Hab nincs, gyönyörű mézszín. Illata mézes, gyümölcsös, borsos. Íze mézes, borsos, édeskés gyümölcs ízzel. A bors miatt kicsit hajaz a gyömbérre. Közepesen testes és szénsavas, picit érezni az alkoholt.

Picked up at Julio’s, shared with JLindros. Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice crystal clear super pale. Aromas of huge mangoes, both fresh and gummy. Great peppercorns as well. Taste is similar to the nose, excellent mango flavour and light peppercorn, wish it was a bit more peppercorn forward. Loads upon loads of mango! Mouth is a bit thin.

bottle at home. Pours clear light golden, no head, but a champagne alike fine bubble carbonation. Pepper definitely present. Papaya and apricot, some mango as well. Light sweet body, like an Asti, with an imminent attack of the black pepper, which I wasn’t particularly found of... Taste is sweet white wine grapes, white pepper...

Medium light Floral smell with light pepper... very clear appearance... Taste is bolder/more pronounced than it looks and smells...pepper and flowers very good...not too sweet like other meads...perfect actually...so smooth...the only area it is deficient is appearance because it is so clear...nothing against it though...amazing
