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.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 6, 2012
In bottle. Pours a dark golden colour with a lacy white head. Aroma of coffee, lemon, light balsamic vinegar and oak. Similar flavours and only mildly sour. Very well rounded with moderate carbonation and a foamy mouth-feel. Lovely with lingering coffee and balsamic vinegar.

375ml green bottle. Gold pour topped with creamy white foam. Nose has a decent sour streak with roasted coffee overtop. Just a faint funky note in there. Taste has typical lemony geuze sourness, light tang, coffee in the background, slight chocolate note from the coffee as well. The coffee lingers in the aftertaste, light cocoa, pseudo-earthines, some tang, lemony sourness. Lightish body, medium carbonation. Strange mix of ingredients, but this really works for me.

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!

DuffMan (6645) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 18, 2012
Bottle. Orangey golden, hazy, with a lively bubbly head that settles after a few minutes and leaves no lace. Aroma is funky and sour with a distinct minimally-roasted "green" coffee note that is unmistakable. Vegetal green coffee plays a nice balance to tart, funky, simple lambic character. Incredibly drinkable. This really surprised me, and I enjoyed it more the further along I got. By the end I wanted more! Similar coffee character to that found in their Kopi IPA. Odd but really enjoyable for me.

Pouring at The Festival in Worcester. Pours a hazed gold with a thin white head. Soft musk, funk on the nose. Coffee, funk, toast and musk. Spicy funk, jalapeno, coffee. Coffee and cocoa. Odd and very neat.
