BEER HAIKU #60 Mikeller Spontanframboos

A decent turnout for Mikeller’s sour lambic at Hashigo Zake Cult Beer Bar, including a rare sighting of OtherMatt, who was already in mid-season form. Usual team; usual venue.

Mikeller Spontanframboos (6.7% ABV)

Makes the spine wiggle
After the gale, tongues shrivel
Sour with this sour beer

Food match: Melon and pecorino, honey smoked salmon quiche

It’s the kind of beer you drink when: The air is heavy, the bees are humming, and someone’s made a really awful quiche.

Pecorino romano (

One thought on “BEER HAIKU #60 Mikeller Spontanframboos

  1. I must protest at this week’s haiku. Mikeller’s Spontanframboos did not deserve such a sour and dour response. It was quite a perky little summer beer I thought, and most perfect in colour. There might have been spine winggling, but there was no tongue shivelling in my quarter.
