Proof Brewing Mango Wit
Tallahassee's Proof Brewing Mango Wit hit Miami liquor shelves fairly recently, so I grabbed a can to check out. On the back of the can, an unexplained Gorilla lets you know this has 5.7% alcohol and 18 IBU. Yes, I know the website says 5.2% alcohol--feel free to take up the discrepancy with the brewery--I double-checked my can. A little story on the can also sets your expectations.
Super ripe mango aroma, I liked that! Juicy mangoes first, nicely sweet. Belgian yeast is very noticeable while the wheat adds some texture and tang. Nice flavors, though I wanted more crispness and more bitter balance for refreshment.
