Durham Brewery Mango Hefeweizen (5.5%)

Mango HefeweizenWhat a great little bottle of beer this is.
The smell is peachy mango and spicy yeast, and the beer sits a glowing gold in my glass.
The malts are chewy fried banana flecked with red peppercorns, all spiky and chunky and sweet with caramel.
Unlike the Raspberry Hefeweizen which was delightfully bitter with fruit juice, in this one it’s the hops that give a green herbal bitterness.
They’re fresh and sharp and cut into the fleshy sweetness of the mango.
And what the mango does is provide a rich fruity background hum right through the beer, adding a fullness before jumping out at you in the finish where all of a sudden the mango takes over.
Lovely.
