Mother Funker is a sour blonde ale that has been aged for several years in barrels predominately used for Chardonnay. Mother Funker is a seriously sour beer, perhaps the most sour beer we’ve produced so far. Bursting with citrus, funk, and a hint of white vinegar, Mother Funker is for those who like their sours with more sour.

Holy Christ this is sour! 25oz bottle. This one has been taunting me in my cellar to drink it, pours out a nice lighter golden yellow hue. Aromas are a smack in the face, in fact my wife could smell it from across the room, powerful lemon zest aromas, screaming acidity, a little funk. Palate is weak only because of how sour and acidic this one is. Fruit is up front then a ripping acid hits the mid and makes you feel like a hole is getting drilled in your stomach. It finishes long with a reverberating cascade of lemon warheads on the way down. I’m splitting my bottle between tonight and tomorrow, share this one for sure.

Looks like orange water. Nose is so freaking acidic. The taste is holy crap. like the most sour thing I’ve ever tasted ever. Lots of vinegar, some citrus and oaky notes. mostly just hard to finish a glass of this. my mouth is watering just writing this review. so sour.

Sample at Kurtkeller 012: Bruery-tastic 01 on 05/16/2014. Hazy pale yellow color with a medium thin white head that recedes steadily to an outer ring. Strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of funky fruits, oak and yeast. Light to medium body with a mouth-puckering vinous and citric character, along with oaky and herbal yeast notes. The finish is sour with a lingering citrus aftertaste. Good Sour all around.

Bottle share thanks to DrewFace., aroma is sour. Taste is sour as balls. Makes me want to cry and eat salt. Maybe that would help. I want to pass a stone. My belly hurts.

JBPortland (780) - Portland, Maine, USA - FEB 7, 2014
750ml bottle thanks to matboz. Pours flat clear pale golden yellow with no head, a few bubbles. Nose is strong acetic acid and vinegar, nail polish remover, funk, lemon, the nose is pretty off-putting. Taste is sour acidic lemon, vinegar, and maybe some citrus? Hard to taste anything over the acidity. Finish is acetic sour, slight burn, with some bits of earthy hay, one-dimensional. Finished maybe 2oz of this and that was enough.
