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.

750 ml bottle served in a Half Acre snifter. Thank to pmoney for the share. A: Pours a deep hazy amber color with a frothy white head forming on the pour. It recedes slowly with great head retention. Sticky sheets of lace are left down the glass. S: Spicy yeast notes and big citrus orange juice dominate the nose. A banana bread-like sweetness takes over on the backend. T: Spicy Belgian yeast. Fruity esters with a light banana presence and a ton of orange juice pulp flavor. Some light musty notes and a touch of grainy malt sweetness. Orange zest with some mineral-like qualities to the finish. M: Sweet and musty finish with a medium light body. Drying finish with a medium carbonation level. O: I enjoyed the juicy and zesty-like qualities of this one. I’d definitely try this one again. Serving type: bottle

750 ml bottle from adnielsen. Thanks, Aaron. Pours a mellow hazed golden hue, some sunshine hues glow. A bit white head atop dies to a small layer, laces small. Aromas offer funk, straw, and grass. A bigger waft of fruit into the equation with some melon, apple, pear, and citrus. Gentle doughy malts start to come out, cereal, some tangerine, citrus, and melon. Initial is a bit bigger, touches of sweet grains mix with fruit, tropical fruit, melon, and citrusy lemon. Gentle dryness, middle shows the malt heft, more fruit as we trail out into a more dry and bitter backend, a touch hoppy bitterness, dry hay and grass, florals. Lots of fruit elements, gentle yeast. A bit of an odd bag. I’d probably like it more with a smaller malt bill.

Lukaduke (2549) - Portland, Maine, USA - DEC 31, 2012
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 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.
