3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml bottle. Pours a crystal clear light yellow color with no head at all. The aroma is honey, mango, some pepper, and apple juice. The flavor is much of the same; not crazy sweet as I would expect, honey, mango and tropical fruits, with a nice pepper spice thrown in. Nice to try, but not my thing.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear yellow, no head or carbonation really, looks like white wine. Aroma of floral fruity perfumes. Taste follows, not too sweet, a hint of mango, but I don’t really get the pepper. It’s good for a mead, but I don’t think I’m gonna come back to it.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours like a glass of white wine with no head. Could also pass for urine. Nose is very floral, with notes of honey and mango. Taste is heavy on the mango. Not relentlessly sweet. Nice tartness cuts it. Pepper is strong on the backend and aftertaste. Well put together and tasty.
