Silvery emerald straw color. Tropical, floral aromas and flavors of ripe banana, tropical fruit salad, lychee and papaya, and peony with a soft, fruity medium body and a smooth, brisk finish that shows accents of yellow apple and pear and lime spritzed starfruit. A pleasant, easy drinking quaffer with a charming banana note.
