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.

Fizzy, clear, effervescent pour. Subdued champagne qualities.
Musty aroma, amateur. Not sure I’m gonna like this. But mind is open. Founders is a great brewery, right? I love habanero! but no aroma whatsoever...
Sweet, right off. Too sweet. Gaggingly sweet. No mango. No habanero. Just sweet. Wheatwine? Whatever the hell that is supposed to be? The Bruery uses it too, but it isn’t this sweet. Huge-assed bottle, imagine I’ll be drain-pouring some of it at some point. Disappointed. Was excited when the guy pulled it out for me (it doesn’t sell here in California and I was excited to try it) but very disappointed now and wondering if I ought bring the half-drunk bottle back to him….
overall... pathetic. 10%. whatever. so is fourloco.... I think. not happy with this one.

This was the best beer I have ever had (that was not a Stout). The Mango brought a slight sweetness while the Habanero Peppers had a great punch and offered a very spicy ending to the beer. I would love for Founders to brew this one again, or make it a yearly special.
