  • Brew: Saison Belgian-Style Ale
  • Style: Farmhouse / Saison
  • Serving: 12 ounce bottle
  • ABV: 6.8%
  • Pour: The funkwerks Saison pours slightly hazy bright yellow hue with a frothy, 1-finger bright white head that dissipates quickly, leaving only a very thin ring with virtually no lacing.
  • Nose: The nose is fruity, tart, floral, spicy, and slightly funky.  There are aromas of fresh plum, lemon juice, white grapes, tangerines, wet leather, cloves, and a hint of funk.
  • Taste: It is fruity, tangy, spicy, and slightly funky.  There are notes of passionfruit, tangerine,  lemon juice, Chardonnay, light grain, light and very light barnyard funk. 
  • Mouthfeel: Light to medium in body and well carbonated, the mouthfeel is crisp, frothy, quite tart, and tangy, yet very smooth with a clean, dry finish.

Overall pairing: The Saison from funkwerks is a bright, fruity, tart, complex, and very crushable brew, which makes for a great juxtaposed pairing to the chaotic and aggressive grooves of the brilliant grooves and by Soulfly!!  'Nuff said!

Saude and hails!
