Bottle @ RBBSG, 2014. Thanks 77ships! Orange colour. Very sweet aroma of apple pie, cinnamon, brown sugar and spices. Very complex and sweet in a positive way. Good as a sipper, not to drink a lot of this.

sebletitje (6624) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUL 6, 2014
Bouteille 37.5cl @ RBBSG III, courtesy of 77ships. Ambré, doré au verre. Arôme de pomme, tanin rétro agréable présentant de belles effluves épicées de cannelle. Palais est liquoreux, plein de pomme léger doux-sucré sur une pointe aigrelette avec un léger caramélisé de pelure de pomme et chaire. Le côté épicé hivernal est bien placé et vient balancer le tout avec ce petit ’twist’ de cannelle.

77ships (3681) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUL 6, 2014
375 ml. bottle sampled @ RBBSG III. Personal contribution. Obtained in a trade with tom10101. Clear dark amber. Smell & taste is very thick syrup de Liège, cinnamon, brown sugar, apple pie, vanilla, melted butter, very sweet in the best way possible, thick toffee, caramel, apple roll. Thick syrupy feel to it. Warming, astonishing. Phenomenally good stuff, pure liquid desert.

kevinsenn (1057) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 19, 2013
Bottle from winery. Pours clear amber. Aroma of pure apple pie. Taste is sweet cooked apples, with cinnamon, etc. In other words, as the label says, "apple pie in a glass". Acidic finish. Thick and sticky body. Very nice.

tom10101 (2700) - Quebec, CANADA - AUG 18, 2013
Bottle (375 ml). From TheJester, huge thanks! Clear amber/orange with no head and no lacing. Aroma is of cinnamon, apples, brown sugar and sweetness. Taste is moderately to heavily sweet (but not cloying and right on style) with cinnamon, apples, brown sugar and butter. Pleasant alcohol/spices warming. Full bodied. Flat carbonation. Thick and oily mouthfeel. Wow! This cider is rich and luscious! It taste exactly like an apple crisp. Delicious sipper!

Plovmand (6348) - Helsinge, DENMARK - AUG 24, 2012
Bottle at home. Thanks a bunch TheJester for this treat! It pours reddish amber leaving nice curtains in the glass. Huge sweet concentrated apples with light spicy notes. Berries and some ripe fruit. Super intense flavour of sweet apples, sweet ripe fruit, light peach, some spices and it has and long long sweet spicy finish. Extremely thick and oily texture. This is extremely good!! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - AUG 22, 2012
Had this at the Campground Brewdown. Pours a clear amber orange. Sweet apple skins and a faint spice. Soft toffee, apples and caramel. Slow burnt sugar and gentle cinnamon. Picks up pace and tanginess. Tart acid, apples skins and caramel. Beautiful stuff.

jredmond (5295) - Manhattan, New York, USA - AUG 20, 2012
Bottle shared at Kramer’s Campdown Brewdown 2012. Pours an amber body with no lacing. Aroma is incredible, and probably the best cider I’ve ever encountered - notes of vanilla spiced apple pie, fresh apple crisp, apple skins, cinnamon, and sugar. Mouthfeel is thick, indulgent and luscious with notes of warm apple cinnamon crisp, butter, vanilla, cinnamon, spice, and a light warming in the finish. Not only one of the best ciders out there, but probably one of the best beverages, hands down, through the ground.
