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.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
A- Tangerines, black pepper, citrus.
A- Orange color, super cloudy liquid, large white frothy head.
T- Tangerines, black pepper, lemon zest, balanced.
P- Medium body, average texture, medium carbonation, smooth fruity finish.
O- What an outstanding beer. The description says it all. The palate starts out with a pepper kick and immediately dissipates and turns into a tangerine fruity finish with just a subtle bitterness. There isn’t much to dislike about this beer. It is all it says it is and more. The pepper and fruit notes work together very well and make for an exceptionally complex beer.
