Enjoyed in the Funk Factory Geuzeria taproom, this Blend 1 had the appearance of hazy but bright apricot with a faint white ring.

Smell is peach, honeycomb, peanut, apricot, wild herbs and spiced oats.

Taste is perfectly tart peach-apricot with spiced honey funk almost like herbal raspberry graham. I mean wow.

This beer is nice and light with a mild froth and a tart, puckering semi-dry finish.
