UPDATED: NOV 12, 2011 Tap @ Funkwerks. Light yellow and a bit hazy appearance with a medium
sized head and quite similar in appearance to a Belgian Witbier. Light malty nose with yeast, some citrus, and a tinge of spicy wildness. Body is light bodied and crisp thanks to the Pils malts with a dull yeast flavor and a touch of citrus. Light and easy drinking without a ton of flavor. arminjewell (9584) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - NOV 17, 2011

UPDATED: SEP 12, 2011 draft. unfiltered and cloudy golden wheat body. muddy and estery pilsner malt nose (baked crackers, dough, mild sweetness) with some wort / brewhouse rawness. effervescent and zesty with white pepper phenols and orange flesh fruitiness. pils malt is mildly rough and astringent, giving it a baked cracker crispness in the finish, and while the belgian yeast doesn’t seem to pair so well with the pils malt snappiness and roughness, it’s still delicious and well-made, and at 5% it’s definitely sessionable, which isn’t the case with many of funkwerks’ other saisons.

On tap at the brewery. Pours with a clear yellow body and a voracious, white head. Aromas are grassy, funk, peppery, ginger, grassy, malty, bready and phenolic/spicy. Flavors are lightly tarty, pretty subdued yeast character, ginger, bready, orange, somewhat crisp. Lightly grassy. Tasty. Lively bubbles and dry as always!
Absolutely excellent session beer (despite my rating numbers, this would be a beer I’d want to drink every day)! notalush (5866) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 26, 2011
Tap at Funkwerks - more like a cross between a golden ale and a pils, but since they seem to use the same yeast for everything, I suppose the saison designation works - pils malt is showcased well here - smooth and lager-like - chalky a bit through the middle - a bit of spiciness from the yeast - peppery - yeastiness and a bit of perfumey aromatics - dry, biscuity finish - easy drinking and flavorful for something so light.
