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)

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rated on 6-08-2010 (Bottle) This cider’s appearance is a small fizzy head, hazy pale body, and fizzy carbonation. The aroma is sweet, maple, cinnamon, apples, vanilla, and tart. The taste is sweet, maple, vanilla, tart, apples, and slightly sour. The palate is smooth and this cider is medium bodied. Overall, this has a very different flavor for a cider and one that I cannot drink a whole lot of at one sitting. It is worth trying.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Head is initially very small, fizzy, white, fully diminishing. Body is hazy medium yellow. Aroma is notes of decaying apple peels, apple juice, brown sugar, raisin. Flavor is heavily sweet, moderately acidic. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic. Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, fizzy carbonation.
The apple scent is sadly a bit rotten, and while I don’t really get the impression of cinnamon or vanilla, there’s definitely something adjuncty in it...seems more sugary than anything though. Mediocre and a bit novelty-ish.
