Mikkeller – Funky e Star: Brewed in Denmark, this wild/sour are comes in at a strength of 9.39% abv and was poured into a snifter glass from a 12 oz bottle.
Aroma and Appearance: This craft beer pours a muddy brown water colour with minimal foam and lots of bubbles. The aroma was some bread, tart and acid.
Flavour: Metallic and tin like, with a touch of clove, bread and a hint of tartness, very thin and overall tastes kind of like bad water. Despite strength, cannot taste alcohol at all.
Overall Impression: Pretty crappy to be honest, literally muddy water flavour. I think where ever this was brewed, they didn’t let it develop enough before bottling it for this batch or something went wrong in transportation. Drain pour.
Rating: It was a total drain pour, 1/10, worst beer I have had. I gave it lots of chances to warm up and reveal flavour, but really it tasted like off flavours.
Food Pairing: A different beer or another bottle from a different batch.
I had high hopes for this, but it was so utterly disappointing I am a little afraid to buy another Mikkeller beer. This one had an expiry of 2019, so it wasn’t expired.
