ruggedman (647) - Portland, Maine, USA - APR 9, 2013
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!

MrHangover (2766) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 29, 2014
Bottle @ THT November. Pours a hazy golden beer with a small white head on top. Aroma of coffee, wild yeasts, Lambic funk. Very cool to acutally smell the coffee trough the lambic influences. Coffee is also present in the flavor, though a bit faded. Tartness is mellowed by the coffee, making this an interesting combination. Fun stuff.

Benzai (8987) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - NOV 28, 2014
Sampled from bottle @ THT November. Hazy yellow to light orange color, small off-white head. Aroma is a mix between sourness and coffee as expected. Taste is a combination of sourness and coffee as well, which is weird but somehow pretty nice.

JulienHuxley (3482) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - NOV 28, 2014
Bottle at THT. Slightly hazy gold pour with lacy white head. Aroma is vegetal, nice coffee, light lemony notes, light funk. Taste is tart, nice lemony flavor, less coffee forward than the aroma. Not great, but better than I expected.

Bottle shared @ THT. Thin creamy white head. Very hazy blond pour. Coffee aroma and taste. The coffee overpowers the sourness which is nice.

"having this before ever trying the base geueze or any of the fruit varieties may have been a mistake. After the fact, I gotta say, as much as I love coffee beers, this combination of flavors is not one i’d seek out again. at first the coffee is the main player in the aroma, but it fades into an equal share with the stinky cheese aspects of the base. the flavors are just a bit of a mess. nothing bad, but very odd together - no way any of us would have wanted a bottle to ourselves."

Trübes orangegelbes Bier mit wenig weißem Schaum. Geruch säuerlich, fruchtig, Kaffee, etwas alkoholisch. So ist auch der Geschmack. Ungewöhnliches Bier.
