Pours a finger of head on a clear straw colored body.
The aroma is mango and strawberry. Nice.
The taste starts as a contrast to the smell: watery wheat with some mild bitterness, mild sweet takes over in the middle to end. Finishes with a strawberry sweetness.
The texture is fizzy with a lighter body and moderate carbonation.
The smell and taste counter each other and are difficult to reconcile. Still, it tastes good, though on the sweeter (fruit) side.

at $4 A 22oz i had high hopes but this wasn't much of money well spent.
there was barleey any mango , i mean it was so subtle you only tasted a trace in the aftertaste.

the mouthfeel was ok it wasnt too thin , the pour was a orange almost amber color ,
i didnt taste much wheat , which is sad because it seems shock top has more wheat in it and thats an A-B product .

i am really disappointing by northwest brewing company , i could have bought a pyramid or portland brewing for almost half the price and had twice the flavor .

this should be 1.99 tops its tastes so rushed and over priced
i will probably never buy another $4 beer again .

Quite mango flavored, and after it warms up the last sips are just plain mango nectar fruity. A little sharp fruity zing to the stuff. Not as fragrant you you might wish for.

This pours a hazy medium amber color in the pint shaker. It starts out with a decent spritziness in the mouth but trails off. A very modest head. Overall, it has a rather silky mouthfeel with that tropical soda tanginess.

A pleasant quaff and the fruit flavor is among the better I've had in this American wheat style, but it suffers from the simple taste and less than adequate sudsiness.. On tap at Empire Ale House in Mt. Vernon.

A: Pours a hazy yellow brown with a finger of white head that fades into a foamy ring with little lacing.

S: Sweet breads and tart fruit notes dominate with aromas of bubblegum and mango int he background.

T: Hearty bread flavors dominate with a touch of bitterness. Mixed in are spicy yeast flavors and subtle mango notes.

M: Mid-light body with highish carbonation, this beer is just a little too heavy to be crisp and refreshing, but still feels pleasant.

O: A decent beer overall. Nothing special, but tasty and refreshing.

Poured into a Celebrator pokal. Pours a hazy medium orange amber. Half finger white head dissipates rapidly to a tiny ring of bubbles around the glass. Aroma of wheat, bready malt and a bit of light fruit, not readily identifiable as mango, but pleasant. Flavor is light wheat and caramel malt with light, tart lemon citrus and fruit juice from the mango. Finish starts quite tart, then transforms into a light, surprisingly caramel aftertaste. A bit unbalanced as if it's not sure whether to be a tart Berlinerweisse or a weizen. Flavor is fairly subdued. Needs more balance and intense flavor, but holds together as a decent pale wheat with an interesting fruit component. Light bodied and the carbonation did not last throughout drinking the glass, lowering the mouthfeel rating.

Poured from 22oz bomber into a weizen glass.

Appearance: slightly hazy orange hue with a great effervescence and three fingers of frothy ivory foam. Nice!

Smell: light wheaty aroma with a light, pleasing fruitiness which is not readily identifiable as mango. Not bad.

Taste: pretty solid malty flavor with a dash of wheat and a very light dose of that nondescript fruitiness. The flavor is actually quite earthy. Not bad, but not very mango-ey.

Mouthfeel: medium to medium-light body with a great level of carbonation and a good creaminess. I like it.

Overall: this beer isn't bad, but it doesn't really impress me, either. I would have liked a bit more fruitiness, based on the beer's name.
