GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - MAY 19, 2011
Im 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!

mixmasterob (1057) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 15, 2011
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 AJs). 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.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 24, 2011
750mL bottle. Poured medium apple-juicy Orange with a nice cap of khaki head. The aroma picked up lighter fruits and a touch of citrus, with fruity and funky accents.. some deeper cola and honey sugars.. warm and welcoming. The flavor found more lighter and medium-skinned fruits, with hints of honey and molasses.. fruity bitterness and funky Brett on the back.. really dried out at the end. Medium-bodied and dry on the palate.. interesting and well-balanced.. good one!

patricks110 (2468) - Alberta, CANADA - APR 20, 2011
UPDATED: FEB 6, 2012 Re-rate with a bottle aged 2 years. Pours out a dark orange amber with a finger of beige yellow head. Thick sticky lacing all over the glass. The nose has a sweet hop forward with a bunch of fruits and a light caramel malt. A bunch of funky fruit and musty notes in the aroma. The taste has a sweet pear, apricot and green grape fruit with a musty funk and definate barnyard notes. A bit of sourness and a big sweetness. The finish has a bit of astringency and a prolonged barnyard funk. Funky(e)* has a pronounced funky Brettomyces throughout. overall, still a great brew. Might keep another one for a few more years. Original rating: A pretty damn solid brew. I cellared this one for around a year. The pour is dark amber with a finger of darker beige head. Definate carbonation and pronounced yeast aroma. The aroma has tons of fruity esters and yeast with a light funk note and moderate caramel malts. The taste is sweet and fruity in the middle with a definately note of funk or light sour. Malts are bready and sweet with a mild hop. The fruity esters of apricot, prune, pear mix well with the noted funk/sourness. Overall, an interesting brew for sure.

Palme (4433) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 20, 2011
0.75l bottle shared @ Henrik VAN-Bergen session. Pours a semi cloudy orange body with a few black floaters and a near non existing white head. The first aroma that bombarded my nose is dishwashing detergent, yeast and a full load of ripe fruits like banana, melon, peach and pineapple. Medium to full-bodied, texture is smooth, oily and the carbonation is medium. Flavors are yeast, caustic soda, pine and nice warming alcohol. Ends in a longlasting dry and semi-sweet finish. Funky indeed! Happy Easter!
