4.14/5  rDev +5.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Picked up a bottle at Total Wine in mid-November for $11.99. Rec'd at TW on 8-19-13. Not sure of the bottling date. I had sampled this at the Peoria charity beer festival in which despite my wrecked palate this beer stood up and said try me again when your palate is clean!

Beer poured golden orange with a beautiful soap bubble head that is hanging around nicely.

Nose is yeasty and dry, with some hints of mango.

Taste is mango, peach, white pepper, with a pretty dry finish.

Mouthfeel is very smooth, nicely carbonated and light on the palate.

Overall this is an outstanding brew, definitely not your classic saison but perhaps a hybrid saison-tripel. Definitely worth the splurge!

3.8/5  rDev -3.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: a golden orange color. a huge, two plus finger, foamy white head that sticks around for ages and leaves a sticky lacing. completely opaque.

Smell: candi sugar, belgian yeast, fruity flavors.

Taste: opens up with a little bit of bitterness. fades to a light candi sugar and a strong belgian yeast. some very light tropical fruit notes. some alcohol

Mouthfeel: some bitterness up front. strong carbonation but still very dry.

Overall: a well brew and tasty saison, but not quite my favorite. I was hoping the fruity notes were a bit stronger.

4.09/5  rDev +4.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

A: golden blond with a huge rocky white head. Great retention and nice overall look to it.
S: lots of pineapple, apricot, banana, honey and a little fresh funkiness.
T: banana, ginger and clove, grassy hops, light funk. Flavor is more spicy than fruity but shows some pineapple/apple flavors. Finishes slightly dry with a touch of bitterness.
M: medium to full body. Very creamy feel despite heavy carbonation.

First beer from Funkwerks and am impressed. A little heavy/creamy to be refreshing but it went nicely with spicy Asian food. Thanks for the opp, Nick.
