Funky Buddha Last Buffalo in the Park
22 oz. bottle shared by seeswo - thanks again, Chris! Pours a deep, dark, nearly opaque brown with slight amber highlights on the edges and a small tan head that settles into a lasting ring. So the coconut here is gigantic, as most others have mentioned. It surprised me to see it rated so high, even at this early juncture, given that coconut can be a polarizing ingredient. Supporting notes of coffee - which would be a pretty good dose if the coconut weren’t so forward - cocoa, caramel, toasted brown sugar, and mild warming bourbon throughout. Medium-full bodied, with modest carbonation and a sweet, mildly roasty, but mostly sweet mouthfeel. It has an almost oily texture, but that could’ve just been my mind playing with me after one friend winced and said, "Whoa, sun tan lotion!" He’s not entirely wrong, but still, I liked this one a lot for the most part.

Funky Buddha Morning Wood
Is this even a beer? Not convinced of that. But it’s definitely one of my favorite guilty pleasures.

Funky Buddha Double Brown Ale - French Toast
Was not a huge fan of this one. Very thin and zero maple flavor. Looking forward to trying the BA version.

Funky Buddha Snowed In - Bourbon Barrel
I’m usually not a big fan of coconut beers but this one is exceptional. Very well-balanced and not boozy at all.

Funky Buddha / Short’s Tip Ta Tip
Pours a hazy golden brown on tap with fluffy off-white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of lots of fruity and spicy esters with a hint of oak. Taste is more toward the spice and a hint of herbal qualities. Booze is well hidden, interesting for sure, tasty.

Funky Buddha Undefeated Saison
Bottle from Beer Frog. Pours a copper with a white head. Nose is grape must, sweet malt, spice, pepper, and a nice yeast presence. Flavor is similar with a grape must, champagne yeast, pepper, mild lemon, citrus, and some malt character. Medium to full in body for the style and it has some underlying DuPont tones. Lingering grapes into the finish and a nice saison overall. PHINS UP!

Funky Buddha Key Lime Berliner Weisse
My Bottom Line:
Generous lime and its acidity are met by precise salt and sugar in this pleasant ceviche-invoking Berliner Weisse.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam circles the whitish blond.
-The smooth bubbling due to the Western tap serving doesn’t help the mouthfeel that much. Would have helped if it were more effervescent, or drier-feeling.
-This actually drinks like a real Berliner though, so extra points for dosage with the adjuncts! This beer doesn’t feel artificial (contrary to their Maple Bacon Coffee Porter).
-Extra point also for pulling off this high level of drinkability (oysters, lime juice, lactobacillus, authenticity nonetheless, etc.).

On tap at the brewery tasting room.

Funky Buddha Hop Stimulator
My Bottom Line:
Honeyed cereals support floral and citrusy hops, as a grassy predominance rises midway alongside alcohol heat and residual sugars.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A healthy head of foam covers the gleaming orange.
-Mouthfeel is a tad too oily for my liking in the style.
-Alcohol is quite present in this one.
-This is a good hoppy strong ale, but it drinks like a Triple IPA.

Bottle.
