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. Defend your soul or join us...

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 15, 2013
Bottle from Sam’s Quik Shop. Pours clear pale straw gold with a light frizzante carbonation. Nose shows honey, light mango and pepper, with notes of young wood and tart wild apples. An odd but not bad herbal note. The parts come together in a unique whole. Taste starts sweet but ends quite dry, especially for the style.

Bleek en helder licht geel zonder kraag. aroma van honing, redelijk fruitig van de mango, en iets pittigs (’t zal de peper wezen). smaken zijn redelijk zoet, honing, frisse groene appels, licht zuurtje, medium body, glad en niet al te dik, lage co2 met zoetige afdronk. maar Hell Yes wat is dit een uniek en heerlijk smakend biertje zeg. Ik denk dat niet iedereen dit spul zal weten te waarderen, en velen zullen het te dun/licht/beperkt vinden, maar ik niet ! unieke ervaring, bij elke slok komt het pepertje en de mango binnen waarna de honing het overneemt, na enige tijd komt het pepertje weer terug, Heerlijk !!!!

Parents is a clear bright pale yellow. Aroma is a spicy pungent mango and grape. Flavor is like aroma is slightly sweet tart, with the Black pepper coming out and is very drinkable. Great body. Very nice stuff. The black pepper is an especially nice touch. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

northropfrye (2279) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - NOV 2, 2014
Light yellow body, transparent. Sweet fruity aroma with a touch of honey, a kind of tart kick as well. Taste is medium sweet, definitely mango and some tartness. The pepper really only comes in in the aftertaste in the back of the throat and is not really pronounced. Interesting mead but not too spectacular.
