From BeerAdvocate magazine Issue #77 (June 2013):
LOOK: Cloudy peach, healthy head and lacing
SMELL: Floral, fruity, cantaloupe, alcohol, bready
TASTE: Lively, creamy carbonation, light bodied, peaches, ginger, melon, pineapple, pear, esters, white pepper, bready, spicy, yeasty linger
We’re a bit skeptical when people slap the word “Imperial” in front of a style these days, but not with this beer. Funkwerks has done a great job in punching up the Saison style with a ton of complex fruity characters (thanks to using New Zealand Rakau hops), while keeping drinkability and finish in tact. Perhaps a bit too yeasty, but damn fine drinking here.

Bomber bottle with brewed/bottled on dating. Purchased at the source.
Hazed and lovely lookin' under a frothy and rocky off white head that lasts nicely.
Fruity nose with ripe melon coming forward
Tasty, complex and thoroughly saison in character. Fruit, spice, yeast, crafty goodness.
Love the style and love this beer.
Please consider distribution to the NYC area

On tap at Breckenridge at the Ballpark in Denver. Pours deep orange colored with a small off white head. Aroma of tropical fruits as expected, some light funk, and a hint of spice. Flavor is on the sweeter side with lots of bubble gum notes and some tropical fruits, sweet wheaty malts, and very little zesty saison like barnyard yeast going on here. Medium plus bodied and medium carbonation. Overall I found this to be only OK, but not bad.
