A Note on This Beer
When the mid-summer sun hits the sandy beaches and busy streets of Mexico, it’s time to cool off with a spicy-sweet Mangonada — a frozen drink made of mango sorbet and/or freshly frozen mango layered with spicy-sweet tajin (chili-lime salt).
San Antonio’s Weathered Souls — Hop Culture’s Best Brewery of 2020 — teamed up with Monterrey, Mexico’s Cerveza Rrëy to bring this refreshing, south of the border treat to all of us stateside craft fans!
They brewed today’s La Mangonada Fruited Gose with juicy mangoes, chamoy (a spicy sweet dried fruit condiment), and chili-lime Twang salt to give us a true taste of the Mexican Mangonada. And, to kick the tropicality up a notch, they layered in tangy passionfruit and lush pink guava!
Each sip opens with a huge burst of succulent mango, followed by a touch of lime salinity, more tropical fruit flavor, and a hint of chili heat. It’s smoothie-thick too, like a 6% ABV version of a Monterrey Mangonada you’d buy from a street stall vendor on a sultry afternoon.
Imagine you and a cold, frosty pint of La Mangonada on the next hot evening of the year. The sun beats down, but every juicy gulp of this Gose refreshes with a smack of salty-sweetness. How ‘bout picking up a few cans and quenching that thirst?

The smell of this beer mightve been the most offensive thing ever... I usually love all their beers too...
Not much mango
Needs a lot more Mango.!
One of the best I got in this shipment, but could definitely use a little more mango.
Very good n orange, wish I had more
Tases a lot like mango; add some Tajín.
Lots of Mango, almost like a carbonated mango smoothie with Guava. Not bad, but not what I was hoping for. Worth a try
Salty sweet mango notes with a twist of lime. Excellent paired with tacos or elote. Mango note could’ve been more juicy and ripe.
It was aight
Taste more like green unripe mangos. Good but all tart and not sweet at all
I bought two of these because my buddy and I love the namesake. He'll drink just about anything and I like stouts and sours. Neither one of us got more than half way through this beer, honestly I was really disappointed. I didn't taste any mango, and it was way too sour (and that's coming from someone who likes sours), it tasted like someone got half of a really bitter IPA, and half of a fruit cocktail sour and mixed them with a hint of pure citric acid. Wouldn't recommend, kinda bummed I spent money on these.
The nose on this immediately following opening is pure mango puree. The pour is super thick, to the point where it looks like that puree settled to the bottom of the can. The first sip is shockingly tart. I feel they overdid it in that respect. I was also hoping for significantly more fruit flavor as well. Despite how much this looks and smells like mango, it is distinctly lacking mango flavor, and has way more lemon and passion fruit notes. There is also a distinct lack of any chili notes. This is not necessarily a bad beer. Rarely have I seen a description further from reality, but the final outcome is not terrible. I see what they were going for, and they definitely missed the mark.
I loved this beer. First whiff was ripe mango. The good kind of mango, like champagne mango. The sweet smell balanced out the sourness, which I didn’t find to be too much at all. The amount of saltiness was perfect, ending with a guava note. Thanks for the mango burps
I love Tajin and I was super excited to try this, but I was sorely disappointed. It was extremely sour and tastes like Tajin but without the heat or actual flavor. The beer was extremely salty and I didn’t taste the mango at all. Extremely disappointed that it lacked the flavor.
Ordered from Tavour in a 16 ounce can, chilled, and poured into an imperial pint glass. Look: thick opaque orange, like orange juice, with a huge light orange head that quickly disappeared leaving the tiniest ring of foam on the glass. The fruit puree hangs just below the top layer of liquid, weird. Smell: guava, mango, a little funk, some tropical notes that are difficult to separate. Earthy pepper on the backend. Taste: passions fruit, guava and some mango, followed by a light sour note that meshes with some funk and trailing tropical fruit notes. Earthy pepper on the back end and in the nose (we chew on it and got the pepper and salt). No booze and no bitter or hop notes. Not sure we get chili-lime, but we get salt on the far trailing end of the taste. Feel: medium to full feel, carbonation is almost non-existent. The sour and puréed fruit mesh together well creating an interesting and refreshing feel. Overall this is pretty much what is advertised on the can. The mesh of the fruit and the mild funk is a little off-putting. Not sure what we think of this one. Bren said that when she chewed on it a bit she got a lingering flavor that reminded her of penicillin, she asked if I knew what she meant and I said “no, I’m allergic to that”… lol. Cheers!
absolutely delicious mango flavors with a little kick of heat. reminiscent of a spicy mango margarita, but thicker. excellent all around
good summer drink!
Better with tacos
Better with tacos
It was ok. Would I buy again? Probably not
Would buy again. Added cayenne and salt.
lots of mango and passion fruit, but wanted more chili salt to add a little punch. generally solid but was hoping for more
This was terrible. Weathered souls you should be ashamed. This went straight down the drain. Even smelled like ass
I liked it. Haters gonna hate but it felt like being punched in the mouth by a passion fruit and really that’s all I want.
When I read this and saw the description I really thought I was gonna get a beer that tasted like the sidewalk vendors. I was wrong.
Don't listen to the haters. This is a nice Mango salty lime beer. Turn it upside down to distribute well. If you like mangoes like the ones in the carts you'll like this one.
This shit is SOUR bro. This beer tastes like tajin. Do not recommend lol
ehhh. i was really expecting more from this one based off the name.
Very sour and spicy. Mango flavor. Thick in the glass.
Ehh. More like light mangonada.
This sour would pair well with any Mexican dish. It is sweet and salty with a hint of chili powder to it as well. It has a tropical fruit taste with passion fruit, guava, mango, and some lime.
very strong mango aroma, mild taste.
I think this is pretty good. not my favorite
add chamoy make a michelada
