COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This golden, burnt amber cegape is made from both old and new apple varieties grown locally in the Annapolis Valley. This wine displays complex notes of baked apple, apricot and caramel, with a long, sweet finish of preserves.

Bottle. Pours an orange-brown body with no head. Sweet sugary apples in the aroma. The flavour is a bit simple sweet and nears the cloying plateau. Soft body with a touch of apple tartness. Unfortunately I didn’t care so much for this like the others.

Item #9 at June 2006 Toronto cider/mead -fest - bottle from jerc. Poured clear amber. Aroma of apple, slightly vinous, not too sweet. Taste of apple, tart, a bit boozy with quite a bit of dry white wine (soave) - very tangy. Mouthfeel was alcoholic, sweet, flat, pretty thickly syrupy - very nice, excellent balance between sweet and tart, good mouthfeel; perhaps a tad strong with the alcohol.

Thanks for sharing this bottle Jer, at Doug’s, at our cider/mead tasting. Mild disappointing aroma. Strong sweet taste, a little tart. Alcohol burns more than complements. Golden body, still. Not too bad, but didn’t stand out like I thought it might. Nice, but too sweet.

The last bottle in the store when I picked it up in Halifax, this one made it to Ontario for consumption. Dark golden body coats the glass nicely (3+). Sweet caramel notes in a pleasant apple aroma. Flavour is quite sweet with just enoough tart acidity to balance it out a bit. Full bodied syrupy palate is pleasant on the tongue.

Still, fiery golden amber colour. Sweet and lightly sour apple aroma with cinnamon and nutmeg spicy notes, plus light alcohol. Sugary sweet and tart apple and honey flavours with background spices. Brown sugar and tart apple finish. Full bodied, smooth and juicy mouthfeel.

Hazy amber colour. Still. Straightforward brown sugar and apple skin notes. Very sweet, almost like ice cider, though certainly not that complex. Soft and rounded, with light caramel accents. Decent dessert cider.
