Orange tan and beautiful in its clear, sparkling appearance, funkified head and lace due to careful bartender pour, and not from a bottle.

An excellent selection to go with Beau Jo's pizza, especially served in a great full sized snifter.

Spice and peppery, white and pink peppercorns (subjective, my palate ain't that precise, but the complexity is beyond that of mere black pepper). Funk and dank are present in a moderate amount, perfect for a guest tap at a pizza joint.

Not funkwerks' funky-est, but still an excellent brew.

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
