4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a straw-colored yellow with considerable cloudiness. Aroma is primarily of maple syrup and secondarily of apples--definitely sweet. Taste is, first and foremost, sweet. The flavor of the apple is evenly matched by the additions of vanilla, cinnamon, and maple syrup, each of which is discernible. Alcohol is noticeable and becomes more so as the cider warms. But even when cool to cold, the cider is extremely flavorful. In spite of this sweetness, there’s a certain dryness where the cider itself is concerned--quite crisp. Mouthfeel is lively, with tingly carbonation--just about what you’d expect for a cider. In sum, this may be the best cider I’ve tried. Now, I know that the additions of the vanilla, cinnamon, and syrup don’t make for the most "authentic" cider. Whatever. This is seriously flavorful, and while some may find the sweetness too cloying (entirely possible), you’d be missing out on something special if you passed this one by.

Sweet apple smell. Apple cinammon taste which I thought was good, but I like their Northern Neighbour cider better.

22oz bottle. Copper color, flat. Bold character at first taste. Smells of spiced cider. Strong. Tastes of over-ripened/cooked apples. It’s alright. (4004)

From bottle at Naps. Pale straw golden clear with visible carbonation, topped with white foamy dissipating head. Terrific cider funky nose, fresh and macerated apples. A little sour, a little spicy with dry cider funk. Medium carbonation and body. Wonderful flavor. Tart, bright, and juicy with a hint of cinnamon. Mild funky finish with lingering sweetness. Very nice semi-dry cider, reminding me of a Normandy cider.
