Slightly skunky nose but doesn’t come through on the flavor. The funk and Nelson is a great combo. Sourdough bread, earthy but all are lead by the nelson hops. Very interesting.

From the brewery, this pours a hazy straw into the glass, with an immense ivory head that keeps an inch-thick head throughout, leaving chunky lace down the Trappist glass. The nose has nice yeasty esters, fruit and doughy notes. Flavors have lots of lemon, grains, wheat and hay, finishing with a grassy note. The light body is very active with carbonation, but has enough substance to provide complexities. The lemony barnyard effervescence goes on for days. A quaffable brew, this is very tasty and perfect for the summer! I am so glad to have made Funkwerks a stop on my Colorado brew tour! Simply gorgeous brewing here, with a real handle on the Belgian style.
