COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sweet apple cider spiced with nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger, and allspice. If you have ever found yourself eating apple pie and drinking cider to wash it down, frustrated that it takes to long to chew, swallow, and take the occasional breath, then the day you have been waitin for has finally arrived. You can have your pie and drink it too! Seriously, this stuff is schmoove and will go down quickly. Give it a try. Itís as American as Apple Pie Cider.

Draft pour at Churchkey on my birthday. Poured a lightly hazy golden color with a small off-white head. Aroma was spiced apples, plenty of cinnamon and nutmeg. Flavor was like well cooked, spiced apple dessert. While I might normally say that this was too spiced for a cider, what it resulted in was about perfect. It tasted like a apple crisp. I would drink this again if I had the chance without hesitation.

It poured a golden yellow color with a white head. The aroma was of apples with a little cinnamon and some nutmeg. The taste was of some tart apples with some nice sweetness and cinnamon with a hint of nutmeg. Decent cider.

On draft at the Tap Room in a half-pint glass. It poured a clear golden amber colour with just a thin ring of white bubbles. This is a good example of cider with a strong personality but well-balanced. Sweet and tart apple aspects, hint of alcohol (less than youíd expect at 7% abv), recongnizeable pie spices: allspice, nutmeg, cinnamon, lots of clove. I enjoyed it more than most ciders. Well-crafted.

A pretty yellow-tan color, just like apple juice, very clear, fizzy head that dissipated pretty quick. Smells and tastes just like a nice apple pie, with light spices. Iím glad itís not over-spiced, I canít stand cinnamon in drinks! But they did this one up just perfectly. If you like cider, definitely try this while youíre at the taproom in St Louis!

On tap at Schlafly bottleworks. Pours clear golden. Cinnamon stick and clove aroma. Not as sweet as other ciders I have had, more green apple flavor, slightly astringent finish.

Draft at the Tap Room. This poured golden and clear with some brightness. The nose was apples with cinnamon and nutmeg. The apples were just a bit tart around the edges but with some nice sweetness, too. Again cinnamon and nutmeg are tasted. This was quite nice. The name is a good description.

Pours clear golden with a small head. The aroma has lots of rich apples and a hefty spice presence with allspice and nutmeg seeming to be the most assertive to me. This is pretty rich and smooth for a cider and has very restrained carbonation. The flavor starts with rich sweet red apples and a good amount of spice, but not as much as the aroma. The spices are more integrated on the taste with none dominating the others. Everything seems to be in the right proportions with spice offsetting the sweetness, so that its not too sweet and the spices all being well represented. The finish has a bit of powdery spiciness. Really well done cider. Gotta agree with phaleslu that this is the best cider theyíve done.

Draft served in a snifter at The Bottleworks. Pours a clear, bright gold with a tiny white ring and some rising carbonation bubbles. Aroma of apples, cinnamon, sugar, nutmeg, ginger, and sweet crackers. Wow, spot on. Flavor of apples, ginger, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Light-medium bodied, with a tart, spicy mouthfeel and modest carbonation. Delivers what it promises. Best Schlafly cider ever.
