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.

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.

JoeMcPhee (8216) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 18, 2006
I’ve had this many times, but never got around to rating it until now. 375 ml bottle. Deep golden colour. Aroma is sweet and intense showing baked apple pie, light acidity in back, brown sugar and even some breadiness. Chewy sweet texture, light alcohol and a tingly spiciness in back. Well balanced desert cider.

jercraigs (7348) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 18, 2006
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.

HogTownHarry (5984) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JUN 18, 2006
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.

blankboy (5805) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 5, 2009
Bottle (375ml) shared with garthicus, jerc & mabel -- c/o j&m. Pours an oily-looking, deep clear golden-orange with no head -- it looks great! Sweet and tart aroma of apples. Flavour is sweet and tastes of tart apples, of course, along with some alcohol and some hints of dry white wine and spices. Oily mouthfeel. Very good stuff, I really enjoyed it.

[2103-20090419] 375mL bottle. Sweet apple sugars and thick syrup aroma. Clear, amber orange body with no head. Sweet fresh cold apple flavour. Medium body. Well-integrated, very tasty, and nicely hidden alcohol.

Boutip (4509) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 22, 2011
Bottle: Poured a deep gold color cider with aroma of sweet apple notes. Taste is dominated by sweet apple pie with limited complexity, i.e. no apple pie notes and sugar note are pretty straightforward. Still very enjoyable though maybe not as complex as I would like it to be.

CapFlu (4370) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 4, 2008
(375ml bottle) Sampled at Ciderwinder 5 in Victoria. Obtained from OKBeer. Great deep burnt orange colour. Tart and sweet nose. Flavour is very sweet pear with an apple-cinnamon finish. Slightly above average.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 14, 2006
Apple liqueur aroma, light copper, taste is sticky apple sauce, kind of sweet, ordinary, save for the pretentious word in the description, what the heck is cegape? Thanks jerc.

Gorbalev (2895) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 18, 2006
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.
