COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Malt beverage aged in used wine barrels. O’so Brewery presents Funk Factory’s inaugural blend: Dweller on the Threshold. Averaging 18 months, this is a blend of sour beer which has been fermented and matured in french oak wine barrels. It was then bottle conditioned and will continue to mature in the bottle for up to 10 years if kept dark and cool. Enjoy this sour, wild and of course funk beer! Proceeds of this bottle will help Funk Factory build a coolship and continue their efforts to produce Lambic according to the traditional method. Thanks for your support!

Skyview (5269) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - SEP 13, 2014
Picked up 750ml bottle (181/450) from Funk Factory release party at O’so brewery tap room. Pours a hazy Amber colored brew with a thin off-white head that quickly dissipates and leaves behind a film top and minimal lacing. Aroma of funk caramel and mild cheddar cheese. Taste is medium bodied, minimal carbonation but still has plenty of barnyard funk, toffee, light oak and citrus. Finish has a high tartness at first and then slowly fades out. Most of the guests were trying to get the Scarlett Letter. This one was the sleeper sour that most overlooked.

Bacterial (1727) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - SEP 11, 2014
Clear amber pour with no head. Low carbonation. Beautiful nose - cheesy and funky. Sour, slight citrus quickly fading into complex soft oak, slightly bitter finish. Very nicely done.

5000 (6299) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 30, 2014
Bottle:   Dark dirty straw, thin sudsy white head, little lacing.   Big dank rustic lambic like nose, a little corked but it seems to me like one of those aged lambics here.   Much softer on the tongue, not as acidic, and actually rather middle of the road.   Brings up a little graininess and a touch of butter on the backside.   Albeit its light.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   A little tart, a touch dry, but not as crisp as I would have liked. &nbdp Does have some mealy notes to it that linger.   Tiz okay, but the little touch of butteriness is distracting.   Thanks Bob!

Sampled at the RBSG 2014. It poured a golden color with a white head. The aroma was of toffee, citrus, yeast, grapefruit and some tartness. The taste was of toffee, honey, lemon and a bit of ginger.

Bottle @ home, big thanks to readbaron for sending! Pours a cloudy dark orange appearance with a thin, off white head. Aroma is simply fantastic with tons of fucking cheese, funk, and basement aromas. Body is a little thin. Definitely some candy necklace flavors along with passion fruit, lemon, and pineapple. A good amount of yogurt, oak, white wine, and fruits. Aroma is unbelievable but the flavor isn’t quite up to par. Carbonation is a bit dull. Fun brew!

Pour out of 750 mL bottle, thanks Aaron for the pour! Hazy orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of funk, white fruit, lemon, nice funky, earthy tones, nice grassy, aged hop note in there as well, slight citrus, nice. Taste is a mix of slight grass, yogurt, hints of lacto, lemon, slight funky notes into a bit of hints of earth, finishing fairly tart, slightly dry.
