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

Unclear light gold, diminishing small white head. Light and refreshing. A little tang/funk. Its almost sweet until a hint of pepperiness and a bitterness interrupt. Great yeasty fruitiness. Lots of character. I like this.

Beautiful saison. I’m not much in the rating mood but great crispness, hoppiness, yeast, and citrus characters. Will have to try their various varieties.

A lovely traditional saison. Every thing is spot on except for perhaps a lingering bitterness. Otherwise this beer rules.

SPDickerman (1080) - Texas, USA - JUN 20, 2015
Pours hazy straw yellow with a large white head. Smells fruity, funky, hints of spice. Taste is funky, spicy, and hints of tropical fruit. Medium-bodied with a smooth texture and average mouth-carbonation, Funkwerks Saison finishes with a slight funkiness.

GTAEgeek (1583) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUN 18, 2015
Shared at Ale Alpharetta, brought by West. Cloudy yellow, with a big, white head. Nose is light biscuit dough, lemon zest, white bread, and a touch of piney hops. Sweet, with a bit of bitterness. Light body, crisp, and clean. This is a light and nice saison.

Cybercat (4270) - Georgia, USA - JUN 18, 2015
Pours hazy, barely translucent golden yellow with a thick snow-white head. Sour citrus dominates the flavor while letting yeasty and butterscotch hrs peek through. Flavor is fruity and a little sour, with malty and yeasty underpinnings and a hint of lemon. Mouthfeel is fairly fizzy and form. Get your funk on!

Terminus (3407) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 16, 2015
Bottle America’s answer to Saison DuPont. Hazy yellow hue with a nice soapy white head. Nose is very funky husky slightly mineral aspects. flavors of funk husky malt tart spice. Body is crisp and full without being too big. A very solid Saison! nothing crazy, just good!

SHIG (4045) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - JUN 14, 2015
Bottle thanks to arminjewell, shared at Anchorage tasting June ’15: Popped the top and this came alive, gushing carbonation. Poured hazy yellow with white head. Aroma was barnyard funk. Taste is funky, citrus fruit, and apple. This was bottled in Jul ’13, even though I enjoyed it might have spent a little to long in my cellar.
