Funky Buddha Nib Smuggler Chocolate Milk Porter 3.3
Bottle at the Rate Beer Awards Festival Hotel Bottle Share. Nose of chocolate, coffee, vanilla. Very sweet vanilla, chocolate, and lactose creamy flavor. Too sweet and additive-infested for me.

Funky Buddha Maple Bacon Coffee Porter 4.1
Sampled during RBWG Tampa 2015. Brown pour with a small tan head. Nose is complex, engaging. Bright espresso. Sweet shocks of maple nut bar. Some vanilla. Rocky road fudge. Flavor is similar but with a nice smoked malt element. Glazed donut. Great harmony between what could be an overpowering, unruly set of flavors. Full body, supple. Oily.

Funky Buddha Morning Wood 4.5
yea, this one earned it. It was incredible. Tons of ADJUNCTS that were well used and perfectly balanced. The barrel aging added in impressive amount of complexity without losing any of those adjuncts.

Funky Buddha Morning Wood 4.1
Pours an opaque black from the bomber with thin wispy tan head that leaves light lace. Aroma of sweet maple syrup notes over hints of vanilla and coffee. Taste follows, wow, just amazing, chocolate and maple galore. Medium body, minimal carbonation, booze really well hidden, really nice.

Funky Buddha Strawberry Shortcake Wheat Wine 2.7
Draft Extreme Beer Fest 2016. Hazy golden in color with particles floating around in the liquid. Aroma is really awesome, pie crust malt, bread and light notes of strawberry. The short cake really works in the aroma.

I had hopes for this based off the aroma. Unfortunately the strawberry comes off in an artificial Strawberry taffy nuance. Sickly sweet strawberry. The body is medium leaning on full from malts and maybe yeast. Damn, it’s just overly fake sweetness. This is the first beer I have had from this brewer that was a complete swing and a miss. Strike three, take the bench.

Funky Buddha Floridian Hefeweizen 3.6
It’s refreshing to see an "American Hefe" that’s true to the German style. I don’t think there is such thing as an American hefe. Huge thanks to Keven for sharing this. Pours a tang color with a big bubble head. Aroma of orange fruit, wheat and yeast. Drinks juicy, wheat forward, with a cool, yeast finish. What a hefe is supposed to be. Very enjoyable.

Funky Buddha The Love Below 3.9
Draft Extreme Beer Fest 2016. Dark black with a oily sheen on top the stout. Aroma is mild port wine, chocolate and hints of bourbon.

Flavor is rich and decadent. The cherry flavor comes off more like a red grape or port wine hint. Carbonation is low with a slick /oily texture over the palate. Lots of barrel character. Oak, bourbon, mild red Brandy. The flavors come together nicely. Full thicker body with a soft mouthfeel. Nicely done.

Rated on 02-03-2016. Bottled on 12-28-2015. This beer’s appearance is a medium sized off-white head that is mostly lasting, transparent amber body, fast rising carbonation, and spotty lacing. The aroma presents citrus , pine hops, tropical fruits, grapefruit, pineapple, lemon, some spice, and caramel malt. The flavor presents a moderate bitterness, citrus hops, grapefruit, some spice, tropical fruits, lemon, and caramel malt. The mouthfeel is moderate carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. A very quaffable IPA with a moderate bitter aftertaste. The taste is flavorful as it’s not overly hoppy or bitter for the beer style.

Funky Buddha Nib Smuggler Chocolate Milk Porter 3.8
Bottled 11/24/2015 enjoyed in a Mad Elf tulip. Look - A lot of sediment, it turns the dark brown body almost reddish brown. No lacing. No head left after a while. Head is tan when there. 4 Smell - Coke. Chocolate. Sweet. Raspberry. Taste - Chocolate. Coke. Dr. Pepper. Sweet. Feel - Not carbonated. Milky. Overall - Crazy murkiness. One of the most pop forward beers I’ve had. Not something to write home about. Milk stouts have really stopped appealing to me.

Funky Buddha Floridian Hefeweizen 3.4
This is a little different than the normal average Hef. Has a semi-clear yellow to light orange appearance. Filtered more so loses some of that yeasty flavor, yet gives it a smoother and crisp feel. Some fruity flavors like mild orange and mango. Also tasting some nuttiness. I’d get this again.

Funky Buddha Hop Gun IPA 3.1
J’ai l’impression que celle-ci est trop vieille, d’où ma note ;-( Aucune, je dis bien aucune, effervescence, un tas de matières en suspension, et une évidente oxydation... Ça doit être plutôt bon frais mais là, c’est très ordinaire.

Funky Buddha Hop Gun IPA 3.8
Pours orange with small head. Aroma: mango, pineapple, a touch of peach, citrus, but also a little bit of pine tree. Taste: nice citrus and bitterness, with a bit of malty sweetness. I very much like the palate - not too bitter, but lasts pretty long.

Funky Buddha Big Guava Jelly Blonde 2.7
Draft... Murky milk-colored pour with a mid-sized, fluffy, white head. I’m not picking up much of an aroma - maybe some light breadiness, soapiness and a rumor of fruitiness. Light-bodied with lazy carbonation. The flavor offers little to nothing - maybe some yeastiness. There’s no fruit here. A refreshing glass of nothingness. Big-time "meh" here.

Funky Buddha Hop Gun IPA 3.9
Clear gold with a tall, dense off-white head. Aroma is citrus and pine resin. The flavor is moderate bitterness that is well supported, but not dominated by, a smooth malt sweetness. Very nice IPA.
