Pours a light orange color with a decent white head.

Malty and fruity are the main smells here, maybe a hint of yeast.

Tastes a lot like it smells, lot of fruit up front. There is citrus, and something a little different that I am assuming in the mango. There is a hint of spice, and a small amount of bitterness at the finish.

Pretty smooth and creamy going down, feels a bit more solid than expected.

A somewhat unusual beer, how much you like it depends on how well you like fruit flavors in your beer. I found it very drinkable and refreshing, would be nice on a hot day.

On tap at the brewery. Color is light orange. Smell is unidentified fruit. Oddly, it smells a lot like a chile beer with that green spicy note. Taste is light fruit, quickly switching to buttered popcorn. Never had that taste element before. Feel is typical thin from a blonde. Overall not great. One and done for sure
