3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Goblet at Cheeky Monk. Pours gold with good lacing. Very estery nose, but not over the top. Notes of bubblegum, peppers, citrus and a little alcohol. Palate is robust and goes with the sugars well. Itís got a sweet kick to it, but dries out rapidly with spiced, peppery flavors. Itís a warming beer with noticeable alcoholic presence, but not in a negative way. Tasty, powerful take on a Belgian beer.

Long tangy sugar, passion fruit and golden fruit finish. Only a touch boozy with a moderately thick and full body. Quite nice.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thanks, Jeff! Interesting to try this hybrid, to see where the Funky ones go with a slightly different style. Wasnít quite up to the level of others Iíve had from them but still quite solid. Lustrous honey gold pour with a boisterous head, consistent carbonation and lacing. Nose was quite yeasty indeed, with the tartness of raw yeast evoking citrus, back up by some grain and spice. Could have use a bit more in the way of hopping to dry it out a bit and give it balance, as the tastes stuck just a bit too much in the honey/tartness corner for me. But the finish redeemed things, bitter and lengthy.
