux Barrel)
Bottle @ tasting at TomHendriksen. Thanks for sharing. Brown color with a dark red glare coming through when held into the light, small off-white head that diminishes quickly. Aroma is oak, tannine and red wine. Taste red fruits, oak, tannins, fortunately only a slight chili burn in the finish which is in this case a useful addition. Not that I particularly like it but it does add another level to the beer. Wouldn’t have been able to drink the entire bottle though.
