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.

funky aroma with loads of grassy notes. Brett is a bit overpowering, a bit lacking everything else but pretty thirst quenching and easy saison.

bbertels (229) - NORWAY - APR 18, 2015
Bottle. Big, frothy head that recedes slowly, orange in colour, heavy carbonation. Strong presence of the, well, funky brettanomyces strain in the aroma as well as taste. Nice saison with unruly funkness!

Notes of bretty funk, horseblanket, straw, oak, dry grain, grass, and faint vinous notes. Light-bodied, with a low to moderate carbonation. Funky in the aroma and dry in the flavor. Good funky saison.
