Terrific: lots of cinnamon taste and aroma, sweet like an apple pie and tart like apple juice. Nice appearance though wish it is a bit more carbonated. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Travlr (19929) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 23, 2016
Bottle. Clear golden color, still. Cinnamon and nutmeg are up front but not overwhelming, background of sweet apple. Taste seems sweet as well, with a decent helping of spice. Might be nice served warm on a cold day, but it was tasty enough cold on a warm day.

Lubiere (12401) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 6, 2016
A hazed golden cider with a thin white head. In aroma, apple pie, cinnamon, cardamom, intense. In mouth, a sweet apple juice with apple pie spices, cinnamon, cloves, interesting. On tap at CNY Brewfest 2016.

degbert (1594) - Austin, Texas, USA - NOV 17, 2015
Bottle. Pours tan-gold with visible haze and no carbonation. Nose is apple, allspice, nutmeg, and brown sugar; very much a mulled cider nose. Sweeter than the others in the line, with vanilla, glazed doughnut, graham cracker, and apple compote notes; this is definitely a dessert cider. Clove bitterness cuts through the sweetness on the finish, and it needs the contrast. Quite nice, if you’re a fan of the sweet stuff.

This poured a golden color with light carb. Aroma was of cinnamon, vanilla and light apple. Flavor similar, not overly spiced or sweetened. Ok.

Tap @ Resurgence. Hazy honey with thin ring of bubbles. Aromas of cinnamon, green apple, vanilla, "crunch." Tastes like a spiced cider. Autumn is nigh.

One tasty cider! Kind of a dull pale gold pour w/ no head or lacing but lots of bubbles. The aroma is just spicy enough to draw you in. The flavor is a fall spice explosion! Complex & refreshing - this is a really good cider! Loaded w/ spice upfront it finishes nearly clean w/ just enough tastiness lingering on the tongue to make you want more. Bravo!
