COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The beer you are holding is unique. A special strain of yeast and a warm fermentation produces a beer of exceptional flavor and aroma. An extended secondary maturation and bottle conditioning ensures all these unique qualities are preserved and evolve over time. Serve at 50°F in a tulip glass.

What to expect
This tawny orange beer pours with a rocky white head. Aromas of passion fruit, tangerine, and black pepper hit the nose. Flavor is a cascade of orange, lemon verbena, ginger and pepper. And in a second it is gone, finishing with a dry and lingering bitterness that awaits another sip.

Cellaring Information
Store upright in a dark dry place at cellar temperature (ideally at 50 degree). Cellar limit is 2 years.

ClubGonzo (3939) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 24, 2014
Bottle. Light golden body, massive foamy white head. Aroma is sweet sugary tones, red fruits, straw, sour yeasty saison tones and hints of citrus. Taste is red berries, peach peel, mild citric tones, white sugar anf hints of alcohol, straw and pale malts. Medium body, high carbonation. Well-balanced saison with good drinkability, though a tad bit boring.

Funkwerks Saison does justice to the brewery’s name. This Farmhouse Ale does indeed boast a lot of yeasty, Belgian-style funk. Yet, it has more to offer than that. For starters, the hazy, brownish-orange body produces a massive amount of head. The frothy, robust suds do a fine job of propelling the aromas of earthy yeast and tropical fruit esters. On the tongue, Saison starts off with spicy black pepper kick with some sweeter herbal tones to balance it out. At the middle of the mouth, you get some crisp hoppy bitterness. The finish is mellow and fruity with orange, lemon, and tangerine. The superb balance, rich complexity, and full-bodied flavor make this a world-class Saison that would taste good when paired with about anything and would suit any season of the year.
