3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750mL thanks to womencantsail. Pours overcarbonated, big massive Orval like foam, volcanic/rocky retention. Hazy reddish color. Nose is heavy Brett B, Orval like. Taste is essentially an Orval clone as expected- musty/dusty, heavy cedar. Palate is aerated, minerally. Very nice.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
750 ml bottle crushed with TheDude. Pours a reddish brown with a tan head. Aroma of apple, belgian spice, some grassy hops. Flavor is dark fruit, apples, some spice. Quite sweet with some very mild bretty character. Some grassy earthy hops in a unconvincing attempt to balance this out. Mouthfeel is kind of flabby. A bit of a disappointment.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Nice appearance with good head and lace. Dry, yeasty, way overcarbed -- even 2hrs after the bottle was initially opened. Smells boring as shit; bland malts and stale hops. True to the Funkwerks style: mediocre.

Bottle. From notes. Funky with some decent horseblanket and barnyard. A little light fruit also. Very good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the brewery. Pours a cloudy mahogany color with a huge off-white head, rocky, that leaves some lace. Aroma of dark fruits, earth, toffee, bread, grass, and spice- mostly cinnamon. Flavor of mixed malts, tart and dried fruits, mild spice, and toast. Only mild bretty funk. Medium-bodied, with a smooth, malty mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. The brett is so subtle in this.

Bomber. Slightly murky orange pour with a huge head. Soft citrus and yeast aroma. Under carbonated? Perhaps. Decent.

Never know how to rate when you get a gusher. First 2 glasses very different from last and no clue what it was to be. High score for aroma malt toast some spice. Nice dark amber pour
