375ml from Ann! Hazy orange-tan body. Thin oily head. Awesome wheaty sour aroma, very reminiscent of classic Belgian Lambics like Cantillon, 3 Fonteinen ect...The sour is more pronounced than the coffee, of which I get very faint light vanilla caramel tones, maybe adding some further dryness. I was expecting more of a sour brown coffee beer, but this is more a classic lambic, faint hints of coffee if you really search. Has the authentic dry wheat, maybe hop tones I just don’t see much in US sours. Really enjoyable beer, quite delicious. Garrold (5606) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 25, 2015
Bottle. Brewdog, Leeds. Gold, with a very light haze. Halo of white head. Nice, red wine vinegar sourness to this. Get the coffee, by way of a freshly ground, dark roast character. Some bready sweetness in there, too. Drinks dry, tart, and bready sweet. The coffee gives a little bitterness. Finishes dry, and tart. I’ve been looking at this for ages, thinking it might be a mess. That’s me wrong, then. SpongeRuiner (1114) - Michigan, USA - MAR 21, 2015

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.

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. kermis (14553) - The Hague / Amsterdam, 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. sic1314 (4967) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - NOV 28, 2014
Poured hazy medium amber with a small off white head. Aroma of coffee, tobacco, chocolate and roast malt. Medium body, flavour as the aroma, lightly sour.
