Nose of sweet mango syrup high, much like the sweet liquid. The mouth is also very concentrated sugar and strawberry, this almost to saturation. The taste of Witbier is almost nonexistent, and the taste of beer. It is also sickening fast, that after a few sips.

Even the taste of the mango is already strong at the base sickening here with a glucose syrup doped, two sips are enough to feel nauseous.

Serving type: on-tap

Fruity aroma. Little to no beer flavour. Quite sweet - certainly a high sugar content. Perhaps more apricot-ish than mango-y. Would only drink one in a sitting. Recommended for fans of Fruli and people who don't like the taste of beer. Not horrible but I don't need to go out of my way to have this again.

330ml bottle. The ingredient list includes 'aroma' - heh.

This beer pours a hazy medium straw yellow colour, with two generous fingers of foamy, fizzy off-white head, which leaves zilch in the way of lace as it steadily retreats from sight. It smells of a blend of sweet apricot, peach, and mango puree, a slight tart fruitiness, and a mild generic graininess. The taste is still more apricot/peach, than mango, though the titular fruit does have some bearing. Beyond the sugary fruit character, there's not too much else - the malt backbone is well obfuscated. The carbonation is quite low, the body a sturdy medium weight, and syrupy smooth. It finishes with the muddled fruitiness growing somewhat earthy, and the faintest of dry, leafy hops showing up tardy to the party.

Not really all that mango-specific, and even less beer-y. If you've got an aversion to regular-strength brews, and possess a non-discriminating sweet tooth, have a go at this one.

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle.

The beer pours a clear light yellow color with a white head. The aroma is a mix of mango and wheat. The flavor is very strong mango and is very sweet. I also get some wheat and lemons in the flavor, but the mango is the dominant flavor component. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

I buy these sort of beers for my wife when I'm in Belgium and although I'm thanked they rarely get drank by the good lady. This one is no different, I'm having to drink and review it!

This is a 330ml brown bottle, just in date and poured into a Duvel glass.

A snow white foaming head sat on top of a dull, slightly cloudy, off golden body.

I am not the worlds biggest Mango fan, so the smell didn't excite me, being mostly, well completely actually, Mango flavoured.

I bet you can't guess what the beer tasted of? Yip, Mango's, I liked it however. No messing around here, the beer delivers what it claims, Mango's, and Mango's in an abundance. Nowhere near as sweet as I'd expected, it is sweet, but not sickly or overly so.

This would have gone down great with a bowl of plain Ice Cream or a selection of fresh fruits after a god meal.

Pleasantly suprised, not too bad at all. I'm even looking forward to my Floris Passion Fruit bottle a little more than I was.
