Poured on-tap at the brewery and served in a tulip, the beer is a hazy, bright gold coloring with a foamy, sparse, white head. Nose of toasted grain, coriander, subtle farmhouse funk, tart notes, clove, and all spice. Flavors are toasted grain forward, with lemon grass herbal notes, another dose of farmhouse funk, and tart citrus notes. Light and crisp in mouth, with an effervesced, funky, tart aftertaste. Spiced, sweet linger. Nice and refreshing.

Fourth time having this beer. Once at Funkwerks and now the third of a four pack.

A- 12oz slim bottle poured to a snifter with a somewhat yeast hazed light golden yellow body. The head is white with a frothy texture and pretty good retention. Lacing is a mix of large sheets and drizzle.

S- Classic Saison yeast spice with a feel somewhere between pepper and coriander paired to fruit a aromas like lemon peel and pear. Slightly juicy stone fruit hint behind the rest but fairly minor.

T- Fruit notes open up a bit as a dryness sets in throughout. Tangerine, semi bitter orange peel, passion fruit and lemon match up to pepper, coriander and a certain herbal feel that could be from yeast or hops.

MF- Medium bodied for the style but finishes almost bone dry. The body has a smooth, creamy consistency even with a high end carbonation. Finishes moderately bitter and that combines with the dryness to linger on the palate.

I was a huge fan of this right off the bat at the taproom. After a few months in the bottle it has seemingly not changed and retains a nice balance of spicy yeast and fruity tones.
