Funkwerks "Helter Spelter"
Funkwerks - Fort Collins, Colorado USA
Saison (ABV 7.2%)

[Suggested Glassware: Tulip Glass]

Rating: 3.7/5.0

Aroma: 7/10
Appearance: 4/5
Taste: 8/10
Palate: 4/5
Overall: 16/20

The pour was a murky medium brownish orange with an average (1-2 finger) white fluffy head that dissipated very quickly, down to a small collar with poor runny lacing.

The aroma had a big dose of biscuit malts and a funky barnyard Belgian yeast with notes of caramel, citrus (orange), green apple, pears, clove and a bit of a candi-sugar sweetness.

The taste was lightly sweet and acidic with a really nice maltiness and had hints of apple and pear in the beginning, then progressed with a good strong funky yeast presence and a mildly sweet spicy citrus taste towards the end. The flavor was left to linger for an average duration with a malty yeasty fruity taste left lying on the taste buds.

Mouthfeel was somewhere between light and medium in body and mildly dry in texture with a strong lively carbonation.

Overall a nice well balanced brew that had all the components and flavors working in conjunction with each other extremely well...
