ClubGonzo’s Pineapple Delight

Mead, 12% ABV.

ClubGonzo’s Pineapple Delight, mead batch 29.

Seen from above the Pineapple Delight looks a bit like a pineapple cut in half, right?

Tropical fruits are winners in beers, so why not in a mead?

The colour of this brew is deep golden, and the body is clear.

Strong aroma of honey and sweet, overripe pineapples, with a touch of acidity and fruity spiciness.

The flavour is also strong and it has the same notes found in the aroma. The overripeness is a bit pronounced and the sweetness is rather heavy, but the pineapple acidity prevents the brew from becoming cloying. A highly drinkable mead.

Conclusion: tasty sweet and sour. Maybe mix in some deep fried pork in the next batch?

  1. Another fun and unexpected experience in meadmaking: for more than a year, this tasted nothing more than a generic kind of fruitiness and was largely uninteresting, despite the massive amounts of both juice and fruit going into it. Then, like in the case of Plum Bliss, it started to taste like pineapple. Melomels do work in mysterious ways. Today, it tastes nice enough and proves that pineapples and honey do match. 😊
