DuffMan (6886) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 29, 2014
On tap @ the meadery. Medium golden with fine carbo, and a thin white head that recedes to a ring (indicative of the presence of malt/grains). More full in body than the other two ciders we tried, bigger sweetness, soft, with honey and caramel and apples. Really nice.

patrick767 (3584) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - JAN 28, 2014
tap at MacNivenís on Sep 1, 2013 - Smells of ripe apples with a touch of caramel. It tastes sweet but less sweet than many ciders. I noted mild woody notes for some reason. Itís bubbly and light to medium bodied with lingering tart apple and a little alcohol. Good cider.

Draft at New Day. From notes. Tart apples with a hint of caramel. Good, but not the best from here.

Draft pour. Darker gold in appearance. Still. I get a spiced apple pie presence in the aroma. Fairly sweet overall.

TheAlum (5833) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUL 6, 2013
Draft at the New Day Bar (Indianapolis, IN). First visit. Great visit! Pours a rich golden amber hue, healthy haze and orange amber glow throughout. A frothy whitish head atop dies to a ring, laces small. Aromas are sweeter, caramel and apple, gentle pie element and some mellow cider spice. Apple, honey, spice. Some pie. Initial is sweeter, a medium bodied offers rich apple, cider, and spice. Some gente caramel and toffee into the middle clears up quicker but makes itís presence felt. More spice into the backend, some sweeter elements, a bit honeycrisp and more apple as we round the corner. A bit cidery, dry, and lively back there. Finish is lingering red apple, a touch of sweetness. Pretty nice, a bit sweet, a touch more body, but really what you picture from a Fall cider. Nice.

queenholly (2987) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - MAY 13, 2013
Draft @ meadery. Sweet sorghum, light woody vanilla, and caramel apple aroma. Slightly hazed honey gold, no head per usual for cider. Sweet apple and sorghum flavor. Medium body, flat carbonation.

DrSilverworm (6579) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 1, 2013
Sample on tap at the meadery. Mildly hazy golden orange color. No head or lace. Apples, lightly baked, hint of spice, light caramel. Lightly tart, more sweet. Medium-plus body. More dry finish. Light, kind of crisp carbonation. Easy to drink. Solid cider. Good for what it is.

WozWx (83) - Lafayette, Indiana, USA - JAN 29, 2013
Pretty decent cider. Actually had somewhat of a tart flavor and finished smooth with apple and caramel hints. I didnít taste the sorghum, but I donít really know what it tastes like so maybe I just missed it.
