2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
The mango version in this obscure range, which is apparently made for New African Allied Breweries. Snow white, sticky head, pinkish peach blonde colour, misty. Very strong artificial mango odour, lemonade, industrial apple juice, grainy, also something sweaty and a subtle, yet weird whiff of smokiness. Taste artificially mango-like, like a soda with fruit extracts, sugary, light lemony sourishness which tries to balance the sweetness a bit, but does not succeed. I have no idea what Huyghe is always trying to achieve coming up with concoctions like this, have they not learned anything from Floris Chocolat and the like?

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
330ml bottle. Minimally cloudy pinkish golden colour with small, frothy, collapsing, white head. Fruity mango aroma. Taste is very sweet fruity, mango juice. Not really bad in taste, but artificial through and through.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottle. Dark-hued golden body, small creamy white head. Aroma is sweet sugary artificial-like mango and peach tones, reminiscent of my early teen yearsí fruit wine "favorite" Peach Canei. Appearance: 3
Taste is sweet mango-ish peach tones. Almost sickly. Could not finish this one. Holy Moly. Sweet as a fruit wine. Not what the doctor ordered.

2.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Ratings #711, bottle from Pi Pa Po in Berlin
Well, I actually bought the series of these three (includes banana and palm lager as well) because I wanted Ghanese ratings. Itís apparently from Belgium, but whatever, Iím always into trying some beers I never had before. It a very light orange almost white beer, with practically no head. Aroma is horrible with cheap malts, synthetic candy and disgusting fruit-taste booze. Taste is much better fortunately allthough it is sugary sweet. Peach is most obvious (it doesnít really taste like mango) and so it ammonium chloride and a light bitterness. Ammonium actually gives a nice perspective to this sweet beer. Medium palate, and the sweetness makes it seem thicker. Drinkable when you have come past the aroma.

0.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 1/20
Bottle, mine labelled at 4.0%. Nose is sugary-sweet and frothing mango puree. Sickly pale hazy orange with a white head. Taste is cloying, mango specifically but with the sweetness itís hard to get much beyond ífruití. Slightly medicinal medium body. Not offensive, just needs be considered a base for a long drink rather than a beer.
