2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
22 oz. bottle. Pours cloudy and is the same color as mango juice. Thin-moderate fizzy white head completely disappeared before I had a chance to take my first sip. Lots of small carbonation bubbles continuously rising to the surface. Very light aroma of mango and some other faint tropical fruits. The flavor is mango with some very light metallic notes along with just a bit of malt. Very effervescent on the palate; more like a soda actually, but with that semi-phlegm-like (oooh two hyphens!) mouthfeel I get with mangoes and peaches. Not my thing.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From Skyview. Mango in the flavor and aroma. Some wheat as well, clearly recognizable as a wheat beer, with some yeast. A little sweet. Cloudy orange color and thick palate.

Tap at PIB. I honestly liked this one more than I thought I would, maybe because it was so godawful hot outside at the time. Light golden pour with a thin white head. Very carbonated. Aroma of mango, wheat earth hops. Fairly refreshing at the time, who knows if I’d like it under normal circumstances.

Really gross in that I poured the rest of it out, and it was only a 4oz taste. Its bland, both color and taste. The mango is more unripened flavor that doesn’t mix well with the wheat.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle: Cloudy light golden pour with an off white thin head. Odd aroma- some vegetal character- squash like with a lot of pineapple juice as well, more so than mango. Light fluffy feel- mild tart yet watered down fruitiness- very reminiscent of pineapple juice. Thin and simple. Eh.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bombers shared by Trevor at Shenandoah and Peter at the Box lambic tasting. Pours a very cloudy dull yellowish straw gold with a nice lasting medium white head. Aroma is earthy, nutty, vegetal with an unripe mango character- a bit dirty and strange yeastines- some funky phenols and some plastic. Flavor is dull malts, crackery with unripe mango turning a bit dirty and earthy, leather, off burtn toast, doughy earthy wheat and crackers with a stranger herbal and vegetal finish. Meh

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Super cloudy, alright - opaque orange coloured body with a thin white head. Aroma of potent mangoes, hops, coriander seed and a bunch of wheat and yeast. Medium-bodied; Strong fruity flavour up front of mangoes and apricots fades to a potent fake sugar flavour that just reminds you of aspartame and then fading to a sour pungent fruit flavour - very interesting and complex throughout. Overall, pretty complex and shows nice flavours, but some of the flavours are way too off for me. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Bottleworks in Seattle, Washington on 25-April-2009 sampled in Reston, Virginia on 10-July-2009.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Received 22-oz bomber via trade with 5000. Pours a semi-hazy golden straw colored brew with a decent size white head that has some nice retention and excellent lacing. Aroma of golden grain malt, some tropical fruit, mangos, banana esters, a hint of clove and some yeast. Taste is medium bodied, some carbonation with flavors of multi-grain golden malt, sweet tropical mangos, banana esters and a hint of yeast. Finish is slightly spritzy, with a short lived mango and banana aftertaste that quickly disappears.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazed dark straw color with a moderate white head. Sweet wheat and mango aromas. If this one gets too warm, it really does start smelling like over-ripe mango and nears an over bearing scent. Flavors of sweet fruit, with mango and banana. Some light wheat and hint of cloves. Fairly thick in feel. Finish and linger again are dominated by mild fruit and wheat. Please drink cold.
