3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. The pour was a murky pale yellow with an average sized (1-2 finger) white creamy head that reduced to a thin cap, which produced excellent sheets of lacing.
The aroma was of a mild bread malt with a strong presence of a funky horse blanket Belgian yeast and had notes of citrus (lemon peel), coriander and some light fruity esters (banana and apple).
The taste was rather yeasty with a mild hint of a fruit from the onset and finished with a strong wheat flavor that had notes of coriander and a mild citrus peel bitterness. The flavor lasted only a short while after the initial swallow with a nice spicy yeast taste that hung on a bit longer.
Mouthfeel was light in body and somewhat watery in texture with a solid medium carbonation.
Overall a fantastic Witbier that possessed a nice mild spicy citrus presence along with a light and enticing fruitiness. Simply enjoyable...

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
August 9th, 2013 - In my kind funkwerks’ White is the icon of the brewery, and the centerpiece of their set up. With a big, rapid roiling type head and a lovely buttery smell, it begins soft and delicate - true to Funkwerks’ style - with a parmesan cheese and buttery smell, sautéed Dover sole flavor, complete with the capers and lemons, and some banana and kumquats to sweeten the pot. The palate is spritzy, inflating like a balloon, and radiating with flavors of popcorn, butter, and lemon. The flavor is light and elegant, and ever so slightly sweet, with a glow of braised pear as it warms. The whole experience is like a classic French meal in a bottle, but lightened up, leaving me hungry for a trip to Europe and a plate of fresh fish drowning in fats.

On tap at the source (GABF weekend) - Hazed yellow pour with minimal white head. Smell is light fruity yeast, citrus, spice. Taste is lemony, spice, yeast, bready. Nice white brew with just a bit more flavor and pop than the standard. Would kill this in warm weather.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft at the source, says 5.1%abv, pours hazed gold with white head. Aroma has lots of white pepper, coriander, funky yeast. Flavors have a brett character, wheat malt presence, lots of white pepper, some coriander and chamomile, firm bitterness, I’m enjoying the yeast profile. Slightly tart lemon and orange citrus finish. Great stuff.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Funkwerks. Yellow and hazy with a frothy white head and light lacing. Wheat malts, citrus fruits, spices and hay make up the aroma. Similar flavor, zesty, crisp and dry with black pepper. Light to medium body with a soft smooth feel. Refreshing stuff.
