Our house saison yeast meets an American pale ale. Generous late additions of Cascade and Centennial hops give a floral and citrus aroma that blends with the fruity and peppery notes from our Saison yeast. The flavor brings a hint of citrus which yields to hop bitterness and peppery phenols in the dry finish.

BMan1113VR (7917) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 9, 2011
On tap at the brewery. Pours with a hazed copper body and a white head. Aromas are fruity, spicy, herbal, hoppy, beautiful yeast character, citrusy and dank. Flavors are citrusy, hoppy and bitter. Lively bubbles, dry, light caramel (odd for a Funkwerks beer), nice phenol. Great stuff.

NobleSquirrel (3439) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 8, 2011
Draft at Funkworks. Not sure on what planet this qualifies as an APA. Pours amber with an offwhite head. Nose is odd, lots of white pepper dominates and overshadows the faint hop notes. On tasting, the white pepper again overshadows the fusion style here, with the hoppy bitterness nearly scraping across the palate, clashing with the white pepper. Mostly, it just needs to be tightened up in order to make this really tie together. Not a bad beer, just sloppy.

Aroma is caramel and biscuit malt, floral and fruity hops, fruity esters, alcohol notes, spicy and peppery nose. Flavor is caramel and biscuit malt, floral and spicy hops with a dry and spicy finish. Medium body and carbonation, low warmth.

Sampled at the Paramount Café Beer Festival, pre-GABF on September 28, 2011, Denver, CO. Dark orange pour with an off-white head. Funky aroma with rose-like hops. Clean, citrusy flavor. Seems like a hoppier version of a saison but is very light. Great.

adnielsen (10485) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 18, 2011
Tap @ brewery. Gorgeous, glowing orange appearance with a cream colored head. Peppery, citrusy aroma from their house yeast, slightly floral hoppy nose. Mild floral, a touch piney hoppy, peppery, belgian yeasty, lemon-tangerine citrusy flavor. The saison yeast really makes this more like a belgian ale than a pale ale and as usual from these guys, it’s pretty tasty.

notalush (5728) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 17, 2011
Tap at Funkwerks - hazy copper beer - nose is citrusy American hops and light yeast phenols - flavor is a bit more promising - a lot of Biscuity malt character and bright American hops that play well off of the citrus quality imparted by the yeast - tangy finish, with some lingering toasted grains - I like it.

3fourths (9137) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 12, 2011
draft. mostly clear amber orange. syrupy, moderately thick and a bit chewy throughout. fruity, waxy esters, amerian hop citrus brightness with light to medium toasted grains and mild starches (corn, bread, dough, etc. mixed with waxy / fruity esters). a bit rough and harsh, especially in the finish. lacks vibrancy and direction, seemingly wanting to present high acid hops but also remaining subtle and quiet, which would be okay if the body weren’t a touch too goopy and chewy for such a beer.
