4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This was a really great cider. Super hazy amber pour with no head. Aromas of yeast and apples and some honey/maple hints. The apple flavor is upfront with the belgian yeast adding some nice doughy character to this. I donít get a lot of the maple syrup character in this but thatís ok because everything else about it is quality. Not too sweet and not too dry. Very respectable cider

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Whole Foods DC on P St- catching up on old ratings from Oct/Nov 2012 timeframe. So far, this is the only Crispin that Iíve liked. It was interesting with some complexity to its aroma, that didnít feel completely artificial or apple juicey to me.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, from the IGA in Sidney, MT. Hazy pale yellow pour with virtually no head. Nose is floral and fruity, along with the Belgian yeast. Crisp, reminds me of the dry non-alcoholic sparkling cider from New Years... Flavor has more of the apple cider flavor, along with the yeast. The intensity is sort of a sleeper; not overwhelming, but firm. Overall an enjoyable experience.

Not a big fan of this Cider. Would not get it again. Had high hopes when I poured it but it did not work for me.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle into a tulip. Pours cloudy bright yellow. No head, light carbonation. Sweet, spicy and lightly floral aroma. Taste is awesome. Lightly tart, a bit peppery, perfect level of yeastiness, fresh juicy apple. Finish is a balance of sweet and crisp. Incredibly drinkable and refreshing.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. 4/22/13. Pours a hazy golden with no head. Aroma is apples, Belgian yeast, caramel, banana, nutty, wine-like; smells like a candy apple. Taste is very sweet, some sour, vinous; apples, caramel, yeast. No lacing. Medium-low carbonation; seems appropriate. Mouth feel is slick, wet; refreshing. Very sweet; fast approaching cloying. The caramel imparted by the maple syrup is nice. The Trappist yeast also adds a nice element. Itís just so sweet. Drinkable, but so sweet...

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bottle. Pours a bright lemonade yellow with a little white fizz. Aroma of maple, soured apple, and yeast. Very odd aroma. Taste like sour apple baby food. Thick and rich. Has a bit if a boozy taste. Maple syrup comes through as it warms. Subtle at first and then you can really taste and smell it. Taste of other fresh fruits as well, pears and bananas. This reminds me of giving my son his first baby foods. Nice sweet finish. Very enjoyable on this hot night.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from perfect pours. Looks like a lemonís bath water with no head and little carbonation. Slight apple notes on the nose. Somewhat tart on the tongue. Doesnít have a ton of apple flavor. Eh!

I like the contributions of the sweet maple syrup here. I always forget to disperse the sentiment... Remember to invert before pouring!

Bomber to snifter (shared with the Mrs.). Looks solid; a transparent yellow with low carbonation and no real head or lacing. Smells and tastes solid; sweet AND dry with a nice, balanced maple influence thatís good on the palate. Good cider!
