3.81/5  rDev +5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Bottle dated 1/21/13

A: Pours a pale orange, almost golden yellow, murky body. Gusher alert! Took about 25 minutes to pour the full 750ml bottle into two glasses because of the carbonation and aggressive head build-up. Foamy, bubblebath-esque pillowy head hangs around for a while but slides down the glass without much lacing.

S: Tons of brett right upfront. A bit of oak. Some citrus - lemons mostly. Hard to smell much beyond the brett, but that's often typical of brett beers.

T: Funky brett follows the nose, but more complexity than the waft suggests. Lemons and white grapes - has a strong champagne taste.

M: Light body. HEAVY carbonation. Dry. Drinks like a dry white wine - like an oaky chardonnay.

O: Im really glad I got to try this one. I'm sure it's changed drastically over a year in the cellar, but Brett beers age magnificently.

Thanks to Francois for sharing.

Big pillowy head, soapy lacing, hazy milky blond color.

Nose nice Brett, some farmhouse saison aromas, light spices and citrus, toasty blond malts, little lemon

Taste nice funk Brett, light saison, farmhouse, spices, lemony, citrus, grainy malts, toasty, sweet candy malts, light floral spicy hops. Fair bitterness.

Mouth effervescent carb, little sticky syrupy, med bod.

Overall nice, could have been a bit better but still nice.

A new 'pilot batch' offering from FW; an updated variation to their Brett Dream, which I never tried. Gonna re-review this since time has definitely been this beers friend....gave the brett a chance to mature.

Pours a hazy yellow with a huge, creamy white head and nice lacing. Aroma offers some belgian yeast, some tartness in the form of lemon from the brett, and a kick of some spice from the yeast, and a touch of breadiness. Flavor followed suit with maybe a little pineapple/tropical fruits action thrown in there as well. An active, crisp mouthfeel. Overall, solid beer from Funkwerks here. For a brett saison it doesn't quite stand up to the best of the style, but still very much enjoyable. Would happily drink this again.
