(bottle - 22 oz) Hazy gold pour with a fizzy white head. Huge spice and apple aroma. Lots of cinnamon and clove. Flavor is spiced heavily. Cinnamon, clove, apples and a light touch of syrup. Smooth and very sweet. Probably would taste good warmed up.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled at Flossmoor Tapping (Flossmoor, IL). Pours a glowing orange hue, touches of haziness, no real head. Aromas are crisp honey apples, tart granny smith, touches of honey, fresh apples, light honey, touches of sweet fruits. Initial is honeycrisp apples, honey, some tartness. Light fruitiness, touches of cinnamon like spiciness. Some touches of oak, vanilla, more honeycrisp apples. Finish is lingering sweetness, touch of tartness. A sweeter cider, which isn’t really my style in the cider game. Ok.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber. Pours a slightly petillant gold with tiny tiny white bubbles. The aroma is mellow fresh apple, a little bit of cinnamon, and a tame sweetness. The flavor is smooth tasty apple, a touch of cinnamon, and a lovely smooth vanilla that wasn’t evident in the nose. The maple is noticeable in the aftertaste. It’s fairly sweet, but a little bit of an acidic edge cuts through it to keep from becoming cloying. This is surprisingly good.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice, crisp, sweet, slightly buttery apple aroma. Good bottle, mostly clear honey gold. Very sweet dessert cider, muted spiciness. Heavy body, lights up your tongue. Very well done, this is a slow-sippin’ affair. Thanks to LuckyDog for hauling this back from someplace in central or northeast Florida.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance: Pours out a hazed, golden-toned body.
Smell: An opening aroma of apple, lightly tart and lightly sweet, followed by vanilla and cinnamon spice. A long sniffing session finally yields a hint of the rumored maple.
Taste: Sugary sweet taste of apple juice spiced lightly with cinnamon. A faint, fleeting earthiness precludes the vanilla and maple which is punctuated by a bit of alcohol and apple tartness.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium-low carbonation.
Drinkability: It’s tasty, sweet, and reasonably spiced. A nice seasonal offering.
