Funky Buddha Brewery Reviews

Funky Buddha Floridian Hefeweizen
Fruity - banana - nose with a little clove. Cloudy, dark golden pour with thick persistent foam. Dry wheat at first quickly gives way to banana and spice. Medium carbonation with slick mouthfeel. Maltiness around the edges and some citrus too. Maybe some yeast on the end. Certainly a sweet example of a wheat beer.

Funky Buddha Blueberry Cobbler
Distinct berry nose with maybe some spice (cinnamon)? Pours cloudy reddish with pinkish foam. The taste is remarkably like blueberry cobbler with a little bit of citrus. The taste is sweet but not unctuous. Moderately fizzy. The finish is also sweet but not sticky.

Funky Buddha Double Brown Ale - French Toast
Tallahassee, Fl. - on tap at Proof Brewing. Dark brown pour, slight khaki colored head, decent lacing. Sweet french toast aroma hints of maple syrup, eggs and butter. Yes, it does taste like French Toast with maple syrup, could be cloying, bit it is not. Could have a bit of a thicker mouthfeel, Nice novelty.

Funky Buddha Double Brown Ale - French Toast
Delicious, sweet aroma, like snorting cinnamon pancakes. Very dark, semi clear, not much head. Pretty sweet, spicy, moderately acidic. Incredible dessert beer, but I wouldn’t want more than a couple of ounces. Sticky. On tap, Proof Production.

Funky Buddha No Crusts
Sampled at Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2014. Session 4. Pours clear amber with a creamy, white head. Tasty, with notes of berries, peanuts. Pretty good balance, moderately sweet. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Finishes with more fruity character and impressions of peanut butter. Novel. Not bad.

Funky Buddha Hop Stimulator
Tasted from bottle. Pours a hazy copper white white head. Aroma is more malt forward with caramel and toffee notes, some herbal notes and a faint citrus aroma. Taste is well balanced with citrus and tropical hop flavors, caramel and toffee. Tasted it side by side with Hop Gun and it's a little better flavor but I liked the aroma of Hop Gun a little more. Overall above average for style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Funky Buddha Last Snow Porter
2015 BJCP Category: 30A Spice/Herb/Vegetable (base brew: 20A American Porter)

AROMA: Strong toasted coconut aroma. Smells authentic - not like suntan lotion. Coffee is a light/medium roast. Slight cinnamon. Sweet overall, but not faux or sickly. 11/12

APPEARANCE: Opaque black with faint red highlight. Small, dark tan foam. Some lacing. 2/3

FLAVOR: Sweet, milky/creamy flavor up front (not chocolate). Dark malt but no roast or burnt flavor. Coconut flavor emerges at the apex followed by coffee. Faint cinnamon or other spice in the aftertaste. Flavors all blend quite well. Palette has mellowed after six months, but still delicious and impressive. 17/20

MOUTHFEEL: Medium body with medium/low carbonation. Smooth texture; highly quaffable. No alcohol presence. 5/5

OVERALL IMPRESSION: When fresh, this is an arguably world class S/H/V beer. Even with some age it’s still excellent. 9/10

TOTAL SCORE: 44/50

Funky Buddha More Moro Blood Orange IPA
Extra from jtclockwork-thanks! Ruddy copper color. Malt forward nose with citrus pith. Taste is sweet malt and very bitter orange pith finish. Some blood orange flavor but bitter orange pith detracts rather than enhances.

Funky Buddha Wide Awake It’s Morning
Bottle, new batch, shared by James on 6/10/16.
Deep ebony, of indeterminable clarity with a tan head atop that is large and shows moderately strong-to-strong retention.
After the disaster that was French Vanilla Militia (and most imperial stouts these days, it seems), I was not exactly chomping at the bit to try this, but what a pleasant surprise....dark chocolate combines with maple-like earthy-sweetness (that doesn’t make much sense, I know) and a ton of raisins and vanilla to give a strong aroma but the dark chocolate-like roastiness is ever-present keeping the caramel, raisin, fudge and such from becoming too dominant. Coffee notes are pretty reserved and it’s not a mass of burnt, black, sharp french roast, thankfully. Fruitiness reminds of the best English-style Imperial stouts and there is no sign of the alcohol, in the nose.
Even better, is the flavor, with prune, raisin and creme brulee balancing chocolate, light roast coffee and vanilla-tinged caramel. The flavors are all highly enjoyable and while it’s pretty sweet and fairly thick, both the tight carbonation and fair amount of attenuation coupled with the fruity acidity, make for a surprisingly balanced beer. On the finish of every sip, just as the fudge and caramel is about to take over, the raisin, prune and roasted barley notes dry things out considerably adding a bright zip to the end. No alcohol noted. Very happily finished my glass and then some. Easy drinking.

Funky Buddha The Love Below
From notes. Eddie opened this one with ebone1988 and I. The pour is a thicker light black with a thin ring of light khaki head and a few spots of lace. The aroma is good. There is a nice dark chocolate and cherry that bring what this offers. There is a wineyness to it for sure, and a light bourbon booziness. There is a good combination of barrels here. The flavor is equally good. Lots of wine up front, with a nice bourbon heat on the finish. The chocolate and cherries mingle throughout, and balance nicely. The mouth feel is a little thin with a softer carbonation and an awesome chocolate cherry finish. Funky Budda strikes again!

Funky Buddha Lemon Meringue Berliner Weisse
Funky Buddha Lemon Meringue Berliner Weisse is a dessert in a glass. Pours a hazy yellow with a fluffy white head. Aroma is just like lemon meringue -- lemony and sweet. Taste is more of the that lemon meringue. Not a lot of complexity, but it sure is tasty. Lemon Meringue makes for a refreshing summer drink. Close you eyes and taste the fluffy dessert!

Funky Buddha Wide Awake It’s Morning
#2000. What a journey thus far. Bottle shared in the hotel by ebone1988 for his 1.1k and my 2k rating. The pour is a thick black oily color with a thin film of darker khaki head and no lace to be found. The aroma is excellent. There is a lot of maple and an excellent chocolate. There isn’t a whole lot of coffee, but I’m definitely getting the chocolate and maple. This one should be damn good. The flavor is really chocolatey and mapley up front. There is a resounding bacon aspect to this that just moves in and dominates for a while. Nice roast, good bitterness. It’s got a sweetness on the back on the a decently bitter roast. The mouth feel is lighter tha. I wanted. Medium to heavy body with a nice soft carbonation and a lingeringly bacon-influenced aftertaste. There is a bitter chocolate malt and coffee trying to poke through, but it’s controlled by the bacon. This is a good beer, and I definitely appreciate Eric helping me get to this milestone. Thanks man!
