This is basically the Maori/Tropic King recipe, but they forgot the hops on those. So, this is what the "King" was supposed to be, so I'm told.

More of an orange shade than golden. A bit of haze. Head is a mix of soapy bubbles and more of creamy style bubbles.

Spicy aroma. The addition of the New Zealand hops (forgot which, and I can't read my writing) gives this saison a bit of a grapefruit rind aroma.

It's clear that the hop addition was a good idea, if at least for a chance to make a different beer. Grapefruit and pommelo juiciness. Coriander and some band aid. Clove. Green banana or plantain. Refreshing beer, and the hops are highlighted. I'm getting to like this "southern" hops.
