Samuel Adams Kosmic Mother Funk
On tap @ Pinocchio's Restaurant, Media, PA

I was starting to worry that Boston Beer wasn't keeping up with the changes in the beer world these days, thinking that maybe they'd fall behind because people have tired of their regular beers, and even their seasonal offerings, but this changes everything!!! WHAT A BRILLIANT BEER! It's got a lot of funkiness to it. It's got lactobacillus, it's got Brettanomyces, and it's got a bit of swagger to it as well, yet it's all tightly wrapped up in a clean, focused, and still malty package. It's sour/sweet with lots of red fruit, dark skinned fruit, and wet leather. Remarkably drinkable, interesting, and complex.

Apple and lots of funk in the nose. Quite sour on the palate with lots of orchard fruit. Well-carbonated and drinkable. Overall an enjoyable beer.

Served in a goblet at the Union Brewhouse in Weymouth.

Appearance: A one finger off white head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is an amber brown color with no vision of anything. Spotty lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Funky, hay, bready, cherries or raspberries , rubber tires, and some sweetness.

Taste: Very funky and tart, some fruit sweetness, bready, and more funk.

Mouthfeel: Tart, bready, funky, Medium bodied, a little dry, and medium to high carbonation.

Overall: Nice stuff, but a bit more funkier than one would like. A little more sweetness would be good, but it did get better as it warmed up.

32 ounce growler
Served in a tulip glass

L - It pours dark brown in color. When held to the light it takes on a ruddy appearance. There is virtually no head. An aggressive pours yielded a few tan bubbles.

S - It has a strong tart smell. I get some vinous notes and a little apple cider vinegar.

T - The taste is very tart, almost mouth puckeringly sour. The wine and vinegar I smelled come through in the taste. It definitely leaves a sour taste in my mouth.

F - Moderate and very low carbonation.

O - A rare find. It was cool to taste a key additive to some of Sam Adams beers. One glass of this was plenty though. It has intense flavor, not all of it necessarily good.
