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.

ClubGonzo (3509) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 29, 2013
Bottle from Vinmonopolet in Valkendorfsgate, Bergen. Pours a clear golden body with a medium, short-lasting white head. Nose is banana, pale malts, straw, white sugar, bubble gum, rose water, saison yeast and hints of lemony brett tones in the back. Taste is white sugar, saison yeast, citric acid, straw and hints of bitter herbs in the back. Light to medium body, dry finish and a medium to high carbonation level. I must say this is a rather nice beer, refreshing and complex at the same time. Good to learn that Brekeriet can deliver good brews after my first encounter with them, which was quite horrible.

HoppyBudgie (606) - SOLA, NORWAY - OCT 9, 2013
Hazy pale orange with white head. Aroma of fruit, esters, yeast and a funky brett finish. Taste is fruity, ester, fruity malts and dry brett finish. A real taster this. Think the saison style is perfect to experiment with brett in.
