look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Draft: Poured a light yellowish weisse with a small foamy head with limited retention and lacing. Aroma of light tart notes with a lingering sweetness. Taste is dominated by light tart notes with some light sweet fruit notes. The mango is not easily discernable. Body is about average with medium carbonation. Interesting with light funky notes but definitely not my favourite solstice d’été.

Draft

Appearance – Hazy yellow colour with an average size frothy white coloured head. There is a below average amount of carbonation showing and there is some fairly good lacing. The head lasted for around 5 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Wheat/grains, lemons

Taste & Mouth - The beer has an average amount of carbonation. I can taste wheat mixed with lots of lemon juice, but it's not too overly sour. There is only a little bit of mango flavour, which was a little bit disappointing. It finishes with a tart lemon aftertaste.

Overall – I would like a little more mango flavour and a little more complexity. Other than the medium amount of sourness, the beer doesn't really have anything exciting going on. I've had the cherry version as well, and I preferred that one.
