4.25/5  rDev +5.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

750 ml capped bottle with white label. There is a lot of useful information on the label like ingredients used to make it, the open fermentation process, a website, serving suggestion, and cellar limit (9 mos.) but NO DATE!

Moving on, I pour it into a goblet (because I don't have a goblet) and notice it's slightly hazy golden yellow color. It has thick white head and settles slowly but no lacing.

The aroma is right on for a wit with all sorts of great citrus zest (oranage and grapefruit are actually listed) as well as the coriander and ginger. Lots of depth here and a lot to enjoy.

Flavor is sweet up front with a yellow cake-like character. It then leads into a lemon-tart middle with a bit of that Belgian yeast coming forward. It finishes crisp and dry with a nice aftertaste.

Mouthfeel is light in body and perfectly carbonated. A great beer with which to welcome Spring.

Great flavor, depth, and balance... just like their saison. Worth seeking out.

Reviewed on 7/25/11

Poured in to a tulip. Waaay over-carbed. Bottle foamed over and out and with an easy pour in to the glass, the glass foamed over as well. Egg-white like egg with a hazy, straw colored body.

Smell was oreange, grainy and a mild sweetness. Some light spiceness.

Taste had very good flavor. Hints of orange and citrus. Some good ginger flavor. Light spiceness with a mild sweetness. Slightly graing. Very refreshing.

Mouthfeel was medium/light body with extremely high carbonation. Dry finish.

Very good overall with high drinkability. No abv signs and mellow flavors.

4.38/5  rDev +8.7%

750ml bottle purchased from Wilbur's in Ft. Collins, around $8. Into a NB Globe. Raising this one in honor of Pierre Célis, without his work, beers of this nature wouldn't be available.

A: Pours a slightly turbid lemon yellow color with an enormous dense, rocky white head, a significant amount of carbonation moves from the nucleation point aiding the retention. Where the head has started to fall there are enormous gobs of lacing.

S: Quite impressive, lots of fresh clean citrus smells from the grapefruit, and orange zest, a decent amount of spice in here as well. Lemony wheat malt really shows its head. A lot of spice here, smells quite floral as well.

T: Interesting beer, again a nice amount of clean citrus up front with a slightly tart amount of lemon from the wheat malt, but there is a nice lingering spiciness on the end of this beer. Label notes ginger in here, and it definitely stands out on this finish, with a quite gingery finish. Quite floral as well. The finish is dry and even a bit peppery. Very tasty.

M: Surprising amount of body here, but there is enough carbonation to more than break it up. Finishes very dry, easily one of the drier beers I've had in some time.

O: Fantastic beer, complicated enough to satisfy just about any hardcore beer geek, but still accessible enough that it wouldn't turn anyone away from it. I was a little skeptical about seeing all the spices used in here, but they all complement each other incredibly well. Very enjoyable beer for the warmer months. Well done.

4.49/5  rDev +11.4%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Poured on tap into snifter.

A - Very gorgeous yellow orange, looks just like orange juice. Sudsy 2 finger head. Beautiful beer.

S - Smells of wheat, orange peel, lemon and some mild spice qualities.

T - Quite delicious. Lemon and orange hit you up front, and then it transforms into a mild spicy wheat flavor in the finish.

M - Decent mouthfeel, but I think perhaps a bit over-carbonated.

O - This is probably the best witbier I've tried so far and a very worthy addition to Funkwerks lineup!

look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: light barely unfiltered yellow color. Very light head.
S: amazing smell. The yeast is putting out a vanilla grass coriander and wheat smell.
T: citrus and coriander with a great yeast character that adds a bit of sourness.
M/D: light bodied smooth and overwhelms the mouth with flavors. Very drinkable session beer.
