BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUN 17, 2014
Corked bottle: Pours a deep brown with amber highlights, lasting head. Lovely combo of barnyard wildness and toasty dark ale. Wonderfully complex yet still restrained. The 2nd best brew I have from Prairie.

16.06.2014, 0,75l bottle @ BBGTC tasting:
Big fizzy shortlasting head. Aroma is kind of funky, mild brett, overripe crowberries, barnyard, dark malts, mold, sour coffee, tea, spices, hints of licorice. Taste is slightly dry, heather, mild brett, hay, paper, minerals, sour coffee, spices. Medium bitterness, slightly harsh mouthfeel. Fair enough.

Bottle 750ml @ ClubGonzo
Pours dark brown with a beige head. Aroma has notes of malt, chocolate, funky, mango and pineapple. Taste is medium sweet and light to medium bitter with a long slightly roasty, berry and funky finish. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

Scopey (14241) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 14, 2014
Bottle thanks to Colin. It pours opaque dark brown with a thick light tan head. The nose is earthy, toasty, ash, dark fruits, jammy berry, light barnyard and candy. The taste is toasty, earthy, barnyard, jammy fruits, roasted malt, cocoa, charred wood, ash, sherbet, citrus peel and some acidity. Full body and high carbonation. Pretty punchy stuff. I am not sure the balance is quite there, but I enjoyed it anyway.

NeoHippie2 (1074) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUN 12, 2014
Black pour with a big tan head. Big time funky aromas with notes of spice and plenty of hops. Flavor is way too hoppy and over the top funky. There are some subtle clove and cinnamon notes that are trying desperately to come out but are just crushed by everything else going on. Finishes bone dry. This brew was a mess, I cant decide what they were trying to do here. Maybe it cellars well but as is, no thank you.

Bottle. A- Funky, dank, musty, sweet. A- Black color, dark liquid, huge tan frothy head. T- Funky, slightly malty, slightly sweet, slightly sour. P- Medium body, average texture, high carbonation, astringent finish. O- With a name like Funky Galaxy, I should have known this was gonna be funky. The aroma reminded me of my grandmas basement. As it warmed, some chocolate tones seemed to appear, but this was still not was I was hoping for. Just not my thing.

As a so-called "Galaxy hopped black farmhouse ale," Funky Galaxy is probably the most unusual beer Ive had in a long-ass time. Pouring midnight black, this Farmhouse Ale looks more like an Imperial Stout. The head is just ridiculous - velvety, frothy, retentive, and brown. The smell proves that this beer is aptly named. Theres a whole lot of dank yeast funk that makes you think of basement or barnyard smells. It finds its way onto the tongue, too. Funky Galaxy has a strong yeast taste but its also countered by the fresh hops and rich malts. The hop bitterness is concealed but you can still pick up their subtle fruit flavors. The chocolatey notes from the malt help to mellow out the funk. For all of the lively carbonation and huge flavors, this Farmhouse Ale has a silky, refreshing mouthfeel. This ones an oddball, no doubt about that. Still, Funky Galaxy offers a whole lot of yeasty goodness and a fun range of flavors to explore.

MartinT (9765) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 22, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Raisins and earthy roasted notes tag along citrus and tropical fruit in this complex, fluffy brew.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam tops the cloudy dark brown.
-There is so much going on in this one its almost hard to find a dominating character and hang on to it.
-Bitterness is mild, leaving room for fruitiness and peppery spiciness.
-Drinkability is very high.
-Grape juice flavors are also discovered.

a, cest exactement le genre de bire bizarre que tu aimes ou que tu naimes pas, il ny a pas de juste milieu. Moi? Oh que jaime! Noire, opaque et couronne dune mousse beige qui ne tient pas tirer sa prsence, cet hybride entre une Saison et une Black IPA dgage des parfums de cuir, de gomme balloune et de pastis. Les bretts font un travail colossal tant au niveau olfactif quau got. Ceux-ci procurent donc une belle acidit en bouche, juste assez discrte pour ne pas camoufler les saveurs danis, le chocolat et la subtile torrfaction. Les houblons Galaxy relchent quelques saveurs fruites et herbaces, plus prsentes lorsque la bire tempre par contre. Une amertume trs fine se glisse en finale. Cest fucked up et cest bon.

1/V/14 - 50cl bottle @ ThirstyBirds place - BB: n/a (2014-459) Thanks to ThirstyBird for sharing the bottle!

Bit cloudy very dark beer, big aery to creamy beige head, pretty stable, very adhesive, leaving a nice lacing in the glass. Aroma: artificial brett all the way, something nasty, reminds me of latrines, damn dirty! MF: over carbonated, medium body. Taste: this is just nasty, I taste clams, bit salty, rotting stuff, artificial brett, pretty sour. Aftertaste: still dirty, artificial brett, pretty bitter, roasted malts, unpleasant brett flavours. Wow, what is this supposed to be?
