3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Explosive off white head when poured into tulip (New Belgium glass wear). Takes a while to settle into a cloudy dark gold fluid. Yeast and tropical fruits dominate the nose in the form of banana and papaya. Sweetness and a little sour pop at first, with a bitter linger. But lacking body overall.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tropic King is a strange animal of a beer - I mean that in the most complimentary way. The inclusion of New Zealand hops gives this beer a distinct tropical fruit aroma that plays well with the yeast esters. While the flavor isnít as tropical as the aroma or name implies, Tropic King reveals some bittersweet citrusy fruit flavors. Thereís some nice black pepper spice and an earthiness thatís not quite grassy but close. I loved how fresh and crisp this beer felt on the palate. While I didnít love Tropic King as much as Funkwerks Saison, this brew offers a lot of refreshment and unique flavors.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A- Tropical fruits, hoppy, yeasty.
A- Orange color, cloudy liquid, white frothy head.
T- Slightly bitter, bready, tropical fruits, mango, peach, caramel, subtle funk, spices.
P- Medium body, average texture, medium high carbonation, smooth finish.
O- A lot different than I expected. There is bitterness that I didnít expect but wasnít necessarily bad. I was expecting this to be a fruitier version of their flagship Saison. I was quite wrong. This resembles that beer in no ways. I was hoping for a Saison that was full of juicy fruit notes, but this was more like a White IPA. Not bad, but not really what I wanted.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a beautiful clear straw yellow until the settled yeast is added to the glass and fills it with a nice haze. Firm white head that retains itself for quite some time. Aromaís are tropical with pineapple mango and bready notes as well. Smells bright and sunny. Flavors are good sweetness upfront followed by a rustic dryness. Mouthfeel is rich and rounded at first then grainy dry with some spiciness on the finish. Good balance and big flavors on this imperial saison.
