MeadMe (1284) - Riverview, Florida, USA - JAN 27, 2013
Pours a very pale yellow. Aromas are lightly floral with nice honey notes. Flavor is sweet and tropical. Wonderful honey. Tones with hints of mango and papaya. Not overly sweet but his is a sweet mead. Light on the tongue and drinkable. This is great stuff.

Bottle from TWM Sterling - pours clear orangish, tropical booze on the nose. Almost veers too far on the medicinal alcohol side, but mostly brings it back. Itís drinkable.

Chudwick (1986) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - SEP 30, 2013
75cl bottle - pours clear, pale straw and nothing else. Nose is honey and fruity toe jam. quite sweet. I drink mango/orange juice for breakfast just about morning and I cannot detect mango in this mead. OK overall.

JaBier (4807) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - FEB 25, 2013
Bottle. Clear yellow pour with no head and very minimal legs. Aroma of honey, bread and tropical fruit. Honey and bread flavor with lots of mango before a cookie-like finish.

patrick767 (3528) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - SEP 23, 2012
bottle - Pours clear golden and has an aroma thatís heavy on the mangoes with some honey evident too. The taste is extremely sweet and loaded with mango. The honey is definitely there but takes a back seat to the mango. Alcohol is notable, but mostly itís a fruity, syrupy sweet drink. Okay, but too sweet.

574deadzone (994) - North Central, Indiana, USA - SEP 10, 2012
Pale uncarbonated golden pour with little bits of cork (my bad). Some legs present. Nose is pretty nice, some honey, citrus fruit notes, almost some ginger, but fairly medicinal with alcohol. Weakly flowery, certainly the aromas arenít covering up the alcohol. Taste is fairly sweet, somewhat tart. Palate is somewhat thin, oily yet dry on the end with quite a bit of warmth on the way down. A strange twangy aftertaste persists. Is it from the mango? I donít know. Add a clear carbonated beverage for an easy to drink spritzer. Iíd rather have a cleaner more prominent honey tone with less of the other stuff. Ok.

mikesaum (596) - Newark, Ohio, USA - FEB 2, 2012
Pours very pale, looks like white wine, no legs with a swirl, just a quick ring. Aroma is nice with honey peach and mango. Flavor is booze, honey,, and honey, kind of a dry finish, abv is noticeable, thin body. This taste good but like others have said, not a good mead

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - JUL 24, 2010
A few ounces from a 750 mL bottle, rightfully belonging to my roommate. It pours an extremely pale straw color; a swirl leaves a ring at the top but quickly falling legs. The aroma is semi-sweet and very fruity with a very light honey and mango, orange, and strawberry notes. The flavor is surprisingly nice. Honey dominates, making me more comfortable in classifying this as a mead. There is a little bit of a harshness to the honey, something perhaps a little age would mellow out. The sweetness isnít overwhelming, though, perhaps cut by that harsh edge. The mango flavor comes mid-palate, obvious, but staying mostly in the background. There is an odd sour touch to the otherwise semi-sweet finish that I find very pleasant. This is easy to drink and is a decent fruit wine. However, I judge meads by their ability to retain the nuance of varietal honeys, and this one lacks in that department entirely. Good wine. Poor mead.

obguthr (3654) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - JUL 11, 2010
Mango and triple sec nose, vaporous. Very pale yellow, still. Alcohol very noticeable, distracting even. More orange than mango, vinous, but certainly fruity.

Palidor19 (2928) - Brandon, Florida, USA - JUL 15, 2009
this mead brings more of the mango flavor than the honey, the mango is dominate by a long shot. the rest of it falls behind, but the fruitiness is what gives it a hard punch.
