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.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
From notes. Finally found the long-lost notebook from the 4 Elf Party at Dark Horse on December 13! So, that’s where this was found. Shared by a passer-by for a chance to hang around the campfire we’d built. Oh my god was this one something else. The pour was a clear darker yellow with a bright white ring of head that disappears quickly. The aroma is like I’m smelling an apple pie. There is a lot of cinnamon and caramelized apples. It’s like I just ordered some fried apples from Cracker Barrel. The flavor is even better. Behind all of the apples there is a wonderful graham cracker crust happening, with a touch of vanilla and some light brown sugar. The re is a bit of booze on the back end. The mouth feel is a little light. It’s not quite syrupy like I was expecting, but it’s just good. The aftertaste is lingeringly spicy apple, and slightly warming. I need to find more of this!

Bottle: Thanks, Ron. Clear straw-yellow body. No head, just a few bubbles that are gone in moments. Apple pie aroma. Sweet, sugar coated apple pie filling, cinnamon, warm graham cracker crust, & just a very small touch of booze. Sweet flavor, full of honey, sweet baked apples, cinnamon, toasted graham, a small touch of ginger, & a little bit of booziness lingering into the finish. Sweet, rich, heavy, but great.
