Breckenridge Mango Mosaic

What the brewers say

“Mosaic hops contribute aromas of guava, mango, and passion fruit, lending a unique sweetness to the hops character. To build upon the tropical attributes of the hops, we added thousands of pounds of mango puree per batch. Munich malts provide body and balance as well as a subtle sweetness that pairs with the fruit.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Big barely ripe mango character up front joined by peach, lemon, lime, and pineapple aromas, almost over the top. Finishes with a light cherry just shy of cough syrup and some dry straw notes.”

Flavor: “Bright citrus character carries through, but any malt character is covered up. Bitterness is spot on. A touch of phenol toward the end of the sip (not uncommon for mango beers) that goes into a fruity tart finish. Like a German stollen (holiday fruitcake)—layered bready malt and fruit notes.”

Overall: “Not sure if I could drink more than one, but I would love to drink a pint of this. Fresh and juicy, but you’re going to need to love mangoes.”
