3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A: The pour is a slightly hazy golden amber color with a large white head and tons of carbonation bubbles in the glass.
S: The nose starts out with a nice tropical fruitiness of pineapple and mango, along with some citrus notes. However, these enjoyable aromas give way to solvent and ethanol.
T: The industrial cleaner character does not translate to the flavor, thankfully. The citrus and tropical fruits do, however, and are really what this beer is about. A bready malt base with a light bitterness on the finish. Though the name of the beer leaves me wondering, where is the funk?
M: A medium bodied beer with a very aggressive carbonation and perhaps a touch dry on the finish.
D: I would have liked this beer more were it not for the nose. The flavors were decent enough, but the solvent aroma really does this one an injustice.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown, creamy off-white head that doesn’t last long, heavy lacing. Aroma of malt and sour barnyard. Taste is a little sweet, very malty, with a little sour bite. Little bitterness. I’d like more sourness. Medium body, low carbonation.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
750ml Bottle: Faint aroma of hops and grains. I wish I knew why others smelled such strong things in this, and I do not. Poured copper/amber in color with a medium to large-sized, creamy, dense, pillowy, off-white head that diminished but lasted throughout. Cloudy. Sparkling. Full of tiny, and a couple of large, particles throughout. Very good lacing. Flavor is lightly sweet and lightly bitter. Tastes of light caramel, light hops, resin, light toasting, and a hint of cocoa. Medium body. Slightly tingly, slick, creamy, texture. Soft carbonation. Lightly sweet, slightly bitter, caramel finish. 9.5%ABV is completely hidden throughout. Pretty boring. Very little flavor or aroma. A bad bottle or something perhaps?

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pretty much the epitome of mikkeller’s beers. A total discombobulation; a train wreck. No focus, no game plan.
"Hey, lets make a new beer"
"ok. What should we do?"
"Lets just throw some of this stuff in, and then add brett!"

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
750mL bottle. Pours a deep translucent amber with a big head. Aroma smells like a mix of herbal hops and sweet clementines and watermelon. Taste is fairly malty, maintaining the citrusy sweetness up until the finish. After a few drinks, I thought it was almost too sweet, but not quite. Then I drank half a glass, and after that it was way too sweet. Finish has some clementine peel and herbs, but then sort of falls apart into a malty mess with what makes me thing of artificial sweetener. Wierd beer.
