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.

"Bright, vibrant, fruity, yeasty, just what I was looking for. Aroma of yeast, light hops and lots of passion fruit & mango. Flavor much the same. Refreshing and complex at the same time. Very nice."

Golden, lightly cloudy, and very fizzy. It definitely has a tropical fruit smell so the name is fitting. Aroma of honey, pineapple, grapefruit, and grass. Interesting flavor that is hard to pin down. Sweet, lightly fruity, with some all spice. Aftertaste similar to that of grapefruit. Complex and very enjoyable.

Tropic King Very nice clarity, golden 3 finger super meringue head thatt fades slowly with a sticky head. Nose is nice. Fruity, lots of peach and papaya and mango with a touch of brett funk, ropey leather.Mmm, this is pretty nice. Obviously, it’s very fruity, almost too much like a fruit salad bar. Lots of kiwi, pineapple, mango. It’s rustic, funky, bitter with a slight medicinal finish.

CanIHave4Beers (3327) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - JUL 24, 2014
Bottle, in a location remote from my dining room.
Pours a very hazy blonde with a very small head.

The aroma is peachy and spicy with some floral and peppery notes. The alcohol does really come through in the aroma with this one.

The flavor is a touch sweet with some warming booziness. It’s got some fun passion fruit character, some black pepper, and fruity hops. It’s odd, but nice in many ways.

ClubGonzo (4159) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 24, 2014
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy golden body with a large rocky white head. Aroma is sweet estery sugar tones, red fruits, mild farmhouse yeasty brett-like notes and hints of gooseberries. Taste is grass, herbs, smokey cheese tones, red berries and hints of citric peel and grapefruit. Medium body and carbonation. Quite well-rounded and fruity saison.

Flaska från SB. Jag har lite svårt för stora starka saisoner, tycker att det tar bort det väsentliga i stilens karaktär. Stor kropp med maltkropp, lite söt, fruktig med jämn och fin smak som avrundas med en fin beska. Smakbild med jäst, gröna druvor, citrus, grapefrukt, papaya, passionsfrukt, gräs, med toner av örter och peppar. Trevlig helt klart och ändå inte riktigt min öl.
