COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Many years ago, a mysterious book was discovered by a group of friends in a Ferndale, MI basement. A translation of its contents revealed the recipe for an ancient beverage using mango juice, honey, and black pepper. What they didn’t realize was that creating the beverage had dire consequences. Stricken by fear after its compleation, the friends tried to contain the terrifying forces into this very bottle. Once opened, however, no one can say for sure if it can be conquered. Defend your soul or join us...

emacgee (4376) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JUN 16, 2013
Very clean and light pour with a tint of yellow. Wonderful nose, very clean and fruity notes with a nice ethereal honey note on the finish. Peppery notes help to avoid a cloying nature. Crisp and lightly spicy in the flavor, soft fruit and mango notes with a light honey background. Medium body with a crisp carbonation and peppery finish.

Nocturne (1172) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2015
500ml bottle. Pale golden shade, fleeting head. Aroma makes for an interesting combination. Very pulpy fruit notes mixed with spicy and herbal pepper. Not sure I fully appreciate it. Fruity honey taste with long peppery finish. Some dryness. Taste is more cohesive than aroma I’d say. Solid and drinkable stuff. Good effort.

cheap (4569) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 28, 2015
On tap and a little fizzy so first I thought this was beer. Quite odd for a mead. Clear lighter than pale, like whiter cider in looks. Sweet almost mint candy aroma. No head. Interesting tart candy thang with a tad of metal. Mix that with mild tiny twist of slightly rotten fermented fruit. Very good stuff, I think it even has a wild beer feel to it. Yes, a better brew experience. Wow, hides the alky rather well.
