On tap at Rackhouse. Pour is pale, hazy lemon with with a small white head and great lacing. Grain, pepper, rotten apricots, plastic and cherry pie in the aroma. Taste is very bland with notes of corn, cereal, apricot, and pepper. Light body with high carbonation. Really a let down.

Bottle thanks to Dallas. Im trying to leave and this guy keeps on cracking:) Nice work man! Pours a cloudy orange/yellow color with a medium white head. A spicy banana nose with some straw and fruit. The flavor is peppery, tropical at times, big banana, dry, big flavors and unusual. Decent.

Poured from a 750 ml bottle, thanks mom. Fruity, malty, spices, stoned fruit. The spices and yeast do not blend well together. Meh.

Sample at the brewery. Comes hazy gold with an average white head. Aroma of spices and malt. Taste is malt, ginger, yeast, and ginger. OK

On hand at Wynkoops United Tastes of Belgium 2012. Slightly hazy light gold in color, with a peppery apricot-y aroma atop some Belgian pale graininess. Flavor was nice and eccentric, with apricot and peppercorn and grains of paradise coming through very well. Finished a little grainy and funky, but still fun to drink.

My least favorite of the Funkwerks lineup. Aroma was unpleasantly sour - like overripe and slightly rotten apricots or grapefruit so ripe theyve fallen from the tree. Flavor is overly acidic and sour with no balance - dry and fruity in the extreme without any balancing malty or sweet character. Too one-sided, even for a sour style.

Beaver (1773) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 15, 2012
750 ml bottle. Pours slightly hazy straw yellow with a medium creamy white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is fruits (apricot), bready malts and spicy earthy yeast.

The flavor is sweet citric fruits with some spicy peppery yeast. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and fairly watery.

Overall, a nice fruity summer beer. Good blend of the fruits and the yeast.

Bottle. Pours hazy dark gold with a large, frothy white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is apricot, grains of paradise, light biscuit malt, heavier straw and meal malt notes, pepper and ginger, and barnyard yeast. Flavor is malt forward with barnyard yeast, light hops and medium bitterness, pepper, apricot, and ginger with a dry finish. Medium-light body, medium carbonation.

Crushed on tap at Backcountry Pizza. Hazy yellow, opaque pour with a white head. Aroma dominated by pepper and ginger. Searched for apricot, but couldnt find any. Ginger dominates the flavor, with more pepper and even a bit salty. Respect to Funkwerks, but this one didnt work for me. Couldnt finish it.
