4.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours a slightly golden pink color. Light apple aroma up front, floral honey right behind. Flavor is similar, with the apple qualities leading the charge, honey with the middle section and a slightly tart cherry component on the finish. The light carbonation puts this one over the top, in a very good way.

4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle, Seattle. Thanks to Chris! Sweet, sour in the back. Doesn’t smell like much. Feels like honey. Unidentified crisp flavor - cranberry?

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle in Seattle. Nice surprise from Chris in his monster box from a little while back, a nice thing to share with Julie (aka theporpoise). Clear, pale rose, no head. Sweet honey on the nose, a little tart red fruit. Natural sweetness, clean apple. Honey is a welcome note, rounds out the flavor and smoothes out the body. Clean, very tasty, just a hint of tart cherry. Solid.

Bottle. Orange-pink, cloudy, light bubbles but nearly flat. Funky cider nose, quite English, apples, cherries, and a bit of barnyard. Wonderful cherry flavor, honey, apples, lightly spicy, stones. Prickly, tangy finish. Great stuff.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml bottle from Badger Spirits in Beloit, WI, sampled out of the fridge in a Konig Pils glass - pours lightly fizzy with a touch of immediately-dying foam, thick bubbles in suspension in the salmon-gold body...light oaky dry-tart apple aroma, a hint of smokiness or cigarette ash perhaps, pleasant but not particularly strong...body is much sweeter than the aroma might suggest, sweet all the way through with a honey syrupiness around the middle, some tartness developing then and going on towards the finish, but never really eclipsing the very juicy-sweet principal character...body is quite full, very light carbonation. I don’t find the cherry notes as strong as some other raters have, though they are present especially on the end. Pretty enjoyable, though I think it becomes a bit too sticky as it warms.

Bottle from Erzbierschof Zurich. Lots of honey and cherry indeed, very little cider remaining. Tasty, fruity, sweet, intense. Heavy and strong, almost a sipper. Very low carbonation, but it’s not lacking at all. An impressive draught!
