Freshly Brewed Mango Banana Beer

Here’s the label for my latest batch of home-brewed beer. I used 4 large ripe mangoes and 2 bananas in the high-test (i.e. high alc, strong) beer batch. I didn’t “add” some garbage flavoring after the fermentation was done (like most breweries do); I fermented the mangoes and bananas right along with the hops, barley, etc. This beer isn’t candied like some flavored beers. It’s got a delicate floral undertone thanks to the mangoes, but the flavor doesn’t dominate at all. It’s quite good and quite potent!

The 8% alc rating is an understatement. Sheesh!
