3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewery. Poured a bright, semi-hazy golden orange color with a moderate white head that faded to a partial layer. Aroma is heavily peppered, along with a spiciness from the earthy yeast and the fruits present (tangerine, peach, and mango). Smooth, moderately sweet entry with some sweet fruitiness (peach, tangerine) before giving way to a moderately dusty, dry yeastiness with a nice peppery compliment that lingers into the dry finish where it is paired with a soft tropical fruitiness. Moderate carbonation and crisp, lively mouth feel. Overall, a real nice mixture of dry earthiness and fruity flavors.

"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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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.
