Pours a yellow-orange with zero head and lacing. Smell is very mango forward with some sourness and just the slightest hint of funk. The mango is not as prevalent in the taste and comes off as artificial almost as if Jolly Rancher made a mango flavor, very tart. Light bodied and carbonated, dry and tart mouth feel.

Got this because I really like the tropic fruit punch beer they did awhile back. Friends, this is no tropic fruit punch. The taste is cloyingly sweet and borderline artificial. Actually get more sour peach than mango. Too acidic. Body is thin and sticky, like high fructose corn syrup. It does smell wonderful however, with peach, mango, orange and pineapple all present. Some yeast chunks in the pour take away from look as well.

I have neither a Wild personality nor palate. So don't expect a favorable opinion.
Look at this murky morass without a head. Amazingly I Smell mangos, really wonderful ones. But Taste gives my those old sour blues that I kick myself for trying to like. In the mouth, it all gets even harder to enjoy. As for Having this with a nice dish, forget about it. If you like sours and Wilds, don't listen to me.

Poured to a BrewDog stemmed glass.

A: The body is yellow to orange having some visible carbonation. Head is non-existent after a couple minutes. No retention nor lacing.
S: The aroma is incredibly sweet and soft of Mango. Nothing too strong. There's some slight tartness in the aroma but also not that strong. It's a very good blend.
T: The taste starts off with a very empowering mango flavour that connects so very well with the light tartness in the end of this sip. This is a Session Fruit Sour Ale for that matter, it drinks very well in the Summer.
M: Body is low. Carbonation is higher than expected. Dryness is high and sourness is medium.
O: It's a great summer beverage for a sour fruit ale. Not an amazing beer technically but very very drinkable.

I have come to the CANclusion that I really need to CANduct back-and-forth reviews between the Eradication of The Bottle Backlog here at Chez Woody & The CANQuest (tm) or I am going to get nowhere, fast. I just completed a brewery CANned horizontal with St. Benjamin, so it is time for a Dugges horizontal,

From the bottle: "It might sound like an echo but it's not. This collaboration with Stillwater Artisanal explores the true depth of Mango flavor. Three layers of taste and aroma from fruit and hops. Go Mango!"

I Pop!ped the cap & gave it a very gentle pour as it was clearly meant to age in the bottle. An in-glass swirl raised a finger of foamy, soapy, bone-white head with moderate retention. Color was Straw-Yellow (SRM = > 2, < 4) with NE-quality clarity. Nose was absolutely mango, but with a sourness that seemed to enhance the fruitiness of the nose. How interesting! Instead of the sourness taking over, it actually helped with the smell. Mouthfeel was thin-to-medium, not watery, but not far beyond. The taste was primarily mango, but there was also a flavor which waffled between tart (puckering) and sour (catching me at the hinges of my jaw). In total, though, I have to say that tart won out. M felt it more on my lips than I did in my jaw. Finish was dry, tart & highly refreshing. It was an interesting drink, but one was enough.

It pours orange with a fizzy head that lasts a total of 20 seconds before dissipating entirely, leaving behind what looks like juice. Lots of floaties. The aroma is of fresh mango with some mild funk to it. The taste is tart but balanced by some juice-like sweetness. Very carbonated mouthfeel. Very refreshing.

Look is dark straw colored with a TON of floaties. A fingers worth of white head.

Aroma is actually really awesome mango. Juicy ripe mango. Best part if the beer.

Taste is odd. Pretty weak tart mango up front and then finishes wicked earthy and dry.

Feel is prickly and super dry.

Overall wish I had bought only one. Thank God I never sent out the second as an extra....

11.2oz bottle served in a little Cantillon glass. 228 16 is stamped very lightly on the neck of the bottle.

Pours a hazy light yellow with almost no head. Smell is mango, tart, and something a little funky.

Taste is tart and mango and not a lot else. Mostly tart mango juice. Not bad.

Mouthfeel is mild and a bit gritty. Overall, it's not bad.

Hazy with some suspended chunks of crud, thin layer of foam that dissipates to a wispy skim and minor spotty lace.

Aroma is punchy and mango forward right out of the bottle, but becomes overly sulfuric after a couple minutes.
Taste is tart and fruity, a bit of a one-dimensional kettle sour profile backed by a healthy dose of mango fruitiness.
Crisp and acidic, light bodied. Lactic plain yogurt. Carbonation is light to medium, somewhat juicy. Not much depth.
For the price i'd rather drink mixers with Steigl Grapefruit than this $6 11 oz. bottle.
Overall it's not bad, but not as good as their Tropic Punch Ale.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Hazy straw yellow pour, with a decent white head; particles floating all through this one.

Smells of pure sweet mango juice, some soured malt striking the nose at the backend.

Tastes follows suite, all mango-all day long; some stone fruit notes almost apricot/light peach, followed by a lactic sourness that breaks through at the end. Really delicious and refreshing. I could drink this with breakfast everyday if it were cheap enough.

Nice creamy mouth-feel, carbonation medium, drinks easy.

Overall definitely recommend this if you're a mango or a sour fan, or both. Not the cheapest beer, but it's definitely worth it for a once in awhile treat. There is nothing artificial about this beer; so throw any preconceived notions out the window. This is a winner.

