Funkwerks Tropic King

This 8.0% ABV saison style beer is from Funkwerks of Fort Collins, Colorado. 

The beer pours a hazy apricot in color. There is a very tall, billowing, pillowy, bubbly, head of off-white foam. The aroma is floral first, geraniums and marigolds, with lighter notes of very ripe tropical zone fruits. There is yeast and crackers throughout on the underside of the bigger flowers and fruit. The taste is more balanced, a light and airy blend of big ripe fruits and flowers in full bloom. The flavors are big, yet fall lightly on the tongue in a bubbling torrent of fine bottle-conditioned carbonation. The finish is dry and slightly tart, with a lingering aftertaste of tropical fruits on an ocean breeze. This is a nice take on the saison style.
