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.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 21, 2013
Bottle 33 cl. Courtesy of anders37. Pours a cloudy opaque golden with a small white head. Nose is fruity and a little spicy. Medium body, spicy, a dry fruitiness, slightly yeasty with quite some late hops. I’m afraid the funk hasn’t really started! Still enjoyable though. 210113

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!

fiulijn (15310) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 1, 2013
Cloudy light amber color with medium sized creamy head. Messy aroma: spices, light funkiness, vegetables, yeast cake, light fruits (6 is a gift). Smooth mouthfeel; spicy flavor, but also too much yeast; the bitterness is too high (but this is an effect of the fermentation); all along there is a sharp metallic feeling.
Side note: after eating spicy food, some banana note appears, and the yeast defects are better masked.
A total mess overall. Poor, too close to clumsy homebrews; it should not be on the market of craft beers. QA before sales!
