A - Poured out a cloudy, golden yellow color with a two-finger, white head of bubbly foam. It left some sudsy trails of lace on the glass.

S - It smelled fairly spicy with coriander notes. Nice cracked wheat presence, too.

T - Good spicy/yeasty bite up front. Cracked wheat and grains add some sweetness. There is a mild lemon flavor.

M - It was crisp and crackled on the tongue. A medium bodied ale with a dry finish.

O - This is really good. Another great brew from Funkwerks.

thanks to egrace84 for the share! thanks elliot!

reviewed from notes taken on 7/29/12.

pourd into tulip glass.

Appearance: cloudy yellow bodied beer with huge fluffy white head!

Smell: Wheat, spice, coriander, orange peel.

Taste: Big orange peel and coriander spice upfront. Touch of soft wheat, funk, and lemon zest.

Mouthfeel: light bodied beer with moderately high carbonation. Really easy drinker here. Super crisp carbonation and really refreshing beer.

Overall: Fantastic witbeer! Almost has some saison qualities to it. Just awesome hot weather brew! My first Funkwerks beer and I am looking forward to more!

#267 of 2100 ... Poured into a tulip glass

A - Pours a light, pale or almost hazy golden yellow. Billowing 2 finger white head. No real lacing.

S - Lemon peel, some white pepper, definite funk along with a light malt added.

T - Ginger, lemon zest and some honey along with spices.

M - Light body, highly carbonated. Just effervescent to the max.

O - What an enjoyable brew! It was so light on the palette but very refreshing to drink.

[Best served in a Tulip glass]

The pour was a murky pale yellow with an average sized (1-2 finger) white creamy head that reduced to a thin cap, which produced excellent sheets of lacing.

The aroma was of a mild bread malt with a strong presence of a funky horse blanket Belgian yeast and had notes of citrus (lemon peel), coriander and some light fruity esters (banana and apple).

The taste was rather yeasty with a mild hint of a fruit from the onset and finished with a strong wheat flavor that had notes of coriander and a mild citrus peel bitterness. The flavor lasted only a short while after the initial swallow with a nice spicy yeast taste that hung on a bit longer.

Mouthfeel was light in body and somewhat watery in texture with a solid medium carbonation.

Overall a fantastic Witbier that possessed a nice mild spicy citrus presence along with a light and enticing fruitiness. Simply enjoyable...

I guess I'm a bit jaded towards witbier. This was a good one but it was hard to get excited about. Floral right from the start (chamomile and lavender). Bit of lemongrass, citrus, and cut grass. Dry finish, mild bitterness. Some black pepper and funk. Pleasant yeastiness. Twang of sour at the end. Flavorful and rather untamed.

Poured from bottle 0840/2100 to tulip the beer arrives an opaque yellow golden color with a nice 3 finger white bubbly he's with some retention and lacing. The aroma is a delicate Belgian yeast with a pleasant toast malt base. Similarly the flavor is a pleasant Belgian wit with yeast toast and earthy hop mild bitterness that lasts a while on the palette. Nice. Lighter bodies and well carbonated and clean. Overall another nice beer from funkwerks.
