Pour out of 750 mL bottle, thanks Brandon for the pour! Slightly hazy orange with fluffy white head, aroma brought notes of slight apricot, wet grain, biscuit, bread, some yeast and slight spice, touch of grass, very muddled and hardly any fruit. Taste is a mix of wet bready malts, muddled apricot and vanilla, touch of grain, grass and slight yeast, some watery mineral notes as well, finishing fairly sweet but not much there.

Bottle at Dadtoberfest. Hazy gold with a white head. Peachy sweetness, light peppery spices, with some funky/musky notes in the background. I don’t know what the hell is going on here, but it’s pretty good.

douglas88 (9572) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 8, 2012
Bottle thanks to Dallas. I’m 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.

3fourths (9357) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 15, 2012
bottle. well, it smells like drywall and chalk powder and concrete mix with starchy dried apricots and minor notes of acetone / chemicals / hairspray. medium-light body thinning to a watery finish, as most other Funkwerks beers are. pasty, chalky, medium-low acid, medium+ tartness, low bitterness, mostly dry but completely watery and peaked texture. neutral flavor, decent for most of the drink but falling off at the end (sour cream and stale fruit). ginger? maybe a little bit, and old and stale. grains of paradise? nope. no wood, no herb, no spice at all. peppercorns? hard to tell. apricot? sure, but it’s extremely muted by the muddy, neutral yeast. disappointing.
