3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at blind tasting 5/09. Pours hazy dark gold with little head. Very yeasty, dough-like aroma. Sour mango dominates the flavor, with a little sweet balance. Very fizzy with a long sour finish. Not sure what they were going for, but it’s an okay beer.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From a 22 oz bottle this poured a cloudy mango orange color with a small white head and light lacing. Nose of citrus and mango. Mouthfeel is fizzy and much like a wine cooler. The flavor is dominated by the mango and it is hard to tell this is a wheat. Not something I would ever buy again.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
(bottle - 22 oz) Golden pour with a fluffy white head. Aroma is very subtle mango with some light malts. Flavor begins with a lot of citrus tang and some light mango sweetness. Mild wheat and grass in the middle and a nearly unnoticeable finish. Tastes rather alcoholic.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle but the old label still said Laughing Buddha. Pours out a golden yellow topped with a off white head. Aroma was of light mango and some toast malts. Taste more of the light fruitiness and some sweet candy notes. Pretty ho hum.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Another fruit beer. Why can’t a beer labeled Weizen be a Wheat beer that just happens to have fruit. Big sweet Mango aroma. Flavor overly sweet Mango and not much wheat. Will not have again.

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottle. Clear golden orange. Small head initially, dies in a matter of seconds. Nose is heavily fusel with strong presence of DMS. Saturated with isovaleric acid - metallic, twangy candy-flavored (mango?)... acidic... infected. Awful.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle pours a very cloudy orange with a modest but tight off-white head. Some mango aroma and a little bit of stale bread.
Flavor is a basic mild american wheat with a hint of soft mango. not over powering and definitely not mango soda pop ish. The unfiltered feel is nice and petty much what I expected. Mild, a bit bland but with an interesting twist. carbonation was a littel soft. but it works here. Doesn’t try too hard to be a "Fruit Beer" and it is good for what it is.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber from Liquid Solutions. Pours hazy orange gold with a small white head. Aromas of mango and wheat. Medium body with lightly frothy carbonation. Flavor is mango, citrus and yeasty wheat. Finish is a bit gummy, but the fruit kind of cleans that up. The citrus aspect makes it just the least bit sour. Refreshing stuff.

Bottle. Pours a hazy golden color with a medium off white head. Aroma of mango, banana, wheat and malt. Taste is semi sweet of fruit, malt and yeast.
Has a nice easy to enjoy flavor that was different. I actually thought it was a nice change of pace.Good brew!
