beerguy101 (5359) - 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.

Spicey yeasty concoction. Yeast somewhat funky, average mouthfeel, great lace on reddish body. Boozy. A bit of sourness.

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!

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 (4269) - 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!

UPDATED: DEC 28, 2012 Draught. Pours hazy amber brown with a largs off-white head with great lacings. Sweet whie nose with grape fruit, honey and spicy notes. Sweet flavour with fruit, honey, grass and notes of yeast. Low carbonation. Medium to full bodied. Nice bitter finish. A very different but also very drinkable brew. ★★★★

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 13, 2011
In short: Sweet apple marmalade and strange wild yeast notes. A failed attempt at something?
How: Bottle 750ml. Consumed relatively fresh, most than 3 years before expiration date!!!
The look: Mostly cloudy dark amber body topped by a long-lasting small off-white head
In long: Nose is really not mostly sweet apple marmalade with notes of caramelized onions with light wild yeast notes. Taste is more of the same. Sweet caramelized apple marmalade, some apricots and peaches. Very sweet. Strange sour green apples notes. The funk (if we can call it funk) here takes the shape of sweat and wet used dish cloth. I really had a sensation of chewing on a dish cloth that was used to wipe a lot of stuff over many days. I dont know what our good friends at Mikkeller were trying to do here, but I cant believe that what I drank is what they had in mind. A really strange ugly mess. I did not finish my bottle, something that have rarely happened with a Mikkeller beer, and I had a lot of their beers. Not a nice way to celebrate Easter. Also Im not much of a religious person but Im pretty sure in the bible it says that Jesus had a little too much wine when he asked his disciples to paint eggs when he rises from the dead.

jikvig (269) - NORWAY - APR 1, 2011
A redish brown with a really nice, creamy head. Aroma is funky funk, almost a sausage aroma (spekemor in Norway). Not the biggest nose, but interesting. Some sherry notes on it aswell. Flavour is bigger than the nose, with taste of dried fruit, raisin alitte nutty. Big taste, low bitternes and good lenght. Summary; Very, very interesting, and very good! (1 glass will feel you up)
