COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our goal at Funkwerks is to make good beer for our customers. Our intention was not to disrespect the Māori people or their culture in naming our Māori King beer. Out of respect, we are re-branding this beer as Tropic King. This is our new Imperial Saison! Bursting with a lot of fruity tropical characteristics of passionfruit, mango, and peach from the New Zealand Rakau hops we used. Combined with the pepper and Ginger flavors produced by our house yeast, this is a flavor extravaganza.

Hazy golden color with a medium sized, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of vanilla, toasty yeast, tropical, citrus fruits, and light spices. Taste of toast, light sweetness, tons of citrus and tropical fruits, semi sweet finish.

Pours beautifully with a hazy blonde light orange body and quite large creamy white head. The aroma bring dry tropcial fruits and fresh saison yeast. Flavor is dry as well bringing some spicy saison yeast and a very bubbly body.

Bottle thanks to adnielson coming throug honce again ! Pours a rich golden slightly hazy color with a big frothy three finger head. On the nose there is some nice earthy yeasty saison spice mingling nicely with tropical fruit and some sweet notes of bubblegum... On the palate its clean and refreshing with great mouthfeel, a really nice balance between traditional saison peppery spice with some tropical fruit and grassy hops. Nice solid beer that was spot on with my sushi dinner !

Bottle poured a clear honey color with a huge long lasting fluffy white head and notable lacing. Aroma is quite sweet with big honey, pineapple, and mango notes. Taste includes apple, pear, banana, and floral notes. Enjoyable slight carbonation with a crisp finish and flavors lingering.

DSG (6352) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - DEC 12, 2012
Bottle sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel Florentin. Thanks eyes_wide_shut and YK23. As Funkwerks Tropic King Imperial Saison. Hazy golden with big frothy white head. Aroma of carambolka, pear, a bit of peaches, more fruits and some earthy yeast. Fruity and spicy flavor with yeast and a dry and rather bitter finish with a bit of citric notes. Medium-bodied. Good stuff. Alcohol is pretty well-hidden.

I was expecting to really like this one but it just didn’t come together for me. I love tropical fruits but this one just didn’t hit the right notes.

Aroma is tropical fruit and citrus. Taste is a smooth bitterness with more tropical fruit, brett funk and a dry finish with lingering bitterness.

On tap at Rackhouse Pub and served to me in a snifter. Yellow orange color, soapy head, looks good. Smells very yeasty, overpowering. It also tastes very yeasty, I got a bit of bubblegum but none of the tropical fruits promised by the description and New Zealand hops. Overall I much preferred the regular saison.

Bottle. Cloudy orange-brown with a hig, fine head. Funky, dusty nose with a bit of veggies and some spice. Estery flavor, peaches, dust, sweet! Bit too sweet and estery for a saison, but interesting and decent.

Bomber. Thanks to Albert of AQ. Big yeasty and mildly fruity nose. Very pretty golden straw color with a fine delicate head. Mild, sweet initial; bitterness rises in mid palate; smooth lemony finish. Thin-medium body. Very good, mild-mannered, but maybe too sweet as a saison.
