After the success of beer number 5, I decided to stick with The Bruery for beer 6.
MOTHER FUNKER is another Provisions Series ale. This American Wild Ale has a 6% ABV.
Mother Funker is a sour blonde ale that has been aged for several years in barrels predominately used for Chardonnay. Mother Funker is a seriously sour beer, perhaps the most sour beer we’ve produced so far. Bursting with citrus, funk, and a hint of white vinegar, Mother Funker is for those who like their sours with more sour.
The beer pours almost the same color as the label: a light lemon/honey color. It’s very clear with a few tiny bubbles floating around. A ring of foam tops the glass.
When you think of certain styles of beer you automatically imagine the smells/tastes associated with those styles. This beer smells like a Blonde Ale. White grapes and lemon zest are the most dominate flavors in the nose. There may be some faint wine scents, but nothing really prominent.
Taste is that of a sour Blonde Ale! Sour white wine, white grapes, vines, and a hint of vinegar. Lemon comes through at the end and cuts into the tartness.
Mouthfeel is light and dry (like a wine).
A lot of times when I order a sour I’m looking for face-punching tartness, this is the opposite of that. Mother Funker is a balanced sour (if such a thing every existed). I could drink a lot of this beer.
Overall: 8.5 out of 10
As an AMERICAN WILD ALE: 8 out of 10
