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.

Draft. Light golden body with a frothy, white head. Light aroma of pineapple, mango, toasted grain, floral hops, basement. The flavor is moderately to heavily sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture turning sticky, moderate carbonation. Some peppery alcohol in the finish helps erase some of the sweetness. Fruity flavors with a bit of floral and spice from the hops.

"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, itís very fruity, almost too much like a fruit salad bar. Lots of kiwi, pineapple, mango. Itís rustic, funky, bitter with a slight medicinal finish.
