2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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.

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.

Holy fuck this beer is bad - nose itonot terrible at first, with notes of ginger, but the deeper inhales reveal sweet corn adjuncty character and cheap potpourri - flavor is chalky, with heavy, dull yeast - tangy and mildly acidic through the middle - finish is mildly phenolic, with some apricot - a fucking mess.

Crushed on tap at Backcountry Pizza. Hazy yellow, opaque pour with a white head. Aroma dominated by pepper and ginger. Searched for apricot, but couldnít find any. Ginger dominates the flavor, with more pepper and even a bit salty. Respect to Funkwerks, but this one didnít work for me. Couldnít finish it.
