Bottle at the Funky 6. Pours cloudy amber with an off-white head. Aroma holds citrus, spices, malts and some Belgian funk. Interesting flavor, lightly sweet with some tartness of funk and brett, some fruitiness. Medium in body with good carbonation. Finishes dry, quite musty, with some citric bitterness and understated malt sweetness. Good brew.

UPDATED: MAY 16, 2008 ***Re-rate*** Bottle... DLD’08... Cloudy, pale golden ale with a decently retained white head. Funky nose. Medium-bodied and fizzy. Acidic and sweet with lots of pale grain. Tangy, crisp finish. ***Original rating*** RBSG2006... Murky, golden ale with a small, fizzy, off-white head. Decent retention. Flemish, citric nose with lesser notes of pleasant spice and earthy, farmhouse characteristics. Malty-sweet, tangy flavor. Nice hop profile, but it doesn’t quite knock back all the honey-like sweetness. Medium-bodied and very fizzy. Mouthwateringly sweet finish, but not cloying.
