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.

Immensely drinkable, and the alcohol is well hidden. Some fruitiness and complexity. Thanks Jason!

"This beer hides the abv very very well, almost to a fault. It’s got all the requisite parts for a good triple/golden...fruity, spicy zesty yeast character, dry finish. But everything is sooooooo mellow it’s too easy drinking to be among the better beers in the style. Surprisingly boring, but still on the pleasant side of things."

750 ml. bottle. Bottled 2014.06.20. 8.5% ABV per the label. Pours a thick, well retained, white head, over a very slightly hazy effervescent yellow (SRM 3) body.....nose is Pils malts with cereal notes, light pear, apple, hints of citrus, minimal hops.....taste is slightly sweet to start, with floral notes, light citrus, mild spice notes, including hints of clove and moderate pepper, finishing with light spice hop bitterness......mouth feel, medium body, slightly sticky, light alcohol warmth, carbonation high with refreshing acidity. This falls well within the style. It is a bit on the sweet end of the spectrum, and better attenuation would improve that. BJCP 8/3/14/4/7

This brew pours a slightly cloudy golden color with a medium foamy white head that diminishes gradually. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of fruit, yeast and caramel malt. Medium to full body with flavors of tropical fruit, earthy yeast and sweet malt. The finish is fruity with a mildly funky Belgian yeast aftertaste.Above average overall.

750ml bottle from buddy in Colorado: Pours a pale golden hue with an initial huge fluffly head and nice lacework. Really liking the nose with its combination of classic Belgian yeast esters along with lemon zest and faint mango. The taste is a tad more traditional but you still get some back notes of citrus and peppery finish. Solid pils, wheat, and biscuity malts layers. Mikey Likey

Draft. Clean golden hay pour. Aroma of grass, bubblegum, white bread. Taste is surprisingly light, crisp, and refreshing. A bit of heavy sweetness, but we’ll balanced by the typical funkwerks yeast.

1- alcohol and toasty malt 2- straw to yellow with a thick white head 3- sugary sweet flavor 4- low to medium body, fizzy with some slight astringency 5- A good beer and easy drinking for a 9 % beer. The residual sugar sweetness distracts
