3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Cloudy blonde color with a large white head. Lot of pepper, grains of paradise, and slight fruit character in the aroma. Trying this next to the High West Campfire whiskey is a bit strange, though. Taste is potpourri heavy, some lemon, ginger, and a great spice character from the grains. Light bodied, and maybe a touch thin. Still, pretty nice.

Tap at Rackhouse in south Denver September 2012-Pours hazy yellow with a small white head. nose is wack!!! spice, yeast fruity pretty lovely acutally. i didnt know this had apricots in it when drinking it. Flavors are very tart and lite grains. hmm doesnt really match the nose. very thin body detracts a bit from the overall enjoyment of this beer. however, that makes this very session-able for the lovely ladies out there that like fruit beers. Cool beer and glad i got to try it.

Bottle with Carla from Liquormart. Pours a hazy light yellow gold with a dusting of white foam. Smells strongly of wheat with hints of coriander. Tastes very fizzy with wheat hints of apricot fuzz.

On tap at Rackhouse. Pour is pale, hazy lemon with with a small white head and great lacing. Grain, pepper, rotten apricots, plastic and cherry pie in the aroma. Taste is very bland with notes of corn, cereal, apricot, and pepper. Light body with high carbonation. Really a let down.

Bottle thanks to Dallas. I’m trying to leave and this guy keeps on cracking:) Nice work man! Pours a cloudy orange/yellow color with a medium white head. A spicy banana nose with some straw and fruit. The flavor is peppery, tropical at times, big banana, dry, big flavors and unusual. Decent.

Poured from a 750 ml bottle, thanks mom. Fruity, malty, spices, stoned fruit. The spices and yeast do not blend well together. Meh.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
On hand at Wynkoop’s United Tastes of Belgium 2012. Slightly hazy light gold in color, with a peppery apricot-y aroma atop some Belgian pale graininess. Flavor was nice and eccentric, with apricot and peppercorn and grains of paradise coming through very well. Finished a little grainy and funky, but still fun to drink.

My least favorite of the Funkwerks lineup. Aroma was unpleasantly sour - like overripe and slightly rotten apricots or grapefruit so ripe they’ve fallen from the tree. Flavor is overly acidic and sour with no balance - dry and fruity in the extreme without any balancing malty or sweet character. Too one-sided, even for a sour style.
