A - Pours a clear amber with a two-finger foamy white head. Good amount of lacing.

S - Not much in the smell. Some faint mango and sweet malt.

T - Sweet syrupy mango hits you right off the bat. What follows is mostly just heat from the habeneros. Long burn in the finish.

M - Medium body with medium carbonation. Syrupy sticky mouthfeel.

O - This is not the easiest beer to drink. The heat overpowers in the finish. Glad I tried it, but would not have again.

I picked this up at Brass Rail, poured chilled in a goblet from the 22oz brown bottle.

The color is much like mango nectar with golden and amber hues with white cream cap which holds well. The smell is a nice blend of mango fruitiness with a slight pepper odor in the background, mild earthy contrasts with the sweet fruit notes. The feel is great, smooth and sweet up front with mild tangy feel then as the liquid is swallowed a mild heat surfaces letting you know chile was used to augment, very nice balance of sweet and heat.

The taste is great, lots of mango which is enjoyable especially since it is labeled as a Mango beer foremost. I like how the pepper does a good job of being noticeable but not overwhelming in the flavor. I wish I would have gotten more when it was available - this is a very drinkable blend of fruit and habanero!

750mL bottle from imfrommichigan (thanks so much for letting me try this!). I can't find the bottling date but this is about 6 months old. Served in a Founders snifter.

Pours a hazy but translucent orange yellow with a finger and a half of fluffy white head. A decent halo persists, leaving clumps of lace.

Smell is fairly faint. Mango is there followed by sweet malt, a yeast character that I typically associate with BSPA and then some pepper.

Mango is definately the star of the show in the flavor department. Plenty of mango pulp followed by a bite of habenero pepper, simple syrup, bready malt, faint apple-like yeast and a nip of booze. Quite smooth for it's double digit abv. No surprises, having read the label.

Syrupy medium heavy feel with moderate carbonation. Mango and mild habenero linger in the finish.

This is a mango infused fruit beer through and through and the pepper bite adds an interesting element. I'm happy to have tried this but glad I didn't go crazy hunting it. A solid effort that delivers exactly what it seems to have set out for.
