3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light amber, large white head; smells of mangoes, strangely enough; the mango isn’t overpowering and there is none of the tartness that has marred my limited exposure to fruit beers thus far; this has a gentle sweetnees and is light, clean and refreshing; an unexpected pleasure

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
330ml bottle bought at Belgian Beer International in Tsuen Wan.
Cloudy, hazy peach amber colour with thickish dirt-like yeast sediments; One quarter finger head and white foam which fades in 20 seconds; Very good sticky lacing with notable carbonation; Aroma of raw mango, dried mango strips, light papaya and strong sugar; Mid-to-strong sweet taste of malt, with mango pulp, strong wheat tartness, yoghurt, sugar, yeast and notable light strawy grass; Mid to light body, thin but slick palate; Mouth feel is strong sweet and mango pulps being balanced by equally tart yoghurt, a cross between a thinned mango lassi and a mango lambic. Pretty thick palate despite strong wheat presence. Pretty heavy stuff… Hoppiness is sharp strawy light grass taste. No bitterness, just strong sweet and tart finish; Slighty dry after taste, quite easy and rich to mouth.
Comments: This is perhaps the strongest Floris fruit beer in terms of aroma, maltyness, tartness, fruits and sweetness. The aroma is tropical rawness yet the taste is ripe and rich, quite unbalanced. A case of strong for strong sake, and if they can tune it down a bit, this can be very good. Drinkable for those who crave raw intensity.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
¿Hay que probarlas todas no? Pues eso. Nada especial, me resulta un poco edulcorada y artificial. Refrescante.

2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Visual: Sealed with a glued-on foil and cap. Pours translucent hazy golden orange with almost no head , very thin retention, some slow steady streams.
Nose: sour-tangy wheaty candied mango juice. Seems artificial but aromatic nonetheless. (9)-aromatic strength.
Attack: cloying-super (10)-sweetness
Mid-palate: tangy-sourness, (MAIN) mango candy (HINT) wheat, barley malt
Finish: fruity real-mango exhale, partially (5)-cloying sweet sugary finish.
Summary: This drinks like a COOLER, not really like a fruit beer or lambic. The sweetness is way too aggressive from the start and persists until some of the fruit flavour shines through but only momentarily at the finish. Casual beer drinkers may like it. (Note: all numbers above are on a 10-point scale, with 1 being weak and 10 being the strongest)

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Enjoyed on 10/18/2011
Poured from a bottle at Delerium Cafe in Brussels. Extremely light gold with half a finger of head. Insanely fruity, sugary sweet on the nose. Mango like crazy in smell, maybe a touch of orange.
Very bubbly and sweet. Mangos dominate, obviously, and a decent tartness somewhat offsets the sugar. Still WAY too sweet for my tastes.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
330ml bottle (Belgian Cafe, Margate)
Absurd sweet aroma. Sweet palate, sticky. A little less sweet than the aroma implies, but that’s still dominated by sugar and mango. Silly. Sure, it’s drinkable, but it’s just not a beer.
