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.

panacea (94) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - AUG 23, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 24, 2014 Pours light golden with white head. Nose is very fruity yet incredibly sour. Taste is as similar, fruity and sour. Extremely easy going thirst quenching. High carbonation and medium body. This beer one again show why Brekeriet is such a groundbreaking brewery in Sweden..

jesperhammer (3786) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 8, 2014
08-AUG-2014, bottle @home, from Mikkeller & Friends. Gusher. Not a lot but fortunately I open it by the kitchen sink and spill a little. Huge head of giant white bubbles that unfortunately dies quite fast. Aroma is wonderful saison. Spice, yeast, fruit, funk. Taste the same. Very dry, medium body and a cola-like carbonation of big bubbles. Fine saison.

330ml bottle. Deep hazy yellow body with a dash of orange. Medium high white crown that leaves loads of lacing. Aromas of citrus, pepper, candy and barnyard. Flavors of white pepper, sweet fruits and citrus. Dry and sweet finish.

Lätt dimmig, halm gul med vitt skum. Doft: Bananläsk, funk, halm, äppel källare, frukt, gräs. Smak: Funk, citron skal, växter, malt, äppel kart, bitter mandel, lite parfym. Önskar en stor flaska för lagring.

JBPortland (1369) - Portland, Maine, USA - JUL 4, 2014
12oz bottle pours hazy pale orange with big fluffy 3 finger brett head. Nose is musty light barny funk and brett fruit, light citrus, yeast spice. Taste is unfortunately a mess, dry, mostly unbalanced overpowering brett and for my palate lots of rubber, smoke, and melted plastic. Finish is the same.

wihlan (403) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUN 7, 2014
Tydlig doft av saison. Lätt grumlig men klarvitt skum. Saison smaken lurar i bakgrunden. Fin sötma av malten i eftersmaken och en mycket angenäm beska.
