Smells like sugary mango almost candy like. It has a tropical mango taste. With a creamy middle feel. With a slight peppery finish and a little carbonation on the tongue. Definitely different.

bottle. Deep golden with minimal head. Mild honey sweetness. Light mango, but more watered down than I expected. Spicing from peppercorn comes through well. Medium dry finish.

UPDATED: SEP 19, 2015 As a session mead, looks pale and nearly clear as it’s poured, but the aroma is instantly pleasant. As one of the most unique meads, beers or ciders I’ve ever had, it will be memorable. Light and refreshingly unique, I thought for such a light beverage bthe pepper, honey and mango were expertly balanced, and surprisingly went very well together.

Tap @Fermentoren Aarhus. Pours clear, almost white, with a fizzy, tiny head. Aroma: honey, white pepper, svømmehal, mango, overripe mango. Taste is sweet tart, very fruity, more medium ripe mango. Tiny spicy and slightly dry finish. High carb, light but still sticky body.

Bottle. Pours a very pale yellow with a lot of fizzy carbonation at first that dies down to nearly nothing in short order. Aromas are sweet (almost like pear juice) with a little hint of pepper. Flavor is sticky and sweet with a zing of carbonation and pepper on the tail end. I thought it was carbonation at first, but now I’m thinking it is pepper... Not really my thing I guess...
