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.

On tap at CBC 2016. Bright golden with no head. Tons of mango on top of a hot spicy feeling - a wacky and delicious beer.

This looks like orange juice, or mango nectar in a glass. Very bright orange in color, and relatively thick looking. Not much carbonation or head. Smell is similar to the normal oberon, with the addition of mango in this one.

It's flavor does have a bit of heat. Not too much, but its noticeable. Strong enough to take note, but mild enough for even a non heat lover to enjoy one. I personally, would have liked to see it kicked up a notch.

There is some mango and orange in the flavor, but I found it to be relatively boring otherwise. It could use more carbonation, and considering the addition of s and habaneros, I was expecting more flavor than what it has. All in all, its a decent beer, but somewhat of a letdown compared to what I was hoping it would be.
