3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thanks Dan! Pours a peach orange with a fairly large white head. Nose is grainy with a very prominent saison yeast and citrus fruit, more mango/pineapple as it opens. Soft fruits in the front palate with a pretty dry mid and a long finish with that saison yeast. Carbonation level is really high. Pretty enjoyable.

On tap @Backcountry Pizza in Boulder. Pours a hazy deep orange, big pillows of yellow head, leaving nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of mangoes, papaya, caramel malt, yeast. Taste is slightly tart/citrus, sweet, very fruity with a round mouthfeel. Balanced well with a little hop flavor, dry finish. Aftertaste has a hint of mango and citrus hops.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bottle that my sister-in-law brought back from Denver, thanks Alyssa! Bottled as Tropic King at 7.5% ABV. Pours a cloudy, darker gold colored body with a big, two finger-width, pillow-soft, frothy and foamy, white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is really nice. A bit of a white pepper blends with some crisp, very lightly sweetened wheats and grainy pale malts along with a good amount of fruitiness. Tropical fruits with a distinct passion fruit and mango as well as some citruses giving this a touch of zest. A light bread, some peach, apricot, grass, and a hint of ginger. Flavor is slightly tart initially with some peppered yeast, citrus, and light wheat notes. Tropical fruits come along in the middle as the wheat malts and lightly sweetened pale malts get a bit grainy alongside the yeasty pepper. A touch of ginger towards the end as well as some peach and melon fruits before this finishes with a good amount of yeasty white pepper, a light grassy bitterness, some slightly tart citruses, and just a slightly noticeable heat. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium body and a lively carbonation. Overall, a pretty solid saison. I really dug the aroma and the flavor was nice as well. Yeasty, fruity, and crisply malted with a lively carbonation. Nice beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This poured a semi cloudy lighter orange color with a white head. Aroma was lots of yeasty notes, some light citrus fruits and some grain. Flavor was grainy, lighter malt, some spice and yeast notes, with light fruit. A bit over carbonated but overall a decent beer.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.
