4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle poured into a shaker. Ppurs a clear dark gold with lots of little bubbles. Aroma is mostly sweet and tart apples with a hint of toffee and a little vanilla. Taste goes back and forth between heavily sweet and heavily tart. Apples and apples with candi sugar, light vanilla, light oak and a little toffee. Thick and sticky texture with a finish that gets more boozy as it warms. Overall, really good. Ive never had an ice’d cider before but im really digging this style.

(bottle - corked & caged 750 ml) Clear light gold pour with a soapy white head. Sweet apple juice and dry Chardonnay notes in the nose. Sweeter than the Strawman with more of a candy sugar sweet apple taste. Slightly dry finish with a nice fizzy palate. It’s good, but I’ve never been a huge fan of sweet ciders.

Bottle. Poured pale color with a minimall head that diminished quickly with good legs. Medium to heavy sweet apple and vanilla wood aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Flavor of tart apple and sweet caramel with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Cider kind of night in Michigan and balanced well with my cigar.

Bottle @ home, shared by Jake. Thanks, brah. Slight carbonation to the golden orange pour. Smells kind of like cheap champagne at first. Yeasty and a bit alcoholic. Some apple sweetness, sugar, and lightly tart. Flavor is better. Sweet caramel, sugar, apple, and vanilla. Still, a bit of booze. Yeast, green apple skin, and a subtle tartness.

750 ml bottle to oversized snifter (shared with the Mrs.). Looks good; transparent golden orange with thin white lacing and steady carbonation. Smells solid; sweet and a little tart with notes of oak and caramel to balance out the apple backbone. Tastes like it smells with a bit of toffee too. Pleasant on the palate. Good cider!
