This rustic belgian Saison was brewed to showcase our gorgeously expressive Farmhouse yeast strain imported from the Hainaut province in Belgium. When fermented at elevated temperatures pushing 90 degrees F, we are able to pull out complex flavors and aromas of lemon, pepper, clove, and tart citrus.
We crafted this special beer by adding 16 pounds of organic dried Hibiscus Flowers in the mash tun with Belgian Pilsner malt and German Pale Wheat malt of the absolute highest quality.
The addition of this flower, also known as the “Rose Mallow”, lends a pleasant tartness, floral aromas, and smooth quality to Efflorescence that compliment the profile of our special yeast strain.
Efflorescence is an extraordinary example of a classic farmhouse ale that has become a
standard in the Funk Brewing repertoire due to its delicate complexity, session-ability, and
wide appeal to both the novice drinker and the experienced farmhouse connoisseur.
