Mikkeller's Funky e*star is a wild fermented Belgian ale brewed in a similar vein as their It's Alive.
Compared to the It's Alive the Funky e*star is higher in alcohol and fuller in body.
If you are a fan of the wild ales then this one should be on your list. We only received 72 bottles so don't wait too long.
If you have had many Mikkeller beers then you know one thing. These guys are not afraid of experimenting.
This beer, adorned with a strip of bacon on the label, is brewed using the same recipe as their Beer Geek Breakfast Stout but with all the base malt replaced with smoked malt.
Only 4 pallets of this beer came into the US so we are quite lucky to have gotten our hands on the miniscule 5 cases we received. Staff is likely to drink this one down quickly so don't say I didn't warn you.
