Mango Weizen

Mango Weizen (Trade Route Brewing)
Flavoured Wheat Beer

Ratebeer 3.01 44th percentile
Beer Advocate B

Taste +3

I'm sure you can imagine what the nose was like. Yup, it smelled of wheat tartness, yeast and tart mango. Luckily it was a nice balance of sweet and tartness. The sweet mango creaminess/juiciness balanced well with the tart wheat, biscuity yeast and lemon tartness. It poured cloudy with a orange hue like fresh mango juice.

Aftertaste +1

The mango juice and tart wheat rolls of the tongue and leaves a slight astringent residue.

Alcohol Content 0 5%

Value +1

This is a nice flavoured wheat beer. The added fruit juices did not overwhelm the palate.

Ingame Enhancement +1

Still sitting in my Seattle hotel room sampling many great beers.

Overall 6/10

If you are looking for a refreshing flavoured wheat, your search is over. This one would be perfect on a hot summer day.
