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.

Pours a dark golden. Very effervescent. Aromas of Apple juice concentrate and some oak. Not getting a lot of spice. Nice sweet Apple flavour with a bit of tartness and a nice oaky finish. Good stuff.

Light clear body lots of carbonation bubbles almost champagne like. Sweet apple aroma. Taste has a nice tart element in addition to lots of apple sweetness and a lively palate. Nice active vibrant cidre.

The Muse is very similar to the Ice Man. It’s almost as sweet but runs very similar to a champagne being the fizziest of ciders I’ve tried. The aroma of it is very flowery :)

troyc (2862) - Illinois, USA - FEB 13, 2015
[Bottle] Sampled at Cider Summit Chicago 2015. Bright golden color with a small but dense cap of white head on top. Aromas of baked apples, oak and vanilla. Flavors include cinnamon, clove, oak, vanilla, green apples and vinous notes. Very nicely balanced. Lively carbonation. One of the more enjoyable ciders I sampled.

mcberko (8010) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 28, 2015
750mL bottle, pours a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma is complex, with notes of sweet apples, champagne notes, and light caramelized sugar. Flavour is quite sweet, with caramelized sweet apples, champagne notes, and a woody dry finish. Quite highly carbonated, but done very nicely. Not the most complex and it does get quite a bit sweet on the finish, but it is a pleasure to drink. Very nice.

chucklemation (646) - Pontiac, Michigan, USA - JAN 27, 2015
Pours a golden yellow with a quickly dissipating white head. Aroma is sweet Apple. Flavor is the same, with a crisp, effervescent body feel. Tastes very good, but does leave a bad feeling, like it’s too sweet, in the back of the mouth.
