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.

cheap (4109) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 21, 2012
Rated at the 2012 RB Pgh May tasting. Big thanks to Horny Devil. Nice big foamy head. A slightly fruity aroma with a farmy background. Lots of co2 on the palate but its a gentle non-sizzling kind of co2; nice. Burns a little going down the hatch. Fading lacing. Volatile on the olfactory after a while. Fairly alky forward. Finish is warming.

travita (4053) - Frisco, Texas, USA - MAY 10, 2012
Bottle. Orange colored, off white head, decent lacing, and cloudy. The smell is yeasty, fruits, earth, Belgian, and sweet. The taste is the same with a little more funk and alcohol.

It was decent, but kind of a let down for my first Funkwerks beer.

Gription79 (2282) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - APR 28, 2012
Thanks to Craig. Huge tropical fruit notes, sweet malts, dusty notes in the nose, lemony, spicy. A solid bitterness that gets followed by a malty sweetness and a carbonic finish. I did not really care for this.

Aml42000 (622) - Washington, USA - APR 23, 2012
This shows all the qualities of classic saison, but brings a complex, fruity aspect to both nose and palate. Peach and Asian pear add to the herbal/funky nature of the beer. Beautiful mouthfeel.

Big thanks to fortsambo for sending this bottle out my way. Thanks also to rake for sending this in the Sour, Saison, & Funk BIF. Served in a Funkwerks tulip. Pours a nice golden color with a thick, foamy white head and a good bit of sheety lacing on the way down. Good cap and collar throughout. The nose has some light fruits and a bit of white pepper. Light perfume and floral hops. The hops come out a bit more in the flavor. Nice Belgian varieties. Light bready malt. Touch of earth. Body is light-medium with good carbonation. Semi-dry finish. Nice beer. Would like a bit more yeast character for a beer of this size, but still quite good.
