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 didnt 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 Sams 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.

JK (5972) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - FEB 20, 2017
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.

gephross100 (673) - Bellaire, Texas, USA - FEB 4, 2017
500ml bottle. Pours crystal clear straw color with no head. Mango nectar, fresh ground pepper, and medicinal nose. Light mouthfeel, medium sweetness. Nice fizzy carbonation that helps lighten this cyser. I love the spice and fruit balance. This is an excellent mead for a pairing with pan roasted pork chops.

SinH4 (4054) - Garching b. Mnchen, GERMANY - JAN 25, 2017
Bottle. Clear yellow-colden color with small soda head that goes down quickly. Visible sparkly carbonation. Aroma is roses, pepper, mango and apples, with a delicate honey note. Taste is apples and mango, with a pepper flavour (but not really the spiciness), again a delicate honey flavour, and an amazingly refreshing palate due to the slightly fizzy carbonation. Thirst-quenching, with enough complexity and very tasty. It is sweet, but not overpowering, the pepper and the carbonation balance it out and keep it refreshing. A very impressive "light and sparkly" Mead (although it tastes more like a fruited & peppered Cyser), this one would be a perfect summer drink. The only reason this cracks the 4 is the appearance, but what do you expect from a light sparkling mead?

Draft at Bru Craft. Crystal clear gold pour. No head. Very sweet but has some strong spicy drying tannins to take things to any interesting place. Mango honeycomb. Peppercorn finish. Notes of dandelion, satsuma and ginger. Intense.

Backlog, ocena przepisana z untappd, w ramach uzupełniania profilu na ratebeer. Fajne. Słodkie, ale w umiarkowany sposb, owocowe, kwiatowe. Pieprzu w nim nie znajduję.
