Funk Factory Geuzeria Foeder Saison: Vintage Hallertau
What the brewers say
Foeder-fermented saison dry hopped with aged whole-leaf Hallertau hops from the 2014 harvest season.
What our panel thought
Fascinating aroma: juicy white grape, drier red wine, phenolic spice, cellar-floor funk. Flavor joins light bread and stone fruit with funk and spice. Moderate acidity draws the juicy impression over light, dusty bitterness. Dry, delicate, funky, complex—a wallflower with a lot to say.
What our editors thought
Cacophonous but intriguing nose—jagged pineapple and lime cross paths with spicy herb and funk. Likewise, the sip is endearingly off-kilter, as soft lime sherbet, gentle herbal spice, and pineapple highlights dominate the sip. Up and down, it’s a wild ride.
