As the sun arcs low in the mid day sky, this year’s harvest is slowly fermenting in its winter slumber.

Everyone here at the Orchard enjoys a few halcyon days to remember the hard work in the last year’s harvest. We look forward to next year’s crop of apples.

To warm ourselves in the cold northern solstice we enjoy our winter cider. Lightly spiced with ethically traded cinnamon, vanilla and a wee drop of syrup from our old Maple trees on our farm.

Enjoy this wonderful cider cool or gently warmed, savor a tipple to reflect on your last year and bountiful new year beginning.

The aroma is very sweet and spicy with apples and maple syrup. The appearance is hazy gold orange with no head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is thin. Overall this is a really good cider.

Bottle. Poured golden with a quick white head. Aroma of tart apple and a light farmhouse background. The flavor found apple pie; apple, cinnamon, and a light malt backing. Light to medium body. Slight tart up front and a nice sweet ending.

(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.

TheAlum (5909) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 19, 2011
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.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - APR 3, 2011
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.
