lighter wheat ale with a really nice mango tinge, not overwhelming or synthetic tasting, will drink this in the summer time for sure

Super hazy wheat beer with loads of mango. Feels like you're biting into a mango, for better and worse. Very rich and dense, which is a bit misguided for a beer better suited for summer time consumption, but overall I think the flavor and aroma more than make up for the body.

This beer reminds me of Konig Ludwig Weissbier or Franziskaner Weiss, a very pleasant wheat beer with a sweet taste. Where Franziskaner has notes of banana this beer has notes of mango. Exactly why I bought it, I love the other two beers mentioned and I love mango. As a bonus, this beer has a much lighter body and less carbonation, so its easy to drink in a refreshing way on a hot day. Most wheat beers are too thick and I end up preferring a lager on a hot day - not this!

I also like how it looks. It pours a thick golden yellow, reminiscent of mango flesh. Not clear at all considering the light body. Also, it pours with decent head that fades quickly.

Its best use is with spicy food. I pair it with indian food, like a vindaloo, as mangos fit very well in indian cuisine. It takes the edge off bhut jolokia spices extremely well. I also like the low abv, 4.0% as its easy to drink too much of it. I typically fill a Maßkrug and go to town.

Overall very good execution of a mango beer idea. Spot on for taste, smell, and look, and reminds me of a german weiss. I only knocked it for feel as its very light.

Appearance is a hazy gold peach color. Around a medium body as well as medium carbonation .
Aroma is very strong, mango juice (I swear I smell peach juice as Well) after I got past the mango a wheat, wheat flour smell shows up .
The taste is mango juice (again I taste a little peach syrup ) sweet but far from cloying, sugary sweet. An extremely mild bitterness that seems to come from the wheat , not hops. Even though there is a sweetness the wheat keeps it in check and makes it seem to come off a little dry
Overall it's a great post yardwork on a warm day beer. I could see it working well with certain desserts as well

96kcal for 4.0 ABV, that'd be on part w/ a light beer but I don't quite believe those stats. Mango is prominent, fairly good body like I'd expect of a wheat beer, tart but not sour, not much bitterness.

A - Pours a rather hazy bright yellow with a full inch of froth that settles to a pretty good lace ring.
S - mmm wow that does indeed have a good mango aroma with some wheat base but the fruit really shines.
T - Well those expecting fruit juice will be disappointed this beer has a very mild mango taste then some tart flavor followed by a bit of wheat to round out the tart.
M - Very light and easy to quaff back. Session able.

Overall a very tasty mango beer without being too sweet, tart or bitter. Try it!

On the cans I got it just says "Mango Cart Mango Wheat Ale" Not "Tart Mango Cart." Pours a very light gold color. The mango flavor is overpowering.

Look: Lemon-lime yellow with a thin white head that disappears in 2 minutes.

Smell: Strong mango, backed by wheat mash.

Taste: Wheaty notes intermingled perfectly with fruity mango. Exactly as it’s advertised.

Mouthfeel: Thin and highy carbonated, like soda.

Overall: Incredibly refreshing on a hot day.
