Funkwerks Nelson Sauvin Single Hopped Saison Ale

Funkwerks Nelson Sauvin. 7.9% Alc. byVol. Funkwerks, Inc.,Fort Collins, CO.

Lightly hazed, beautiful, bright yellow coloring, slimmest, ivory head, lasting long.

Aroma pops out pear and apple, bright citrus, lemon and lime. Succulent fruits, forest floor.

In the mouth: big hops up at the top, a blast of bitterness. Then dry. Totally dries out the mouth. Another sip, more hoppiness, then smooth and easy. Continuing bright and citrusy. Rounding out dry. Good stuff here. Good beer and I'm drinking it.

Gobbledygook: "This single hopped Saison is named after the unique New Zealand hope that has a distinct white wine characteristic. The addition of Muscat grape juice plays into the fruity aromas from the hops and contribute to the crisp, dry finish. Notes of gooseberries, honeydew melon, and a hint of spiciness."
