Bottle - Pours hazy amber with no head. Nose is sweet, crisp apple upfront with some dry apple and white grape mingling in. Taste is ripe, sweet apple, a bit of syrupy sugar, and a bit of grape on the finish. Sweet and decadent. Slick and syrupy with no carbonation.

500mL. Pours a low haze darker peach. Soda white foam. Nose is tangerine, apple pie, a quick waft of funky acetic. Moving to more and more acetic. Taste is apple pie, cinnamon, some oil, tangerine, mild acetic sourness. Yummy, funky.

First shot a had cider and it does not disappoint. Taste is apple juice with a strong element of apple pie flavor. I like this as a change. Very drinkable.

First sip was a blast of electric on the tongue, almost like a 9 volt battery. Wow. Spices are very dominant, but they are not complex or overwhelming in any way. Liquid apple-pie. Rich yet supple apples fill the mouth, and the finish is quite sweet. Probably just a bit too sweet for my liking. Well-made nonetheless.

UPDATED: APR 26, 2013 Refrigerated bottle poured into a white wine glass. Pours slightly hazy light golden, low carbonation, aroma apple with a hint of cinnamon. Taste is complex sweet rich apples, some cinnamon, some vanilla, and a hint of maple syrup. This is a really wonderful cider.

A very good cider. Great flavor. Hard to find but well worth it. The only flaw is the aftertaste. It is hard to describe but I find it unpleasant.

The bottle should mention: incredibly sweet. I also thought the "light" spicing was actually rather heavy-handed. Had a hard time finishing my (chilled) 8 oz glass of this. Just too sweet, not what I am personally looking for in a craft cider. On the other had this made a KILLER addition to some pork gravy I was making....

Pale copper pour looks just like apple juice thin ring of white head .... aroma of apples and sugary .... taste is of light cinnamon, a touch of maple and apples .... very apple juice like but a little unnaturally sweetened ... mouthfeel has some apple skin to it .... little too sweet but abv hidden well and solid cider

Bottle from earth fare. Pours apple color with no head and very little carbonation to speak of. Smells like apples. Taste is very sweet as though they combined cider with a bag of potpourri. The taste stays in your mouth long after its gone. Not my favorite example of the style.
