COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
When the leaves fall, there’s a chill in the air and the evening greedily takes hours from daylight, we stand strong and embrace the wintertime. It’s a time of rich foods, roaring fires and our favorite sweaters. Drinks change from refreshing to intense and satisfying. The Mitten is a Winter cider, a blend of last seasons best, aged in bourbon barrels, with the new season’s fresh pressed apple juice. Straight cider, aged for 3 seasons, finds notes of vanilla, caramel and charred American oak, balanced with the best of the orchard, over-ripe apples and their sweet, tart, earthy juice. Many barrels are filled, but only a small portion, the very smoothest, will find their way into The Mitten. We love wintertime, especially when we have The Mitten to keep us warm and happy through the long, cold night.

Fritz123 (1285) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - SEP 22, 2014
Draft at the Syb Pig in Boca Raton. Pours a clear golden elixir with a very small frothy short lived head. Aroma is apples, pears, kiwi, and oak barrel. The taste is delicious with apple, pear, oak barrel, slight spice, and grass. The body is obviously light and refreshing. Slight tartness.

BLADT (680) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JUL 20, 2014
Bottle pour. Semi-opaque gold in glass. A flash bang of a white head. Aroma of green apples, white wine offsets, ceder and vanilla sweetness presumably from the aging. Complex, but pulled off. Starts subtly sweet, with apples showing first, followed by a warm middle that plays up the bourbon lineage. Finish is dry. Medium bodied. Above average action from the carbonation. This was a fun bottle.
