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 50įF 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.

J_man (760) - Tustin, California, USA - APR 13, 2012
750 ml. bottle picked up at Pringleís in Fort Collins. Spicy Saison aroma coming off a deeply hazy tangerine yellow body with a soapy white head thatís explosively effervescent. Coriander and pepper spices with citrus overtones followed by a slightly vegetal green pepper taste in the back thatís really nice. Bone dry and palate cleansing yet with a medium body with bready malt undertones. Finishes like it starts with spice and earthy funk.

Rustyham (1778) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - APR 9, 2012
Average saison, flowery, Brett funk. Slight citrus. Easy drinking. In this day and age, I want something in my saison that I can identify. this is good and smooth, and not that I want to take away form it, but iíd like something to stand out and remind me of the beer iím drinking when it comes to such a subtle style.

kramer (5243) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 1, 2012
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy bright gold body with a one finger fizzy white head that had excellent retention due to fairly active carbonation. The nose is nicely rustic and slightly earthy with restrained spice notes. A light touch of hops, some fruity notes, a wonderful yeast profile. The flavor is very solid, the base beer and the yeast are showcased, the spices are used as accents, and they primarily come out on the finish. Dry and just a little funky, the wheat and bready malts are really soft and delicate before the spicy and lively finish comes on. Medium bodied for the style with nice fizzy lively carbonation that enhances the dryness and spice on the finish. Pretty nice Saison. The beers Iíve had from these guys are pretty solid.

Sampled at an esbls tasting. Hazy 10 carat gold with a funky white head. This is finky smelling, and even a bit fishy. The flavor is interesting funk with peppery spice. The finish is a nice zing of hops. Very nice.

750 ml bottle; thanks Brandon; pale orange with huge eggy white head; nice spicy and lemony aromas; dry lemon peels, almost spritzy mouthfeel from the heavy carbonation; crisp with a lingering bitterness; a little sharper finish the more I drink; stale lemons, dry malt and faint spice; decent overall but a tad sharp for me; not spicy by any means, but drinks with a sharp yeasty bite; carbonation is way high and detracts quite a bit IMO

Denver2012 (24) - - MAR 4, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 10, 2012 Pours a hazy dark yellow with thick creamy white head. Great lacing, like a thick wall of it. An inviting aroma of yeast, dough, sweet juciy fruit (apples, grapes, orange), even a little floral. A really nice aroma all in all. Flavor is refreshing and not quite as sweet as the aroma might have lead me to expect. The yeast is the star and lemon the important sidekick. A touch of bitterness in the close and some apple in the finish. Moutfeel is dry, carbonated, and medium bodied. I had been wanting to try this one for a long time now and happy to finally get aound to it. Definitely a very nice beer that one could easily drink a lot of. I was hoping to be able to call this my favorite from Funkwerks but that honor still goes to Tropic King.

Hair6a11 (1399) - Illinois, USA - FEB 2, 2012
Bottle; Pour is murky gold with a frothy white head in this glass -retention is nice - with some sticky lacing. The nose is grainy, mild funk, herbal... pepper and general spiciness. Fruity again... but not funky. Am I the only one that finds that ironic? ("funk"werks") Well.. whatever... peaches, orange peel, lemon grass, pepper......grains, caramel... interesting... but Iím not a huge fan.

750 mL bottle shared at the January 2012 Sante Cruz tasting at Sante Adairius. Pours an orangey gold with a thick white head. Lemony, grassy, peppery aroma. Very German malt profile, reminds me of a helles lager. Flowery notes and light stone fruitiness round it out. Solid beer.
