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...

Awesome mead right here. Tropical fruits and a bit of spice and not too much booze.

mariuspoenari (2555) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 27, 2017
Sampled at Brodys. 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 (512) - 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.

Sigmund (7315) - Tau, NORWAY - FEB 26, 2017
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.

JK (6061) - 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 (926) - 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 (4584) - 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?
