We took some reserve apple cider from our Bourbon Barrel Cyser and made this xtra limited batch. Fermented with fresh pressed apple cider, clover and wildflower honey. We fermented it dry, then sweetened with a little bit of wildflower and buckwheat honey, then aged it with some cinnamon and clove. The spices are subtle but present. The buckwheat honey adds a dark brown sugar-like character. We also threw in some American oak for good luck.

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.

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.
