Had as The Funk. Pours cloudy golden with white head. Aroma is lemon with citrus hoppiness, and horse blanket. Nice tart lemon flavor to start followed by floral and citrus finishing with tart and funky yeastiness. Excellent!

Sample at Industry Night at HomeBrewCon.
Lightly fruity earthy spicy with lots of banana in the nose and flavor. Light sweet honey maltiness rounds this out nicely, but I wanted more pepper less fruit.

Draft at the source.
Slightly hazy yellow body with a small white collar. Aromas of banana, clove, citrus. More like a hefe than a saison. Light and slightly sweet. Easy drinking. Pretty good.

Draft at Mad Fox. Pours almost clear amber with a fizzy white head. Tastes like sweet herbs, grapes, apple, light spice, lemon. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like fermenting apples, light herbs and spice, light lemony citrus.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 25, 2014 4 oz draft pour at Mad Fox on 7/14/2014. Clear straw yellow with off-white head. Aromas of citrus fruit and peel, herbs, spices. Tastes of citrus fruit and peel, funk, lemon, spices, floral notes. Medium body with a dry finish. Medium-low carbonation.
Tried the Galactic Funk version on 8/25/2014 which is the saison on cask dry hopped with Galaxy. The Galaxy adds a nice fruitiness to the taste.

Draft->lager at the brewpub. Hazy dark gold with small white head. Herbs, pepper, citrus, bright malt, yeast. To be fair, I am not a fan of saisons in general, but even so, this is a bit of a mess.

UPDATED: DEC 24, 2013 Tap at the brewpub. Pale golden pour with no head. I can’t get much out of this except a huge blast of perfume. Maybe a slight sour element. Bleh.
