bhensonb (10970) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 8, 2012
Bottle from The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours dark gold with a creamy/foamy white head. Aroma is coffee. Med minus body. Flavor is coffee, but there’s a underlying tart/sour note. Coffee and gueuze. Well, I’d prefer it without the coffee, mayhap, but it works. Always good to try new things.

jackl (4576) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - OCT 8, 2012
Bottle sample @ Borefts 2012. The pour’s cloudy amber with a small head. The nose is funky coffee creamer, roasted espresso bean, weird malevolent funkiness. Angry! The taste is tangy berry, more coffee, powdered chocolate and nasty bile. Some acetic vinegar. Medium body. Overall, a very strange beer. Not a success. This should’ve stayed in the recesses of Mikkel’s warped brain!

Countbeer (4393) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - OCT 7, 2012
Bottle @BBF’12: Almost clear orange colored beer with no head, just a hnd full of bubbles. Smell is sour, wild yeast, some dried sour fruit notes, some coffee. Typical Lambic with a coffee tint. It’s different... Taste is pretty ok, some nice sour/tart tones with some coffee tones, again it’s different, but it works. The sourness is more present with the coffee in the back, good combo. Also some typical Lambic notes as yeast, brett, yoghurt sour, cellar, older sour fruits, coffee, bitter and a hint of coffee beans. Low to medium carbo, watery sharper and light spicy tingly mouthfeel, good medium bodied and a light watery texture.

gyllenbock (4563) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 5, 2012
Sample at SBWF 2012. Golden with a minimal white head. Sour aroma with fresh coffee beans, lemon, barnyard and malt. Dry taste with coffee, lemon, brett and malt. The finish was really sour. An interesting one from Mikkeller.

abemorsten (2746) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - OCT 4, 2012
From bottle at Borefts Beer Festival 2012. Clear golden body with a white rim. Earthy coffee and berries on the nose. Grapefruit, chlorine, light bitter and acidic flavors. Sharp mouth. Medium body. Prickling tongue that ends dry.

bierkoning (10163) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - OCT 4, 2012
From bottle @ Borefts 2012. Pale orange color, brett, lemon and hints of coffee in the aroma. Sour flavor, citric and very bretty. Subdued coffee.

MotherBrother (692) - Aalborg, DENMARK - OCT 4, 2012
Bottle @ BBF 12. Pout hazy light orange, with no head. Aroma of brett, funk, slight barnyard and then the coffee comes. Really struggling these two very different aromatic sensations. Quite weird. Taste is pretty bitter and sour. Average body, with a slight fizzy carbonation. - This doesn’t do it for me.

dEnk (3791) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - SEP 29, 2012
Bottle @ bbf. Aroma is funky red fruit, some faint coffee. Flavour is dry fruity sourness with a roasty bitter coffee finish. Works better than expected.

TheAlum (5687) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - SEP 29, 2012
375 ml bottle from West Lakeview Liquors (Chicago, IL). An interesting offering I had to give a shot to. Pours a deeper golden amber hue, a bit of darkness, glowing orange body is darker, moving to more dark golden edges. A decent haziness, cakey loose offwhite head atop stays as a mellow layer, laces small as a mellow layer. Aromas are sour apples and lemons, lactic acid with hay, straw, and gentle yogurt. Growing funk comes on, dust and cobwebs, horseblanket and gentle yet growing coffee roast, earthy and a touch of apple and vinegar, cidery. Some oak, gentle funk, coffee. An odd bag. Initial is lighter end of the fold, perhaps a touch of body preaching some sourness up front, lemons and crab apples, some oka lactic qualities, yogurt and gentle grass, hay. Straw, some horseblanket and dust, cobwebs. Tartness is mellow, yet more up front. Middle shows funk and coffee, the coffee element provides roast and earth, some sweetness, a darker slant with a touch of cocoa, pretzel, and oak. Some tartness, as the backend moves towards earth and roasty coffee, the sourness gets lighter and fades, some dusty and funky elements, with oak, coffee firmly lingers on with funk, touches of crab apple sourness. Certainly an odd beer, an interesting experiment, but not awful. I wouldn’t say it suits my personal tastes, but alas, it’s interesting to see some lambic experiments and the beer itself is good enough, thanks largely to a solid base
