lauraele (6) - novi ligure, ITALY - JUL 10, 2013 does not count
frizzante come uno champagne, bollicine piccole, tante e secche. da bere a sorsi per assaporare l’iniziale gusto di caffè che si ripete ogni volta.

JohnnyJ (4306) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 1, 2013
Bottle at Stone Sour Fest 2013. Hazy yellow pour, with a fizzy white head. Tart sourness, acidic lemon, weird combo of brett and coffee, and some sweet malt. Not great.

mcberko (6260) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 8, 2013
375mL bottle at Mikkeller Bar, pours a hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma of coffee beans, tart dry fruit, and barnyard funk. Flavour brings out a great marriage between gueuze and coffee, with notes of barnyard funk, light acidity, and subtle coffee notes. Very bizarre blend, that only Mikkeller would think of doing. Not a disaster, but also nothing that impressive. Glad to have tried the only known coffee lambic in existence. Decent stuff.

Pyrmir (3306) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAY 6, 2013
Bottle. Pours golden yellow with thin white head. Nose of lemony acidity, dusty basement and soft tangy roasted coffee. Flavors of lemon acidic notes, basement and underlying coffee. Interesting but not great

Hansen (6569) - Assentoft, DENMARK - APR 21, 2013
Why? Odd. Golden coloured and hazy. Has a white head, medium duration. Acidic aroma, sweet, odd fruity too, bad yeasty...or is it the coffee? Heavy acidic flavor, astringt too. Rubarb and old socks.

JanLaursen (3063) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 19, 2013
Hazy golden small white head. Odd, dusty pulterkammer-aroma with smooth coffee and chocolate, basement, light vinegar, hay. Astringent hayish , tart flavor with faint coffee aromas and grapey notes. Earth. Wood. Long lingering, rather bitter finish with berrylike notes. Strange mix, but quite some drinkabillity albeit the coffee.

Very hazy gold beer, decent pale cream coloured head. Light crisp palate, semi dry. Woody mellow sourness, touch of bitterness. Mellow coffee comes through at the end as a subtle aftertaste. Equally subtle white wine vinegar underneath.

HenrikSoegaard (10476) - Randers, DENMARK - APR 12, 2013
Bottle. Creamy white good mostly lasting head. Dark yellow colour. Ugly unpleasent aroma. Dry old wool flavor. Average light bitter cloying finish. oily palate. Some gueuze notes but hidden in total rubbish. Drain pour.

Rating today for two reasons: on vacation in Europe and I can’t remember any more beer, the other because the rating of this beer is shameful I think. Gueze-like backbone to this beer... If you’ve ever had the spontanale you kind of have an idea where this beer started. But the addition of coffee makes this not only an exercise I’ve waited to see, but it’s something really ingenious too. Coffee can take the place of aged hops, at least theoretically, the dingy bitterness it offers can play a similar game. It does offer a much more complicated herbal essence to the beer than hops would have. With the tartness of the gueze at play on your taste buds the rest of your tongues senses are left to revel in a myriad of nutty, earthy, dank flavors present in the coffee. I love this stuff... Great work!
