Though the popularity of White Claw’s Mango flavor is unquestionable, it fails to impress in the same way that many others from its lineup do. The aromas and flavors don’t capture the convincing essence of fresh mango, and the palate could do with some extra sweetness to help provide balance.
White claw brand is ever expanding in reach and place to serve its costumers with the best quality and open new frontiers.
