Very sweet in a good way. Not syrupy. Tastes like nonalcoholic cider. Thick and good.

Wow, this cider left me with a huge smile on my face. The higher alcohol is not apparent at all. It has a great cloudy color that reminds me of an unfiltered wheat beer. Has a nice head like beer too. Then the taste is a softly sweet apple with that creamy vanilla undertone that sets it apart from any other cider I’ve had. I tried this one cold but I’ve heard it is great warmed up with a cinnamon stick and some orange zest. Yum.

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...

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

I found this today at a local grocery store in the mountains and couldn’t believe there was a JK there! The cider runs very sweet similar to an Angry Orchard Muse or Iceman but retains much of the flavors like some of the unfiltered Finnriver or deluxe Crispin. The maple is very distinct in it where it almost has a caramel flavor to it. I highly recommend this if you’d like to try a naturally sweet cider that isn’t as processed as many of the ones on the general market and is organic :)

Wow. Great Cider. Sweat and slightly tart apple flavor. Then the vanilla hots you balanced with the maple syrup and cinnamon. Wonderfully balanced and tastes great. Only negative would be the price, at $6 or 7 a 22 oz bottle, it's not an every day cider.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a deep hazy darker golden with a thin eggshell ring of "head." Nose is like baked apple pie with cinnamon, dusty pie crust, and bold apple. Nicely sweet, quite tart. Fuller bodied, syrupy, slick, softer carb, with a long tangy and spicy apple finish. Simply awesome. On another level.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
In the bottle from Beertopia. Pours a dark reddish gold to amber color with a rapidly disseminating effervescent head. The aroma is fairly standard apple cider with little indication of the treat awaiting. The four-part flavor blast runs from apples to sweetness to vanilla to tartness. Jumping around in there is a jangle of cinnamon, but only a bit. This is like an apple pie in a bottle. Just incredible. My only knock on it is the unnecessary marketing scheme of having it be "organic." All that does for the beer is raise its price. I think that this was the best holiday treat of 2009.

Delicious must-taste cider and winter beer. Amazing flavor profile brings out the vanilla and spice while remaining a true apple cider. Aroma is just as lovely, with apples cinnamon and vanilla weaving together.

Smells like pie, tastes like pie. Crust, Granny Smith apples, baked ’till they’re soft with a tiny crunch and caramelized sugar, little sticky, cinnamon all warm out of the oven. It tastes like food. I don’t drink this WITH dessert, I drink it FOR dessert.
