COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is our version of a light session beer. This beer is a showcase for Pilsner malt and Saphir hops. The result is a beer with a crisp clean almost lager-like flavor. Easy to drink and goes down smooth.

TwoSipDip (8880) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 22, 2011
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2011 Tap @ Funkwerks. Light yellow and a bit hazy appearance with a medium sized head and quite similar in appearance to a Belgian Witbier. Light malty nose with yeast, some citrus, and a tinge of spicy wildness. Body is light bodied and crisp thanks to the Pils malts with a dull yeast flavor and a touch of citrus. Light and easy drinking without a ton of flavor.

3fourths (7855) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 22, 2011
UPDATED: SEP 12, 2011 draft. unfiltered and cloudy golden wheat body. muddy and estery pilsner malt nose (baked crackers, dough, mild sweetness) with some wort / brewhouse rawness. effervescent and zesty with white pepper phenols and orange flesh fruitiness. pils malt is mildly rough and astringent, giving it a baked cracker crispness in the finish, and while the belgian yeast doesn’t seem to pair so well with the pils malt snappiness and roughness, it’s still delicious and well-made, and at 5% it’s definitely sessionable, which isn’t the case with many of funkwerks’ other saisons.

BMan1113VR (7813) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 9, 2011
On tap at the brewery. Pours with a clear yellow body and a voracious, white head. Aromas are grassy, funk, peppery, ginger, grassy, malty, bready and phenolic/spicy. Flavors are lightly tarty, pretty subdued yeast character, ginger, bready, orange, somewhat crisp. Lightly grassy. Tasty. Lively bubbles and dry as always! Absolutely excellent session beer (despite my rating numbers, this would be a beer I’d want to drink every day)!

Pour on tap at the brewery is hazy yellow with nice white head, aroma has notes of grass, soapy hops, some biscuit, touch of earthy, zesty yeast in there as well. Taste is hints of grass, pine slight soap, hints of zest, earth and biscuit, some slight spice notes as well, finishing fairly dry.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 4, 2011
Tap at funkwerks. Pours a light blonde with a good head. Aroma is big fresh bready pils malt,s phenolic saison yeast some sea foam, light mint,grass and fresh german hops. Flavor is floral, herbal fresh saphir with a touch of green mintiness, big bready pils malt and a clean dry finish. Straightforward and awesome.

notalush (4763) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 26, 2011
Tap at Funkwerks - more like a cross between a golden ale and a pils, but since they seem to use the same yeast for everything, I suppose the saison designation works - pils malt is showcased well here - smooth and lager-like - chalky a bit through the middle - a bit of spiciness from the yeast - peppery - yeastiness and a bit of perfumey aromatics - dry, biscuity finish - easy drinking and flavorful for something so light.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 8, 2011
Draft at Funkwerks. Only one that wasn’t in any of the samplers. Pours a nice enough looking gold, fluffy white head. Nose is crisp and clean, pretty straightforward. Really nice spicy notes and soft fruit from the hops. Clean pils malt. On taste, pretty easy drinking and light. Soft bitterness and full malt character. Light bodied and nice yeast character. Tasty beer, but not really a standout overall.
