Bottle. Pours clear, bright gold with a small bubbly head. Aroma is apple cider with tons of oak and a hint of vanilla. Big oak-y barrel taste as well with some moderate sweet apple cider and honey. A touch of bourbon shows up in the finish. Mouthfeel is a little sticky and itís pretty smooth. Really liking these Vander Mill barrel aged ciders. I need to try some more.

Draft. Not really tasting hte sum of its parts. It smells lie cherry bubblegum or those packs with the zebras on it. Flavor is sweet with light furits, cherry, and not a huge tart apple bite. The barrel is more evident in the taste.

Draft at FoBAB í13. Pours a clear golden color with no head. The aroma and flavor have sweet honey, apples, wood, some mild bourbon notes. I keep trying to like ciders, but they all become too much of the same thing.

Draft to tulip at HopCat in Grand Rapids. Looks solid; a transparent copperish gold with very thin eggshell lacing and soft carbonation. Smells and tastes of oak and apples with a touch of honey. Solid on the palate with a somewhat tart mouthfeel. A nice take on the style.

Strykzone (4931) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - APR 19, 2014
On tap at Global Brew OíFallon. This was clear and some gold amber hues. I was very curious as to what this would be. Aromas of apple and honey. Those are tasted, as well. I hoped the mead would bring complexity and interesting aspects but that really did not happen. In the end it was honey and cider.

Exceptional. Like a rich cider wine. Not to tart and not to sweet and not bitter at all. I love cyser and dragons milk and will have this seconds.
