So todays review couldn’t be in greater contrast to yesterdays, were i loved everything about yesterdays beer this one is a hodpodg of different styles and just fails to live up to either of them in a meaningful way.
when i poured this into the glass it initially promised so much, it was golden brown in the glass with with a head that initially fizzed but quickly dissipated and didn’t stay round for long. looked more like a glass of coke than a beer if im honest.
this beer was tart in the nose, now if i was to describe the aroma it would be rather sickly but allow to put my beer nerd hat on for a second and paint you a picture. This is a beer of contrasts the bitter flavors present in the Berliner fight with the sweetness of the mango and both fight with each other for supremacy and both fail in a big way.
the taste is somewhat par for the course with this beer it promises alot and then fails to deliver anything meaningful. you get this initial burst of of bitter and then another burst of sweet and then they merge to create that sickly sensation all over again. this sensation lingers on the tongue for far too long as well, not something i want to repeat.
that sickly sweet taste makes this beer completely unsessionable in my opinion.
avoid, avoid not worth it at any price
this is not a beer i enjoyed drinking and wont be drinking again. it looked fine int he glass but there was a sickly sweet taste that flowed throughout this beer that just made it undrinkable.
