    Mangos (pureed)

    The flesh of a mango is peachlike and juicy, with more or less numerous fibers radiating from the husk of the single large kidney-shaped seed. Fibers are more pronounced in fruits grown with hard water and chemical fertilizers. The flavor is pleasant and rich and high in sugars and acid. More fresh mangos are eaten every day than any other fruit in the world. The 'Paisley' design motif is a design from India based on the mango

So far so good . . . interesting taste

Normally I don't like to touch hefeweizen, as I usually brew it straight up. It has a delicate flavor that can be dominated by fruits and the like. However mango has a nice mild flavor that seems to complement a wheat beer. It has only been bottled for a week but I had to taste a few bottom of the fermentor bottles that were last capped. Although a little green and needing a few months of conditioning it was really interesting. As I live in Florida and the mangos included in the 2ndary were from my back yard I have eaten tons of mangoes over the years. Adding mango to wheat beer really brings out interesting subtle flavor in the mango that I've not experienced before. BTW I used a 2 gallon 2ndary to experiment with lychee extract (also grown in my backyard). Now that is extremely interesting and unlike anything I have tasted before. I will hopefully remember to add more notes when I have let both batches condition properly for a fair assessment.
