COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Oscar Worthy Coffee. Three words, that when uttered, cause an almost Pavlovian drool response among New Belgium co-workers. Like our dry-hopped sour Le Terroir, Oscar Worthy Coffee is a beer unlike any other: It’s our sour Oscar “dry-beaned” with coffee in collaboration with Fort Collins friends The Bean Cycle. The result is an ultra-smooth sour beer that bursts with sour-and-espresso aromas, and it tastes like magic.

Dogbrick (13554) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 31, 2016
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2017 Sample at the Asheville brewery. Hazed brown color with a medium foamy light beige head that dissipates steadily to a film. Stringy lacing. Aroma of tart fruit, yeast and coffee. Medium body with flavors of tart fruit, earthy coffee and yeast. The finish is subtle coffee with a tart fruity aftertaste. Higher degree of difficulty to make this work, but decent overall.

Tmoney99 (14866) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 18, 2016
Tap. Poured a hazy brown color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy sour and dark coffee aroma. Medium to full body with a sticky tingly texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sour & coffee sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet & sour finish of moderate to long duration. This is a solid beer.

IndianaRed (4941) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 14, 2016
On tap at Bitter Creek Alehouse Hazy redish brown thin dense light tan head. Lots of coffee in the aroma and flavors. Very interesting combination of sour and mellow smooth coffee. I had my doubts, serious doubts but this is good, in a bizarre way.

Draft at HO1KB. Brown color with medium head. Aroma is coffee bean and sour fruits. Wow. Kind of tastes like smooth espresso bean with squeezed lemon/lime fruits. Crazy. But not too shabby. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

sonnycheeba (6279) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 22, 2016
Tap. Pours hazy brown with creamy beige head. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, bready malts, and some dark fruit notes. Flavor is dark fruit acidity and tartness up front that blends into smooth coffee flavors and soft bitterness. Medium body.

3.2
FROTHINGSLOSH (8069) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 27, 2016
Sampled on draft at Hou Thou this beer poured a murky dark brown color with a small creamy beige head that left great lacing. The aroma was strong brewed coffee with some red wine and vague fruits. The flavor was tart and vinegary followed by toasty malts, brewed coffee and then red wine. Amazingly long finish. Full bodied but a bit flat. Odd.

MrChopin (4304) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUN 10, 2016
[ keg ][ 4oz ][ @Max’s Sour Fest ][ $? ][ mini tumbler ][ 02.15.15 ]
hazy chestnut, thin tan ring no lacing. Heavy coffee roast nose with light acid, contrasting not married. Thin oily body shows coffee and acid contrast up front, no marriage but novel. Mid palate soft roast, zero grain and hop, thin and ultra slick through light leaf finish, more roast and ash again lifted by acid.

bhensonb (15624) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 18, 2016
Tap at Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours ruddy dark brown with a beige head. Aroma of really strong dark coffee. Med + body. Flavor is lightly sour; super strong earthy coffee. Some darkish malt. Coffee and sour sort of vibrate alternately. Strong flavors; yet it seems a bit subtle, like I missed an element.

3.7
marcus (10584) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAR 4, 2016
On tap at Capitol Beer & Tap Room. Pours dark brown with a nice beige head and a musty coffee aroma. There is a fairly sour dark malt flavor with a dry finish.

nickd717 (4843) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 12, 2016
Draft nitro at the brewery. Black in color with a lasting beige finger head. Huge coffee espresso aroma. Hints of an intense tartness. On the flavor, the tartness really comes through. Big and intense, lactic, astringent. Medium plus bodied with a smooth but biting feel. Sticks with you.
