Pours a pinkish orange hue with a one finger head that dissipates quickly but leaves some lacing down the glass.
Smells like a freshly cut mango. So fresh. Juicy and has a hint of spice. Very nice.
When you first sip it a huge splash of fresh mango juice. So fresh. Sweet at first with a hint of some wheat. After you swallow the spice really takes over. But it's not too much. It's just enough to give the mango a kick.
Mouthfeel is perfectly carbonated and light. But also has a creamy fill from the foam that forms when you swish it in your mouth.
Overall this is a very nice and interesting beer. Definitely something to be shared because I feel the spice would really begin to bother your stomach, but it's absolutely worth the try.
Serving type: on-tap

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.
