Big thanks to MarkyMOD for sending this as an extra!
Poured into tulip glass. Pours a hazy orange/yellow with generous amount of foamy head which leaves a bit of lacing. Decent retention as well. The nose begins with some fruity esters paired with clove and other spicy notes. Notes of orange, apricot, zest, and a touch of banana all present as well. The taste starts with some spicy notes of Belgian yeast followed by increasingly fruity notes. The finish is dry which moderates the fruit a bit. Mouthfeel is medium with spritzy carbonation. Overall, a bit sweet and fruity for a saison but refreshing at the same time.

Pours a dark yellowish golden with an orange hue and a nice white head. Smells and tastes like you would expect a Tropic King with apricot to smell and taste like. Spicey, a little fruity, and sweetened by the apricots and its sugars, which do cut the hops a bit. A crisp, active mouthfeel. Overall, a really enjoyable variation of a great beer.
