BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Funkwerks
Colorado, United States
funkwerks.com

Style: Belgian Saison

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.20%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
At 4.2% ABV our Provincial is our sessionable Belgian-Style sour ale brewed utilizing a unique 24-hour warm souring technique using lactobacillus in the wort. We fermented with a Belgian wheat yeast strain famous for fruity flavors and a dry finish, making it the perfect complement to fruit. This delightfully tart fruit beer is refreshing, with a citrusy apricot aroma that transitions into a subtlety sweet and tart finish.

It pours light yellow, slightly hazy and with a head that lasts 5 seconds. The aroma has a lot of lactose notes and some apricot. The taste is tart and with a very carbonated mouthfeel. Refreshing and overall easy to drink.

330ml bottle. 2/3/17 bottle date. Appearance: Very cloudy pale straw yellow, with a nice white head for a sour. Aroma: Apricot and orange zest dominate. Very fruit forward with a slight acidity. Well balanced for the style. Taste: Burst of apricot and tea upfront, with a touch of citrus peel, quickly turning to a sharp acidic tartness. Minimal bitterness. Mouthfeel: Medium bitterness, thicker than normal for a sour, with a moderate carbonation. Finish: Acidic tartness is prominent, with some apricot in the background. Overall: A top notch sour, due to a wonderful balance of fruitiness to the acidity. Apricot and orange zest seem to dominate the aroma and flavor while balancing a sharp acidity. Quite different than most sours that are overly acidic and lack the balance. Leads to a very refreshing and easy drinking sour
