COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This light-hued beer was inspired by Belgian Tripels and Golden Strong ales. A high percentage of Pilsner malt and a new yeast strain we used present a lemon character in the aroma. This citrus quality carries into the flavor and finishes with a slight tartness. This beer is well balanced and smooth, making it easy to drink and sightly deceptive because of its high ABV.

Golden in color. Aromas of pineapple and pear. Delicious Belgian esters, without being too malty and sweet. Great Belgian-Style Golden ale! Deceitfully powerful ;)

It’s clear why this beer won gold at gabf. Elegantly done in an in-elegant category from a brewery that specializes in doing elegant styles better than the benchmarks of their original countries. Also, why are all these ratings from Denmark? Didn’t Funkwerks just recently make it to Nebraska? Snag a bottle, the Danes are incorrect.

One of my favorites from Funkwerks. Deliciously dry and crisp. A delightful example of the style. Brewed in the same style as Duvel and it shows!

Bright and very pale yellow with a rocky white head. Lemon and chalky yeast aroma - tart and lactic. Initial sweetness is quicky walloped by that tartness and a bone dry, fully attenuated finish, like chewing on Meyer lemon rind. Tastes as if they snuck some New Zealand hops in there. Evident alcohol. Highly carbonated, but mercifully, less than the benchmark - Duvel, and the lemon notes are an interesting addition. I believe the student has surpassed the master.

Deceit is a great name for an easy-drinking brew with a high alcohol content. With its clean malts, bright yeast, medium carbonation, and lively hop note, it’d be easy to overlook Deceit’s 8.5% ABV. Taste reveals pear, tart apple, lemon, and some spice. Deceit is the sweetest kind of lie. Another great Belgian-style brew from Funkwerks.

swanmann (782) - Nompton, Oklahoma, USA - MAR 12, 2013
Out of the bottle: It’s bright, straw golden in color, hazy, with well sustained, fluffy, sticky white head. Aromas of lemon, citrus, caramel, some booze and biscuit. It tastes sort of like a Saison, but not as dry. It’s tart and fairly sweet, but not nearly as sweet as a trippel. The carbonation is adequate. Holds up fairly well as it warms, with tartness falling back a bit. GREAT BREW!

FROTHINGSLOSH (8267) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 11, 2013
From the September 2013 3R6P tasting +++ Sampled from a 750 ml brown bottle this beer poured a hazy pale yellow color with a large foamy white head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was tangy sugar, ripe golden fruits, bubblegum, bread dough and passion fruit. The flavor was tangy and sweet sugar, golden fruits, bubblegum, bread dough and passion fruit. Long tangy sugar, passion fruit and golden fruit finish. Only a touch boozy with a moderately thick and full body. Quite nice.
