Gold in color with a light haziness. There’s a a quarter inch of off white on top. The aroma is of mango and faint pineapple. I’m tasting mango and pineapple in a bad candle sort of flavor. The mouth is moderately carbonated and over fruited.

Appearance - Pours slightly hazy golden color with a nice white head excellent retention. Tons of lacing.

Aroma - Yep getting that spicy Belgian yeast right up from, I can almost say i smell the mango but no pineapple. I can tell there is some fruit there from a hint of sweetness that cuts the spice.

Taste - The taste is much different, more sweet tropical fruit I get the mango for sure on the finish. The spiciness is covered up mostly by the pineapple and mango. Lots of pineapple in the taste.

Feel - Medium bodied nice carbonation pretty clean finish.

Overall - Impressed with the taste, the nose is almost a standard Belgian ale but the taste is much more tropical. Without knowing I would not say this was a Saison from the taste.

Pours a hazy light amber color with a minimal white head that disappears quickly. Aroma of fruit. Taste is sweet, banana comes through. Good mouth feel.

Little foam, light golden color. Fruity mango nose. Taste is light, crisp and citrusy with forward mango and pineapple. Good aftertaste.

Little bitter for Sarah. One of her lesser favorites from Brewery Vivant.

Slight haze to this boldly golden bodied beer, with the kind of head that impresses with it's fluffy whiteness for mere seconds before a disappearance act. Nose carries more biscuit than anything else until something similar to an AAL? Finally, a little pear in the finish. Taste ropes in a bit with a strong, fruity presence, but like a sophisticated fruitiness. Certainly mango, but it's a less sweet, more rich kind of mango, as if eating the actual fruit and not a contrived candy version. Lots of depth to this as well, like seriously sinking your teeth into a big, fleshy hunk of not 100% ripe just yet mango. Not getting much pineapple though. After taste is nearly non-existent, save for a little rind taste on the tongue. It's a good beer, but I kind of think that it requires more contemplation than what I was expecting.

Pours light hazy, light gold. Foamy, short, white head that is short lived with light lace.

Smells tropical, mango, light pineapple, light yeast funk and doughy.

Tastes bready malt, light sweet fruit, hints of pineapple, light tropical. Followed by light yeast Funk, hints of floral and spice. Finish is dry with a citrus peel and yeast hint linger. Medium body and creamy medium carbonation.

1 Pint can
Served in a Michigan Wolverines oversized stemless wine glass

This beer pours about like pineapple juice. There is a lot of sediment floating in my glass. It is topped with an inch of off white head that doesn't stick around long and leaves virtually no lacing.

The aroma is spicy Belgian yeast along with pineapple and mango.

The taste is pretty much the same as the smell. It has spicy Belgian yeast flavors complimented by the mango and pineapple juice.

Medium mouthfeel

This is a pretty refreshing beverage. I really like the addition of the pineapple and mango juice to a solid saison base. It is quite refreshing.

My first beer from brewery vivant and hopefully not my last.
The appearance is probably my favorite part of the beer. Nice hazy golden orange color with a quickly dissipating white head that left some lacing.
The aroma is nice with zesty yeast spiciness up front along with mango. Not much pineapple.
The taste is pretty similar with zesty spice and mango. Maybe some pineapple as well.
The mouthfeel is medium-light with a nice lingering palate as well. A bit of bitterness coming through as well.
Overall a decent saison but could be a little more fruit foreward.

Poured golden with a one-finger head which quickly dissipated. Slight funk smell then cinnamon and pineapple. Taste tropical, slightly (pleasantly) sweet. I don't really notice the hops. Light, refreshing.
