Pour is clear reddish with no head, and no carbonation. Aroma brings notes of green apple, caramel, toffee, some sweet sugary notes. Taste is a mix of caramel apple notes, hints of tart apples as well, hints of sweet caramel, finishes with a hint of some slight spice. Fairly nice, sweet for sure.

2006. Bottle. Gift from Sarah. Thank you! I feel bad that this one struggled. The wax was crumbly and when I went to twist off the cork, it snapped of at the neck. The remaining cork was dusty and bone dry and had a weird residue on the bottom. Aromas immediately revealed significant oxidation. The flavors less so, but still a bit mangled. This does have some incredibly fresh sweet cider flavors. The alcohols and by-products are a bit feral and earthy, but the base cider flavor is fantastic.

Very hazy pour with a burnished bronze colour. The nose is soft and chewy. A bit of sweet dried fruit. Peach and pears in addition to the requisite baked apple. There is also a complex sort of maple-like aroma. Sweet and a little bit of soft leathery character. Rich and chewy. It’s pretty tasty.

Thanks to gunhaver for sharing this one at the So Long Sea Bass Tasting. Vintage 2005? Pours a still dark yellow-brown. Nose is tart apples, some earthy spice, and concentrated sweetness. Flavor is similar- a sweet, concentrated apple cider that has a hint of spice with the deep, sweet apple flavor. Thick mouthfeel and enjoyable.

Bottle @ Seabass going away party, Jan15th ’11 courtesy of gunhaver De couleur léger brunâtre pas de mousse juste quelques bulles qui percent la surface. Arôme est fort en pomme et le tout reste superbement sucrée, on ne ressent pas trop de cette aigreur acidifiée de certaines pommes. Au palais la pomme est complexe, sucrée (brun) épaisse, impression de jus concentré avec beaucoup de sucre de pomme allant limite vers le caramélisé. Reste un poil en dessous des cidres canadiens.

2002 vintage. Pours a muddy hazy honey orange with ok legs. Aroma is sweet mple syrup, oxidation, some sherry, light apple cider, baked apple pie, spices, sweet brown sugar, and slight salty oxidation as well. Flavor is green apple, muddy, dirt, earth, apple pie, apple juice, sweet honey mead, acetaldehyde notes, leather earth and alcohol in the end. A bit messy, old and oxidized at this point.
