3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma is a mix of sour/tart fruit and bubblegum/bananas. The flavor is bubblegum sweetness, malts and a tart, mildly funky finish. Not quite as strong flavor as I was expecting, it was good but could’ve been better.

Bottle. Love the label so this must be good! Pours a murky light copper color with a minimal white head. The aroma is more supdued than I would have thought with hints of bubblegum and grapefruit. Medium mouthfeel. Huh, taste more just like a belgian to me than anthing. Bubblegum and some fruit notes with a mild bitterness in the end. Where is the funk man?!

375ml bottle from a trade, thanks stawn!
Bottled 06/23/12 -
Pours clear yellowish orange with a small foamy head. Aroma of earthy farmhouse notes, biscuity malts, yeast, hints of tart fruits and yeast. Taste has a lot of farmhouse notes, hints of yeast, tart fruits and biscuity malts. Finish is sweetish and slightly fruity with some hints of apricose and spices. Quite sweetish and malty Belgian tripel, not really that sour or tart. Where’s the bretta?

Pours a clear golden colour with a white foamy head. Aroma of dried apricot, yeast and mandarin orange. Flavour of pale malts, bread, dried apricot, mandarin orange, pepper and yeast. Some tart citric notes. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and high carbonation. Feels more like a Tripel rather than a Sour Ale.

NIce, simple, balanced. Honey color, no head. Sweet, floral nose. Summer beer. Light hops hidden on the back of my palate. Light, balanced soda carbonation. Not much funk to it - lemon, floral.

Pouring at the Night of the Funk. Pours a hazed amber gold with a medium sized white head. Big sweet brett, cheesy funk. Smooth, creamy, almost milky. Wheat, light brett. Soft wheat and toast on the finish. Not bad at all, but I was hoping for a lot more from this and it didn’t come through.
