What the Funk - Second Review

Appearance - Slightly hazy golden orange, single finger head that dissipated leaveing a decent amount of lacing in the glass.

Aroma - Tart fruity aroma, soft phenolic brett presence with hints of cardamom and leather and possibly a wisp of butterscotch

Taste - Malty up front with a nice subtle brett flavor (leather, spice, funk), soft phenolic finish that lingers long after you swallow.  Slight hints of oxidation with an ever so subtle butterscotch flavor if you look for it

Mouthfeel - Medium-high carbonation, leaving the body nicely full and round.  Very spritzy

Drinkability - This beer is starting to come into its prime.  The fruitiness has grown since my last tasting, and really makes the beer quite good.

Notes/Thoughts - This beer has evolved quite a bit over the past 10months or so, quite a bit more than I expected it to.  The fruitiness has increased quite a bit, and the bretty/phenolic finish has become much more subtle.  Interestingly the carbonation was quite stable for the first yeast or so it was in the bottle, but it has increased in the past year quite a bit.  The slight hints of butterscotch really meld all the flavors together very well.
