A - Orange, murky and hazy with a white pillow head that lingers. Lacing all the way.
S - Yeasty and bananas. Some other tropical scents I can't put my finger on. Slightly bready.
T - Smooth and mellow up front. Midway through it hits with bananas and some funk, then finishes with pleasant citrus hops and alcohol warmth. This is exactly what I want in a saison called "Tropic King".
M - Perfectly carbonated, very creamy and light.
O - A wonderful "imperial" saison. Would have liked a bit more funk, I agree that this is almost more of a trippel. Either way, it's excellent.
Note: I've also had this in bottle. If I were to review this based on my experience with it bottled, it would be around a 3.5-4. It's far better on tap from the brewery.

Bomber bottle with brewed/bottled on dating. Purchased at the source.
Hazed and lovely lookin' under a frothy and rocky off white head that lasts nicely.
Fruity nose with ripe melon coming forward
Tasty, complex and thoroughly saison in character. Fruit, spice, yeast, crafty goodness.
Love the style and love this beer.
Please consider distribution to the NYC area

On tap at Breckenridge at the Ballpark in Denver. Pours deep orange colored with a small off white head. Aroma of tropical fruits as expected, some light funk, and a hint of spice. Flavor is on the sweeter side with lots of bubble gum notes and some tropical fruits, sweet wheaty malts, and very little zesty saison like barnyard yeast going on here. Medium plus bodied and medium carbonation. Overall I found this to be only OK, but not bad.
