Clear honey-color with some orange. Translucent and flat looking. Large soapy white head settles down to a few bubbles.

Nose is bananas and some citrus hops. Maybe a little bit bready. Average. Slightly Belgian-ey.

Taste is syrupy and medicinal. Stale hops. Ethanol and turpentine. Really not very pleasant. Not picking up any saison qualities.

Unfortunately not a great beer.

From notes: 9/6/12

A very pretty beer. Clear and golden with a relatively large white bubbly foam atop.

Heavy spices on the nose, clove in particular. Under the overwhelming spices are hints of yeast. Still, this smells great. Some fruity, too.

Taste follows suit, however the spices to seem a bit too much. The clove is too strong and overpowers any fruity esters.

A relatively light body for this size of beer, carbonated well, though.

Overall, the spices seemed to get carried away here. Funkwerks, still, is always more than worth trying.

Served on-draught into a 330ml snifter at the Funkwerks taproom. Reviewed from notes. Serving volume was 4 oz as part of a tasting flight (which as a whole was rather disappointing).

A: Pours a half finger head of slight thickness and cream, and decent retention. Colour is a cloudy peach.

Sm: Orange, mango, and light apricot. The fruit esters are really all me broken nose detects. A mild strength aroma, but a pleasant one.

T: Mango, slight orange, and a clean subtle barley foundation. To its credit, its malt-aversive. I fancy it though it isn't horribly complex. Nicely refreshing. Quite pleasant and really well balanced. Pretty well built, if strange for the style.

Mf: Smooth and wet, complementing the flavours. I'd like it better if it were crisp. It's aptly carbonated.

Dr: The high ABV isn't detectable and it's of pretty nice quality. I'd have it again, especially at this price. Quite refreshing and enjoyable all around. Certainly quaffable, but likely not sessionable.
