[4694-20120817] Clear bottle. Light sweet apple aroma. Clear, light yellow orange body with no lasting head. More apple skins in the flavour with a little honey sweetener base. Medium body. As I recall, this was probably the turning-point beverage to inspire me to start rating (back in 2006), so I was quite glad to get the chance to try it again. (7/3/7/3/14) 3.4

GT2 (8435) - San Diego County, California, USA - AUG 21, 2012
375mL shared at Campdown Brewdown. Sweet- PEI tick! Pours a clear gold with good legs. Nose is heavy sugar. Taste is sugary and dense. Small plastic. A little cloying. Very little apple character, no "nectar" character like the best ice ciders. Not crisp or refreshing.

SpringsLicker (3133) - Tennessee, USA - APR 29, 2012
Clear gold, still. Aroma of apples, honey and a bit of alcohol. Sweet and sippable. This really could be served a bit warmer than my sample and perhaps more enjoyment would be gotten if it were the only drink I was sampling. Very tasty.

Suttree (5142) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 29, 2012
Ah, my elusive Prince Edward Island tick - thanks for the trade, jerc! Smells like apple and honey, with a good deal of rich, earthy notes. Taste is apple, honey, tobacco, and leather. Pretty tasty!

decaturstevo (5015) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - APR 28, 2012
Gold pour no head or lace. Aroma is pear and light honey. Super sweet pear with a light honey overtone. Medium body with no carbonation.

phaleslu (6509) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 23, 2011
Tasted at the winery. Pours a pale, clear, oily pale yellow color with no head. Aroma of apple skins, faint herbs and grass, and a little booze. Didn’t get a whole lot on the nose; I think it was a little too cool. Flavor improved a bit with more distinct sweet and fresh red apples, honey sweetness, and herbs- but really just a lot of apples. Seems light initially but deceptively bigger. Dry and crisp on the finish. Minimal carbonation, none really to speak of. Interesting but not my favorite take on this style.

VertBaconStrips (2081) - Assat, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 7, 2011
Poured out a viscous gold liquid that leaves thick legs. Nice aroma if sweet apple thickness, red apple skin, hint of herbalness, honey and yumminess. Tons of sweet apples that border on cloying and then run amok. Yea it is not so sweet that I can’t drink the whole bottle. Tartness for a second, red apples skin, pressed flesh, shitloads of apples, honey flavors. Thick Snd viscous with the smallest hint of alcohol. Good stuff that isn’t great.

oh6gdx (20330) - Vasa, FINLAND - JAN 7, 2011
Bottled (my notes only said Rossignol Blossom)@the chriso "rock the roof down" pre-gbbf tasting. Yellow colour with no head. Aroma is sweet and riped apple along with some slight green apples and mild alcohol. Flaour is being quite the same with some slight honeylike sweetness as well. Hides the alcohol quite well, but gives a slight burn to it.
