Notes: Mango Crush is the perfect choice for those who want flavor that reflects the fun of the summer season. Brewed with the perfect balance of mango puree and rich milk sugar, this gose-style ale provides a refreshingly smooth drinking experience.

Canned 3/10/20

Been seeing this one around quite a bit, and I have a local fairly simple mango sour in my top 10 all time, so I figured I'd give this one a shot

Pours a clear orange tinted gold with 2+ fingers of white head that lasts for a while, no lacing

The nose is a bit off the mark, some syrupy sweet mango and corn, quite off putting

The taste improves things a little bit, but still not really what I'm looking for in a session sour. Tingly sour on the front end of the sip with nondescript tropical fruit before being washed out by an odd malt that leaves a bit of a fruity aftertaste

I mean, at least this drinks easy. If it were too heavy this would be a drain pour for me. Light and smooth, could be refreshing on a hot day

This one was just mehh overall. Southern Tier confuses the hell out of me. This is only the 3rd beer I've had from them, the first being that pretty repulsive vanilla whipp ipa, then last week I found a single bottle of pumking on clearance and it was up there with the best beers I've ever had, and now this. Inconsistent brewery, but I'll keep giving them a shot

12oz can. Poured out a clear, golden orange color with a small, white head of foam. It smelled of mango, vanilla and caramel. Sweet mango taste with hints of cream and caramel.

The can listing is basically the way this smells and tastes: a session sour ale with mango puree, milk sugar and of course some citrus hops. Notes of orange peel, grapefruit and biscuit trail after each sip and the mango fades.

Taste is similar to aroma with the mango there but not too strong. Mildly sweet,tart,and sour and again not too overwhelming

Pours very pale. Not much of an aroma or taste really. Very slight mango flavor. Not very sour for a sour ale. Not much of anything to speak of. Very disappointing.

Decanted from a 12 oz (355 ml) can into a conical pint glass; canned 03/13/19.
A: Pours a nearly clear, golden color with explosive head formation (it was a hard pour), creating a 3 to 4 finger white head, but limited retention and lacing.
S: Grassy and grainy up front with a little tanginess and definitely mango aroma after sitting for a minute or two.
T: Sweet, although not outrageously so. Flavors largely mango, celery, and light caramel with a little toffee/toast on the back end. Only a tiny bit sour with no appreciable lactate.
M: Light bodied with robust, albeit short-lived, carbonation. Refreshing and crisp.
O: A drinkable, session "sour" ale. I enjoyed it, not sure it belongs in the style category. Basically a fruit beer.

Pours clear, gold in color with minimal head. Taste is peach, mango, and sour mix. High carbonation, slightly sour, super light bodied. Normally Southern Tier's beers scream their featured flavor. Here the mango is a bit subdued to the above average but not quite good sour flavors. If they did not label this mango, this would make an excellent tropical gose. As advertised, it makes for a good but slightly disappointing sour. That said, completely sessionable.

From the bottom of the can: "D.O.B. 03/14/19 23:16:44 FL"

Appearance: The beer has a light gold body with some haze and very little visible carbonation. There is no head except for a thin ring around the glass. Pouring aggressively gives a bit of a fizzy head but nothing substantial.

Aroma: The beer smells like wheat and coriander.

Taste: There is a massive dose of coriander up front, followed by a light wheat tang that flows around the mouth and then finalizes into a slightly tart orange flavor in the middle.

Mouthfeel: The body is smooth and luscious, light but textured, and enjoyable to drink. It is a bit sticky around the mouth at the end.

Overall: I was both very disappointed and very excited by this beer. I was excited because it had this wonderful Witbier quality full of texture, coriander, and this tartness I attributed to wheat. All of this is ruined though because the beer clearly states that this is an "ALE BREWED WITH MANGO PUREE AND MILK SUGAR." There is no mango aroma or flavor to be found in this beer. Southern Tier are famous for pushing flavors into the foreground and this was simply not the case. I would recommend it to people looking for an alternative to commercial Witbiers, but as a sour and as a mango beer, I would not. I would love to drink this beer again but I would probably put a piece of tape over the "MANGO" on the can so people don't get confused.

12oz can into a pint glass. Dob 3/13/19, so a little over 2 months old.

Looks pretty good in the glass. Golden yellow body, initial fluffy white head which disappears halfway through the drink. Small carbonation bubbles, okay lacing initially.

Surprisingly, there is a nice peppery aroma.

Odd two-tiered taste to this one. Initially there is the dominant peppery taste, then this is cleared out by a fruity wash that comes off more as orange than mango, possibly due to the tart base.

Mouth around medium, finish a little citrus.

Overall, an interesting drink, where the parts are greater than the sum.
