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.

A cursory glance of my ratings will show that I am not the biggest fan or even rater of Mead, but this one is fantastic, with excellent hints of black pepper against a sweetness that is distinctly mango without being overbearing. I really love dried mango so this was perfectly up my alley and I wasn’t disappointed.

The aroma is citrus. Pours a carbonated light red. The taste is sweet. The body is light, the texture thin, the carbonation fizzy - way too fizzy, the finish short. Overall not impressed with the carbonation, took everything away from it.

Light clear yellow pour w/ no head. Aroma is mango and light pepper. Sweetness also. Taste is Wow! Mango and pepper, with the sweet base, go together so wonderfully. Very refreshing. So glad I can purchase these meads in my local.

Bottle 500ml @ yngwie
Pours almost clear as water with a few white bubbles. Aroma has notes of honey, sugar, candy and some fruits. Taste is medium to heavy sweet with a long mango and black pepper finish. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is flat to soft,

Bottle. A clear one, pale yellow in color, without carbonation. Lovely aroma with black pepper, mango, citrus hints and a faint honey touch. Some flowery touches, guess that’s the mango playing tricks. The flavor isn’t as peppery, but there’s some. Honey, flowers, mango and some citrus in the flavor. Quite dryish on the palate, with a little carbonation. Medium to full body. Lasting honeyish finish with mango and black pepper. Very tasteful and easy drinkable this one. Yummi. 140418

Clear yellow-gold pour with a small, fizzy head, that fades quickly but is sustained somewhat by high effervescence. Aroma is mostly pepper, but there’s 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.

[Bottle (500ml)] Pours a clear very pale gold with no head. Mild but pleasant aroma of apples and pepper along with honey and fruit. Flavour of honey first followed by mild pepper and some fruit -- simple but nice. Average bodied. Good and enjoyable.
