Gold color. Tropical aromas of jamaican rum, tropical spices, toasted coconut, and caramelized banana with a round, crisp, effervescent, bitter medium body and a delightful, medium-length whole vanilla bean, water chestnuts, and raw green plantain finish. A tannic and bracing cider with an exotic and tropical nose.
