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.

3.8 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.

Pint @ Atomic Rooster
Cloudy orange-amber, no head. Nice, clean, lightly fruity, some biscuit malt, a hint of pepper. Only a slightly hint of Beau’s roughness. Pleasant mango fruitiness with a definite peppery note and nice bitterness, still clean, quite tasty. Dry and refreshing.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at "La Soirée des Brasseur" beer fest in Shawinigan on August 12, 2012. Blonde straw, small head. Light aroma of mango and sweet herbs. Mango taste very light, much more herbs and wheat, fruity aftertaste. It’s very mild!

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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a cloudy light straw with a small white mist that quickly disappears. Aroma is a light peppery with straw. Mild fruit coming through as well. Taste is again small pepper and grain. I’m having a hard time picking up the mango but I do pick up some light tropical fruit, like a tropical fruit drink but very subtle. Nice saison.
