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. nuplastikk (6224) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 28, 2015
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. Theis (15152) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 8, 2012

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. 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. pintbypint (3584) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 15, 2012
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. 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! NBird (626) - Perth, West Australia, AUSTRALIA - NOV 30, 2013

Looks.. Golden /yellow orange, sml head in mikkeller spontant glass.
Smells.. A real roast note of coffee, but the coffee is a bit dusty and old, sour green apples, citrus.. More fruit than dank.
Tastes..unripe green apple, sharp citrus that is dulled toward the end with a roasty old coffee notes, dry and bitter finish.. Much better than I’d rated it when I had it a few years ago.
Looks.. Golden yellow/orange, med head. Smells.. Bret, funky fruity, aroma suggests this might be very sour. Tastes..of medium sourness / acidity, some citrus flavours before the coffee flavours, coffee grind and a big bitter almost burnt coffee finish. Bold, great with a cigarette, I liked it.
