On tap at the brewery. Poured a hazy, bright golden-yellow color with a third-quarter inch white head that slowly faded to a thick layer and left some spotty lacing. Aroma is mostly doughy, dusty yeast with a peppery spiciness paired with a light rye maltiness and a faint hint of citrus. Smooth, moderately sweet entry with a moderate grainy rye maltiness paired with a lightly tart hint of lime that transitions into a dry, doughy yeastiness with the same peppery spice present in the nose that lingers into the finish where it is paired with a faint hint of earthy hops. Moderate carbonation and crisp, dry mouth feel that makes it inviting to drink, even though the flavor isnít spectacular. Overall, it was solid and very inviting to drink. It seemed a tad unrefined and like mj said, the lime seems a tad out of place and throws of the balance some. Still, on a hot day it would be easy to drink a lot of.

On tap @ brewery. Light, milky, banana yellow appearance with white head. Yeasty, slightly soapy, light Belgian ale nose. Light lime, a touch soapy, light rye, golden Belgian ale flavor.

3fourths (9137) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 19, 2011
UPDATED: JUN 20, 2011 draft. murky and cloudy golden wheat body. frothy, doughy and unsettlingly strong yeast in the nose (bready, dusty, peppery). lime accent gives it an oily citrus rind quality and tastes mostly out of place. the lime definitely doesnít help or bring together this beer; it would probably be better without the lime, but itís still a fun experiment and it has a pleasing, subtle, quiet flavor. about par for funkwerks: maybe a bit too gritty/unrefined at times, but flavorful and enjoyable.

On tap at Funkwerks poured a clear yellow with a small lingering white head. Aromas of straw, rye, key lime and yeast. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a smooth dry finish. Flavors of straw, rye, yeast and light lime with a smooth dry lingering yeasty finish.
