Wonderfully dry and refreshingly tart

This gets really good at 6+ months in the bottle

Here's what Denny had to say about it

"Hi Jim,
Sorry to take so long getting back to's been weird here...

Let me just say...FREAKIN' FANTASTIC!!!!!!!!!!  A totally delicious beer, perfectly balanced. Sour up front, but the the mango kicks in mid palate. A throughly enjoyable experience.

Thanks so much for thinking of me when you sent them up. The mango strong was a real inspiration for me to try something crazy one of these days. When I do, you'll be sure you get some!


Let me just repeat in case it wasn't clear....


The latest version has been in the bottle since the end of May....All I can say is Merry Christmas. It's better than at 3 months and nearly as good as last time at 6 months

I need to plan this one so that it is ready for summer. While it's not a lawnmower beer, it drinks like one and can sneak up on you in a hurry ;)

Well, this beer was not specialty enough for the Sam Adams contest((and I listed the wrong base recipe >:( ) I was concerned about that), but they said that everyone who tried it, liked it

When you say "dregs from 3 bottles Orval" are you referring to the yeast cake in the bottle?
