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

Crushed on tap at Backcountry Pizza. Hazy yellow, opaque pour with a white head. Aroma dominated by pepper and ginger. Searched for apricot, but couldn’t find any. Ginger dominates the flavor, with more pepper and even a bit salty. Respect to Funkwerks, but this one didn’t work for me. Couldn’t finish it.

750 ml bottle. Pours slightly hazy straw yellow with a medium creamy white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is fruits (apricot), bready malts and spicy earthy yeast.

The flavor is sweet citric fruits with some spicy peppery yeast. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and fairly watery.

Overall, a nice fruity summer beer. Good blend of the fruits and the yeast.

Bottle poured a cloudy blonde hue w/ large white frothy head diminishes to a nice thin cap and some lacing. Nice big aromas of pepper, earth, pineapple and citrus. Flavor is an initial light sweet and finishes with a light sour. Taste is lemon, ginger, leather, and apricot. Light bodied, dry texture, and lively carbonation. Has a thin mouthfeel.

Poured from a bomber into a cute little flute glass. It is a cloudy, pale yellow with a ultra thin and bubbly white head. Smells first of funky/barnyard then of spices- pepper and cinnamon?, hard to say- then a citrusy scent. The taste is a new combination for me. There is a slightly tart front, pepper, light fruit taste and a great, highly carbonated palate. For some reason I want to say there is cinnamon in this brew but I’m not sure. Maybe it is the ginger they mention in the description.

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.

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.

Chalky blond and an effervescent white head. Tart, lactic aroma of bright fruit, ginger and pepper. Light to medium bodied with full flavor, still tart , but also malty and spicey. Nicely dry and lemony in the finish with just the right touch of ginger. I can’t tell what the other reviews were complaining about, maybe it needed the full 6 months in the bottle. It’s like a tripel with apricot. This beer is tasty, complex and well-structured.

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.
