look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance is hazy gold with a medium bubbled, sloppy white head leaving some foamy.

Smell is on the lighter side, a bit of lime zest.

Taste is very elegant and classic. Nice subtle esters, some tropicals, spice, with a firm herbal bitter snap. Very nice subtle bubblegum note as well. Very delicious.

Mouthfeel is light, bone dry, crisp but not sharp.

Drinkability is high, an outstanding saison, one of the best domestic offerings I've had.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Picked up a 750 ml bottle at the end of March from Total Wine for $11.99. No freshness date but it was received at TW on 8-19-2013.

Beer poured orange with a huge billowy white head that is long lasting and leaving lacing behind.

Nose is yeasty with hints of light fruits.

Taste is apple, pear, lemon, and pepper.

Mouthfeel is dry, smooth, yet carbonated enough to be quite refreshing.

Overall this brew rocks! This is the second brew i have had from Funkwerks and both have been totally impressive. It is a bit pricey but as they say you get what you paid for...well mostly in the beer world!
