2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
330ml bottle (Drink Shop, Tallinn)
Hot aroma, a punch. Quite rough in the mouth too. At least when cold. Does mellow as it warms though, but still remains hot. Quite winey, some honey aspects. Pleasantly fruity still, but the winey aspects are quite heady. A bit rough, but the warmer end is sweeter and smoother.

Sampled at the 2013 Chicago Cider Summit. Pours a clear yellow with a thin head that starts at the edges and dissipates completely. Aroma has some dry apple and is a bit reserved. Flavor has a combination of earthy dry apple and sweet apples with the dryness coming out in the finish.
