COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Named after a distinctive New Zealand hop, this single-hop saison has a subtle aroma of white grapes and a hint of spice from our house saison yeast. An addition of Muscat grape must during fermentation plays into the grape aromas from the hops and helps dry out the finish. This dry, refreshing saison pairs perfectly with warm weather!

Bottle poured into Funkwerks snifter. Color is hazy gold with a very large white head. Aroma is light lemon, light bubblegum hops, faint hay, light spice, and faint pale malt. Flavor is lightly spicy with hints of lemon, bubblegum, and light hay. Straight forward and easy to drink.

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.

So close to being charming that that is almost charming. Everything is subtle and nice with grape, grass, herbs, dough, and toast all in the background. The only issue is nothing is in the foreground so you are left wanting a bit more out of it. Great beer nonetheless.

Strong Belgian flavors, kinda like a tripel, not much like the hops, spicey, good offering

UPDATED: NOV 3, 2014 Bottle at home with friends. Pour is hazy lemon peel with a huge white head and great lacing. Fruity, tangy, lemon peel, doughy, light straw, grass, citrus, coriander, and lightly earthy aroma. Taste is lemon peel, grassy, slightly bitter, fruity, slightly floral, clove, light banana, a touch of herbs, ending with a lightly spicy finish. Medium body with high carbonation. Nice stuff!

Bottle. Thanks to adnielsen for sending! Pours a hazy golden orange color with a nice white head. Citrusy, grapefruit, white wine, earthy aromas. Spicy, lemon, citrus, yeast flavors. Very nice Funkwerks beer.

UPDATED: OCT 5, 2013 Bottle @ home picked up at Funkwerks. Prototype bottle release. Pours a cloudy, light yellow appearance with a big white head. Weedy, skunky herbal, fairly spicy yeasty, white wine, apple aroma that’s kind of strange. Fairly dry, crisp grainy, lemon, white grape, potpourri, herbal/floral hoppy flavor. Carbonation is really heavy. I love Nelson Sauvin hops but this one really didn’t hit the spot for me.
