Grabbed at Funkwerks back in August personally. Had it on draft at the brewery and actually found it better out of the bottle.

A- Mostly clear mid golden pour to a few pint glasses. A white, thick creamy head forms over two fingers with good retention leaving a medium ring. Lacing is a mix of webs and spots.

S- Fruity and spicy Saison yeast and hop driven aroma. Notes of pepper, dried pineapple, mango, apricot, coriander, lemon orange zest and cooking herbs.

T- Tropical fruits up front with each sip quickly followed by the resident Saison yeast spiciness. Mango, tangerine, orange, dried pineapple leads up to peppercorn, straw, herbal, floral and zesty yeast.

MF- Light to medium bodied with a spritzy crisp and silky creamy body. Carbonation is high as it should be promoting the delicate flavors. Finishes slightly warm and medium bitterness.

Tropic indeed. Actually feels more so than the sample I had on draft at the brewery. Tropical fruits paired nicely with hefty Saison yeast.

From an 11.2 ounce bottle into a snifter.

There's a monstrous, pale white foamy head on this brew that the snifter can barely contain. Hazy orange with blonde hues in the body and a visible film of yeast. Some carbonation is visible. The head persists lovely and scatters lace everywhere. 4.25

Citrus meets fresh lilies on the aroma. There's sweet maltiness and bubblegum, and a bright floral burst. 4.1

Bubblegum city. Sweet, floral, citrusy, with a taste of caramel. There's a grassy flavor towards the finish. 4.1

Sweet, creamy, and pleasant to drink. It's medium-bodied but drinks lighter. The finish is semi-dry and free of any bitterness. 4.25

Such an excellent brew. It's simply good as hell. 4.18

On tap at falling rock.

Hazy gold with a fluffy and persistent white head.

Holy cow, one of the fruitiest beers I've smelled. It gives it's name due respect. Mango, pineapple, orange, and passion fruit. Extremely aromatic.

Heavy mango and orange taste. Funky and peppery finish.

Sticky and medium body. Moderate carbonation.

I loved this. The aroma is really bright and juicy.

4.12/5  rDev +4.6%

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.
