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!

Pour on tap at the brewery, hazy orange-yellow pour with white head, aroma brought nice pineapple, mango, orange, grapefruit, juicy citrus into some slight biscuit and cracker, a nice zesty and spicy note helps to balance it. Taste is a mix of sweet pineapple, mango, hints of lemon zest, nice grapefruit into zesty and spicy hops, nice cracker and biscuit notes, finishing fairly spicy, nice and dry, slight fruit notes come back. Well done.

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.

Tap at Funkwerks - hazy gold - soapy lace - nose is highly floral, with the spice and fruitiness of the nelson very forward and complimented well by the addition of the muscat grape juice - smells very much like a dry white wine - nice texture - well attenuated - dry, flinty, spicy - strong mineral bite - spicy, peppery - moderate peppery phenols - mango, peach, melon rind - dry finish,with strong white grape - delicious.

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.

Smells of grapefruit, white grape and guava. Taste is boozy and sweet with white grape and guava. Light on the palate, light mouthfeel -distinctively funkwerks. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
