3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
From bottle, accidentially aged in basement nearly 1 3/4 years. Smells very sweet mango and citrus. Appears golden orange, almost like a cask gin, very tiny bits of homogeneous sediment, maybe yeast,
almost looks like tiny bubbles, but not. Nice citrus sweet up front that fades away as a gentle capsacin burn grows and lingers, very nice. Very light palate, nice on a hot day. Overall, really good, nice to actually taste/feel capsaicin in a pepper beer.

Bottle. Appearance is orange with white head. Aroma is mango jam and light spice. Taste is sweet mango jam, followed by some odd vegetal flavours, finishes with heat. Interesting beer, I wasn’t a huge fan of this, but it was fun to try.

Pours bright orange. Mango sweetness persistent throughout. Great balance. The habanero comes through at the end and in force. Great beer! Wish I had more.

Pours orange-amber with a medium off white head. Aroma - you can smell the habaneros almost exclusively. Taste is sweet & fruity with a habanero-esque bite at the finish. The heat lingers.

Strong dominant mango flavor. The habaneros are not too overbearing. Definitely some heat but also some of the fruity flavor of the chile in there.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Clear light golden pour, slight white head. Beautiful mango nose. Sweet quickly is replaced by warm heat in the back of the mouth. Awesome - a perfect blending of sweet, mango fruit and heat. Might be less heat form sitting around for a few extra months.

Transfer from BA review on 5-9-14-
Poured from bottle into a snifter
Appearance – The beer pours clear golden color with a dense head of white foam. The head has a good level of retention, slowly fading over time to leave a wonderful level of streaky lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – A mass of sweet mango greets the nose with some other fruity smells of peach and apricot, as well as a little bit of a pear there as well. Along with these fruity smells are some lighter aromas of a doughy as well as a slightly spicy black pepper and yeasty smell.
Taste – As one may expect from the name the taste begins with a rather potent and sweet mango flavor. With the mango are some bready flavors mixed within. Other fruits soon come to the tongue to join the mango. These fruit flavors of peach, banana, and apricot pale in intensity, but add a nice dimension to the sweetness. Some habanero pepper and a little bit of a grassy taste develop more toward the middle, taming some of the sweetness a tad. While the habanero starts out a bit lighter it really grows in intensity and after the beer is long gone from the tongue, a nice spicy burn mixed with a sweeter mango flavor is left to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is the thicker and more syrupy side with a carbonation level that is on the average side. While a slightly higher carbonation may have been a bit better for the big mango and fruit flavors of the brew, the syrupy body is really quite appropriate of the flavors matching well the feel of thick fruit nectar, giving the brew an overall rather appropriate tongue coating are really upping the intensity of the habanero at the end.
Overall – I actually really thought this was a neat combination for a brew. The sweet and spicy hot really played off each other quite well. I could see this brew matching a nice piece of roasted chicken quite nicely. A rather tasty one to try.
