3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
8 oz pour from room temperature 22oz bottle into stemmed wine glass. Hazy and completely opaque. Light yellow-orange. Mild carbonation. About what I?d expect from a nice cider. Aroma is very light. Syrup and apples. Mouthfeel is great. Surprisingly creamy. Crisp. Taste is great. Like a good sweet white wine. Strong tart apple taste of course. A little farmyard yeasty taste (but in a pleasant way). Very moderate sweetness. A nice lingering tartness left after every drink. Alcohol is very well hidden. A very good cider.

Color is amber-yellow. Virtually no head. Cloudy appearance. Low carbonation. The smell is very clean and sweet - fresh apples and maple syrup. Tastes of very fresh apples and maple syrup w/ a hint of citrus. Very clean, fresh, sweet flavor. I can hardly notice the alcohol in it. Smooth and easy to drink. An A hard apple cider

Poured a hazy yellow to light gold colour with no head. Aroma of the titular apple, yeast, and maple. Flavor was of sweet apple, maple and belgian yeast, possibly some other tart fruit. Lightly carbonated and medium bodied with a crisp tart finish.

Bomber. A hazy gold color with some visible carbonation. Aroma of apples, honey, banana, and just a hint of maple syrup. Both sweet and tart apple flavors. Some other fruits such as pear make an appearance. Somewhat crisp like a dry white wine.

"nice cider here. we started with the honey crisp, which was nice n simple, with nice being the key word. the yeastiness and slight maple syrup sweetness added to the flavor, body and complexity while still showcasing the slightly tart apples. well done. looks like a weak wit beer though."

Unclear pale straw pour. Aroma has some apple, light yeast. Flavor is similar. Not overly sweet thankfully. Not particularly distinctive or character-full. This didn’t do much for me.

Bottle from Wegmans. Cloudy golden, glowing, effervescent. Dry apple nose, leaves, touch of lemon. Complex flavor, ripe apples, nice tartness, some minerals, a touch of maple syrup, yeasty spices coming from the Trappist yeast. Rich but not overly sweet. Nice tang. Good body. Nice stuff.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours to a murky ripe pear and mustard colored body with no head. The murkiness looks like unfiltered apple cider but kind of unappealing in this format. The aroma is very interesting. Sweet apple cider with some white wine notes. Like a Viognier. The flavor is dry and winey. Also like a white wine. Viognier and sweet simple syrup. But, in a good way. Semi-dry wine essentially.

Code looks like it reads 14012, but I don’t think it’s 1.5 years old, who knows though.
Appearance: Hazy as heck lemonade colored body with no head at all a second after the pour.
Aroma: Very slightly tart apples along with a slight sweetness. Very refreshing smelling with a hint of syrup sweetness.
Taste: Hints of everything to make one cohesive drink. I get crisp semi-sweet apples, hints of maple syrup and a touch of banana on the finish. Very nicely balanced and refreshing.
Palate: Crisp and refreshing.
Overall: This is a nicely crafted hybrid cider with good qualities from all ingredients used. I could definitely throw back a few of these if it were in a six pack. Please do so Crispin.
