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.

Bottle shared by Radarsock. Thanks Andrew! Pours copper and still. No noticible legs. Aroma is cinnamon, vanilla, graham cracker. Taste is reminiscent of apple pie, with cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, honey and cooked Cortland apples. A little heavy on the apple pie spice. Could use a vanilla ice cream mead to go with it.

$32.25 for the 750ml bottle purchased from the source. Drank with family over dinner and shit-shooting. To undersized tasting snifter, it pours a honeycome potato skins-tinted web color orange. A few quickly diminishing bubbles shown on top. Aromas of ground cinnamon, vanilla beans, pear meat, yams, apple sauce, caramel, blue agave syrup, and Concord grapes. Tastes the same with the addition of green cardamom, denim jeans, and pineapple juice. Goddamn is this stuff great.

Cinnamon and ginger nose. Pale golden. Honey, ginger, cinnamon, and apple in that order. Medium body, alcohol appropriate. Addictive. I could easily drink this until I couldn’t see straight.

jackl (4645) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - AUG 30, 2014
Bottle thanks to Johnnie Nepal! Deep gold pour with absolutely no head. Nose of good ol’ american pie. Cinnamon, pepper, brown sugar. Taste is pretty similar. Quite spicy and sweet. Honeyed apple and accents of cinnamon. Medium body, oily and smooth. Nice.

MeadMe (1309) - Riverview, Florida, USA - JUN 24, 2014
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.

jcartamdg (2001) - Spring Hill, Florida, USA - JUN 21, 2014
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.

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.
