look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Reviewed from notes. Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a Cigar City Brewing snifter glass.

A: Hazy light gold, almost straw colored - like lemonade. A finger’s worth of white head fades away quickly despite a good amount of visible carbonation.

S: Light lactic and lemon citric acid. A mild gristy cracker malt body. Honestly, just not much in the way of aroma here.

T: Light citric tartness, lemon rind, and tropical fruits (especially mango). Two-row and cracker malt body. No discernible pilsner malt presence, though maybe a mild wheat husk. I don’t get any lactose flavor (as the label indicated to expect). Some tart acidity and dryness in the hang, though not overly so in any category. Just a hint of saltiness at the swallow.

M: The body is borderline watery, or at least quite light. A good amount of carbonation sensation and low alcohol presence.

O: Nothing really wrong with it...just unexciting and forgettable. The fruit isn't as prominent as expected, and the tart level is fairly low with minimal depth and no funk to speak of. And not much salinity beyond the hint at the swallow. Meh.

A 500ml can with a best before date of 5th November 2019. Poured into a Holy Mountain tulip glass.

Appearance: A hazy light golden straw yellow colour with a puffy two finger white head that had good retention and left nice lacing.

Aroma: Lemon peel, citrus zest with a touch of mango.

Taste: Lightly tart and sour, light unripe mango, lemon, citrus zest, rind and peel, and only a touch of salt.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with moderate to soft carbonation.

Overall: Not bad, but I was hoping for more mango, salt and carbonation as a Gose.

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.

Poured to a teku glass.

A: The body is yellow hazy and shiny. The head is minimal and white. Showing awesole retention. No lacing. In the end of the pour, a giant solid got inside the glass. A friend of mine also had the same problem.
S: The aroma is very IPA-like, having a citrus aroma, a piney and resinous and then a really big Mango profile, resulting in a very interesting aroma.
T: The beginning of the taste has a tart-like sweetness resembling a natural yogurt. There's lots of Mango, with a milky touch. By the end, there's a very mellow sourness and a mild bitterness of corra hops.
M: The body is low. Carbonation is high. Alcohol is low, at 3.5% ABV. Bitterness is low but sourness is medium/mellow.
O: Another great sour by Omnipollo. Great stuff here!

Tastes like sour mango, tart citrus, berries, salt, bready crackery honey malt, creamy lactose, vanilla, with floral earthy herbal grassy pine. Feels medium bodied, creamy with moderate carbonation.

A: The beer is crystal clear dark yellow in color and has no visible carbonation. It poured with just a thin layer of white bubbles on the surface and a narrow collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of limes are present in the nose along with some notes of sourness.
T: The taste follows the smell, starting out with some lime flavors and a bit of sourness and finishing with some hints of saltiness.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and slightly tart on the palate with a low amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very easy to drink and has some refreshing properties. It would make for a nice selection on a hot summer day.

Pours a yellow straw color with enough fog to it to obstruct reading anything on the other side of the glass. Head formed up to a finger and a half in height, and white in color after a quick and aggressive pour straight into the glass. Retention is poor, with no lacing. As should be expected of this style though. Aroma is a light fruitiness, with peaches specifically, over a slightly sour bite. Flavor profile is peaches and strawberries with a lactic sour finish. Mouth feel is crisp, albeit a little fizzy, with a thickness at the median mark. Overall, a flavorful gose that slips down smooth and tasty. It's not overly confident or assertive with fruit flavors, but it has enough to keep each sip tasty and refreshing.

Served in a 12oz snifter.

smell - some hints of mango, some sourness, malts
taste -tart is probably the biggest note here for me. there's definitely a mango presence but i expected it to be heavier. i'm not picking up on the yogurt here either - its a solid gose with some briny mango essence happening. overall pleasant and i didn't buy it with high expectations but there are plenty of other wacky omnipollos to try.

330 mL bottle. Pale yellow body. Smells of yogurt, mango, and some sorta sour citrus. Tastes of mango. Low sourness. Like, barely sour. Sweet lactose. More of a grain flavor. Some salt in the back. Light body. Nowhere near as good as the blueberry version.

330ml bottle - a white mango beverage gose - ok.

This beer pours a hazy, pale golden yellow colour, with three fingers of puffy, rocky, and somewhat fizzy bone-white head, which leaves some crooked sudsy stone arch lace around the glass as it lazily recedes.

