3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a finger of head on a clear straw colored body.
The aroma is mango and strawberry. Nice.
The taste starts as a contrast to the smell: watery wheat with some mild bitterness, mild sweet takes over in the middle to end. Finishes with a strawberry sweetness.
The texture is fizzy with a lighter body and moderate carbonation.
The smell and taste counter each other and are difficult to reconcile. Still, it tastes good, though on the sweeter (fruit) side.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22oz bottle picked up at The Grapevine
Pours cloudy dark golden with a medium sized white head, some lacing. Aroma is fruity, plastic and wheat. Taste is tropical fruit, herbal and light grains
OK, but I can’t pick out the Mango. It all just blends together and nothing stands out. I was looking forward to a strong Mango flavor/aroma.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 ozz. bottle. Pours a medium, poorly retained, ivory heaad, over a slightly hazy orange amber (SRM 12) body....nose is mango with moderate brown sugar over tones, balance to the fruit, minimal hops....taste is mango, light cereal (wheat, Malt) finishing with a very slight bitterness.....mouth feel, body light, no alcohol, minimal astringency, carbonation makes a light tingle and acid. The label implies a Weizen is the underlying beer. This is utterly hidden by the mango, which is totally dominant. The result is a very simple beer dominated by the fruit. Perhaps a yeast change would increase the Weizen notes. BJCP 6/2/12/4/6

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz bottle. Pours reddish gold with a fruity aroma. Tropical fruit, mango I guess, flavor. Mild wheat finish. This wasn’t bad. Extra points for uniqueness. Overall, a decent beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
OK; just OK. The mango is discernible, and the base beer does appear to be a hefe. But, the flavor is quite weak -- even for its pretty spot-on ABV of 5% (for this style that is). And, not much hefe flavor going on. More of a "beer with some mango flavor." That said, highly drinkable. Nicely carbonated.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy amber color with a moderate off-white head on it. I get a lot of wheat and grains on the nose, with just a bit of tropical fruit (which I can only assume is mango). Taste isn’t all that sweet, but has a heck of a lot of grain elements to it. OK, but nothing I’d seek out.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at SEA. Pours a hazy orange color with an OK head. Light, wheaty aroma with a hint of mango. OK taste. Malty notes with some mango. Nothing special, really.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The beer poured out nice a hazy kind of orange and after allowing it to set it never settles. The aroma isn’t overpowering with mango, it is a little more subtle. The flavor of the beer is not bad, but the mango flavor does not come through as prominently as one would think. The palate does finish nice and clean so there is no lingering of the flavors. Not the greatest of the fruited beers, but it is an easy drinker and very good for a warm day.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle @ home, picked up at Aggie Liquor Fort Collins. Pours a bit hazy, dark orange appearance with a light tan head. Mango, bubblegum, apricot, a touch spicy aroma. A bit goopy/syrupy. Pretty decent mango flavor with some peach, apricot, and wheat notes. Not as bad as I expected.
