Bottle with Carla. Pours a hazy gold with white foam. Smells sweet and lightly sour of various tropical fruit. Tastes lightly tart with lots of wheat and fruity flavors including passion fruit and mango. Very good for a non-beer drinker.

Bomber served in a flare pilsner. Pours hazy deep orange with a short-med off-white head. Short retention, minimal lacing. Mango is there on the nose along with some barnyard. The mango is more so in the flavor, which is medium sweet. LIght-medium body, creamy texture, good carbonation and finishes slightly dry.

hazy amber beer. Dry crisp palate. Sharp sour start which is generically fruity and more citrus than mango. Extraodinarily dry finish that sucks your mouth sandpaper dry. Nice flavour, stupid palate!

1.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Trade Route Mango Weizen is a golden ale with some tiny particles in it. It has a thin white head that vanishes in a few seconds. It has a fruity wheat and mango aroma with a note of peach. It’s light bodied and watery. The mouth feels chalky and scratchy the instant this beer enters it. It tastes very sour. Is this on purpose or did something happen to this bottle? Is this supposed to be a Berliner Weisse? What the hell? I can taste the mango but the sourness is overwhelming. Yuck. Down the drain it goes.

Bottle shared by swoopjones: Bright golden brown color beneath a white head. Doughy wheat filled aroma with some light citrus undertones. Nice fruity tartness with some lemon-like citrus notes and just the faintest hint of clove in the finish. A nice tart, quenching beer that was better than expected.

Bottle shared with Rudolf, IPFreely & Frylock. Bright golden pour, mango filled fruity aroma. Taste consists of fruity tartness, mango, acidity. Lively mouthfeel. Not sure if tartness was supposed to be there (think DFH Festina mango) but pretty good

Bottle tasted at Mike’s place, March 2010. Hazy gold body with a few floaties. Nose is a little plastic, some peach, fruit, a tiny bit of dusty caramel. Flavor is a bit of tart fruit, white grape juice & tannin. Interesting - dunno if the sour/tart character is supposed to be there, but I like it.

I drank this beer over six months ago (somehow managing not to enter it in my ratings) and it still stands as one of the worst beers I’ve had. While I have to give props to originality, I wouldn’t buy this again. The pour is a cloudy orange. Aroma is primarily wheat and mango. But the taste, well, the wheat and the mango do not mix well at all, simply making a sweet mango taste on top of wheat, and leaving quite a bit of sediment at the bottom.
