Tasting Notes

Kosmic Mother Funk is a one-of-a-kind Belgian ale fermented with multiple micro-organisms including Brettanomyces, Lactobacillus and other wild critters found in the environment of our 150 year old brewery. KMF is aged in large oak barrels which impart unique flavors into the KMF as it develops its flavors for over a year. Wild yeast and different bacteria in the tuns impart unique spicy, fruity, and bright tart characters to the beer. The porous character of the oak also allows air to slowly seep into the beer during aging and this long slow micro-oxidation through the wood smooths out harsh flavors.

KMF is the backbone of all of our Barrel Room Collection beers and is blended, at varying amounts, into each of the five Belgian inspired brews that make up this collection. Its wild, funky character creates a new depth and spectrum of complex flavors from earthy and spicy to floral and sweet.

To showcase the unique character of this brew, we’re introducing Kosmic Mother Funk Grand Cru this year for the first time. On its own, KMF is tart, funky, and complex with notes of dark fruits, cherry, cocoa & vanilla. To bring together these flavors we’ve added a small amount of Belgian candi sugar to add a bit of smoothness and hint of sweetness to this vintage.
