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.

TheJestersBeer (2138) - - FEB 4, 2013
330ml bottle. Pours a cloudy medium straw, with a thin white head. Spicy, malty aroma, citrus, hay, funk, brett, barnyard, a few estery notes, and a hint of bubblegum. Dry, light to medium body, medium bitterness, relatively low CO2. Spicy, yeasty taste, malt, earth, grapefruit peel, hay, faint wisps of smoke and phenols. A very nice effort, but it feels a little bit uncomplex, and the finish is a bit tart/harsh. Promising, but not quite there yet. (2013-02-04)

bartlebier (1981) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - DEC 8, 2014
33cl bb11/2015, takk pmgep (EU local swap 7.0). Enticing pickled & old citrus zest aroma, funk 2.0 for the gentrified urban masses fashioning itself from its most accessible at first whiff, even venturing an echo of lambic sour grapefruit, to alas then also reveal quite some chlorine/bleach. Taste shows the same cleft between easily likeable dried & pickled old lemon peel and a distinct bath foam soapiness, going into stale lemongrass and turned canned lichee. Highly carbonated at that. Half enjoyable, fully appreciated the bumpy ride.

Gerbeer (2003) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 30, 2014
Bottle. Pours a hazy gold with light white head. Aromas of lemons and light yeast with a bit of white pepper. Sharp flavours of dried lemon, grain and grass. Acidic, dry finish.

brokensail (11600) - Orange County, California, USA - NOV 23, 2014
Bottle @ The Festival 2014. Hazed golden pour with white foam. Well, it’s certainly funky. A bunch of lemon, yeast, and barnyard. Slight straw and grass as well. The flavor is totally different and totally terrible. Soapy, astringent, and papery. A bunch of chlorine and cardboard as well.

floydian1 (1063) - FNQ, Australia, - OCT 14, 2014
330ml bottle in Copenhagen with expiry 26/11/15 (Batch no 22). Hazy pale golden with a large foamy white head of good duration and soapy lace. Nose has musty barnyard funk with citrus and peppery spices. Flavour is peppery and bitter with a grassy hay hop bitterness. Medium bodied palate with spritely mouthfeel. Overall an excellent Saison with Brett-like elements.

Hazy gold beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is airy and semi dry. Mild superfine carbonation. Yep - funk! Does what it says on the tin here! Additional floralness and super light and dry malty cream. Little citrus and mildly savoury note develops to the brett. Dry finish. Funk lovers head here!

panacea (93) - 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 (3050) - 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.
