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.

bhensonb (10814) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 2, 2013
Capped 750 from LetsPour.com. Pours translucent gold with a creamy white head. Aroma is earthy/spicy multiple fruits. Full bodied. Flavor is earthy/spicy multiple fruits. Iíd say itís much more tropical fruit than anything else. Fruit wise. The rest is earthy, approaching barnyard. Love the ginger notes. Finishing so complex that I will not attempt the details. Lovely, lovely, ale.
