The Saint indeed! Pours deep gold with a slight head, aroma is sweet apple and honey. Tastes of balanced sweet and tart fresh apple, with some complex maple syrup and Belgian yeast flavors (fruity esters). This is really good stuff, has the right balance of flavors, highly recommended.

Bottle at PIB 2015, pours a murky orange with a tiny head. Aroma is very yeasty, with dry apples and dirty yeast. Flavour brings out Belgian yeast, candied sugar, and medium sweet apples. As bad as it looks, it’s balanced well and tastes great. Really good.

Pours a murky lemonade color with a thin white head that disappears quickly. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of apples and yeast. Medium-bodied with flavors of mildly tart apples, herbal yeast and sweet maple. The finish is sweet and fruity with an apple cider aftertaste. Decent overall.

much too sweet for my palate. very interesting take on a traditional cider, but the maple makes it over the top for me.

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

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."

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
