Funkwerks - Tropic King [Imperial Saison Ale] (750 ml ---> Dogfish Head Curved Pint Glass : 8.0% ABV)

Having just tried my first home-brewed saison, I've been on a "saison kick" as of late, trying to develop a better palate for the style... Once I saw the imperial version of the Funkwerks saison I tried quite a while back, I was eager to pop the cap... Immediately upon pouring, an off white 4 inch head formed, composed of giant rocky bubbles, and slowly faded away leaving a small amount of lacing along the glass... The color is a deep golden yellow with a slight haze to it, and has a fair amount of carbonation assisting in the head's retention... In the aromas there's a decent amount of barnyard funk but it isn't overwhelmingly forward in its' presence, with an accompanying cast of lemons and yeast notes... First tasting brings forth a hoppy earthiness and slight spiciness also, fading into some subtle peach and citrus highlights, and of course some funk as well... The finish is smooth and crisp, with some more hoppy bitterness and spice to give it more depth... Mouthfeel is excellent for the style: full enough to act as a vessel for the complexity of the beer, but light enough to let the features act as their own highlights... Overall I was extremely pleased with this brew's representation of the style, as well as the great balance within the flavor profile!! Another great brew - Cheers!!
