2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours virtually see-through with light golden bubbles. The mango aroma hits straight away. Not much malt or hops taste. Bit of sugar. But mango overpowers. Would suit those who favour cider.

From 330 ml bottle at Dan Murphy’s Wagga. Not sure if it genius or not as it smells like mango and has an orange hue with a nice head but as I dislike mango a lot it doesn’t do it for me. If you are a mango fan this would be gold.

On tap at Archive, West End. Amber with minimal head. The mango taste is not as strong as I was expecting based on the aroma. Not bad for something different.

1.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Can’t believe I overlooked this gem of a beer for so long; courteously left over by guests on Christmas. Aroma is generic essence of mango and little else. Sweet and plump, but rather lacking a second dimension. It settles with an oddly pinkish hue to its translucent orange body. Head is the genius of science in that it shouldn’t survive but does. The carbonation like that of a can of Fanta™. It is rather inoffensive on the palate. I could easily mistake this for a RTD if it weren’t for the proclamations that it is in fact a Belgian Blonde underneath. It is CO2 heavy, gassy in the finish and just oozes gammy, almost goonish vinous fruit notes like a sickly sweet Asti Spumante dominated by artificial mango extracts. It becomes heavy as it warms so any less than chilled is hellish. Lasts a little too long too. I can’t stand mango and dread its annual crop coming into my kitchen. If the tourists are drinking this then they better up the ante to save us the hurt. Could not see this as beer at all!!! (33cL, BB 25/06/16, donated I believe!)

330ml bottle from Dan Murphy’s, Hurstville. Pale golden colour, thin white foam head and aroma of fruity artificial mango. Taste is grain, fruity mango flavouring, sweet with hay, cardboard. Thin mouthfeel, light bodied, medium carbonation, dry tangy finish. OK.

Bottle. Orange with a white head that lasts a while. After the lychee one smelled pretty mcuh like lychees I was surprised when this one smelled more like tinned fruit compote. Kind of a perfumed dough thing too. Sweet with vague tropical and stone fruit - like the syrup from a tin of mixed fruit. some grain, lightly spiced moderate bitterness. The mango aftertaste is a bit more convincing. Not really my sort of thing but OK.

Draught as part of a paddle at Yardarm Taphouse, Sydney, on October 12, 2015.
Oh! Very sweet and sugary, very fruity in an artificial way, yeah mango, but more of a cider in taste. Sweet, artificial sugar, artificial mango aftertaste. Medium light mouthfeel, very low to no bitterness. Clear pale golden color, white head. Very sweet, fruity cider like scent. If you like "fake" cider, then sure!

Bottle to glass. Saw this advertised all over the place, thought I might give it a go. Sweet aromas of mango (as you’d expect) but not much else. Looks decent enough- bold and rich. There was mango sweetness and depth all through this, but unlike the lychee beer, you could taste an light ale in there underneath. Quite refreshing, and crisper than I’d imagined. Not bad for something different perhaps.
