REVIEW: Funk Dungeon Hop Bretta by Abbeydale Brewery by Alex

Hi Alex here,

Abbeydale Brewery is a brewery (bet you didn’t know that) located in Sheffield, that has been around for a surprisingly long time of 22 years.

Funk Dungeon Mosaic by Abbeydale Brewery

Funk Dungeon Hop Bretta by Abbeydale Brewery is one of the 3 in the Funk Dungeon “series”, the one I had tried was the single hop version containing the Mosaic hop, the others are El Dorado hop and Wild Plum Ale.

So onto the beer, and some great news for kombucha lovers, as it has a very similar flavour to it, with a slight bitterness and dryness to it, but it does not end there. I’ve already mentions this beer has the mosaic hop, and I am pretty sure they decided to jump dump the whole months supply as it is very prominent, but it is up to you whenever that’s a good thing or not is up to you, I quite liked it.

The beer also has flavours of peaches and apple peel which work quite nicely in this beer. Another surprise in this beer is a slight “mineraliness” to it, it works but… it also kind of doesn’t.

Overall a relatively decent beer, definitely something worth trying, but note it also is not a beer you can drink pint after pint, a can of 330ml is just the right amount.

100% tries to do something different compared to others.
