This cider was specially made for a draft customer in Grand Rapids, MI.. We are using over 4 lbs. of homemade cinnamon roasted pecans in a 30 gallon batch of this limited edition cider to bring you Totally Roasted. You will notice that soaking pecans in cider brings a unique texture and taste to the drink. We use cinnamon and vanilla during the roasting process and follow that up by adding whole cut vanilla beans to the cider. These subtle tastes certainly make this a cider all it’s own.

This pours a very pale yellow color with a decent amount of carbonation. The aroma is full of apple and a very small amount of cinnamon and vanilla. The taste has a nice apple base with a tasty spice flavor. A very interesting cider.

12 oz. can I came back from GTMW with. Very clear yellowish. A little carbonation floats up but no foam. A nice spice effect here. Light cinnamon and nuts along with something buttery. Apples are almost in the background and are semi sweet. Just a hint of vanilla. Alcohol is not tasted.

My first cider. Aroma is cinnamon, apple, vanilla. Appearance is like apple juice, white head, pale yellow. Taste is cinnamon and apple, light vanilla and pecans. Mouthfeel is crisp and refreshing, really nice. Overall, this is perfect for an Autumn day.

This stuff is a cut above most spiced ciders, which have tended to be chemically tasting messes in my experience. This has a nice subtle vanilla and cinnamon character which brings to mild apple pie w/o beating you over the head w/ it. It is lightly sweet but not cloying or sticky w/ just enough tartness to balance w/o clashing w/ the spice. Definitely, if you are inclined to like this sort of thing, check it out.

On tap: The aroma consists of moderate cinnamon apples. It’s a transparent pale white gold with a minimal white head that is really just a very fine ring around the edges of the glass. The flavor starts a quick dose of lightly tart apple. The finish has light-moderate cinnamon and a hint of toasted of. It’s light bodied with mild carbonation.

Sampled at Lagunitas Beer Circus. I think I caught more of the vanilla and cinnamon than pecan in this, but I am not usually one to enjoy nut flavors. Definitely a spicy little cider, and there is a bit of more solid texture like it had picked up some firm pecan flesh. Just enough to set it pleasantly apart from most any other cider.
