Pours a murky orange with a foamy beige head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Tiny dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is sour with malt, grain, acidic, wine, wood, slight mango, and slight nail polish remover aromas. Taste is much the same with wine, wood, and slight mango flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and dry mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a mango presence that is fairly subdued all around.

4.05/5  rDev +3.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

Look: Pours with average size off-white bulky head. Fast retention, mostly diminishing within minutes. Leaves moderate lacing. Rich amber colour, mostly clear, slightly hazy. Carbonation visible.

Smell: Fruity, tropical fruits to be exact (pineapple mostly, some melon and mango). Then comes the sour part and big leathery brett funk. Also some white wine in there, maybe a bit of sulphur notes. Spicy. The smell is rich and fresh enough, a good mix for a wild ale.

Taste: Sour and cane like sweetness, fruitiness. Then comes the moderate sweet caramelish middle malt part and then the brett leather funk takes over. Some hints of white wine just before it goes down the throat. Maybe some tart too. Aftertaste filled with light bitterness - pleasant. Missing some of the fruitiness from the smell.

Mouthfeel: Medium dry body. Surprisingly crisp carbonation, adds that fresh character. Drinkable.

Overall: Solid wild ale, some notes from white wine and a little less from mango, interesting mix, worth a try. Brett and sour aren't overwhelming, but do fill most of the aroma.

Did someone just "Shanghi" Raul and take him to Hawaii? This done thing is crazy and Raul is loving every hot dog second of it. Mangos on mangos and just goodness on goodness. Like a good girl, Raul wants to take it to dinner and a movie; and like a bad girl, Raul wants to spank it.

Raul likes it good.
