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.

kevinator (1476) - The Colony, Texas, USA - OCT 14, 2012
A very nice Saison. Nice golden color with a slight fizzy head. Fruity notes that were predominantly citrus. Palate was smooth and crisp. Tastes of subdued lemon and orange. Ginger was also present after it lingered in the mouth. There is a quick bitterness that makes the finish dry. Nice and refreshing.

750 ml. bottle. Pours a thick, well retained white head with extensive lacing, over a cloudy orange gold (SRM 5) body....nose is pear, apple, light spice, hints citrus, floral honey.....taste is light pear apple, light spice, hints of citrus, leading to a light pepper bite on the dry finish....mouth feel light of medium, carbonation adds tingle. This beer meets the style nicely with appropriate aromas, flavors, and dryness. The finish was right on. BJCP 8/3/14/4/7

Summer 2011 - If O’Dell beers are loud and proud, somewhere down the road Funkwerks is assembling the quietest choir of whispers in the beer industry. The soloist in our sampler flight was the Saison. It was a little bit louder than the rest, but still quiet and muted. That’s not to say that lacking flavor decibels is good or bad, but certainly a signature style of Funkwerks this early in their history. Although called a saison, the smell reminds me more of a golden ale, like Duvel, with a nice spicy and exotic aroma, and a touch of Meyer lemon. The flavor is distinctly sour, graced with a barnyard flavor - maybe from a brettanomyces yeast - but otherwise quiet and delicate. Good, but again, hard to extract the flavors after a long day of tasting pushier beers.

bright gold with two fingers of foamy white head. A perfect example of a Saison. Not much more can be said
