On tap @ the meadery. Just a wee shade darker yellow than the Gold Rush, with very fine carbo. Aroma of honey, wax, and apples. Sweeter honeyed palate, fresh apple, crisp and dry finish. Excellent.

Had this one at the New Day tasting room. A really nice contrast to some of the meads. Heavy flavor of apples with a nice sweet finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampler at the New Day Bar (Indianapolis, IN). First visit. Great visit! Pours a firm chardonnay hue, gentle haziness and glow overall. A mellow frothy whitish ring atop laces small, sticks around small. Aromas are apple, a faint touch of funk. Mellow honey, bit of spicy cider feel but on the lower end. Some apple skin, gentle sweetness, earth. A kiss of honey, sweetness. Initial is fuzzy and well carbonated up front, some tart apple, quickly moving into a creamy sweet middle. Gentle honey, honeycrip apples give a touch of body and respite. Backend moves quickly back to a tart backend, dry and apple tartness, Granny Smith returns. A bit spicy, dry. Some jabs of sweetness from that mellow honey addition at times. Definitely effects the body a bit. Finish is a bit fuzzy, tart, dry and apple driven, a touch earthy. Pretty solid. The bit of sweetness gives a touch of body and bit of respite in the middle. Upping the complexity a touch. Gold Rush is still more my thing, but this is a very nice and well constructed cider.

Sample on tap at the meadery. Clear body, sort of colorless. Just a very pale yellow hue. Minimal white head. Medium body. Good light crisp carbonation. Lightly sweet taste. Bit of tart. Light cinnamon. Baked apples. Solid. I just prefer my ciders a bit less sweet.
