Mangoes are one of my favorite fruits. I work by a Wawa and they sell a package of ready to eat mango that I purchase quite often.
Style: Fruit/Vegetable Beer
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “American-Style Wheat Beers are similar in malt bill to their German Weizen cousins, but exhibit much less yeast characteristic. These may be filtered or unfiltered and exhibit low to medium hop bitterness and aroma. Inspired behind artwork: This character represents the stereotypical surfer guy relaxing on the beach, with shaggy hair and no shirt. Instead of a surfboard in the background we actually put a paddleboard because it has become a very popular sport by the Bell Isle Detroit River area. The background also includes Detroit’s skyline. We included colors like salmon, pink, orange and yellow to represent the fresh mango puree that is added to the boil in the brewing process.”
Random: I love all of the Real Housewives series. It’s complete fluff, but it’s the best to watch after work.
The beer poured with a half a finger of white head that dissipated quickly and left no lacing on the glass. The body was a hazy, lemon yellow with moderate carbonation visible. The nose had a combination of mango and lemon juice along with mango flesh. The taste had notes of mango juice and mango flesh and wheat with a weird twang at the end. The body was heavier than expected with light carbonation. It had a lengthy finish with mango juice. The bottle was $1.83 and came to $.15 per ounce. This beer wasn’t complicated, but satisfied me. I would have this one again.
