Draft at Rattle n Hum during the Sours Gone Wild Event with Pat, Dallas, Bobby and Andrew. One of my least favorites of the day, pouring a hazy orange with nice white lacing. Aroma is light with some notes of yeast and hop. Mouthfeel is decent with notes of bitter hops and yeast. Bland and boring. anders37 (26227) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 22, 2011

11.2 oz. bottle. Pours a mostly clear coppery red with a thin-moderate light tan head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left partial lace. Very pleasant fruity aroma that is very noticeably sour with notes of vinegar and citrus. The flavor really surprised me; virtually none of the sourness present in the nose is present in the flavor. While the fruitiness is still there, it is sweet (fruity sweet not sugary) with malt and honey also present. Some mild alcohol warmth does not interfere. Medium bodied. Very nice! douglas88 (9058) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 20, 2011
Bottle at the Bayou. Pours a cloudy reddish orange color with a medium thick white head. The aroma is very sweet fruity malts. A rich flavor of dark fruits, strawberries, nutty, sugary. Very nice. GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - MAY 19, 2011
I’m lovin’ this brew. Pours a clouded burnt apricot color with a one finger head that lingers reducing to a spattered island and a fluffy lace. Mild aromatics but defined funk-e play and integral role here. Medium full nectar with mild creamy residual effers. Very easy to drink with a mild sweetness component backing up this lazy sourness that translates into old shoe leather and a touch of acidity. The finish goes on forever with excellent bittering. Amazing beer!

Poured a dark amber with a decent sized white head. Creamy. Stuck around for the long haul, covered glass in lace. Aroma was a mix of funk yeast, light fruity hops, some spicy notes, light wood, almost vinious. Quite interesting. Kinda reminded me of an Orval with a fruity twist. Quite interesting. Flavors were funked out as well. Woody, light fruit, vegetal. Booze was nonexistent. Different indeed. dcschiller (2208) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAY 13, 2011
(11.2oz bottle from AJ’s). Pours hazy amber with massive off-white head. Active carbonation. Aroma has some light funk, ripe fruit, and some wood. Taste is sweet malt and alcohol bite with some band-aid. Medium bodied with slick texture. Boozy finish. Interesting beer with an off flavor. beerguy101 (5360) - Newark, California, USA - MAY 12, 2011
Sampled on 4/23/2011. This Belgian Strong Ale pours a medium orange amber color from a 750ml bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity and sweet, a touch funky and dry. A medium bodied Belgian Strong Ale. The malts are fruity and sweet, funky and caramely. The hops are herbal and earthy. Nice carbonation. A touch of funk, some must and barnyard. Not a whole lot of funk going on in this beer, there is some in the aroma and a touch in the dry finish. I am kind of disappointed in this beer, with a name like Funky e star I was expecting Bootsy Collins, what we got was KC (without the Sunshine Band). Nice dry finish. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean, smooth and edry. Aftertaste is slightly bitter with a touch of funk.
