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.

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.

Pours clear very pale green. Faint fruity aroma. You can really taste the black peppers. Interesting.. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tightslice (295) - Redwood City, California, USA - MAR 27, 2015
Bottle from World Market in Redwood City (Dated 05/14). Aroma is white wine and mango. Taste is sweet, fruity white wine with some dryness. Not getting much of the pepper. A bold effort but I was happier when it was over. Extra points for the B. S-mart / Evil Dead tie-in.

fiulijn (16003) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 25, 2015
Bottle from Au Trappiste, Bern
Pale blond color. Light product, elegant, fruity, lightly sweet, floral, peppery, dryish in the final.
I’m not sure this should be called mead, but it’s a good drink.

Alusmamuts (780) - LATVIA - MAR 24, 2015
Looks like white wine, no head. Fruity aroma. Fruity sweet cider taste, no carbonation. A bit bitter and hot spicy touch at the end. Refreshing, but it us difficult to notice that this is a beer.

Clear, straw appearance like a white wine. Smells like mango, jasmine flowers, black pepper, honey, apple, and a spice I can’t put my finger quite on, maybe basil or something. Tastes much the same, a bit of sweetness, a bit of tarntess and the black pepper fits in suprisingly well. Not much carbonation and kind of thin bodied Wasn’t sure how all of the flavors would work together but it seems like they pulled it off. The spice seems to help balance the sweetness

Bottle to stem. Bright clear straw with thin white film. A: apple, honey, tropical fruit. T: same, with black pepper coming through at the end. OK.

Aromas of black pepper, very floral, crisp apple. Clear greenish yellow. Pretty dry, peppery, honey and floral flavors. Light bodied, crisp.

Bov (10180) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - MAR 7, 2015
courtesy of fiulijn - pale straw yellow color, aroma of cider, mango and apples; moderate body and a long honeyish and fruity finish with a late and long lasting sharp peppery presence - a mead with different layers, fresh and pleasant

Cybercat (3796) - Georgia, USA - MAR 5, 2015
Pours pale, bubbly straw yellow. Sharp aroma has fruity and honey notes, inviting a taste. Flavor is definitely different and refreshing - honey that is not overly sweet, mango, a bit of sour apple. Texture has, well, I suppose average viscosity and a subtle but lasting fizz. After the mead has headed downstairs, your mouth is still a-buzzin’. Black pepper peeps out in the finish. I definitely should try some more meads - only problem is they do tend to be rather spendy.
