Night of the Funk

A-Pours a hazy, milky pale yellow. Thin head. Difficult to assess the head with the small pour.

S-The nose was very, very faint. A bit of Brett and wheat. Lightly tart. Really soft.

T-The flavor is a far cry from the nose. It jumps on the palate. Powerfully tart, especially for such a pint sized brew. Limes and Brett. Hay and wheat. Sourdough bread.Really unique.

M-I want to substitute this for water.

O /D-The nose was shy but the flavor really crazy and I enjoyed it a lot. A ton of flavor at 3%. What a cool beer.

Served in a bottle at Sunset Grill & Tap in Allston, MA

A: Pours a very hazy pale straw yellow with light to moderate amounts of visible carbonation and lemon yellow + golden yellow highlights. The beer has a three finger tall dense foamy white head that slowly reduces to a medium sized medium thick cap with a very thin film surrounding it and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of tartness/sourness that I have come to expect for the style along with some definite notes of the brett (slightly funky sour). Underneath there are lighter notes of lemon, wheat, and grass.

T: Upfront this beer has a moderate to strong flavor of lemon tartness over the top of light to moderate flavors of wheat and something almost grassy. Then the brett funky sourness comes out and is moderately strong. Overall this beer is not too tart but there is a definitely sourness present.

M: Light bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of carbonation. Moderate amounts of acidic prickliness.

O: As someone who really enjoys this style and sourness to a beer in general, I am impressed with the amount of flavors packed into this beer considering the low ABV - I could drink many of these in a day. So refreshing!

330ml Bottle received in trade with Phyl21ca - thanks!

Appearance - Hazy yellow colour with a large size fizzy white coloured head. It's hard to make out the amount of carbonation showing and there is not much lacing. The head lasted for 3-4 minutes.

Smell - Breads/grains, lemons, yeast/brett

Taste & Mouth - There is an above average amount of carbonation and I can taste bread/grains mixed with some tart lemon/citric notes. It ends with a tart lemony/citric brett aftertaste

Overall - Lots of mouth puckering sour flavour going on. But it still remains quite drinkable and refreshing even. It's a little one dimensional taste wise, but still a solid beer.

Bottle from Aug.2011

Lightly hazed pale blonde, one finger of white head that went to nothing in seconds, no lace at all. Smell is full on funk, brett, fruity, lemons, acidic and almost lambic like on the nose, seriously funky stuff. Taste is funky and very tart, apple, lemon and other fruits as well, some brett mustiness, acidic and sour with a suprisingly bready malt aftertaste. High carbonation, dry and lightly syrupy. I had no idea how good this was going to be, had no idea what this even was at first, really impresive stuff here.
