4.5/5  rDev +12.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Bottle says 7.5% ABV / 1yr cellar limit. This should be consumed fresh!!!

A: Semi cloudy, thick billowing snowy white head with spotty sticky lacing at first, but doesn't seem to stick. Color is golden/coppery orange. Lots of head on the first pour. This beer is definitely carbonated to style. Love it!

S: Smell is intoxicating. Lots of peppery belgian spice and phenols. Hints of lemon and citrus. Bitterness is mild, but peppery and earthy. This actually smells quite amazing.

T&M: Carbonation is spot on for the style. Mouthfeel starts off prickly and bubbly, and finishes smooth and clean. Lots of flavor here. Pepper, earthy bitterness, lemon zest, mild citrus, floral. Awesome. Really drinkable. 3711 yeast is a workhorse and this is a prime example of what it can yield.

O: Love it. This is a SERIOUSLY delicious Saison. Alcohol is undetectable, flavor and aroma are intoxicating and leave me wanting more. I polished off a whole 750ml bottle and could easily drink another. This is a prime example of an American made Belgian Saison done right. Funkwerks - you rock. I will see you again soon :)

3.86/5  rDev -3.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Bottle: Poured a cloudy beige color ale with a large dirty white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of spicy ginger notes with rustic malt and fruity zesty hops. Taste is a great mix between some rustic malt with quite dry aftertaste and some spicy ginger notes with some fruity and zesty hops. Body is full with limited filtration and good carbonation. I really enjoyed this beer but I would have personally prefer less ginger.
