Cloudy straw-yellow with a rocky white head. Wonderful intense aroma of sweet and yeasty fruit, pineapple, citrus, mango along with quite a bit of spiciness, ginger and clove. Chewy, sweet and tart on the tongue with a long drying finish. Absolutely beautiful.

Thanks to the kind soul that opened this at the last Tampa tasting. Pours a slightly hazy amber orange with a white head. Nose is Belgian-style yeast, tropical fruit, mango, and peach with a hint of banana and chalk. Flavor is similar with lingering tropical fruit and banana in the finish. Light to medium in body and an interesting take on the normal saison.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy brownish peach pour with a sudsy white head. Nectar and dough lead to apple and pear cider, as well as hints of lemon juice. More doughy nectar fruits in the flavor. Very one dimensional. Medium body, medium carbonation, medium rating.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy peach colored pour with a big frothy head. Nose holds bready yeast, green grape, apricot, pear cider, and grass. the flavor is marked with more dough, apple, light plum and raisin notes, with a fairly sweet overall character. Well made, but not my favorite style of saison.

Draft at Funkwerks. Pours a very attractive, lightly hazed deep orange. Nose is really great, lots of tropical fruit, gooseberry and white pepper. Really fresh and dynamic. On tasting, the malt profile works really well here and the yeast doesn’t wash out the hop character. Lots of great fruitiness and light alcohol notes. Biscuity and dry malt finish as well. Truly a fantastic saison. Might be my favorite from funkwerks.

Sampled from 750ml bottle. Poured a reddish color with a small white head. Aroma was citrus, apples, perhaps a touch of cloves? Flavor was fruity, maybe a granny smith flavor down there? Very interesting brew.
