3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Shared with PaleAleRider at Pub Italia in Ottawa, ON. Written on front label, packaged MAY 23, No. 1295. Pours a hazy golden-amber colour with a white foamy head, average retention and minimal lacing. Also noticed mild mango pulp after the last pour. Fruity aromas (mango, passion fruit) with some sweet grain malt and peppery yeast. Notes of honey does come out as it warms up. Medium-bodied and wet with a little stickiness and a dry finish. The fruit is much milder in the taste. More Belgian yeast, light hop bitterness, cereal malts with hints of mint. Seems like a nice blend between a witbier and a fruit beer. Quite interesting collaboration with Le Trou du Diable brewery.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
600ml bottle thanks to Olivier.
Appearance : Slightly hazy pale yellow with huge foamy head.
Aroma : Nice hay and herbal hops with light malts. Light saison yeast with light rustic notes. Light mangos as well. Quite appealing nose.
Taste : Light malt with light mangos. Herbal hops with some hay. Very light yeast character. Finish quite dry with light bitterness, light herbal hops and light fruity notes. Fairly thin overall.
Overall : Interesting, very refreshing and very dry but a bit shy on the flavor. It seems the mango fermented out almost entirely. A bit too dry and too thin for me. The Saison yeast is also a bit shy which is sad. Still quite interesting.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at Volo.
Hazy golden pour, big white head.
Rght off the bat, there is a big mango aroma, mixed with some grassy hops, and a light pepperiness.
The carb is bang on, and the body is perfect.
The finish is of a medium bitterness with more solid mango, and some pleasant tartness. The pepperiness fades but is still there, its a little thin in the end but still super drinkable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from the brewery. Quite hazy yellow-gold with some small floaties and a large head of tight white bubbles. Aroma is quite peppery and yeasty with complementary notes of wheat, orange peel and mango. Remarkably effervescent body that stays crisp and lively until the end of the glass. Flavour follows on the aroma pretty closely - spicy yeast dominates, with mango and citrus supporting, and a nice peppery finish. Not quite as out there as I expected a collab of these two breweries to be, but still pretty nice stuff.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample poured from 600ml bottle. Gold, bubbly appearance. Aroma is light tropical fruit. Taste is rather sweet, with some yeast and tropical fruit. Body was light and refreshing. Overall, rather candy sweet and I'm not sure what mango tastes like but it was unique and enjoyable.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at Trou du Diable. Clear pale yellow pour with tons of frothy white foam. Mangos reasonably present in the aroma, light citrusy wheaty notes as well. Taste is light and fruity, fresh grainy flavors, bread dough, malt. Palate is very light and refreshing, with smooth carbonation and a dry finish. Beautiful little beer that I wish was more available.
