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 didnít 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.

Sampler at Grand Rapids Beer, Wine, and Food festival. Pours a light color. Aroma of Honey and Mango. Sweet flavor. Very smooth. This was my first experience with B. Nektar and also my first mead. Very much enjoyed this one and will seek it out to try again.

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.

This bottled Mead from a bottle shop poured a medium sized head of frothy large sized clear colored bubbles that were very quickly diminishing and left behind a very softly carbonated transparent weak yellow colored body and no lacing. . The semi-flat mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish. The mild flavor contained notes of sweet mild spice and herbal. Not one that I would likely drink again.

Bottle, donít remember where I got it from. Mostly clear light green/gold color, very bubbly. Surprisingly refreshing rather than sickeningly sweet. I get a little of the pepper on the back end but donít really necessarily get the mango in it. Just tastes like a generic fruit.

500 mL bottle. Pours a clear pale golden. Slightly sweet mild plasticky and honey aroma. White grape flavor with a bit of tropical fruit and a bit of plasticky flavor. Plastic diminishes as it warms, and it gets sweeter and more fruity, adding in an herbal note. I think I get a suggestion of the black pepper, but itís really just a sensation in my throat after the finish. Pretty tasty, though.
