ClubGonzo’s Pina Meada

Mead, 12.4% ABV.

ClubGonzo’s Pina Meada, mead batch 20.

Liquid gold.

Allright, a piña colada mead! That sounds… interesting!

It pours a nice-looking, clear, deep golden body.

The aroma is strong and initially I don’t pick up much else than the regular honey. After a while, though, subtle notes of coconut and spicy pineapple start to emerge.

The coconut is much more present in the flavour, it has almost the same intensity as the honey. The pineapple is in the background, together with a touch of rum. This is a quite heavy sweet brew, but the pineapple brings a light and balancing acidity.

Conclusion: a fun mix!

  1. Yes, fun is the word! 😄 I was pretty happy with how this one turned out, considering the unorthodox ingredients and the fact that I was aiming for the taste profile of an internationally reknown cocktail. Interestingly, it has (apparently) stayed in a recognizable shape even 4 years after its inception. I for one would not have imagined! 😛
