COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Tasting Notes:

Kosmic Mother Funk Grand Cru is tart, funky, and complex with notes of dark fruits, cherry, cocoa & vanilla. The addition of a small amount of Belgian candi sugar adds a bit of smoothness and hint of sweetness to this beer.

Notes from the Brewers:

•This one-of-a-kind Belgian ale is fermented with multiple microorganisms including Brettanomyces, Lactobacillus and other wild critters found in the environment of our 150-year old Boston brewery.
•The unique yeasts impart layers of spicy, fruity, & bright tart notes to the beer. Aged in our Hungarian oak tuns, the porous character of the wood allows air to slowly seep in during aging creating micro-oxidation that smoothes any harsh flavors.
•Grand Cru often denotes a vintage of the highest quality or ‘the best of the best’. This release has been aging in our Barrel Room for just over a year.
•Kosmic Mother Funk is the soul of our Barrel Room Collection, blended to varying degrees in each of our five Belgian brews creating a distinct & complex character.

Rating #2513 - 2016.05.04 - Sample at BrewExpo during CBC in Philadelphia. .Hazy reddish brown pour, medium white head. Aroma is super bretty, lots of yeast on the nose - sour cherries, wildflowers, honey, soapyness. Mouthfeel is clean, medium carbonation. Quite complex, the sourness is tempered with a fair amount of body, and lots of tart cherry. Stupid Tasty Flanders.

On tap at DRBT. Pours a dark copper with small frothy beige head that lasts. The aroma is oak, leather, vinegar, dark fruit. Thin body, similar flavors to nose, acidic, very sour, enjoyed this.

[2/4/17] Draught/Bottle at Extreme Beer Fest in Boston. Brown. Wood, cellar, fruitiness, sweetish-sour.

Looks like plum-colored glass. A few bubbles float on top. Smells like sour dark fruit and tastes the same but the flavor is weaker than the aroma. A great fruit-tasting-like beer nonetheless, if that’s your cup of tea.

On tap at oc ep, pours a murky brown / amber with a thin khaki head. Sweet aroma of brown sugar and cherries, light yeast. Very sweet, brown sugar and caramel with an underlying tart and sour. Not bad, pretty sweet.

FROTHINGSLOSH (7929) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 12, 2016
Sampled on draft at the Headkeeper this beer poured a black color with a small foamy beige head that faded and left no lacing. The aroma was tart and sour with red wine and vinegar notes. The flavor was tart and sour with vinegar, soy sauce, cherry, red wine and a light yeasty note. Long finish. Medium body but undercarbonated.

Draft pour. The beer is a dark brown with a khaki head. The aroma has strong acidity. Some sweet notes and herbal acidity. Medium body and high carbonation.

Draft to taster at Cincy beerfest 16. Pours a hazy caramel brown color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet, caramel malt, brown sugar, tart black cherry character, additional dark fruit, wood, vinegar, lactic sour notes, dark caramel, mild funk, just a bit too much acetic character for me.

Draft pour at Special Brews. Darkest of brown pours with almost no head. Brown sugar, sour cherry aroma. Light balsamic, cherry, big berry flavor. Smooth finish. Excellent.
