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.

Really sweet. does not taste like beer what so ever. I was worried the Pepper would be too much, but Founders has done a wonderful job keeping the pepper in the background just enough. My wife thought it was wonderful.

Poured from a bomber into a tulip

L: Pours a light to medium golden orange color... clear, and with 2 fingers of white head that fall rapidly. No lacing.

S: Tropical fruits and mango.

T/F: Sweet up front with loads of sticky mango... almost tastes like a mango candy. No other flavors apparent... no hop presence, and a medium heat at the finish from the peppers. Carbonated... syrupy and sticky. Warming from the somewhat needlessy high ABV.

O: I guess it is what it says it is... syrupy sweet mango candy with hot peppers at the finish. Not a favorite, and not one I'm likely to revisit but was worth a sampling. If you love mango or pepper beers you'll undoubtedly enjoy this one. Definitely one to share... it took me quite awhile to get through a bomber.

Artificial fruit scents, reminiscent of children's chewable vitamins, cloyingly sweet flavor interrupted by heat from the peppers. Not a fan of this at all. I've had and liked beers with peppers in them, but this is not one of them.
