Alvinne Wild West Sauternes Edition
Piana niska, szybko znika do zera. Barwa złota, klarowna. W aromacie ewidentnie białe wino, jasne winogrona, cytryna, stara beczka... W smaku dość kwaśne, rześkie, lekko cierpkie, tu również białe wino, białe porzeczki, agrest, winogrono, cytryna, ocet jabłkowy, jest też w posmaku jakaś słodycz (może od białego wina, nieco kojarząca się z wanilią, dębiną), jakaś kwiatowość, stare drewno. Wysycenie niskie do średniego, drobniutkie.
Bardzo delikatne, wykwintne w odbiorze piwo, prezentujące wysoki poziom jak każde z serii Wild West...

Alvinne Cuvée de Mortagne Pedro Ximénez
Już aromacie czuję mnóstwo sherry, ciemnych owoców, wiśnie, wanilia i ziemistość - wąchać je można godzinami. Pierwsze co się rzuca na języku to obłędna oleistość, jakie to gęste, jakie wyklejające, mam wrażenie, że piję sherry, słodziudkie, ciemne owoce, rodzynki i śliwki, 16% genialnie ukryte, język tego nie wyczuje, jedynie rozgrzewa w przełyku. Piwo zdecydowanie niedocenione, trzeba być miłośnikiem sherry, żeby w pełni docenić jego klasę, moim zdaniem wyciśnięto z beczki maximum, jest to piwo wybitnie degustacyjne tym samym, myślę, że spokojnie przynajmniej godzina na skończenie butelki. Jeden z najlepszych quadów (?) jakie piłem.

Clear orange, brief tight head. Pleasant woody sourness, sweetish, fruity, but some hint of tinned tomato too. Brashly sour palate, vinegar is dominant. Beer aspects low, acidity high, enjoyment low, value for money terrible. Slight stickiness in the finish.

Cloudy golden color with a white layer on top. Good intensity in the aroma. Medium + body and a soft to average carbonation level. Sourness for sour beer lovers. Probably to much for others, Way to much for my girlfriend. Fresh acidity balances it up. Fruity (pear actually) apples, oak and citric flavor.

No obvious BB date. orange very hazy color, small white head. smells light funk, horseradish, estragon, bit citric, light wood, some light fruit notes. very weird smell, but I quite enjoy it. full body, light carbonation, slick mouthfeel. tastes funk, bit glueish, light horseradish, estragon again, some grass, bit citric. finishes rather dry and lightly sour with notes of estragon, horseradish and some grass notes, some elder flowers come through once it warms up. nice one overall but also rather weird, quite enjoyed the smell. taste is decent, liked it a bit better once it warmed up (elder flowers come through). overall nice one.

Alvinne Cuvée D’Erpigny Sauternes BA
330ml bottle from Vanuxeem. Pours a hazy amber, minimal receding off-white head. Good fruity sauternes influence in the aroma. Quite full-bodied on the palate, smooth with prominent sauternes sweetness coming through the yeast and caramel malt. Some light spice. However, lacks clarity and comes off a little smooth and smudged.

Alvinne Cuvée D’Erpigny Sauternes BA
330ml bottle, no bottling date. Hazy amber with no real head to speak of. Aroma predominantly of apple cider vinegar with some oak and vanilla. The taste is quite minerally, fruity apple and pear, sweet caramel, tart mid palate, boozy. Full bodied, slick, acidic tang, low carbonation. Interesting sour barleywine but too much mineral character to be completely enjoyable.

Keg at MK BG, 08/06/17. Rich claret red with a decent crimson cap that dissipates to a swirl. Nose is stoned fruits, dried cherry skins, tarte berry must. Taste comprises soured berries, damp hay, wood must, aged oak, acidic bite but restrained. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, drying close with a light acidic throat scrape at the curtain call. Decent sour ... moderate complexity .... drinks below the ABV.

Alvinne Cuvée D’Erpigny Pedro Ximenez
Dark amber, muddy, with a thick beige string of foam. Rich oaky vanilla, fermenting stone fruit and apple, vinegary notes, sugared pear, hint of berry mix, mild moldy funk. Didn’t get any alcohol in the smell, but it sure hits in the taste. A punch of homemade fruit spirit, with a mix of orchard fruit and berries, plus a squeeze of tart cherries on top and a dash of balsamic vinegar. A solid born, from the alcohol, but also from the acidity. Some green moldy funk in the finish with some great rustic barrel planks, inducing some rich tannins and some nice vanilla notes. Somewhat boozy, with some harsh lingering vinegar and hints of wine gone bad, but also, damn, that nice oak! Medium body, medium carbonation. These special Alvinne beers always have quite a rich woody character, but this one packs some complexity and also a really nice set of balls. Strong, boozy, but intriguing all the way. Good stuff.

Flaska från Etre Gourmete. Mörkt gyllengul, relativt klar med lågt vitt skum. Syrlig doft med citrus, vita vinbär, funk, fat, laktosyra och syrliga gula russin. Bra balans i syran, inte jättekomplex men ändå med karaktär. Gillar serien som har lite lambikkaraktär men ändå är något annat.

Bouteille 33cl, no BB. Dorée/orange sur léger voile, col crémeux blanc. Arôme au nez finement houblonné plutôt noble, malt pils, froment, pointe encore fruitée en rétro versant sur léger abricot. Palais est super sec, retrouve un signe de Morpheus pas spécialement adapté à restituer un effet saison, fini est râpeux avec une pointe houblonnée fruitée - citronnée. Rondeur de froment. Correcte, sans plus, et encore pourquoi en faire un tribu aux mineurs flamands et pas à tous les autres.

Prawie jak burgundzkie wytrawne czerwone wino. Wyglad bardzo ciemny braz z nielicznymi refleksami krwistej czerwieni. Prawie bez piany, no moze na centymetr, gruboziarnista. Zapach, sliwowicy, wina, w smaku mokre drewno, nieco kwasnej wisni, winogrona cos w stylu shiraz, a wiec przyprawowosc wraz z kwaskiem, doskonale wytrawne winne i beczkowe w smaku, troche ciezkie, mimo ze alkohol perfekcyjnie ukryty. Wspaniale do dziczyzny czy wolowiny zamiast wina. Klasa sama w sobie. Zdecydowanie dla doswiadczonych jest to piwo

Alvinne Cuvée Freddy Batch 2
Hazy copper and light brown coloured body with almost no head at all, perhaps a feather of a thin white head. Aroma of sour funk, dry grass and yeast along with a touch of bread and some small amount of floral notes and a touch of medicinal and a metallic twang near the end. Light-bodied; Strong sour flavour at first with a good dose of flowers and funk noticeable and a little perfumey dry kick showing some light malt as well. Aftertaste shows mostly a sour funky flavour with a touch of light fruits like berries with a grassy and hay-like dry quality and finishing with some lightly sweet flavours and a dose of bread and yeast at the very end, but not much carbonation, which works well in this case. Overall, a very nice and well structured beer with a great sour profile without leading too much and a mellow complexity, complete with a deep dry character near the end. Nice to sample outside of Belgium, especially for the price! I sampled this stubby 33 cL bottle purchased a few hours ago at SuperMarket Liqours in Fort Collins, Colorado on 05-June-2017 for US$4,99 sampled in my hotel room here in Cheyenne, Wyoming on 05-June-2017.
