3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Intensely fruity, sweet, definitely a nice mango punch, but it kinda tastes more like a wine cooler than a real sour beer. I’d be interested to see how it ages, and it’s not awful, but a weird beer that I wasn’t in love with.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at Daily Growler Powell. Hazy gold-apricot color with a medium white head that dissipates steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of yeast, apples and malt. Full-bodied with flavors of funky apples and melons, earthy yeast and malt. The finish is fruity with a tart apple and mango aftertaste. Decent overall.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Lightly hazy golden-orange body, medium to thin white head, spotty lacing. Mango, semi-sweet grainy cereals, honey, some citrus, and wheat. Medium bodied, soft, smooth carbonation, some booze, lingering, slightly muddled finish. A bit too big and sweet... I think this would have been more successful if dialed back a few notches.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Mango was very light. Decent enough. Would have again. Came in full glass which needed more head. It dissipated too quickly.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured light orange with a thick creamy white head. Slight wheat aroma but primarily sweet mango and other tropical fruits. Overly sweet. Not for me but maybe if you like fruit beers.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Hazy orange/gold with a foamy 1 finger white head. Lots of floaties. Aroma is wheat, earthy funk, cereal and tart mango. Taste follows but is heavy on the tart and mango notes. Almost tastes like a boozy mango flavored Berliner Weiss. Light bubblegum on the finish. Thin body, strong carb and quick finish. Ambitious but perhaps a bit over the top.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a bright golden color with a huge foamy orange-white head that lingered forever and left decent lacing. The aroma was sweet sugar, tangy mango, peach and tropical fruits. The flavor was very tart and sour with mango and peach that exploded on the tongue with sour tropical fruits and sugar. Long finish. Moderately full bodied. Interesting.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a pale yellow with lasting ring and some floaties. Aroma is wheat, Belgian funk, a little fruit. Taste is TART! Wow, this is trippy... my first sour/wild ale. There is a bit of a yeasty sweetness fighting for relevance in the beginning, but it’s quickly drowned out by the wave of tartness. This was good for up to 5 years in the bottle, but only aged 3 months. Maybe this would mellow with age, but for now it’s got a Sweet Tarts finish. Definitely a sipper, and 10% ABV isn’t apparent... but the finish is just too much.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours mostly clear gold with thin, fizzy head. Aroma is cereal malts, straw, light tropical fruit notes, faint spicy notes, and faint orange peel.
