Bottle poured a cloudy blonde hue w/ large white frothy head diminishes to a nice thin cap and some lacing. Nice big aromas of pepper, earth, pineapple and citrus. Flavor is an initial light sweet and finishes with a light sour. Taste is lemon, ginger, leather, and apricot. Light bodied, dry texture, and lively carbonation. Has a thin mouthfeel.

hopscotch (11005) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 9, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 19, 2012 Bottle... Hazy yellow ale with a mid-sized, wispy, white head. Great retention. The aroma furnishes lemon with subtle undertones of barnyard funk and spicy farmhouse yeast. Light to medium-bodied with airy carbonation. The flavor is mildly acidic and citrusy, but is a touch too sweet to really wrap my lips around. Finishes crisp and refreshing at first, then cracker malt sweetness lingers and nearly ruins the entire experience for me. More time in the bottle may improve this one... or not. Bottle courtesy of biggsbowler!

jcnielsen (3399) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - FEB 2, 2013
Bottle courtesy of adnielsen. Thanks bro! Pours a clear yellow with big white head. Grainy, fruity, tart, peppery aromas. Ginger, pepper, fruity flavors. Interesting beer, a lot going on in this one. But it doesnt do it for me.

Gription79 (2885) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - AUG 3, 2012
Poured from a 750 ml bottle, thanks mom. Fruity, malty, spices, stoned fruit. The spices and yeast do not blend well together. Meh.

3fourths (9299) - 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 its extremely muted by the muddy, neutral yeast. disappointing.

arminjewell (9567) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JUL 4, 2012
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.

RobertDale (6226) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - JUL 26, 2012
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

Nikiel (879) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 16, 2012
Bottle with Carla from Liquormart. Pours a hazy light yellow gold with a dusting of white foam. Smells strongly of wheat with hints of coriander. Tastes very fizzy with wheat hints of apricot fuzz.

UPDATED: JUN 17, 2012 Bottle @ Matts house, courtesy of notalush. Thanks Brandon! Hazy, yellow orange appearance with a white head. Somewhat chalky, plastic, rancid apricot, peach, ginger aroma. Rich peppercorn, dull apricot, peach, ginger, earthy, ginger, chalky flavor. Tough to drink.
