750ml brown bottle with no freshness date though there is a suggestion of cellaring this beer for no more than 2 years.

Look: Perfectly clear pale golden color, amazing display of froth and lace

Smell: Asian pear, fresh baked pita bread, dragon fruit, slightly earthy, nutty yeast, herbal, peppery phenols, very aromatic

Taste: Dry malt backbone, smooth, slight juiciness, chalky yeast, grapenuts, spicy, crackers, hay, light pepperiness, very dry finish

So flavorful with out being over the top, truly a well honed Saison that seriously rivals many of the originals from Belgium & France.

On tap at The Mayor in Ft. Collins. Excellent beer! Great depth for an easy drinking beer.

Funkwerks - Saison (750ml ---> Stemless wine glass : 6.8% ABV)

Pours a deeper gold/orangish color with a slight hazy, fogginess to it and a nice bubbly 2 inch head with astounding retention and many steady streams of carbonation rising from the bottom... Detecting a little citrus on the nose, nothing overly forward though, with some earthy, grassy notes hidden beneath those - and a healthy head STILL residing after about 10 minutes of resting... Initially it's lemony with spicy traces showing up here and there, followed by a pleasant straw/grassy taste in the finish with a small bitter bite for a little complexity... An extremely nice, light mouthfeel to this beer, with the heavy carbonation lending to an almost creaminess... It took drinking a fair amount of this brew to see any lacing, as the head was prominent for an exceptional amount of time... A decent amount of lacing remains, compiled mostly of considerably larger bubbles... The earthy and spicy notes in this beer give great balance to the "brighter" aspects in this well crafted ale... Another good brew - Cheers!!

Poured on-tap at the brewery and served in a tulip, the beer is a hazy, bright gold coloring with a foamy, sparse, white head. Nose of toasted grain, coriander, subtle farmhouse funk, tart notes, clove, and all spice. Flavors are toasted grain forward, with lemon grass herbal notes, another dose of farmhouse funk, and tart citrus notes. Light and crisp in mouth, with an effervesced, funky, tart aftertaste. Spiced, sweet linger. Nice and refreshing.
