Picked up a 750 ml bottle in late March for $13.99. Total Wine Arrowhead received it on 11-11-13 but i could not discern a bottling date.

Beer poured golden with a beautiful white head that is leaving lacing behind.

Nose has hints of citrus and light malts.

Taste is lemon pepper with a nice light malt base.

Mouthfeel is legit belgian yeast strain, light and refreshing yet oh so smooth.

Overall this is a nice refreshing flavorful brew. Hard to believe that it is a 9.0 abv. This is the third solid brew i have had from Funkwerks, these folks are legit!

Deceit – Imperial Saison (9.0%) - Funkwerks (Colorado)
☆☆☆☆

App: Pours a slightly hazy lemon yellow with a nice one finger chalky white head that eventually settles, leaving massive amounts of dense lacing all the way up the glass. Some evident carbonation.

Smell: Aroma hints toward a Golden ale, with strong notes of banana, and a slight clove like spiciness coupled with a walnut maltiness which rounds out an otherwise sweet nose with some deeper aroma. Esters very noticeable, slightly sour as well. Hop aromas very minimal.

Taste: Toasted grainy sweetness comes together with fruity esters on the foretaste to create a flavor that transitions from banana pudding like heaviness to lemony tartness. One of those special beers that has distinct flavor evolution the longer you hold it on your palate. Even at 9% this beer goes down almost too easy. Hence the name.

Mouth: Light to medium bodied with significant carbonation that makes flavors dance across the tongue. Alcohol comes through a little more here with a volatility that is noticeable, but not off putting.

Wild Boar Cafe, draft into 12oz Snifter. 4/11/14.
