Bright golden yellow color. Aromas of honeycomb, kumquat, wildflowers, lavender fields, jasmine green tea, and lemongrass with a vibrant, fruity light-to-medium body and a smooth, elegant, long tropical fruit, spiced orange tea, and bay leaf finish. A fruity, joyous sparkling mead with complex notes of flowers, citrus and spices.
