At ĘppelTreow’s tasting barn. Apple cider in color with no head. Aroma is sweet and bready with pear and spices. Taste is sweet with pears, mild spices and a bit of burn on the finish.

BMan1113VR (7867) - Los Angeles, California, USA - SEP 21, 2011
375ml Bottle listed at 17% (long time want list) thanks to SecretSanta. Bottling listed as "2009.82.1". Pours with a completely clear, golden yellow hue. Perfectly flat with strong, laser etched legs that take a very long time to bead and fall. Aromas of alcohol, oak, caramel. Nearly a melanoidin like richness. Some fragrant pears, a bit of spice. Some fusel as well. Rich, baked bready, some esters. A light grassyness as well. Honey and caramelized ginger. The alcohol heat off the nose is the one detraction. Flavors are huge. Quite viscous, spiced, earthy and a bit waxy. Ripe melon, alcohol. Oak. A decently strong bitter tannin combats the heat, acidity and alcohol nicely. A calvados like fruity alcohol punch up front (that also finishes, dry, oaky, tannic and lightly musty like the distillate). Sweet over the mid palate, but the the fusel bats it down and keeps it from being cloying. This is quite hot. A bit fragrant towards the finish. Some fresh southern biscuits and honey as it warms with a light spice and some eucalyptus. Viscous, full bodied. Still. Warming, velvety. Good, and very different than a lot of apple products of similar weight.

Skyview (5242) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - OCT 12, 2008
Sampled at the winery near Burlington, Wisconsin. Pours a clear and syrupy chardonnay color cider with a clean disk top and some heavy alcohol tears. Aroma of some strong floral scents, alcohol, pears, a touch of cantaloupe, and some creme tartar. Taste is full bodied, a little on the syrupy side with a high alcohol character, semi-sweet and dry pears and a little mellon. Finish continues the high alcohol presence with a nice floral and pear aftertaste. A little heavy on the alcohol that I am used to but definitely a strong dessert cider.

375mL bottle, Bottling 2005.43 (March 12th, perhaps?). Clear amber with no head--completely still. Took about 20 seconds for the legs to finally make it down to the liquid below. Even though there’s no apple in here, I can still smell it. Also plenty of sweet pears as well, and fruit blossoms. Despite smelling pretty darn sweet, there is some alcohol in the background that dries out the aroma a little bit. Plenty of alcohol burn in this one, and I was right--the alcohol does help this finish almost semi-dry. Backing up a bit, this is pretty intensely sweet with more pears and apples--not really the fruit blossoms any more. The alcohol seems a bit strong and the sweetness is a little too much as well. Full body--though not quite as syrupy as I would’ve thought. This started out very well, but the flavor was a bit of a disappointment.
