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.

On tap at Fate. Pours a hazy orange with an off-white head. Aroma has mostly bizarre butterscotch disk and a bit of vegetal. This was not diacetyl or apparently infected from what I, or the other person sitting next to me could tell. Thick in the body and a touch sweet. Didn’t are for this much.

On draft at Falling Rock Tap House. This has a nice lemon zest to it, along with a subtle funk. Flavor is somewhat tangy but more or less geared around the lemon/fruit/yeast.

Boutip (4637) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 24, 2013
Bottle: Poured a cloudy beige color ale with a large dirty white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of spicy ginger notes with rustic malt and fruity zesty hops. Taste is a great mix between some rustic malt with quite dry aftertaste and some spicy ginger notes with some fruity and zesty hops. Body is full with limited filtration and good carbonation. I really enjoyed this beer but I would have personally prefer less ginger.

750ml bottle in a tulip. Pours amber with a lacy, cream-colored head. Aroma of citrusy and floral hops, spicy yeast and light fruits, plus some pale and caramel malts. Flavor the same with a nice blend of everything. Average texture. A pretty good beer.

joeneugs (3106) - Livermore, California, USA - JUL 20, 2013
750 ml. bottle. It pours a hazy burnt orange color with a massive, fluffy white head. Looks nice. The aroma is rich bready, and lightly floral with some lavender, pepper, some sweet peach, melon and citrus. The flavor is very fruity up front with passionfruit, orange, mango followed by lots of peppery and ginger spices before a bone dry finish. Very intense, but a real joy to drink.

Clean soft blonde pour with an off white head. Fruity aroma with some tropical notes and a bready/yeasty component. Citrusy notes and a peppery bready flavor. Light bodied with a soft carbonation and dry finish.

(old entry on my phone) On draft at the brewery. Slightly hazy orange pour. Tropical nose, malty and citrusy. Nice mouthfeel, funky, fruity and clear. Very nice!

Banana esters, hearty Brett, cloves, overly sweet. Minimally sour, kinda heavy on the yeast, not the most complex. Meh.
