COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brekeriet Black Label
Brekeriet Funkstarter is a Scanian saison receiving its special character by fermentation using a mixture of different yeast strains, particularly those of the genus Brettanomyces. The beer is carbonated naturally by fermentation in the bottle and therefore giving a thin layer of yeast on the bottom.

jookos (2526) - FINLAND - APR 23, 2014
Bottle@ølhus-sto. Light orange hazy. Nice slight funky, hayish pale malty nose. Citrus there, coriander. Med light body, bitter dry. Refreshing. A bit stuffy though, not as smooth in flavour, bit grainy husky. And slight tart zesty. Don’t mind this at all, but could be a bit smoother. Crafty though. Lively carbd.

Flavours were spices, fruitiness, hops, malts, sourness and bitterness. Afteraste was spicy and bitter. A Saison with American twist.
