Beer | Funkwerks Tropic King Imperial Saison Ale

This floral, lush Imperial Saison Ale from Funkwerks, a brewery based in Ft. Collins, Colo., is truly fucking delightful. Haven’t had a beer in a while that was this fresh tasting, this complex and also this subtle. Brewed with New Zealand Rakau hops, the Tropic King does indeed waft of tropical fruits like mango and passion, while the flavor has a citrus edge sharpened by the peppery ginger piquancy afforded by their house yeast. If you can track a bottle down, buy three.
