Bottle, big thanks to _angst_! Clear golden color, absolutely no head. Sweet overripe apples, fruity, yeasty, apple juice, vinous notes. Sweet apple flavor, apple juice, warming alcohol, vinous, overripe apples. A bit hard to rate. It’s very good, but kinda focuses all on the apples. Really sweet and with alcohol well hidden.

Bottle shared by sic1314 @ DTE tasting. Clear orangy color, no head. Aroma is a mix of apple, wine and alcohol. Taste apple, a bit winey, alcohol, a touch of overripe fruits. Full flavored and pretty nice, but imo this is not the best even though I’ve only rated two at this point I think.
