3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a medium golden color with a finger of fizzy bubbles that gasses out quickly. The nose is sweet apple pie, vanilla, hints of seasoning and some more sweet candy apple. The palate follows with a light carbonation and a big cloyingly sweet palate that is much akin to actual unfermented apple cider. lots of sweet apple, traces of bitter peels, vanilla stick and mulling spices. Pretty tasty but a bit too sweet for me to fall in love with.

Almost no head. Golden colored. Rich taste. Heavily cider flavored, but light on the alcohol. This is a real crowd pleaser.

I am not sure why anyone would rate this above a 2. No apple taste, way too sweet, nothing good about it.

22 oz bottle- Pours slightly hazy golden. Aroma is strong in apples, tart and a little funky, apple pie aroma with the cinnamon and vanilla, appealing. The taste is again apples of course, apple pie spices, the maple syrup adds a depth that I really like, i think it creates a fuller cider, nice. Body is medium and the finish lingers leaving a nice spiced apple taste long after the swallow. Good.

Spectacular cider! Used to be called "J.K.’s Solstice" and has now been cleverly renamed "Winterruption" but is the same tasty beverage in a different package. Huge mouthfeel, lots of character and balanced spices. The apple still shines through on this seasonal twist on the original. Try it mulled (warm) while toasting by the fire...

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Well, this was a really nice cider. Pours hazy orange with not much of a head to it. The aroma has mushy apples with a peach hint. There is also vanilla, light caramel and some spices - quite nice and inviting. It has a medium smooth body that’s lush with light carbonation. The flavor starts off with smooth apple, caramel, spices and vanilla. The finish is lush and has some toffee and brown sugar aspects. Quite enjoyable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice light nose of warm apples and cinnamon. Clear light gold. Light carbonation. Rich, round palate for a cider, fruit flavor drives a perception of sweetness, but fairly dry. Nice spice on the finish. Really nice fall sipper.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Gold pour with a spotty ring of bubbles on the surface. Not too different from the color of apple juice. Aroma is apple juice with light cinnamon notes and baked apple pie. Taste is apple juice, apple jam, light cinnamon and baked apple pie. Body is light with faint carbonation and plenty of sugary stickiness. Ends with more apple pie notes, apple juice, candied apple and cinnamon.

Nice spice and apple aroma and taste, but more sweetness and alcohol than I need in a hard cider. Cloudy amber color.
