2.83/5 rDev -25.1%
Pours copper with an orange hue and a white head that disappears before I can even get a sip in. Aroma and flavor are similar; the trademark Funkwerks yeast is there making me think saison before remembering I ordered the Quad, caramel, honey, and hints of dark fruits. Medium body with light activity. Overall, not a fan of this one personally. Would not buy again.

750 ml capped bottle picked up at the brewery. Bottled 8-12-2013. Part of their prototype series.
Served slightly chilled into a goblet, Funkwerks Quad is unexpectedly light in color, more like an amber. It has a very hazy appearance with thin white head.
Aroma is dominated by the yeast, which isn't a bad thing because its pleasant. I believe it's their house yeast strain that's used for the saisons. What it's lacking is the dark fruits, toffee, and raisins that I would expect in a quad.
The same goes for the flavor. It's enjoyable but seems to missing the candi sugar and dark dried fruits. The malts are lighter, the yeast is more forward, and it's funky like a farmhouse ale.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied and strongly carbonated like many Belgians tend to be. The alcohol is stronger than all of their other beers but it doesn't seem hot or overpowering.
Overall an unusual take on the classic quad. It definitely has the saison influence and that's their thing. I would just take it a little darker and sweeter. I'm glad that they give their fans a chance to try their experimental beers!
