Bottle shared at bu11zeye's 10,000th tasting.

The beer pours an orange-yellow color with a white head. The aroma has a light amount of tartness, as well as some leather, Belgian yeast and lemon notes. The flavor is similar. I get a lot of tart lemons, as well as some green apples and cherries. There is also a nice amount of yeast and some lighter, biscuit malt thrown in. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

16.9oz bottle poured into a snifter.

A: Pours a hazy orangish copper with just about no head on top. Only a slight ring around the edges of the glass. Doesnt seem to have much visible carbonation.

S: Right off the bat you get a nice sour aroma with lactic like qualities. The oak seems to add a mellowness to the aroma. Lambic like fruitiness.

T: Real balanced yet highly sour brew. The Morpheus yeast does add a solid dose of lactic acid reminiscent of a lambic. The oak and wine characteristics add depth to the brew with a fruity vanilla blend. Red wine flavors linger in the aftertaste. Adding in the yeast toward the end yields a much more earthy flavor.

M: Medium body with just about zero carbonation. This is one dry brew with the sour aspect puckering you up as well.

Overall this is a solid sour that really shows what yeast can do for a beer. Something any sour fan needs to try.

2.7/5  rDev -31.5%

500 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Pours a deep orange, amber body. Strangely and disturbingly viscous. Floating bits float about in it.

Smell - Apple-y fruitiness. Caramel malt. Mild acidity. Some oak.

Taste - Much more sour, but still apple flavored. Sour green apple flavor. Oak. Caramel malt.

Mouthfeel - Slick, mucousy, very viscous. Truly odd and unpleasant.

Overall - Objectively, the flavor isn't that bad, but I have difficulty separating the flavor from the incredibly bad texture.

On tap at Borfets 2012.

As stated below this is not a Gueuze but a soured wild ale. No spontanious fermetation here.

Not the best Alvine beer by anymeans.

A: The beer is hazy amber yellow in color and has a very slight amount of visible carbonation. A hard pour resulted in a finger high white head that completely vanished in under 30 seconds and then looked like apple cider.
S: Faint aromas of yeast and red wine are present in the nose. The smell strengthens as the beer warms up.
T: Like the smell, the taste is a little sour and has light notes of red wine from the barrel aging.
M: It feels light-bodied (but not watery) and rather tart on the palate with little if any carbonation.
O: This beer grows on you and the smell and taste improve as it warms up. It's not that sour but the tartness will slow you down. There wasn't much carbonation so I assum this is because it has been aging for a few years.
