A lighthearted wheat ale brewed with real mango.  Burst of mango up front on the nose with a bit of banana & clove in the background from the hefeweizen yeast.  Juicy mango flavor all the way through.

For this wheat beer brewed with mangos, the aroma starts generically citrus but unfortunately turns meaty with a disagreeable butterscotch diacetyl which growing stronger as the beer warms.  The flavor is much more pleasant with mango and tropical fruits with a light wheat character but unfortunately along with the detriment of a light lingering butterscotch.  The finish is lightly bitter with an enjoyable light tartness.  Unfortunately, the mango character is not at its best and the diacetyl detracts from the overall enjoyment.
