Bottle that I took to James’ for the multi-K tasting. Pours a clear gold with no head. Soft dusty apple with a bit of dry honey powder on the nose. Sweet and faintly tart, medium bodied, tangy and slightly warm. Slight menthol note, a hint of smoke. Tangy with some faint acid over honey into the finish. Lovely.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft at Three Penny Taproom - Poured a clear light straw yellow in color with a small bubbly head that disappeared quickly. Aroma is strong of both apples and honey, as you expect. along with the tiniest bit of "funk". Flavor is medium sweet and, again the honey and apples dominate. Not much evidence of the considerable ABV. Very nice!

On tap at the Farmhouse Tap and Grille Burlington VT.
Pours a crystal clear golden amber color with a smattering of tiny bubbles that dissipate almost instantly. Smells of apples, honey, brown sugar, and a hint of sulfur. Taste is sweet with sugar, honey, and apples. Medium body with a semi sweet palette. Nice cyser, and definitely a contrast to the ipa’s I’d been drinking,
