mcberko (6029) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 4, 2014
375mL bottle, pours a clear mahogany / maroon with just a few bubbles. Nose is deeply complex and rich, with loads of caramelized apples, a little treacle toffee, and some alcohol. Flavour is pretty great, with loads of caramelized sugar, treacle toffee, sweet apples, and a hefty alcoholic burn. Very thick and syrupy mouthfeel, with a bit of a berry-like cloying sweetness on the finish. Wonderful stuff.

fiulijn (14340) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 21, 2013
Corked bottle from Liberty Wine on Commercial Dr, Vancouver, vintage 2007, 5 years old
Wonderful amber color with beautiful legs. Mild aroma of apple syrup, some apple stew, and alcohol. Very thick mouthfeel, syrupy; evident fruit acidity; it has the usual good flavor of apple syrup and stewed apples; also brown sugar, berry syrup, and a touch of glue. This one has a very light astringency, on the gums.
Tasted side to side with the Fuji Iced Cider, it’s also very good but less elegant.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - APR 15, 2010
Pours mahogany with a nice neck on the glass. Smells tarte with some underlying velvety sweetness. Tastes of baking apples, some warming alcohol presence, some molasses on the finish.

OKBeer (1170) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - FEB 19, 2008
375 ml bottle courtesy Capflu. Still, brilliant golden, amber, and brown blend of colours. Sweet caramelized apples, light sherry, brown sugar, and mor rich caramel aroma with ligth alcohol notes. Balance of sweet and sour flavours - apple, maple, caramel, brown sugar, and even strawberry meets cider vinegar, some balsamic, sherry, and sour cherries. Maybe even some soft cheese and leathery touches undermeath the sweet and sour. Full bodied, rich, velvety, but syrupy mouthfeel. Rich, inviting, complex, but bordering on overpowering.
