"A refreshing golden ale infused with fresh mint and mango. Green mint and fruity aromas pour off of this light bodied ale, opening up the senses with a tingling cool freshness." ~SBC
Poured into a Duvel tulip.
A - Pours a playful hazy tangerine color with some promising head and varying bubbles. Not much retention or lacing to speak of.
S - Fresh mint is strong in the nose, crisp and inviting. Smells pretty sweet, too, although I can't pick up on any mango.
T - The mango certainly isn't lost in translation, but the mint seems to want total control. Not necessarily a bad thing, just an observation. The mint seems to contribute an almost prickly sort of bittersweet near the finish.
M - It's a very interesting mouthfeel. Cooling, almost like chewing on a sprig of mint, and very light in body. However, it seems to be a little overwhelming.
O - This managed to pair incredibly well with a spinach salad, and I suspect it wouldn't be too bad as a dessert beer. I'd recommend pairing with food rather than drinking it by its lonesome. Good brew.
