Bottle. Mostly clear golden color, no head. Spiced apple aroma, mild honey. Taste is mild for the ABV, a very nice balance between the acidity and the spice notes. Balanced and tasty.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Translucent straw colored body. Aroma of honey, light cinnamon stick and herbs. Flavor of fresh apples, honey, and light cinnamon. Not nearly as pronounced as I was hoping. Unfortunately, the cinnamon and clove seem muddled and lacking behind the basic cyser complex. Amped up with apples and honey.

Straight from the source. A huge thanks to Brad!!!
A: Pours a nice light golden color with a tinge of brown.
S: Nice with hints of fresh pressed cider, floral honey, light spice, and a touch of alcohol.
T: Wonderuful mild honey flavor with a wonderful dash of cinnamon. Hints of all spice, and a blast of oak in the backend. The cider does not overpower the honey. It adds great depth and cuts the sweets to provide a wonderful balance. A real enjoyable Cyser.
M: Rather full in body, great balance, a touch of dryness in the finish.
