COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Backwoods Cyser (’size-er’: a honey wine made with apples) was made with Michigan apple cider and a blend of Michigan star thistle, buckwheat and wildflower honeys. Once fermented, we placed the cyser into bourbon barrels and aged it to taste. The finished cyser is full bodied with smooth apple-honey character. Finishes with a touch of caramel, oak and bourbon.

clear, straw colored pour. butterscotch, bourbon, vanilla and granny smith apples all over the nose and mouth. add a touch of cake frosting in there as well...the flavor is more sweet than the nose...alcohol is certainly present, but doesnt detract from the quality of this excellent mead. fantastic

375 mL bottle from Oldsmar Tap House. Pours a medium-deep yellow with no head. Nose is honey, apple, bourbon, vanilla, and sugar/ sweetness. Flavor is similar- akin to the bourbon barrel mead, but this one has an apple quality to it. The apples play in the background of the vanilla/ bourbon and wood goodness. Interesting cyser; great addition to B. Nektar lineup. Medium bodied overall and strong enough to be a sipper.

UPDATED: JAN 23, 2011 Encore un hydromel qui s’ajoute a la longue liste des merveilles de chez B.Nektar Dorée couleur jus de pomme. Arôme est vraiment formidable mélangeant le tonneau de bourbon avec la douceur de la pomme caramélisée. Le tout laisse s’échapper des essences de miel / sarrasin qui est suivi de ce côté pelure de pommes et aspect terreux/organique du miel. En bouche, le bourbon est long et donne à cet hydromel une autre dimension alternant à la fois la vanille du tonneau, caramel et une toute fine amertume venant du cidre de pomme. Quant au miel, on peut y noter ce côté fleurs des champs et chardon qui reste bien doux et sucré. Une fois à bonne température, ce mélange de bourbon, vaille, pomme et caramel devient divin.

Another SeaBass share. Thanks!! A: Pours a nice pale yellow hue, nice cling to the glass. S: Honey sweetness, with notes of oak, bourbon and slight vanilla. The apple is there, but a boozy burn stands above all. T: Apple front and center, like stewed apples with a nice honey sweetness to back it. The barrel while not as big as the aroma plays a big role. Old worn oak, with rich Bourbon notes. M: Medium in body, sweet with enough bourbon backing to make this one to sit down with and enjoy.

Bottle thanks to Sarah! Poured a clear pale gold with no head but some carbonation visible. Aroma was sweet with honey and had notes of tart dry apples with a hint of bourbon. Flavor began sweet with honey but quickly transferred to dry tart apples for a quite dry finish. Not much bourbon on the tongue.
