COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
English: Peter Prescott was born the youngest of 7 boys, son of a fruit picker in an orchard not far from Asheville in 19th century North Carolina. Not only was he last in line when the one daily meal was served, he was also small and weak. Peter soon realized that in order to survive he had to find his calories elsewhere. Fallen mandarins and mangos from the thousands of orchard trees became his salvation – quite literally. Peter calculated that most days 95% of his nutrition came from those fruits. And luckily Peter liked fruits. However, in his puberty things started to change for Peter. While his peers developed acne, Peter also had excrescences growing on his skin. Those were not pimples though, but small branches that would set ripe fruit during the night. Most annoying were the ones that grew out of his ears. Medicinal experts found Peter’s case very interesting, but lost interest as soon as they realized that no money would cover their interest. So Peter continued to wake up with branches sticking out from his body, and every now and then the pattern would be broken with an additional mango taking two days to be ripened out of his belly button. Peter was not a good orchard worker, weak as he was and fighting his daily abnormities. So when P.T. Barnums travelling circus passed through Asheville in 1860, Peter’s dad said a quick goodbye and sold him to Barnum’s side show for as little as 50 dollars. Peter however didn’t really mind and became famous as the Mandarina Man in many US states. Some claim he was even more famous than fellow English freak The Elephant Man. Later Peter married his long time love ‘The bearded lady” but the couple never had any children. Which might also have proven complicated.

Skinnyviking (9823) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 20, 2018
Sampled at DØE København Nord. Fluffy high lasting white head. Hazy milky yellow body. Mild dusty fruity aroma. Nicely hopped fruity and somewhat acidic flavor with a low carbonation and a long finish. Alcohol level seems just right.

UPDATED: FEB 9, 2018 L'aroma és molt discret tot i la gran quantitat de llúpol que se li nota. Es amarga, lleugerament àcida i té una astringència important.

visionthing (5667) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 8, 2018
50cl bottle from Amager Bryghus, Copenhagen. Pours muddy golden to orange with a white head. Fruity aroma with plenty of citrus, some herbal notes and hints of malt. Moderate to medium sweet with juicy citrus flavours, light acidity and a pleasant bitterness. Almost more juicy than beer,but certainly refreshing and enjoyable.

2.2
larsga (7690) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 2, 2018
Small offwhite head quickly shrinks. Yellow body with lots of floaties. Strong resiny orangey aroma with tropical fruit and toffee notes. Dry, slightly acidic, spicy orangey taste with overripe fruit notes. Mid-bodied. Some grains in mouthfeel. Dry-acidic resiny orangey aftertaste really revolts me, but I have difficulty saying why. Something about the acid and orange combination is just really off. Drainpour. (0.5l bottle, from Kihoskh, Copenhagen. Best before: July 2018. Batch #1650.)

Tap at Dutch Trading - unconvincing straw colour - although the long and somewhat dull description above doesn’t mention Mandarina hops, I presume this is a Mandarina IPA (and I love Mandarina hops) alas, like the description, I find it somewhat dull... pleasant enough but dull.
