Thanks to kubrick215 for sharing.

Pours a very hazy, dark golden orange color with banana like hues and a massive pillowy white head that takes forever to settle.  Seems over carbonated with large chunks of lace left behnd.  

Musty, funky aroma with earhty saison /farmhouse yeast and a really strong earthy brett presence.  Subtle citrus and tropical fruit that's comes to the forefront as it warms.   There's also some light fruit, notably banana, apple and pear countering the prominent must and funky bugs.  

Medium bodied with tight carbonation and a very strong dry, musty brett flavor that overpowers the other flavors.  After it warms and the palate adjusts, there is some more balance with funky farmhouse yeast, bread and citrus fruit notes.  Still, the wild bugs and funky yeast dominate with only faint hints of apple, pear and zesty orange peel.  This beer has the potential to be pretty good but it's a bit one dimensional and the carbonation level is way off, negatively affecting the flavor.

Right off the bat, this one gushed pretty bad. Pours murky yellow with more foam than beer on initial opening. Head died down to leave little retention.

Smells like brett. Really not much else. Maybe a few spicy Belgian yeast notes.

Pretty similar flavor. Generic saison characteristics overlayed with Brett. Not particularly complex or interesting and the spices along with brett leave an astringent aftertaste.

Light bodied and as previously mentioned way over carbonated which accentuated the astringency more.

Meh totally forgettable beer. The search for a Funkwerks beer I like is still ongoing.
