COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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 itís own.

16 oz. can at Senate. Pours a totally clear, bright yellow with some bubbles and a whit head that dissipates quickly. Thereís not a whole lot to the aroma, and certainly not much in the way of toasted pecan; fresh apple, light minerals, straw, and pale malts. The flavor does have a light toastiness, with tart apples, faint cinnamon spice, and a hint of vanilla. Light-bodied, with medium to high carbonation and a crisp, refreshing, lightly tart mouthfeel. Good cider. Beats the one in the red can.

Tap...Clear golden pour with a powerful vanilla flavor that drowned out the apple. Good as a unique cider offering but the non-apple flavor apple cider would not have me reaching for another one.

Nice refreshing cider! Itís nice to see a decent semi dry cider in a world where angry orchard is a thing that exists... It has an interesting flavor thats not as boisterous as the in-your-face brands... I like it.....

Had this on tap. No real nose, but itís a marvelous golden crisp clear color. Tastes cidery and vanilla nutty. Nutty vanilla after taste also. It tastes like something Iíd make. (itís pretty good)

Can. Clear, very light yellow pour with a small fizzy head that collects to a thin ring. Aromas are sugary apples with cinnamon and light pecans. Tastes apple pie with pecans. Pretty nice but a little sugary sweet. Vanilla lingers in the finish with some tart apples too. Pretty nice cider.

Aroma is apples/apple juice and hints of cinnamon and earthy/nuttiness. The flavor is apples, mild nutty notes, very slight cinnamon heat and a tart/earthy finish.

Had on tap at their place in Spring Lake MI. Pours a clear yellow. Nice clean cider. Slight vanilla slight spicyness but not overwhelming. Super nice cider. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours from the can into a pale pale transparent yellow color with light bubbles rising to the top. A small apple smell with just a hint of a nutty background. Maybe even a slight alcohol aroma. A bubbly tingly feel right upfront. It does have a nice roasty feel to it. Not a ton of cinnamon but the blend does put off a decent apple pie vibe with a dry finish. Best at just below room temperature for me. Not bad.

Donít usually drink cider, but thought I would have this while relaxing outside. Got a growler without expecting much. It tastes like a good cider. I donít really get pecans or anything. Maybe there are hints of stuff in it, but I am not experienced enough to pick it out. It is sweet but also tart. Tastes like apple, like you would expect it to. Enjoyable. Can only drink a glass at at time though.
