4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a pale goblin green. Aromas of honey and subtle mango...sweet and lightly tropical. Flavor is wonderful. Mild earthy honey and juicy mango. The black pepper is quite subtle (kick it up next batch) but can be picked up just a bit in the finish. On draft at Cigar City yielded a light zippy carbonation. I crushed 4 glasses. Tasty stuff for sure!

4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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...

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
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

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma of flowers, mango and citrus. Pale, clear with almost no head. Let’s of honey flavour. Light bodied, thin with a pretty long after taste of black pepper. This is a weirdly satisfying beer.

Bottle at Erzbierschof Monday Club. Very light yellow. Aroma of pepper, rose, jasmine, and lots of mango. Very harmonic and round. Quite powerful and full-bodied for such a low ABV. Impressive!

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Rated on 8-06-2015 (Bottle) The appearance is a very small white head, transparent body and fast rising carbonation. The aroma is sweet, mango, honey, earthy, and musty. The flavor is sweet, honey and earthy. The mouthfeel is light carbonation and this mead is light bodied. The taste of this mead does not suit my palate very well. A bit too sweet and not to my palate’s liking.
