Appearance: light yellow with brushes of fresh key lime and pineapple juice.
Nose: homemade canned pineapple, freshly shaved coconut, with wisps of honey essence in the back. Key lime, cantaloupe, and honeydew. Plump green grapes. Yellow banana skins. Homemade canned papaya juice. Bright.
Palate: clean. Sweet along edges and finishes dry atop the tongue with a touch of acidity in the middle. Sweet and sticky mélange of melon, grapes, and honey. Honey may be the stage but she isn’t the major player. Key lime ice. Bitterness of banana peel and grape skins along edges and back of swallow, melon skins too. Never overly sweet.
Final Thoughts: if there were ever a tiki mead this is it. Lovely, never cloying, tropical, and oh so delicious.
