See-through golden beer with a huge white head with big bubbles and lots of carbonation. Fruity smell, mostly hoppy. You get grapefruits, oranges and citrus in the nose with a subtle aroma a mangoes. You also have a grain and yeast smell. Definitely less hoppy in the mouth, you taste more the mangoes than you smell them, nice wheat presence in the mouth. Overall it's a nice fruity saison but from a collaboration between Beau's and Trou du Diable I expected something better.

On tap at Bar Volo. Dirty blond appearance, virtually no head. A little funky peppery spicy nose. Smooth mouthfeel, well carbonated. A sipper, and tasty, with white pepper,a little salt, cardomon, a bit of ginger and other nondescript spices. Some chocolate malts. A tad of smoke and of booziness in the finish. Good drinkability

Appearance - Poured into a 12 oz beaus tulip glass This beer pours a slightly hazy gold with 3 fingers head that dissipated in a few minutes leaving a thick film common of beaus beers.

Aroma - mango, cut grass, earthy hops, some floral hops, spices. wheat.

Taste - Mango, eathy bitterness, wheat, floral flavors, peppery spice.

Feel - light almost watery with prickly carbonation, nice and refreshing for a summer day.

Overall - this is a fairly decent beer overall, If it was warm out I could see myself on the balcony with a pint of this and a good book. it starts sweet and earthy and finishes dry not a bad beer at all,

Cloudy orange with a white head that is a bit fizzy and short lived for a saison. Leaves modest lacing on the glass.

Mango and orange in the nose, over a bit of earthy background. Fruit flavors of mango and orange dominate the flavor with a bit of black pepper. Crisp dry finish.

Mouthfeel and carbonation are a little light. Nice use of mango. Not spot on for a saison, but a very drinkable refreshing beer.

Bottle: Poured a light yellow color ale with a medium size foamy head with OK retention. Aroma of tart notes with light mango notes is pleasant. Taste is a nice mix of light mango notes with some tart and sour notes. Body is light with good carbonation. The mango notes could be even more straightforward but nevertheless this is a nice refreshing take on the style.
