COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Muse is the newest addition to our Cider House Collection. Inspired by the festive nature of slightly sweet Demi-Sec champagnes and sparkling wines, the Muse is bubbly and effervescent. It is made from traditional culinary and bittersweet apples and aged on French oak. The Muse is sweet up front with a juicy apple aroma and bright acidity, and slightly drying on the finish with a lingering sweet apple note. The French oak adds a subtle wood impression, imparting notes of cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and hints of vanilla.

sulawang (723) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 22, 2015
Visual: Pours clear deep golden yellow with a small head, continually re-emerging fizzy head, the most activity I’ve ever seen in a cider. A wonderous sight. Nose: lightly acidic, sweet & sour red apple juice. (lvl-9)-pungency Attack: concentrated sugars and flavours Mid-palate: juicy-tingly light fizzy mouthfeel, clean (lvl-5)-sweetness sugars, medium dissipating sour-tangy, (MAIN) apple wine, baked red & green apple, yeasty, Finish: alcohol hit, lingering sour acidity, thickened saliva, fruity finish. Summary: It packs the density and body of an icewine yet offers a refreshing effervescent texture and mouthfeel. Extremely sippable and approachable. One of the best quality cider I’ve had to date. The last good one I had was Temptation Frizzante - The View back in Oct, 2012.

Pours gold into a shaker. White head recedes to nothing. Apple aromas. Sweet apple and cinnamon front to back turning dry in the lasting finish.

Capa (2307) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - APR 13, 2015
Yellow with a fizzy head. Aroma is intense tart green apple, almost like a sour apple candy but less sweet and more tart. Flavor is similar with a bit of light vanilla and close. Lightly sweet dry finish. Full flavored and quite good. Stron carbonation. Very good.

fiulijn (16428) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 3, 2015
Tasting at Matt’s
Light amber color, hazy, sparse bubbles head. The aroma and flavor of sweet apple juice is dominating; moderately sweet; light vanilla and cake notes; not the most complex cider, but still a very pleasant one.
