This beer's very similar to the regular Mamba, with heightened flavors, and aromas, of tangerine-based fruit puree and a mildly-noticeable undercurrent of alcohol, which, considering the abv, seems very well masked. The black tea is in there somewhere, but seems obscured.

The appearance deviates little from the standard version -- a cloudy, peachy orange with little lacing. Pretty much what I expected, which maybe why I'm left unimpressed.

Ultimately, I prefer this over the year-round iteration, but it's really a niche beer. If you like hops, at all, you're not going to find any here. It's sweet, fruity, and slightly boozy, but oh-so delicious.
