Here in Michigan we are in the throws of fall. This includes apple picking, cider, etc. I had recetnly gotten a hard cider to enjoy and review. I did enjoy it, but was pondering my words. Then, I tried:Melonball- A:M.My socks were removed from my feet with vigor, perhaps in a knocking manner, and thrust across the room. I have to say, that it has rarely happened before.In executive summary, this is now my current favorite malt liquor beverage. I thought that I would never leave teh JOOSE. I had tried others, and nothing ever compared. I will give that Green Apple teh JOOSE is still a close number 2, but Melonball-A:M is a slight bit better.There is listed artifical flavor and certified color, but no mention of anything that might add lightning. There does not appear to be caffeine or Taurine. Thus, I would not recommend operating heavy machinary after imbibing this drink.Originally, I was just being a little crazy. The JOOSE selection at the particular location I was at was slim. So I got this. It, however, was a pleasent surprise. It was smooth. It was suble. It was also slightly pink. There was no harsh bight or after taste. I followed the Melonball-A:M by a Watermelon teh JOOSE, and the JOOSE was harsher on the pallet. It was more assertive and, slightly, less pleasant. Where the watermelon teh JOOSE tasted like I was drinking spiked watermelon juice (e.g. with middle of the road vodka), Melonball-A:M tasted like I was drinking liquidifed melonballs with ones favorite smooth spirit.The 12% was pretty strong. Though I had not eaten much that day, and the empty stomach may have contributed to the affects of the alcohol.In summary, I can recommend Melonball-A:M as a great drink. It may work well on hot summer days, but also works in crisp fall evenings.
