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.

fidelis83 (2437) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - APR 6, 2014
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.

Pours clear golden with a white head. The aroma has mango, sweetness, spice and a brightness. The taste is bright, floral, honeysuckle filled and delightful. It’s very refreshing and has light sharpness. Delicious Mead.

14-05-17 // draft at Alus Celle, Riga. Clear golden mead, no head. I really dont know yet how do properly describe a mead, but this one was absolutely stunning. Loads of honey sweetness, some fruitiness, little spice. I need more.

mariuspoenari (2692) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 27, 2017
Sampled at Brody’s. Clear watery light yellow, flat. Notes of honey, floral, light citrus, mango, papaya or some other tropical fruit, sweet raspberries and with a very soft pepper spiciness, barely perceptible at first. Very lightly carbonated. Damn good.

Svartvit (574) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 9, 2017
Bottle at home. Pours a clear very pale yellow/golden with no head. Flowery honey, light soap, mango, cider-like apple qualities. Bit of peppery kick in the taste that slowly builds up. This drinks almost like a sweet white wine or cider with the pepper adding a nice twist to the whole thing. Medium sweet, light bitter and pepper. Medium body, low carbonation.

500 ml bottle, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 6%. Extremely pale yellow colour, very moderate carbonation, small and shortlived white head.Aroma of honey, cider, mango and flowers. Ciderish mouthfeel, not overly sweet, notes of honey, apples, mango and black pepper. A nice but moderate pepper burn in the aftertaste. Not bad at all.

At a festival. Clear color. some carbonation. Much more honey and yeast character than the previous beverage. medium sweet but I do not taste mango or black pepper, but there is fruit I cannot specifically identify. I like the carbonation on the palate.
