Council Brewing Co. Beatitude Mango Tart Saison

What the brewers say

“Aging on mango and bottling with precision and care yield a beer with a Lacto-foward nose, an intensely tart mango flavor, a dough complexity from our no-boil process, and takes the word ’refreshing’ to a whole new level.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Up front—ripened mango flavors, with overripe apple and pear esters. Yeasty—smells like it isn’t done fermenting. Fruity esters and real fruit. No hops aroma.”

Flavor: “A combination of bright acidity and tart mango with noticeable Brett characteristics. The acidity lightens up the beer, but does drown out the mango. Some malt notes, but the Brett is doing its best to chew up what’s left.”

Overall: “Good saison. The acidity was a bit larger than I’d like, but the initial mango flavor was quite nice. A little age should clean up the sulfur/yeasty notes and bring out the Brett, as this tastes very young. A pleasant and bright beer with nice complexity and restrained mango that complements the base funky beer. Wild, wild mango that’s a bit over tart, and a bit mild on the phenols for a saison.”