330mL bottle from Sprayberry Bottle Shop (Marietta, GA). 4.99. No apparent bottling date. Served in a goblet.

Pours an opaque, pale orange tinted yellow with almost two fingers of fluffy white head. The foam quickly fizzes away, leaving only a thin rail and neither surface retention nor lace.

This smells great. The aroma bursts with juicy, pulpy mango, subtle soured pale malts and some tropical fruit cupcakes.

That juicy, fleshy mango is right there, front and center on the palate throughout. An initial potent blast of lacto sour gives way to pale stone fruit, funky, earthy bread and some faint lemon zest. Between the bounty of mango and absence of alcohol this is hard to drink slowly.

Dry, medium body with spritzy carbonation. Aftertaste of sour mango toast.

These Dugges/ Stillwater fruit sours are seriously good. Mango Mango Mango delivers authentic tropical fruit goodness in spades. If this were half the price and in six packs it would find a regular home in my refrigerator.

Really hazy bright straw color, white foam. Aroma is really tart and fruity with passionfruit and mango notes. Taste follows, tart and really fruity with intense tropical notes, quite dry on the finish with lingering mango juice flavor. Light, dry body with medium plus carbonation. Overall it’s a great sour fruit ale, not too acidic and really easy drinking.

One of the nice things about adding a beer is one gets to determine the beer category for the unusual offerings. On the bottle, this is described as a "Swedish Sour Ale". It further says that this is a sour ale brewed with mango. I placed this beer in the fruit category because, well, you'll see from the review below....

Pours gold with a light chill haze. Quick to recede head which leaves no lace on the glass.

The smell of this beer is the most repulsive I've ever had in all of my tastings. Imagine placing your head in a three-day old Porta-potty after a long music festival. Yes, it's that bad. I'm extremely hesitant to taste this beer.

Okay, the taste is sour but the smells show up in the swallow making this an undrinkable beer. The aftertaste does retain the sourness which cuts the putrid aspects in half. Decent body and highly carbonated.

I cannot ascertain what went wrong here. Full disclosure, this was obtained from supermarket as part of their make-your-own six pack, but I have tasted spoiled beer before and this is unlike anything I've ever experienced. If you're into masochism, you might like to join me in rating this one, but otherwise avoid at all costs--life is just way too short.

Picked up at San Diego's Best Damn Beer Shop. Pours with no head, lemon yellow, pale and hazy.

Very nice mango nose.

Mango taste tempered by lemon zest.

Mouth is only slightly tart.

I can't profess much experience with sour wilds, but this one was quite nice. A good lil mango bomb.

Praise, praise praise and more praise. I have never ever in my life felt like I was eating a mango. This is what I believe sour mango juice would taste like, the fact that it contains alcohol seals it. This is world class. Drink now.

Poured into a Sierra Nevada Spiegelau glass. Bottle cap says 29-11-18.

A- Pours a light straw color with a 1/2 inch white head that retains decently before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a mostly full sheet of surface foam. Resilient lacing leaves large clots behind.

S- Straight blast of mango puree and a bit of lactic acid.

T- The mango character is very vibrant without being too sweet. Moderately tart with a wheat-like flavor in the finish. Incredibly refreshing and drinkable. Also a bit of a spicy quality.

M- Dry with a lower level of pucker. Medium carbonation and a light body.

O- After the disappointing Tropic Sunrise, they're back on track with this one.

I've really enjoyed several other beers from this dynamic, collaborative duo of brewers, and I'm happy Brian of Stillwater is working with these Swedes and, thus, bringing their cool sour beer ideas overseas to America. This is, as the name would imply, a heavily mango-centric beer soured with lactobacillus.

Pours a pretty hazy golden yellow color with a smallish cap of effervescent, tight white foam that eventually bubbles away to nearly-nothing. Perhaps a half-millimeter collar of white remains in my glass, and the surface contains some spotty islands of vague foam. As expected for a kettle-soured beer, honestly; this is in no way, shape or form out of the ordinary and absolutely not indicative of the quality of this liquid. This is not a superbly attractive beer, though, no.

Nose is freshly-peeled ripe mango, slight lemon, orange juice and bright passion fruit with a slightly grassy note. Pineapple and guava notes as well. Literally smells like pineapple-mango-orange juice cocktail. Very impressive nose, though there's not much to it past the initial sniff. If you like mango and juicy sour beers, though, this will probably be your new favorite if the nose is anything to go by.

A lot more sour than expected on the tongue, with a sharp and acidic tang backed up by a surprising "beer" note of husky grains and leafy, grassy hops towards the finish. Didn't really see that coming... thought this would be a lot juicier, but it leans toward the tart and bright end of the spectrum. I'm really impressed with how hoppy this comes off, actually. The finish is very tropical and it doesn't feel like this note comes 100% from the mango. Really wonderful flavor profile here. They knocked this out of the park.

Feel is a little thin bodied, but that makes sense considering it's only 4.5% and kettle-soured. The malt base feels very crisp and light; not much (if any) wheat here. Bright and bubbly carbonation with a slight oily slickness. High marks overall, even though it has some faults in its individual characteristics.