It smells of musty and grainy pale malt, a lesser cereal wheatiness, sour milk, muddled stone fruit (mango, sure, but some peach as well), white grapefruit pith, saltine crackers, and a very subtle yeastiness. The taste is gritty and grainy pale malt, a still understated wheat cracker thing, underripe mango and some of its stone fruit friends, prominent generic grapefruit flesh, white wine grapes, some minor lactic tartness, sea salt, and a bit of earthy and floral green hoppiness.

The carbonation is adequate for the task at hand, via its supportive frothiness, the body a so-so medium weight, and not particularly smooth, as the tart, sour, salty, and fruity essences all have a culpable hand here. It finishes trending dry, the malt starting to give up the ghost, amongst the swirling remains of those mouthfeel bandits just mentioned.

Overall, this is a very well rendered fruity gose, the mango showing up, but in a reduced and edgy version of itself. Tart, refreshing, and easy to drink, especially as the 6 points of ABV don't seem to want to be seen in the least. Worthy of a go, even if you're not a particular fan of the style, which I suspect might be the whole selling point of this offering.

The mango is extremely well expressed, but it reminds me more of a Mosaic-derived mango than the smell you get from a beer brewed with actual mangos. Nevertheless there's also some hints of pineapple, and the yoghurt is a lot more pronounced with this version than with the raspberry. Slight hints of garden herbs toward the back, no tartness on the nose whatsoever.

Some watered-down lemon zest and candied tropical fruits comprise the main impression on the palate. There's actually a substantial yoghurt flavor toward the back which nullifies most of the mango and citrus notes. The herbal notes provide a nice finishing touch to the somewhat confusing palatal combination.

Medium-light bodied with somehow a creamier initial mouthfeel with the same spritzy finish. Carbonation is about the same as the Raspberry Lassi. Overall I'd say the Raspberry is more reminiscent of a Gose, whereas the Mango seems to be a better representation of the Indian dessert. Not a big fan of the Mango as I'm deathly allergic to the fruit itself, but this is still an outstanding brew.

From Beergium. BB 6 Jun. In Teku glass. After dinner. Sip begins fruity (mango, grapefruit), continues slightly tart and ends a bit salty and noticeabily zesty, a bit too much Great nose, fruity and salty. Thin body. Low carbonation

Looks somewhat gross with a yolky-body (I assume from the lactose?). The Raspberry Gose was darker and thus harder to notice. Aromas of pineapple juice and mango. Tastes of salted mango water. Has a bit more salinity than the Raspberry version and not nearly as fruity. A well put together Gose, if not overwhelming.

L: Poured from a bottle to a cylinder glass. Had a pale yellow color and a cloudy consistency. There was a two inch, foamy, fairly long-lasting head. Not a whole lot of lacing.

S: A nice, subtle aroma of light fruit, citrus, malt, and salt.

T: Tasted of some of the typical gose saltiness, a light malt quality, citrus (grapefruit, lemon, especially), and a lot of tropical fruit (mango is at the top of the list). An extremely fruity flavor that's heavily sweet and tart, but is balanced out by the malt and salinity. Very vibrant and tasty.

F: A high amount of carbonation with a lively finish. Light-bodied.

O: Of course, this beer deviates a bit from the typical gose, but it still works. It may be too fruity and sweet for most, but it's still well made and drinkable.

Didn't really know what to expect here. Pours a hazy light orange with about three fingers of foam. Smells of tangerine and grapefruit with some lemon. Taste was initial citrus with a salty tartness that sweetened as it warmed. For how much it foamed in the pour, became flat somewhat quickly. Great warm weather/brunch beer.

Bomber poured into a tulip glass

L- slightly hazy. Dark straw to pale gold. Decent sized off white head that dissipates quickly.

S- the mango is very evident. Also, get loads of grapefruit coming through. Almost smells like straight up grapefruit juice.

T- citrus, tropical fruit, and champagne. Finishes with a salty bitterness

F- the carbonation is perfect. Gives is a champagne quality. Medium bodied with a slightly slick feel

O- this reminds me of drinking a mimosa. The mango adds to its complexity. And the salty finish is Fantastic. The lactose isn't prominent, but honestly, there's a lot going on here, so I'm sure it adds something. This is a fantastic gose. One of the best I've come across.
