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...

MrBunn (2588) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 12, 2015
Bottle. Pours a very pale yellow with a lot of fizzy carbonation at first that dies down to nearly nothing in short order. Aromas are sweet (almost like pear juice) with a little hint of pepper. Flavor is sticky and sweet with a zing of carbonation and pepper on the tail end. I thought it was carbonation at first, but now I’m thinking it is pepper... Not really my thing I guess...
