ChainGangGuy (4391) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - FEB 23, 2010
Appearance: Pours out a clear, innocent-looking liquid with a slight yellow tinge to it. Smell: Moderately sweet-scented aroma smelling, certainly, of honey, though not strongly so as well as a notable apple aroma and some mild wax lips notes. Taste: Mildly sweet mingling of honey and just-juiced apples. Faint tickling of tannins and tartness here and there. Prominent alcoholic heat on the drying finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-thin, still body. Drinkability: You’ve got some honey, you’ve got some apples, you’ve got some booze... it’s a cyser, alright! Cyser?! I hardly knew ’er!

Bottle. Pour was light with an aroma of crisp tart apples and honey. Very well blended cyser with a great residual sweetness. Nice body and balance.

mcjay (463) - Neenah, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 19, 2009
Yellow color. Flavors of apple and honey. Tastes a little sweet but is still very dry. A little to much like a typical apple wine but still an upgrade.

grimreeser (797) - Minnesota, USA - SEP 29, 2008

[Bottle] Pours clear golden. Aroma definitely has apple, with some alcohol and honey. Taste is alcohol with a good amount of apple and some honey. Medium mouthfeel. Have had this a few times now and found it to be a really enjoyable mead.

37steel (186) - St. Charles, Illinois, USA - JAN 2, 2008
750ml bottle. Clear still golden. Shows some legs. Lots of apple in the nose with a hint of alcohol as well. Taste is honey, butter, and apples. Hides its alcohol very well. Sweet at the start but a nice dry finish. Very drinkable. I liked this a lot.

Pour is pinot grigio color. Perfumy aroma of honey, apple, pear, and butter. Interesting flavor. The apple becomes more pronounced in the flavor, but all of the elements are there. Some white wine like qualities, but with the complexity here that makes me prefer this to most whites. Oily palate.

750ml $12.99 Somewhere in Hayward White Winter’s Cyser pours a crystal clear very faint golden. Still and absolutely glowing through the flute. Leaves some legs after each swirl. Good looking cyser. Smell is straightforward but definately good. Upfront the aroma consists of slightly musty fresh apples that continue throughout but there’s floral honey on the backend. Flavor is in stride with the aroma. Not hugely complex, pretty simple actually, but delicious. Fresh musty apples start things off and never fall away. Mid palate the floral aspect of the honey shows up before the sweetness which comes on the finish. There’s a whisper of oak on the swallow that really adds to the flavor. This is a good cyser. Light body with a somewhat dry finish leaving just a touch of residual sugar. Although the body dries you out this is a quenching and satisfying cyser. The drinkability is good for sure. There’s zero hint of alcohol and it goes down far too easily for the abv. I could see myself getting in trouble with this. My second offering from White Winter and they were both very satisfying. Although I’m having this before dinner this would be a great after dinner mead. Pick it up if you get the chance. 11/22/07
