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.
