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.

Leighton (9883) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2013
Bottle at home in London - big thanks to Fredrik for hooking it up in the trade! Pours cloudy, deep gold with a large, frothy white foam head. Lots of tangy funk in the nose, sweaty armpit, zippy lemon. Light to medium sweet flavor, lots of bretty funk, some lemon, dank grapefruit, melon, background doughy bread. Medium bodied with average to lively carbonation. Moderate sweetness coupled with sturdy funk, some dry yeast, a bit of sugary dough, tangy lemon, mellow grassy bitterness. Great stuff overall, very dynamic. Quite refreshing, cleansing. And punches above its weight class.

Countbeer (4078) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - FEB 17, 2014
Bottle: Thanks Papsø: Served in a Duvel glass: Medium sized white foamy head on top of a darker yellow colored beer. Aromas of yeast, flowers, brett, vanilla, cream, hay, earth and some rubber. Flavours of floral tones, different yeast, some brett, some saison yeast, some flowers, nice bitter, some cellar and dusty tones, crispy, hay, some herbs and hops and a hint of wood with flowers. Aftertaste is a mix of biters, yeast, flowers, some malts and light dry. Medium carbo, creamy mouthfeel, very good balanced more than just a medium body and a ligh creamy texture. I love this stuff! Lovely mix of yeast, some nice flowers and a good bitterness. Wel done!

UPDATED: APR 13, 2014 Several classes better than Orval when Funkstarter shows a fine balance between sweetness and bitterness, malt and hops. Very nice saison where they have chosen to give the yeast space without exaggeration and acidity.

Frovigalning (2720) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JAN 18, 2013
Bottle from Systembolaget. Very funky smell with some fruity notes and something that reminds me of nettles or maybe kiwi. Similar taste with a peppery note. Very nice.

Vignale (1812) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JAN 20, 2013
Flaska från SB. Mörkt gyllenenfärgad, rejält grumlig. Stor brettdoft, jäst, örter och kryddor, kanske lite mer likt en hefeweissen än annan brettöl jag provat. Smaken går också i hefestil men med mindre sötma och mer örtighet. Lite blommvattenkaraktär, nejlikor, jäst och liten beska. Snäll, drickvänlig och en bra brettstarter.

cpetrone84 (1204) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 11, 2013
Pour is hazy golden amber with a moderately bubbly white head. The nose is nice, strong lemon presence with a moderate yeast undertone and light balance of peppery spice. Lightly candied sugar and citrus hop presence behind. Taste follows the nose, spicy Saison yeast, lemon, candied fruit, balances hop bitterness in back. Semi dry, well carbonated, crisp on the palate. Good stuff.

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.

Bottle from Vika enjoyed at home
Copper hazy, big white frothy head. Smells of saison yeast, quite fruity, melon, clove, spices and light malts. Light sweet, very dry, fruity yeast notes, melon and spices. Moderate to medium bitter. Excellent saison
