Bottle shared at RBSG. The beer is a clear copper with a white head. The aroma has apple pie, nutmeg, vanilla, cinnamon, sweet apple pie taste. Dry finish, but mostly sweet. Not much carbonation. Sticky mouthfeel.

Thank you! 750 ml. bottle sampled @ Ganzerik. Rich cider with lots of sweet apple nots but real sweet apples & not some sugary affair. Sweetness is cut with light funk. Very nice. Hazy golden. Nose is sweet red apples, real apple sweetness, light red apple skins. Taste is light funk that cuts the sweetness, faint candy sweet red apples, light red apple skins. Bit hazy body. Very nice.

Bottle (75 cl) from Systembolaget. Clear deep golden with a short fizzy white head. Complex aroma with yellow mature apples, some wood, butterscotch, and smokey horse-stable notes. Nice sparkling mouthfeel, dry and perfectly balanced with a light lingering bitterness.

pale yellow. pretty bottle. aroma is okay, muted apple juice. tastes bottle conditioned. Very musty, warming, boozy and sweetness is very muted. I’m impressed by the similarities to a fine wine. great work.

RBSG2016. Sweet ice cider arom, smells so yummy, makes my mouth water thinking about it. Pale yellow. First taste I think this is something between an ice cider and a good real cider. Oh, so nice. How could this not be an ice cider? It’s so refined. Overall good apple experience. Just plain good stuff. Refreshing compared to all those uncivilized american wannah bee ciders out there. Big thanks to the rateberian who brought this one. Yes, a simple reliable really good cider experience.
