3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear yellow-gold pour with a small, fizzy head, that fades quickly but is sustained somewhat by high effervescence. Aroma is mostly pepper, but thereís some definite mango sweetness and a hint of earth. Flavor is a little fruitier, mango up front, then sweet, fruity honey, then nice peppercorn, toast, a little stone fruit and increasing mango presence toward the finish. Light to medium body, juicy slightly sweet throughout, with a light, but blanketing and slightly sharp carbonation. Good stuff overall, I like the flavorings, but it could use a little more honey character.

Ik vind er niks aan. Een mede is voor mij een honingdrank die verwarmend moet zijn en met de smaak van HONING. Dit is een droog, laf drankje zonder warmte en pit (waar is de peper van het etiket???)

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.

Bottle from Au Trappiste, Bern
Pale blond color. Light product, elegant, fruity, lightly sweet, floral, peppery, dryish in the final.
Iím not sure this should be called mead, but itís a good drink.

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.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear, straw appearance like a white wine. Smells like mango, jasmine flowers, black pepper, honey, apple, and a spice I canít 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
Wasnít 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
