3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the Pour House. Yoiks! This one came out cloudy and viscous - almost like a lightly carbonated nectar rather than a fruit beer. I enjoy the Pineapple Under the Sea, and the mango flavor is huge in this one. Nice nose, sweet and musky and not too saccharin. Carbonic acidity and a bit of hop character help to attenuate the huge sweet mango flavor here, but even the viscosity of this murky fruit beer can’t be lessened by carbonation. Tastes pretty good, almost like a lassi but not as creamy. Strong mango flavor throughout and finishes sweet. Not one you’d drink a whole bunch of at once, but a very refreshing summer beer.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Sampled on draft at the brewery this beer poured a murky apricot color with almost no head that faded quickly and left no lacing although fruit particulate did adhere to the side of the glass. The aroma was very strong mango, fruit cocktail and sugar. The flavor was very strong mango, fruit cocktail and sugar. The finish was long, very sweet and fruity. Thick and syrupy body. Exceptional.

(draft @ Rivertowne Pour House - Monroeville, PA) Light golden pour with a fluffy white head. Aroma is sweet and fresh mangoes with some light wheat. Flavor is very sweet with lots of mango flavor and a very light and crisp wheat finish.

The beer poured slightly hazy and the color of lemonade with not much head (growler pour). I’m not usually big on fruit beers, but this was really a good beer. The fruit is major part of it, there are big mango and citrus flavors in the beer, with just a little grainy/wheat aftertaste. I think this is basically a wheat beer with the mango added. Couldn’t find much about the beer on the Rivertowne website because I think it is fairly new so please add info when it becomes available. Thanks.
