It was good but was almost not spicy enough and tasted more like mango juice than beer. Nevertheless it's a good beer to start the summer.

This beer drinks like a big, spicy, sweet Belgian dark ale. Strong, sweet, round fruity flavor all playing in front of a backdrop of spicy heat (instead of hop bitterness). The sweetness is almost too much, it's almost unbalanced; this isn't really a go-to everyday buy a case of it for a ball game kind of beer. It's a sipper that ought to be paired with the right food; perhaps a fresh salad to help cut through some of the sweetness. Very easily worth a try.

Pours a very hazy, dark orange with a thin, white head.
Smells all mango.
A nice mango taste that switches straight to heat on the first taste. As you drink, there is a smoother transition. The heat is pretty substantial that really hits in the throat. No alcohol taste which makes this dangerous at 10%. Very unique. A neat share bottle that was worth the $6 I paid for clearance bomber.

All I can say about this beer is that it does not taste anything like a beer. Oh sure it looks the part but it is way too sweet and the heat from the peppers does nothing to balance the sweetness. There is no hop, barley or malt presence at all. I would not buy again.
