Funkwerks "Cherry Saison"
Funkwerks - Fort Collins, Colorado USA
Saison (ABV 9.5%)

[Suggested Glassware: Tulip Glass]


Rating: 3.7/5.0

Aroma: 7/10
Appearance: 4/5
Taste: 8/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 15/20

The pour was a murky mahogany brown with an average (1-2 finger) light brown fizzy head that was mostly diminishing, down to a thin film and large collar which lasted throughout and produced superb sheeting of lacing.

The aroma was of a light grain malt and a funky Brett yeast with notes of cherries, coriander, chocolate and a mild sourness.

The taste was sweetly tart with notes of cherry and a touch chocolate throughout, with the finish having a nice tart spiciness and a slight alcohol tinge. The flavor lasted an average time after the swallow with a tart fruity taste lingering on for a short while longer.

Mouthfeel was between light and medium in body and dry in texture with a champagne like carbonation.

Overall I found this brew to be quite fruity and refreshing, with a subtle sourness and an awesome drinkability, which allowed for the high ABV to be “almost” virtually undetectable. This is one to watch out for, it goes down way to easy for such a high ABV. Just sayin’…
