3fourths (9149) - 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 doesn’t help or bring together this beer; it would probably be better without the lime, but it’s 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.

BMan1113VR (7917) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 9, 2011
On tap at the brewery. Pours with a really pale yellow body with a white head that fully lasts. Aromas are very fruity, spicy, rye, phenol, hoppy (or citrus at least), grassy and lime. Flavors are fruity, lime, estery, spicy, grassy, peppery, and super dry. Very nice yeast character. Light bready and spicy malt character. Well made. Lively bubbles. Dead dry. Great!

Tap at Funkwerks - hazy golden - pretty much a well-executed saison overpowered by an addition of lime juice that is a little over the top - soft carbonation - toasty graininess, wheat - dry and flinty, with a mild touch of funk - some creamy texture - again, though, the lime it a bit much - would be better without it - still nice, especially for summer.

NobleSquirrel (3438) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 8, 2011
Draft at Funkwerks. Pours a pale yellow with a fluffy white head. quite pale and slightly hazed. Nose is faintly citrusy, but more yeast forward. Lots spice and white pepper on the nose and grainy. The lime is really just there by suggestion. On tasting, again, really fresh and clean, lots of refreshing fruity esters from the yeast and white pepper. Really clean and enjoyable.

Quite hazey, white-gold with white head. Malt dominated aroma and taste with some spices.
