750 ml bottle, bottled 12/13/13. Pours clear orange amber with a smallish creamy white head that goes to a thin film and leaves a little lacing.

The aroma is lots of sweet and acidic peach with some earthy alcohol.

The flavor is sweet peach with earthy acidic brett and a bit of boozy alcohol. The mouthfeel is a little thin and watery.

Overall, a bit thin and boozy. but I like the peach added to the tropic king.

A lot of brett with the subtle sweetness of the peach. Works really well together. This is the funkiest beer I have had from Funkwerks. Very different from the regular Tropic King

Bottle absconded by Sasha from GRG1313's tasting (which I missed).

A: Pours and murky hazed orangish yellow with a thin white head which fades to a cap and yields spotty lace.

N: Peach whiskey dominates with some woody barrel notes.

Taste: Follows nose with faint Saison yeast and typical spices of cracked black pepper and grassy hay.

M: Semi-moderate body and carbonation. Sweetish peach boozy wood finish.

O: Nice combo and enjoyed.

Thanks to GRG1313 for sharing this one at his tasting.

Bottled 12/13/13.

Pours a clear orange with a foamy off-white head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, yeast, and peach whiskey aromas. Taste is much the same with slightly sour fruit, wood, and butter flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of wood bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a nice peach whiskey barrel aged presence.

Pours golden with a slight orange hue and a light white head. Aroma is heavy on the peach whiskey in a good way, a touch caramel, some fruitiness from the saison, and spicy. A little time has done this beer well as the flavor gels a little better now; peach whiskey barrel is still in the forefront, but the rest comes in nicer now with some spiciness, fruitiness, florals, and a little toasty caramel. A crisp, active mouthfeel. Overall, tried this fresh and with a about a month and a half of age to it, it definitely improved with the added time. Still would have liked more saison presence, but even with that said, definitely dug this.
