4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
750 mL bottle, room temperature... poured this into a wine glass and it is a pretty honey color, clear, thick... I gave it a swirl awhile ago and it’s still dripping down the sides of the glass. Aroma is dead on -- straight up apple pie. Just the faintest hint of alcohol, but not bad at all for 13%. Taste... again, wow. They really nailed the apple pie thing... sweet gooey apples, honey, cinnamon, it all comes together and it is exactly what it claims to be, apple pie in a glass. Would buy this again, would be an awesome treat for Thanksgiving dinner.

Pours golden. The aroma is full on pie spice, with cinnamon leading the way. Flavor mostly spice as well. Loads of cinnamon stick, complete with a mild burn. Light apple, and a hint of five spice. Finish has a blast of clove. Medium in body and smooth. Tasty but a bit overdone.

Pours a light yellow. Aroma of cinnamon, so much cinnamon with honey and apple. Taste is sweet apple with a ton of cinnamon. A bit too much cinnamon for me.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 3, 2014 Refrigerated 75 cl clear bottle, batch 10-12, with different label than what is shown. Pours clear rich golden with no head, lacing, or carbonation. Aroma is honey, medium body, and syrupy texture. Taste is apples, cinnamon, honey, and some alcohol. If the alcohol was completely covered this would be a home run.

Draft to taster at the meadery. Looks good; a still honey gold. Smells good too; just like the name suggests with a nicely balanced soft honey backbone. Tastes like it smells with a nice, smooth mouthfeel. A great example of the style.

This is by far my favorite from Brothers Drake. It has a wonderful taste of apples that finishes well. At 13%, it doesn’t have an overbearing alcohol taste. It is a very good after dinner drink.

Bottle shared late night RBWG. Pours clear gold. Rich apple sauce and hefty honey in the nose, light cinnamon essence. Big sweet flavor, tons of well spiced apple pie, thick honey. Full bodied with no carbonation. Warm finish, chewy, with lots more cinnamon and decadent apple pie. Delicious.

750 ml bottle from JStax. Enjoyed on Thanksgiving with my family so this is from notes and memory. Aroma was straight up apple pie with just a hit of boozy alcohol. Tasted like fresh, sugary sweet apple puree with all spice. The finish is where the honey showed up with a nice smooth, very slight boozy liqueur finish. Medium to thick body, a little syrupy feel to it. Great stuff. My entire family enjoyed it and they’re not beer or mead drinkers at all. Thanks Jeremy!
