Bottle. Pours hazy dark gold with a large, frothy white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is apricot, grains of paradise, light biscuit malt, heavier straw and meal malt notes, pepper and ginger, and barnyard yeast. Flavor is malt forward with barnyard yeast, light hops and medium bitterness, pepper, apricot, and ginger with a dry finish. Medium-light body, medium carbonation.

UPDATED: DEC 19, 2012 Bottle... Hazy yellow ale with a mid-sized, wispy, white head. Great retention. The aroma furnishes lemon with subtle undertones of barnyard funk and spicy farmhouse yeast. Light to medium-bodied with airy carbonation. The flavor is mildly acidic and citrusy, but is a touch too sweet to really wrap my lips around. Finishes crisp and refreshing at first, then cracker malt sweetness lingers and nearly ruins the entire experience for me. More time in the bottle may improve this one... or not. Bottle courtesy of biggsbowler!

UPDATED: JUN 17, 2012 Bottle @ Mattís house, courtesy of notalush. Thanks Brandon! Hazy, yellow orange appearance with a white head. Somewhat chalky, plastic, rancid apricot, peach, ginger aroma. Rich peppercorn, dull apricot, peach, ginger, earthy, ginger, chalky flavor. Tough to drink.

Pour out of 750 mL bottle, thanks Brandon for the pour! Slightly hazy orange with fluffy white head, aroma brought notes of slight apricot, wet grain, biscuit, bread, some yeast and slight spice, touch of grass, very muddled and hardly any fruit. Taste is a mix of wet bready malts, muddled apricot and vanilla, touch of grain, grass and slight yeast, some watery mineral notes as well, finishing fairly sweet but not much there.

3fourths (8699) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 15, 2012
bottle. well, it smells like drywall and chalk powder and concrete mix with starchy dried apricots and minor notes of acetone / chemicals / hairspray. medium-light body thinning to a watery finish, as most other Funkwerks beers are. pasty, chalky, medium-low acid, medium+ tartness, low bitterness, mostly dry but completely watery and peaked texture. neutral flavor, decent for most of the drink but falling off at the end (sour cream and stale fruit). ginger? maybe a little bit, and old and stale. grains of paradise? nope. no wood, no herb, no spice at all. peppercorns? hard to tell. apricot? sure, but itís extremely muted by the muddy, neutral yeast. disappointing.

Bottle at Jdadmondís Dadtoberfest tasting courtesy of Max. Pours a lightly hazed gold with a thin white head. Musk, fruit, spicy notes, a touch of cardamom, pepper. Medium bodied, sweet and spicy, nice yeast with a good amount of phenols, musk and toast. Very easy drinking, nice musk and spicy notes into the finish. Very nice.

"A rather untraditionally full bodied pilsner. Dry bready and a bit sweet, with some grassy hops and hay and a slight tartness to make things interesting. Not bad. "

Bottle thanks to Dallas. Iím 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.

Bottle at Dadtoberfest. Hazy gold with a white head. Peachy sweetness, light peppery spices, with some funky/musky notes in the background. I donít know what the hell is going on here, but itís pretty good.
