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.

Serving type: on-tap

750ml bottle. Pours a hazy yellow with a bi fluffy white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is lemoney citrus fruit, chamomile, flowers, and some spices (corriander). Very nice and refreshing.

The flavor is saison earthy funk with a little sweet fruit and a little spice. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with some sharp carbonation.

Overall, a very nice and refreshing saison. Probably the favorite I've had from a very interesting up and coming brewery.

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.

We took a trip up to Fort Collins last week to hit a few breweries. Sadly quite a few were closed so we hit this one out of necessity; fortunately for us, this one was quite good across the board. Poured a somewhat cloudy pale yellow color with a big white head. Aromas bubblegum, orange peel and lemons. Light bodied and refreshing, with flavors of Belgian yeast, spices and tart citrus.

The beer was lively in carbonation, slightly cloudy but still warm in color while altogether enticing. Had in a line up with four other Funkwerks beers, this was the most distinct in the lineup without trying to steal the show.

The presence of spices and citrus were gracefully layered without ever overwhelming the distinct saison yeast character. Aromas of dried orange peels, steeped green tea leaves and tart citrus fruits were in abundance and made for a very fresh and clean smelling experience.

Similar citrus play on the palate without being too sweet or 'wheaties' based. I liked the slightly lighter mouthfeel it gave, if it was more forced with candied flavors or sat with a richer body I believe the level of drinkability would not have been as nice as it was. Such a bright and aromatically enticing beer. I'm wishing for bottles to come soon, making this the perfect summer slamming hammock beer.

Any saison fan would find comfort in this beer. VERY excited with Funkwerks and their direction, can't wait too see what comes out of the few barrels that are silently working their magic.
