A - Poured out a cloudy, golden yellow color with a two-finger, white head of bubbly foam. It left some sudsy trails of lace on the glass.

S - It smelled fairly spicy with coriander notes. Nice cracked wheat presence, too.

T - Good spicy/yeasty bite up front. Cracked wheat and grains add some sweetness. There is a mild lemon flavor.

M - It was crisp and crackled on the tongue. A medium bodied ale with a dry finish.

O - This is really good. Another great brew from Funkwerks.

#267 of 2100 ... Poured into a tulip glass

T - Ginger, lemon zest and some honey along with spices.

M - Light body, highly carbonated. Just effervescent to the max.

[Best served in a Tulip glass]

The pour was a murky pale yellow with an average sized (1-2 finger) white creamy head that reduced to a thin cap, which produced excellent sheets of lacing.

The aroma was of a mild bread malt with a strong presence of a funky horse blanket Belgian yeast and had notes of citrus (lemon peel), coriander and some light fruity esters (banana and apple).

The taste was rather yeasty with a mild hint of a fruit from the onset and finished with a strong wheat flavor that had notes of coriander and a mild citrus peel bitterness. The flavor lasted only a short while after the initial swallow with a nice spicy yeast taste that hung on a bit longer.

Mouthfeel was light in body and somewhat watery in texture with a solid medium carbonation.

Overall a fantastic Witbier that possessed a nice mild spicy citrus presence along with a light and enticing fruitiness. Simply enjoyable...

I guess I'm a bit jaded towards witbier. This was a good one but it was hard to get excited about. Floral right from the start (chamomile and lavender). Bit of lemongrass, citrus, and cut grass. Dry finish, mild bitterness. Some black pepper and funk. Pleasant yeastiness. Twang of sour at the end. Flavorful and rather untamed.

Poured from bottle 0840/2100 to tulip the beer arrives an opaque yellow golden color with a nice 3 finger white bubbly he's with some retention and lacing. The aroma is a delicate Belgian yeast with a pleasant toast malt base. Similarly the flavor is a pleasant Belgian wit with yeast toast and earthy hop mild bitterness that lasts a while on the palette. Nice. Lighter bodies and well carbonated and clean. Overall another nice beer from funkwerks.

Thanks Herf for the bottle! I've thoroughly enjoys all Funkwerks prior to this, so I'm looking forward.

Pours a light, cloudy, soft orange color. There is a LOT of carbonation in this. Bright white foam is crowning out of the glass. Aroma is light with coriander, spices, a slight bit of grapefruit and other citrus fruits and a slight hay note. The taste kicks it up a good notch. Bright citrus notes, biscuity malts with some wheaty bits, spices, and a slight hay taste. Much better than the aroma. The feel is good, crisp and with plenty carbonation. It never feels prickly, sharp or abrasive though. All in all, a very nice white.

Sampled October 2011
Excessively carbonated, I was able to get it easily into my glass, but it foams up and over in my glass multiple times before I end up with a stable Tripel Karmeliet tulip full of six-fingers worth of pale, just barely tan tinged froth. The beer is a hazy, pale straw color that shows an excitable carbonic stream of bubbles billowing up through it. The beer smells quite like coriander; earthy, spicy and citrusy. The citrus is from both the coriander, but also from citrus zest; the both contribute notes of Meyer Lemon, some fruity orange zest and perhaps even some fruity tangerine notes. There is a touch of dried, grassy, perhaps more rustically, hay like with a touch of pale cracker character; all towards the finish.

The carbonation combines with the citrus and coriander-citrus notes to provide a zippy quality to this beer. There is a clove like phenolic note that mixes with the citrus pith character that also adds a bit of sharpness as well as an almost, though not quite, soapy taste. The coriander character adds quite a bit of earthy-spiciness to this beer, it is sort of herbal like, perhaps providing a touch of bitterness (though the hops help contribute the light bitterness that is here); really though the combination of coriander and phenolics provides the sharpness and bite that is usually supplied by hops. The beer is slightly tart towards the finish, this is accentuated by the citrus notes, boosted by the ample carbonation.

This is quite a nice Wit, it has just enough rustic-ness to keep me interested, though I can’t help but wishing it had taken a touch more of a wild turn with more tartness, but that would make this take a significant step down a road that is not a standard Wit. This is an exceedingly enjoyable example of a Wit, but it also seems to make me realize that my taste-buds have come to expect a bit more from this style of beer; as far as a standard example of the style goes, this is about as good as it gets, better than any other standard one that I can remember.

cool brew from funkwerks. pours an insanely lively hazy white gold color with a hard to manage head frothing up. smells tangy like grapefruits and the yeast smell is strong. flavor is spicy and refreshing. not as fruity as the nose. really nice tart finish. the mouthfeel here was great, as carbonated as any beer ive ever had, super super bright, almost like a soda in the mouth. it really works well for such a light but complicated beer. everything funkwerks does is excellent and this is certainly no exception.
