Very subtle mango flavor. Blends well with the wheat in the hefe. Easy drinker. Will be amazing during the hot and steamy NC summers. Have to admit, though, its much better on tap than in the bottle.

Poured into a Stone flute. Pours a hazy orange straw, the color of apricot or peach juice, with a thin white head that dissipates to patches, light lacing. Aroma of mango, apricot, light bready wheat. Flavor of bready malt and yeast, fresh mango, hints of biscuit and lemon. Finishes with more fresh mango and a hint of clove. Good medium body and carbonation. A nice fruit flavored hefeweizen. The fresh mango taste dominates the wheat, which is still substantial enough to support and moderate the mango flavor. Very well balanced and enjoyable. I'm impressed.

A: Pours absolutely beautiful. Hazed pale golden color with a thin bone white head.

S: These guys are brand new down here, but this smells skunked for some reason. Open air truck on the way to the bottleshop? I have no idea how it could have happened. Beyond the skunk, there's definitely potential. Some mint and mango with just a touch of wheat. But that skunk, tho.

T: Sort of a thin wheat blanket over a touch of mango, lemon and a kind of overlying hue of skunk. God damn. This beer definitely has potential, but I'd love to try it without it being light struck.

Really pleasant fruity taste plus a wheaty German flavor. Hazy golden yellow in the big New Belgium snifter with an abundant foam. Very aromatic with mango.

The mango flavor is fresh and clean, and tastes just like mango. This is less sweet than many Hefeweizens. This is a yeasty brew with just a hint of bitterness. Light and sudsy, an ideal quaff. This is one of the better fruit-flavored beers I've had, and rather more flavorful than the usual pale American Wheat that is often thin and sharp when doctored with fruit. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Mega Liquor in Hemet, Calif.

Date Bottled 4/8/15.

Pours a murky light whitish-orange with a foamy off-white head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of wheat, grain, mango, mango juice, and mango puree aromas. Taste is much the same with toast, grain, mango juice, and semi ripe mango flavors on the finish. There is a very mild amount of earth bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with really fresh and vibrant mango characteristics that make this one tasty and quite refreshing.

Serving type: bottle.

Serving type: on tap at the restaurant/brewery

Pours a cloudy pale yellow. Smells of mango juice, light bread, and sweet mango purée. Taste reflects the smell, though the strong mango aspects found in the smell are very weak in the taste. The base hefeweizen is slightly bready. The feel is thicker than most hefeweizens that, in my opinion, doesn't work well with the mango scents and tastes. Overall this is a good beer with an interestingly mango forward scent/ taste but the scents are much better.
