Aroma is strong mangoes and citrus. The flavor is mangoes, bright citrus/lemon, fruit, wheat, a hint of salt and a tart/sourish/medium sweetness finish.

Another day another Omnipollo, this time it’s their Bianca Mango Lassi Gose, which sounds brill (I love mango, it’s like my 2nd favourite fruit after watermelon). The combination sounds great too - tropical sweet mango mixing with the salty and tart flavours of the Gose style - what can go wrong? Not much when Omnipollo brew anything really. Last time out with Omnipollo was their Original Rocky Road Ice Cream, which is a dessert Stout, and before that was the first light beer I’ve tried from them which was the Original Ice Cream Pale - that was one of the better beers of 2017, so here’s hoping Bianca Mango Lassi Gose can deliver the goods like that Pale did.

Poured from a 330ml bottle into a Duvel tulip.

A: Nice murky mango-coloured body with a thin white cappuccino foam head that hangs around as a patchy lace blanket. Love my beers cloudy so this of course gets the “Doc Hops Brand Seal of Approval” - you can only find it on products which meet the high personal standards of me, Doctor Hops. 8/10.

S: Wow, if you put a blindfold on me and asked me what was in this glass I would say mango lassi - it smells exactly like a traditional Indian mango lassi! For those unfamiliar with the aroma of mango lassi it is: sweet mango pulp, yoghurt, and a hint of salt. You pretty much nailed it again Omnipollo. 10/10.

T: Ok, was not expecting that - this beer is insanely tart, like a Warhead lolly (extremely sour candy from Australia), to the detriment of all the other flavours. My best guess is poor shipping practice and overfermentation in the bottle has caused this (though I did also activate the yeast when I was pouring it). Either way the true flavours are lost in a maelstrom of sour candy character. Background hints of mango, lime and salt in there as well. Damn what a disappointment. 6/10.

M: Mid to light bodied with a decent amount of carbonation, a bit burpy this brew. 7/10.

D: Bit of a shame this brew was a massive sour bomb - I really wanted to enjoy some mango lassi flavours, which I’m a fan of, yet the sourness of this beer ruined those flavours. That said the aroma of this brew was right on the money - rarely do beers that are named after other drinks/food hit the mark as accurately as Bianca Mango Lassi Gose, however the real enjoyment of a beer for me is in the flavour - but if I could sit and sniff a beer all day this would be the beer. 7/10.

Food match: Antacid might be a valuable thing to have on hand here...

Poured from 1 pint, 6 fluid ounces bottle into glass. Brewed and bottled by Crazy Mountain Brewing Co. Denver, CO, Product of the United States.
Final bit of pour results in very cloudy, light golden body, like pale orange juice. Darker brown separate particles come from end of pour. Fizzy ring comes from any swirl of the glass. Very scattered lacing that settles back into body.
Lemon, biscuit, and salt on aroma.
Fizzy lemon taste, Balanced by salty addition. Late mango like taste slides in.
Perfect medium mouth feel for type.
Very good for a summer quencher or a reminder of a summer patio bar. Conjures up sunny and warm.

On tap at Overshores Brewery.

Looks like orange juice, bright orange yellow, opaque, with a thin ring of bubbles around the edge.
Smells fruity, a little sweet mango and salt.
Taste is very good. Mango fruit and other fruity tones like peach, but the salt and tart give it a nice edge and give it another layer of depth.
Feels well balanced. I was worried it would be super sweet and slick but it's not - the salt and tartness keep everything sharp and refreshing.

Overall, very tasty!

Picked up a bottle of this at Julio's a while back.

A - Poured into my Duvel tulip a crystal clear honey copper hue with a thin one finger head that faded quickly to leave thin wisps and a light halo.

S - Aromas of salt, lime, wheat, graham crackers, caramel malts. Absolutely no fruit whatsoever in this.

T - Taste is much better than the nose. Fair amount of salt and lime, little bit of vanilla and lactose, some light caramel malts as well that grow stronger with time. The mango is on the lighter side. Nice tartness but really generic.

M - Mouthfeel is brightly carbonated, crisp, but comes across as thin/watery.

O - Overall this was a huge disappointment. Not sure if it was an old bottle or what but the mango was practically nonexistent. Incredibly unfortunate.

Burnt gold color with a thin ring of 1/2 finger in the snifter.

Lots of sweet rindy fruit on the nose, somewhat tropical - mango, peach, papaya. Tons of salt, lime, and lactose. Some floral.

Lots of lime and salt on the tongue, with some mango, peach, apricot, and bright citrus. Just delicious. I can taste the milk sugar too. Sour lime salt on the finish. It's pretty lovely.

Feel is dry, crisp, and very carbonated. Very slight grainy grittiness.

Overall, a winner. I love this Gose, always have. Try it if you haven't yet.

Look: Pours a dark shade of golden yellow with a one finger, off white head that retains well and laces the glass moderately.

Aroma: Sour, over ripened mango , some notes of toasted grains and salt with a mildly sweet, floral, grassy undertone.

Taste: Upfront, sour notes of cooked, toasted wheat and savory caramel / honey. Midpalate slightly tart tropical notes of mango with tangerine and suggestions of salt. Some vague notes of biscuity creaminess.

Feel: Crisp, yet full bodied for the style. Lightly carbonated. Thirst quenching.

Overall: Quite nice, Bianca isn't overtly vinegary or sour, while still retaining a nice tart quality emblematic of the Gose style. Salt level is moderate and does not detract from the flavor. Not watery or too thick on the palate, excellent mouthfeel. The initial taste incorporates a solid backdrop of creamy, toasted grains to complement the tartness. Very enjoyable, especially on a hot day.

Rating: [A-] Excellent. 4.04/5.
