COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Fermented with two saison yeasts and a bit of Brettanomyces, this beer puts the ‘funk’ in Funkwerks! Aromas of pineapple compliment the flavors of citrus and subtle earthy notes found in the dry finish. Brett character will continue to develop with cellaring.

Sampled on 10/10/2012. Caution: this bottle was a fairly active gusher. This wild/sour ale pours a very hazy light yellow gold color from a 750ml bottle. Large sized white foamy head with good retention and nice lacing. The aroma is fruity, bretty and sweet, with some funk and must. A medium bodied wild/sour ale. The malts are fruity and sweet, pineapple and citrus. The hops are earthy and spicy. Very lively carbonation. Some horse blanket, some must, some leather, and some yeasty esters. A lots of dry and funk. Crisp, clean and refreshing. A nice bretty beer. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is dry, clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly tart and dry.

Tap @ Cranknstein Foco. Cloudy, light yellow orange appearance with a white head. Pretty funky, pineapple, mango, citrusy, a bit musty aroma. Tart, bretty, funky pineapple, tangy citrusy flavor with a fairly dry, estery finish. I enjoyed this one quite a bit. By the way, this is a completely different recipe from their Saison.

Steve_0 (2537) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 13, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 4, 2014 Poured a murky yellow, with a huge white head. This beer is way over carbonated. Smells of slight tropic fruit, spice, and brett funk. Taste is fresh, funky and slightly spicy/peppery on the finish. I tasted this side by side with Elder Brett so it doesn’t measure up for me. Still, not bad. Update: This one had three years on it. Has developed nicely. Much funkier, super dry and effervescent - good honey notes, pepper, lavender, and lemony. Really big improvement. 3.4 to a 3.9

750 thanks to adnielsen. Big carbonated pour. Barnyard aroma. Lemon. Tart. Dry. Indeed some pineapple. Don’t agree with the low reviews. I like this one a lot.

Bottle. Pours hazy yellow with a large, frothy white head, long retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is heavy tropical fruity esters (pineapple, passion fruit), and fruity/floral hops with straw and meal malt and earthy yeast notes. Flavor is tropical fruity esters, light hops and bitterness, sweet malt and a dry finish with black pepper notes. Medium-light body and heavy carbonation.

Bottle thanks to Aaron. Pours a very hazy pale yellow a fluffy white head that lasts throughout the beer. Aroma has a nice funky nose with light fruits, flora and a hint of light grains. Flavor begins with a good amount of Brett with some earthy sweet grains and a hint of flora.

Great delicate mixed fermentation Saison. Mild perseverance fruit flavors balanced with spice an grainy malt flavors. Not a over powering Brett flavor profile. Very balanced like Saison should be. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
