4.33/5  rDev +19.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 750 ml bottle into a big Founders CBS glass.

Appearance: Pours a bright and clear copper golden orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. About three solid fingers of white head that quickly fade into a thin patchy layer. Leaves a decent amount of lacing around the glass.

Smell: A very sweet fruit dominated aroma with big hints of mango and some hints of habanero spice. Big upfront aroma of citrus fruit with lots of mango. Also some fruit hints of orange, peach, apricot, and lemon zest. Soft pale malt with hints of grains, cracker, and yeast. Background hints of spice from the habanero peppers. Hop presence is pretty faint. Surprisingly no booze scent is detected. A fairly simple but good aroma.

Taste: Like the aroma, a very fruit forward taste with a big dose of mango and some habanero spice heat. Very fruity upfront with a big taste of mango. Also some fruit notes of orange, apricot, peach, and lemon zest. The heat comes on stronger in the middle with a taste of the habanero peppers. Soft bready malt presence in the background with some notes of grain, cracker, and yeast. Slight honey like sweetness as well. Hop bitterness is pretty muted. Taste is sweet but far from cloying. Pretty good taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Crisp and very juicy and sweet but not overly syrupy. Big kick of heat is felt from the peppers but the booze is hidden very well.

Overall: A very good fruit beer. The mango is juicy and sweet but not overbearing. The heat adds an interesting kick. Surprisingly smooth and non boozy. Would pair great with a spicy Mexican dish.

Reviewed from memory from 4 days ago.

Poured a fairly clear golden copper with a foamy ivory head that dissipates somewhat quickly.

Tropical notes of mango and pineapple were contrasted by sweet and spicy peppery notes.

In flavor, the mango really came to life. It was a pleasant, juicy contrast to the fruity, spicy pepper flavor. The heat was still a bit too much. Malt was somewhat thin, and lacked sweetness to counter.

Got a bottle of this. Think I'll lay it down another couple years. Couldn't drink more than a few ounces, though.
