3/5 rDev -26.8%
750ml bottle, bottled on 10/21/2013. Poured into an unlabeled snifter today, 1/20/2014.
App- cloudy yellow with orange hue, very effervescent white head requiring some time to pour. Lots of retention and lacing. Very pretty.
Smell- crisp non-descript tartness with no hint of fruit character. Yeast and associated spiciness. Floral character. Boring.
Taste- Crackers, slight spiciness, pepper. A little bit of butter. Not that much going on.
Mouthfeel- Thinner bodied, solid carbonation. A bit watery. Very dry finish.
Overall- Not that interesting, nothing stands out while drinking this beer.

4.05/5 rDev -1.2%
My wife got me this for my birthday and it was much appreciated. Actually split this over turkey dinner on Christmas Eve, and thought it went well with the bird and some of our other fare.
Used kind of a tall, stemmed water glass for this one, like what you see at hotel conferences. It's a go to for me when I do saisons. Bottle has a big black label that just says SAISON on it in green - no messing around there. Pours a dim yellow with massive fluffy head and more cloud the further into the bottle you get.
Aroma is nice and tart, sweet and citrusy, with mineral, bubblegum and tropical fruit. Flavor is tart and sweet, with almost an underlying butteriness to it, and a lightly bitter finish. Mouthfeel is light to medium, light to medium carbonation, and has a bit of an uplifting airiness to it that feels refreshing.
This is what saison is all about. Great offering from Funkwerks.
