Cloudy, dark golden pour with thick, white, fine foam. Lots of mustiness in the nose with a good dose of tart. Floral and earthy touches as well. Strong yeast tang in the flavor with the brett and saccharo yeasts combining well. I think the brett comes out on top, but it does not overshadow. There is a hops presence, but it is muted and on the floral end. It is most present, I think in the bitter finish. The smooth cereal malt and malted wheat come through at toward the middle and end, but the final flavor is a sour hop note. Medium body with lots of carbonation, and a slight slipperiness. It is a sweeter saison, largely thanks to the two malts. Traces of the mineral flavors, but comparatively mild.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Max’ place. Thanks Stas & Max. Hazy blond with a big foamy head. Funky, smoked Georgian cheese and some spruce in the nose, a little bit of olive oil, a little spicy-oregano and some funk in the mouth. Light body, smooth texture, spicy-slightly bitter finish.

Today I’m trying my first beer from Brekeriet. It’s a Swedish brewery from 2012 who only brew with wild yeast. I’ve found myself this bottle of Funk Starter; a Farmhouse ale brewed with Brettanomyces. It’s coming in at 5.5% ABV. It pours a slightly hazy golden colored body with a fizzy head that disappates quickly. It has a very funky and peppery aroma with some fruity notes too. A bit of spice and bread as well. It smells like a watered down saison. All the classic saison flavors are present but toned way way down. The taste is light and a slightly sour. There’s some definite notes of funk, citrus and spice. It is really light though. The most dominant flavor is the funky yeast. The sourness comes through a little better in the aftertaste, but vaguely. I guess the name suggest that it’s a starting beer for people who’s just been introduced to brett. I’m a little disappointed to be honest. It’s not a bad beer in any way – it just doesn’t have that funky and sour kick that makes it memorable. It’s refreshing and goes down super fast. A sixer of these on a hot day surely wont hurt anybody.
