This light-hued beer was inspired by Belgian Tripels and Golden Strong ales. A high percentage of Pilsner malt and a new yeast strain we used present a lemon character in the aroma. This citrus quality carries into the flavor and finishes with a slight tartness. This beer is well balanced and smooth, making it easy to drink and sightly deceptive because of its high ABV.

Bright and very pale yellow with a rocky white head. Lemon and chalky yeast aroma - tart and lactic. Initial sweetness is quicky walloped by that tartness and a bone dry, fully attenuated finish, like chewing on Meyer lemon rind. Tastes as if they snuck some New Zealand hops in there. Evident alcohol. Highly carbonated, but mercifully, less than the benchmark - Duvel, and the lemon notes are an interesting addition. I believe the student has surpassed the master.

Sampled at the brewery, 11/25/15. Cloudy golden orange color with a bubbly head. Very drinkable and refreshing Belgian Blonde with a clean aroma and flavor. Gets pretty peppery on the finish.

nuplastikk (5255) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 26, 2015
750ml. Cloudy yellow-tan body. Foamy white head. Kind of an odd aroma, not what Id expect from the style at least. Lemony tinged malt tones. Almost has high temperature US saison tones. Wheat. Oats. Like a Double Wit. OK.

DrunkSanta410 (730) - Houston, Texas, USA - OCT 25, 2015
Bottle at home. Pours a slightly hazy golden color, bubbly white head, dissipates rather quickly. Aroma is spice, banana, faint yeast, faint citrus. Taste is light, a bit of dough, faint banana and spice, faint citrus. Some yeast and a dry finish. Light to medium body, high carbonation. Effervescent mouthfeel, dry finish with a bit of booziness burning in the aftertaste. Average. Did enjoy it.

Hazy golden pour from a bottle. Nice white head and white lacing. Citrus nose with some Belgian phenolics. Slightly fruity taste, some funky bitterness. Nice.

This beer has a cloudy yellow color and lemon and wheat aroma. My buddy picked up a hint of marshmallow but i think he is crazy. Flavor has a citrus flavor with the same wheat flavor. Paired with mozzarella salad.

A nice golden ale overall, not especially unique but smooth and tasty. Pours an ugly yellow with a white head. Smells of lemon and marshmallow. Taste is smooth with some orange, lemon and more marshmallow. Paired with mozzarella and tomato salad, the whole flavor profile is accentuated. Had in the bottle.

Deceit is a great name for an easy-drinking brew with a high alcohol content. With its clean malts, bright yeast, medium carbonation, and lively hop note, itd be easy to overlook Deceits 8.5% ABV. Taste reveals pear, tart apple, lemon, and some spice. Deceit is the sweetest kind of lie. Another great Belgian-style brew from Funkwerks.
