This is one of my favorite west coast ciders - It runs a dark gold with a crisp taste of apples, hint of nuts, vanilla, a little caramel, and more. Itís a bit bourbon compared to other ciders. Definitely a winning cider :)

Tap at Beer Junction. I reeeeeally like this. The barrel lends a depth and character that the cider desperately needed. Itís still crisp. Still vibrant. But it has a vanilla and musty oak that counter the apples brilliantly, almost adding a single-malt scotch flavor. Bourbon-aged ciders are quickly becoming some of my favorite beverages, and this one is really good.

Great cider here, the balance in this beast is dead on.. Getting lots of red apple, red apple skin, and wood barrel .. Mild bourbon .. A delightful cider. .. Why yes, I do enjoy the company of apples

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled at Finnriver, pours a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out light smoke, horse blanket and apples. Flavour brings out smokey bourbon barrels, apples and medium sweetness. Very complex, earthy and barnyard-y. Excellent.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle pours a clear, dark gold with a ring of white head. Nose has apples (obviously), lots of over ripe - near rotting - apple cores, some caramel too, a little vanilla, some poached pear as well, hints of carrot cake too. Flavor is super smooth, mild vanilla, mild white grape, a little spice, a little caramel and apple juice. Super smooth finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Another bottle that my wife brought back from the cidery.
IPA-colored yellow orange pour with no head. Starchy apples and a bit of shellac drives the nose, less bourbon character than I expected. Some of the vanilla becomes apparent in the flavor, a bit of bourbon. Modestly sweet, quite easy to drink, yet with that mild barrel character it stands out from just about every other cider Iíve had in my rather limited cider tasting experience.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle. Pours crystal clear golden with a very small fizzy white head that dissipates quickly with no lacing. Aroma is green apples and mushrooms, some bourbon. Flavor is tart apples, mushrooms, Brett, a bit of oaky bourbon, more mushrooms. Quite funky and light tart. Lightish body, effervescent carbonation. I despise mushrooms, and I especially hate when a beer or cider gets infected with mushrooms. Fail.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at winery, 6.5% ABV
Golden color with large bottles. Very nice aroma: apples, hazelnuts, almost biscuity. Off dry mouthfeel with delicate apple flavor and a soft feeling from the barrel. Mild acidity.
