Year of New Beer: Funken City Barrel Aged Wild Saison, Insight Brewing (Minneapolis)
Written By: Dion on 03/11/2017
Crazy nose that hits you with waves of fruit, funk, and spice layered over delicious hints of bourbon and earthy wood. On the tongue, an initial tartness with a bit of apple is intertwined with honey and that underlying bourbon heat. Very light pepper and dusty oak combine nicely with the citrusy hop presence. Nothing really stands out from the tequila barrels, but I think a lot of the tropical, sweeter aspects of this brew can be attributed to it. So much going on here that it's difficult to really do it justice with words. Simply one of the best barrel aged funky beers I've had.
