Big thanks to Wasatch for another Funkwerks treat!

Beautiful lightly cloudy straw color pour with an ample topper of pure white foam that relaxes finally to a lasting cap. Beautiful look for a saison.

Mmm, overripe fruit and spicy funk with floral and rounded tart. Doughy sweet backs it all up. Alluring bouquet for sure.

The overripe fruit of the aroma is expressed as white wine in the taste, and it leads a parade of deliciousness. Light earthy funk , with some peppery spice, and crisp sweet grain hold hands with doughy tart notes that are balanced well. End of sip is a vinous and dry bitter and pepper.

Highly viscous and thick for style, but very refreshing character somehow also achieved. Killer finish that is a clean as a whistle, bright linger with amazing complexity.

Another delicious saison from Funkwerks that is a joy to drink. Highly recommended

Nelson Sauvin pours a straw like color, with lots of bubbles, and a small, long lasting and lacing head. Big spicy aroma, hint of sweetness. Flavor is yeasty, spicy, with sweet notes. Great body and feel. Overall, a very tasty and well put together saison. A sweet yet bitter.

Lovely tall pile of sticky foam in the Saxo narrow tulip. Color is a slightly hazy pale golden. Interesting funky aroma with lime peel and yeasty fresh bread. Voluminous carbonated mouthfeel is rather nice.

Fruity and rather sweet to start. Even a hint of candied grapefruit peel. The hops are a good choice for this brew, providing that touch of fruit and citrus with a little yeasty flavor. From the four-pack of 12 oz bottles purchased at Grapevine Liquors in Denver. Nice to see such a good Saison in this format for a moderate price.
