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!
Green coffea in both aroma and taste. Gives a Nice aroma but kind of dry in the finish. The cheese made by arlaunika using this beer was amazing, the beer was only ok. Maakun (6306) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 21, 2017
Bottle shared. Hazy orange golden, small off white head. Quite fruity with apricot, dried berries, some dried coffee beans, soft nuts, hay, light minerals. There’s not much coffee left but it works nice in the background. Light sweet, sour and bitter. Medium bodied. sjogro (4651) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 21, 2017
Bottle shared at Puttetjes’, courtesy of Maakun. Thanks for sharing! Hazy amber gradient. Thin greyish head. Smells of coffee beans and lambic. Sweet malts, coffee berry, sour grapes, sweet caramels, bitter roasted coffeebean, nuttiness, almond and hazel. It works. It’s proof that everything is better with coffee. Light sweet, moderate sour and bitter. Medium body. Soft carbonation. Aroma’s in all directions. Very nice. Bov (13221) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JAN 30, 2017

375ml heavy glassed green bottle with expiry 30/4/22. Appearance is bright orange with a medium-large lasting cream-white head. I don’t get any coffee on the nose - just the usual musty horse blanket funk with perhaps a hint of orange citrus. Taste is similar with the earthy coffee granules only coming through at the very end of the palate. Good dry tart profile but not one of Mikkeller’s best. HPDalen (376) - DENMARK - APR 2, 2016
Citrus and coffee aroma. Pours golden with very little white head. Totally sour taste with coffee. Medium bodied, fizzy and quite abrupt. Weird, but strangely satisfying FatPhil (16925) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 7, 2015
375ml bottle (Zmogsala 2015, Vilnius)oh6gdx (26487) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 23, 2015
Totally weirdo aroma, it’s coffee and lambic, basically. Nice orange, small head. Taste is weirder, but not so acceptable, it’s a mismatch. Gerkhin ice-cream. Bacon-scented shower gel. Coffee lambic. Some combinations just don’t work well.
Bottled. Hazy orange/very pale brown colour with a mediumsized white head, that leaves some lace. Aroma is coffee, some sour wood, mild grainy and citrusy notes as well. Flavour is quite similar, with the coffee being quite subtle and settled, not pushing through all too much. OK, but still feeling rather strange.

4/13/2015. From bottle. Light amber with a white head. Funky, cheesy aromas. Hints of coffee, yeast, barnyard. Tart with a light sourness. A bit of coffee on the finish.
