Enjoyed at Maduro in Madison WI.

Great take on an already great beer, tastes like a blend of oj, mango juice and great beer and if you finish a pint you will have some definitely heat build up.

On tap at Pies & Pints in Beaver reek, OH.

A fun beer to try. It has a cloudy orange color and good flavor. Overall it is a fairly smooth beer. Provides a building spicy heat finish along with a slight bitter wheat flavor. Awesome flavor and crafted well.

On tap at the Eccentric cafe several times.

This stuff is awesome and I strongly suggest you go and get some

Pours clouded, minor head, minimal lace

Nose of yeast, wheat and the expected sweet mangoes and a hint of the heat about to arrive in the back of your throat.

This brew is full bodied and Loaded with mango goodness up front, then a healthy dose of habanero heat in the finish.

awesome, delicious, well crafted, very very tasty......go get some

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.

On tap at the Tap and Mallet in Rochester, NY.

This one pours super turbidly, bright and orange, looks like mango juice. There's a small head, and a little bit of lacing.

Smells super strongly of mango juice, sweet and slightly tart, with some zesty and spicy smelling habanero, and a bit of wheat.

This is technically executed pretty well, there's a ton of mango, and a fairly blistering level of heat on the back end of this. It tastes good, but it's really hard to work through a pint of this. The flavor is really quite intense, and the heat builds and builds. The wheat provides a pretty significant grainy bitterness at the end, as well.

This is medium bodied, fairly thick, with a juicy mouthfeel, where the flavor lingers for a while after each sip.

An interesting beer, but a little bit overdone. Interesting to try for sure, though.

On tap at Tomato Bar which is a local pizza joint. Served in a pint glass.

Look- A super cloudy orange juice color with zero foam or carbonation.

Smell- Some mango and a bit of straw or grass.

Taste- A hint of mango, followed by pepper heat. Doesn't taste like anything remotely Oberon.

Feel- Flat, thin and hot. A residual pepper burn in the finish.

Overall- A mess of a beer that's flat and tastes hot. No balance, poorly done.

This beer is not as bad as I rated it, just a bit peculiar. It smells like mango puree as though I'm drinking a glass of juice and feels like mago puree. The Habanero comes in at the end and is not overpowering, which is actually a decent feacher. Worth a try, but I wouldn't push this one.
