Share This Review

Mango Wit is a Belgian-style Witbier brewed by Proof Brewing Co., and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in a wheat beer glass from a can.

Appearance

The Witbier pours a cloudy golden orange and is topped by a thick cap of dense, off-white foam that shows good retention. Streams of fine bubbles continuously rise in the glass. A smattering of lace clings to the sides following the head’s reduction.

Aroma

The aroma has moderate strength and wafts the nose with a scent of mango with hints of spice and grain.

Flavor

The palate blends mango and doughy bread and finishes with a mix of tart orange, sweet mango juice, and crisp apple. Lightly spiced with clove.

Mouthfeel

Its feel is relatively smooth with a body that’s a shade under medium and a little over medium carbonation. Finishes slightly dry and mildly acidic.

Overall

Its color is a little dark for the style and its head retention could be better but that’s nitpicking. The aroma isn’t particularly strong but it is pleasant. The palate’s use of mango isn’t overpowering and the tart citrus on the backend balances its sweet flavor nicely. Its feel could be creamier and use more carbonation. The Mango Wit is an enjoyable brew but doesn’t quite compare to the better Witbiers across the pond.

About the Witbier

The Belgian Witbier dates back four centuries and all but vanished by the 1950s. The style was revived at Hoegaarden and its popularity has grown during the modern craft beer movement. The wheat ale ranges in color from pale straw to gold and has moderate alcohol strength. Its feel is dry and slightly creamy with a medium-light to medium body. Effervescent from high carbonation. Light bready malt with little to no hop bitterness. Bright orange citrus flavor typically spiced with coriander.
