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 ya...it'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!

------------->Denny"

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

FREAKIN' FANTASTIC!!!!!!!!!!

niquejim:
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 ;)

niquejim:
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

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