What an amazing beer. Consumed on tap in a pint glass
L: Amazing opaque orange mango color with no head at all.
S: Soft aroma of mango with a touch of heat.
T: Follows the nose, with a nice mango presence w/out being overly or unnecessarily sweet tasting. At the back, the heat builds nicely from the habanero spice, along w/ a subtle kick of peppery flavor.
F: Moderate level of carbonation.

Overall a really good beer that stands out nicely in a crowd in both look and experience. Would seek this out again.
(also, goes great with the right food and a good sunset)

Basically juice with too much mango sweetness, not enough habanero heat. Also looks like juice and not beer.

This pour literally looks like a glass of orange juice, blame the mangos. Immensely viscous, minimal lacing, mango dominates the flavor and residual heat on the finish. Just wish the base beer had a bit more body for support

Taste: Mango fruit sweet at first but then heat of Habanero stays with you, but does not burn. Wheat in background. Fresh fruit nose. Bright Mango orange color, total opaqueness, small head. Medium body. Visually unique.

Really well done. I usually can't stand heat in beer, preferring it in my food, but Bell's has struck a great balance here.
Served in tap. Very interesting look, almost like carbonated carrot juice topped by the loosest, large bubbled head I've seen. Weird but mouthwatering. Big juicy aromas, Oberon shot through with mango. Slick feel as it rolls over the tongue sweet-and-spicy, bringing heat to the mouth and washing it away in the same swallow. Would gladly have this one again.
