We are excited to present our refreshingly unique craft-brew, Anchor's Mango Wheat™; an ale made with sun ripened mangoes. Mangoes (Mangifera indica) are native to southern Asia, but Californians have enjoyed fresh mangoes since the 1850s. In 1857, Wide West reported that the mango "is at once the richest and most delicate of all fruits and all other fruits are comparatively insipid beside its intensity of taste. There is something in it which is nothing less than voluptuous."
Anchor's Mango Wheat is crisply refreshing, effervescent, golden ale that highlights the delectable character of this singular fruit: Brightness without sharpness, fullness of flavor without heaviness, tropical aroma without pungency, and complexity without cacophony. This brew pours marigold yellow, slightly hazy with white wheaty head. The aromas are fruity, ripe mangoes with hints of apricot and peach with a taste slightly sweet from mangoes with a hint of citrus tartness. It has a light and easy drinking mouthfeel and finishes crisp and clean with no lingering sweetness.
