What the brewers say

“American-style wheat beers are similar in malt bill to their German weizen cousins, but exhibit much less yeast characteristic. These may be filtered or unfiltered and exhibit low to medium hops bitterness and aroma.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Some light fruit in the background—mango, if you say so. Fairly subtle. Sweetart-like tartness that reminds me of mango skin. Some cracker and lightly toasted aromas support from the base beer. Very light herbal hops. Maybe a hint of vanilla. Floral quality.”

Flavor: “Light bodied, slightly sweet, clean base beer with just the right amount of mango. The esters from the fruit are well-balanced with the beer, and the mango itself is perfectly ripe. Medium bready malt. Some low hops bitterness, low acidity, and very dry.”

Overall: “An easy-drinking summer beer with subtle fruit character. The light fruitiness almost seems as if it could be from yeast. Overall, the beer is very clean, refreshing, and drinkable with the added benefit of some tropical fruit flavors.”
