1 pt 9.4 fl oz brown glass bottle served in a snifter, reviewed from notes:

A - Pours a murky banana yellow/golden color with 2.5 fingers of fizzy white head. Retention is very good. Inviting.

S - Lemon, clean unrefined barley and pilsner malt, bland yeast, light tart notes, and plain fruity hops notes. I don't actually find too many brett notes; I'm a bit let down by this.

T - Follows the nose closely, unfortunately. The bretts contribute a very light tart funkiness, though it's by no means evident or apparent. Heavy lemon and a strange green apple note that I don't like too much. The hops are similarly simple. I'm really disappointed by this one.

M - Light bodied, airy, highly carbonated, and dry. This, at least, is done very well.

D - I won't be having this again. Ridiculously overpriced, simple, and really just an average beer. It could be good, though in it's current state it's no more than average.

funkwerks can do no wrong in my book, but this isnt my personal favorite of theirs. rumored to be an accident with the crooked stave operation, but who knows. pours an insanely carbonated hazy golden honey color with a rapidly rising bone white head. smells a bit yeasty, tropical fruity, sour cherry, and a scaled back brett aroma, less than i thought it might be. flavor is very light, exemplary golden ale. lots of tropical fruit in the finish, and just a touch of sour brett happening there. almost no sweetness at all, and in fact a white winey finish. no hops to speak of, and a mouthfeel that i find detracts from the overall experience. just mega carbonated, makes it go by too quickly and washes out some of the subtle complexities that might otherwise present themselves. very dry as well, which works here. light body. overall a good beer, i will always like what they make, but this one doesnt touch the dark prophet or the tropic king.

Excited to try a new funkwerks brew! Bottle #0133 of 2100 poured to Duvel tulip. The beer arrives a very hazy orange color with a nice 2 finger white bubbly head, good retention and lacing throughout. The nose is rather mutes really and doesn't have a lot of appeal. Brett funk, hints of citrus and perhaps toast but really not much. It's almost rancid in character. The flavor loses the putrid character in the nose and provides a light fruit flavor with citrus and nectarine qualities, mild bitterness. A mild sweetness from the malt. The funk of the brett again is most dominant. It doesn't seem to work really that well together. Something is a bit off. Likewise the mouthfeel is off, fairly medium bodied but the carbonation deters from the experience. Overall, a disappointment really. Funkwerks makes great beer, this just might be a bad batch.

Nice yellow hazey hue, with a sticky white head that lines the glass till the last drop. Stinky, horseblanket smell. Sour up front, blue cheese hints, (in my opinion). Not too sour, but just sour enough. Grapefruit hints; I also tasted a slight apricot essence to this beer. Good beer, have to like the brett infused beers though.

750ml bottle, #151/2100. Pours clear straw yellow with a monstrous rocky white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is doughy malts and floral fruity brett with some funk and a little band-aid.

The flavor is sweet bready malts and some slightly tart fruit with some earthy funk and a little brett. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and a bit watery.

Overall, like the Elder Brett I liked this better fresher. Not as fruity and bretty as I remembered.
