The color is clear light golden straw, and bubbles are tiny. The nose is rich and yeasty, fresh-baked bread and buttered toast, with light delicate citrus (key limes and a hint of pink grapefruit) and lychee. The mousse is full but delicate. The fruit on the palate is key lime and a touch of sweet grapefruit. Florals were equally citrusy, orange blossoms from a distance. The finish lasted quite a while, the different tastes all coming together and lingering, all very light but lasting.
