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...

HonusWagner (2226) - Florida, USA - MAY 31, 2013
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.

rosenbergh (11809) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 14, 2017
500 ml bottle at the Koht/Moonshine Bar, Tallinn, Estonia. Thanks FatPhil! Sweet fruity and slightly herbal aroma with sugary sweetness. Sweetness is dominating this. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

FatPhil (17080) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 14, 2017
500ml bottle (Koht, Tallinn) (4:2:4:2:7=1.9)
Smells like dirty laundry, or at least laundry detergent, clothes clearly worn by a hooker, plenty of cheap perfume here, probably a hooker that was murdered a decade ago, as it's quite mildewey. Sweet sugary fruity taste, mouldy. Flat slick palate. Pale. Finish just has a bit of peppery heat. Useless brew, and for 14e a fucking insult.

Marduk (8407) - Reval, ESTONIA - OCT 14, 2017
500ml bottle (thanks FatPhil). Clear deep yellow color. No head. Honey, sweet, herbal, rosemary, burnt rubber in aroma. Sweet, herbal, menthol, rosemaryvand rubber in taste. Sweet and confusing aftertaste. Why? Nope!

CanIHave4Beers (4227) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - OCT 5, 2017
On Draught
Pours almost still with no head and a few tiny bubbles rising up the glass.

The aroma is honey, mango, light pepper, and welp... Halloween vampire wax teeth, the great scourge of American Mead.

The flavor keeps the wax fangs at bay while being very focused on honey & mango sweetness with a bit of subtle pepper to bring some balance to things.
It's classic delicious b. nektar keeping their promises & holding no punches.

sjogro (4753) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 30, 2017
Tap at Brody’s. Very pale golden with no head. Sweet honey, white wine, mango and pepper. Big sweet, light bitter and some spiciness. Medium body and soft carbonation.

3.9
vyvvy (6736) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 1, 2017
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.

Maracuja05 (1776) - Mainz, GERMANY - JUN 1, 2017
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.
