COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Solenna pairs the fruitiness of a traditional Belgian yeast strain with the subtle spicy character of Brettanomyces and the floral notes of German hops. Notes of candy apple, cinnamon, and fresh-cut grass give way to a dry finish and firm lingering bitterness.

Red orange pour with an average lasting large bubbled white head. Floral aroma with traditional barnyard funk. Tart flavor with hibiscus, very earthy. Decent overall.

sweet malty nose. Malty mouth with big Belgian yeast but pretty unsophisticated.

KyotoLefty (9847) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 10, 2016
Tap at Marciero. Dark brown with reddish tint and lace. Hazy. Spicy nose ginger, cinnamon, fudge, raisins. Funky, spicy yeast, chocolate, licorice. As it warmed, it got more and more spicy, too much.

Ernest (7553) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 17, 2016
Bottle (Aug 24, 2016 bottling). Head is initially average sized, frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is dark amber. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain), with notes of clove, plastic (those little "army men" toys), dirt/compost, autumn leaves, carpet, metal. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter, spicy, slightly unclean. Medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation. Surprisingly poor...rough and dirty aroma is not at all enticing (perhaps from a poor Brett strain or poor fermentation technique), and while the flavor balance is mostly ok it seems overspiced with something (maybe it doesn?t contain adjuncts but it sure smells like it...like a lot of real cloves, not yeast-like clove-ish notes) and the aftertaste is a bit dirty too. A certified drain pour. Two more strikes from recent Funkwerks samples, guess I?ll resume ignoring this brewery again. Sigh.
