Default Mango Beer

So I would like to make a mango beer. I'm new to brewing and not sure where to start. If you were going to make a mango beer where would you start. (I have the mango's) I like sweet beers.

My girlfriend made an Imperial Mango Hefeweizen that turned out great. She used 6 mangoes but they pretty much all fermented out. There was only a very subtle note of the mango.

Try Citra hops they give a tropical fruit and mango flavor with nothing else added. I loved my last IPA loaded with citra.

I did 6 mangoes - added cut up & frozen -- to the secondary of BM's centennial blonde.
Pretty good!
