4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Rating today for two reasons: on vacation in Europe and I canít remember any more beer, the other because the rating of this beer is shameful I think.
Gueze-like backbone to this beer... If youíve 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 Iíve waited to see, but itís 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!

Aroma is malts, a hint of coffee and tart fruit. The flavor is tart fruit, malts and a hint of the coffee in the finish. The lambic part of this was good but the coffee aspect didnít do any thing for it apart from there not being much of it in the flavor.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured with a golden color and a small white head. Sour notes in the nose, with hints of vanilla, raw dough, brett, caramel, and (maybe) some citrus peel. I cannot pick up much coffee, sorry. Maybe hints of green coffee, but not roasted. Sour, tarty taste. A strange one.

Uploading old ratings that were missing comments. Very interesting beer. The coffee cuts the sourness nicely. I'd like to try this one again.

Bara rena dumheter. Det här hade kunnat bli en riktigt bra lambik om man gett fan i kaffet. Det bara stör. Tillför nada.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Interesting but I dont get the coffee really. The pour is beautiful with a huge head and scintilating bubbles. The nose is lightly hopped with floral notes and light acidic sourness with notes of wood, funk and must. Nice complex flavour with a mild sourness. The finish is dry and astringent but nothing much of a gueuze here

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. What can I say about this one? Itís a gueuze with coffee. Iím not sure it totally works, but itís not bad either. Clear deep golden with a small short lived fluffy white head. Aroma is musty barrel and vegetal coffee with light vanilla notes. Silky full bodied palate. Taste is tart fruit, apricot and cherry, and coffee with some malty caramel notes in the background and a fairly clean coffee and sour fruit flavor on the back end and finally ending with a sharp dryness. It gets points for being interesting.
