Intro: A 440ml can, canned on 18th November 2020, with a best before date of 18th May 2021. Poured into a 3 Fonteinen stemmed glass.
Appearance: A thick puree like mango juice orange colour with a one finger orange head that disappeared almost immediately to a replenishing thin cap, with no lacing, but some puree fruity bits on the sides of the glass.
Aroma: Sweet fruit, ripe mango, mango juice, with slight raspberry notes.
Taste: Lightly sweet and sour, mango, mango juice, lemon, with notes of raspberry and vanilla.
Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied, thick, smoothie like, with moderate carbonation.
Overall: It’s a good thing I love mango juice, because mango dominates here in both aroma and flavour. As in their description, I’d still question whether this was ‘beer/not beer’ though. And although I won’t answer this question, I definitely did enjoy this drink.
