12oz can. Pours a straw yellow color with a fizzy white head that leaves thin bubbly lacing. Smells of sweet apples, oak, cloves, and cinnamon. Tastes of the same things in the smell with slight smoky and scotch flavor in the back end also. Mouthfeel is thin and watery with good carbonation. This was exactly as described. Very good for an oak aged cider. I thought the apples used might be over ripe though. Would like to have this on tap somewhere.

Always in search of that cider thatís going to knock my socks off. This one came close being pleasantly boozy in the body, sweet in the middle, and oaky dry towards the finish. Pretty good stuff!

12oz can pours a clear golden with no head. Boozy sweet vanilla oak aroma, sweet apples. Sweet apples with slight chemical alcohol. The oak aging doesnít do this any favors.

Can from world beers. Pours a very light blonde. Scent of cider (surprise). Taste is nice and dry. Almost like a white wine. Pretty good.

12 oz can. Aroma is really oaky + apples. Hazy golden pour with minimal white head. Tasty, but nothing Iíd buy.

Can. 2.49$. Pours a clear golden color with a bubbly body. A sweet sugary nose, some super ripe apples. More sweetness in the flavor, really ripe, almost way too much, the back sweetening is big here, maybe some oak, but not a ton. Fleshy, oddly metallic. Hmmm. This is not a terrible cider, it finishes quite dry and more oak in the tail.

Apple juice colored with slight ring of head atop a flat body. Powerful oaky nose, replete with vanillins and Canadian whiskey, that is unlike any I have experienced in a cider before. Sweet cider and whiskey body with a nice woodyness that crackles beneath

12 oz can- Pours a nice hazy straw golden. Aroma is apples, cinnamon, a little smokiness, vanilla and of course oak, nice. The taste is fermented apples, apple core, cinnamon and vanilla, oak. Body is like most ciders, fairly thin yet this sustains long after the swallow. I was expecting to love this and based on that I was a little disappointed, the aroma was better than the taste, it had a bit of a past itís prime apple taste, I wish the oak had dominated a little more than what it did only leaving hints of flavors from the oak.

Can. Pale yellow with lots of fine carbonation. Over ripe apples, caramel, vanilla and oak. Taste is a blend of sweet, tart and dry, all balanced and not too strong. Body is light and fizzy. Decent cider, but it seemed like the sweet onset took away from some of the oakiness.

12 oz can. Pours clear straw-gold with a ring of white bubbles. Aroma is alcohol - whoa alcohol. Once acclimated to that aromas of a backyard BBQ come through. Taste: moderately sweet, with vanilla and brown sugar mingling with the BBQ and booze. Finish is short, mostly dry with some lingering sweetness. Medium body, slick coating mouthfeel, lovely fine bubbled carbonation. Overall: donít know much about ciders, but this was very pleasant, and the BBQ adds some uniqueness to it.
