3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear, pale yellow. Strong honey aroma, slightly tart and nicely herbal, almost grassy comprising a strong applesauce component. Tart and very sweet at the same time which make it overall enjoyable. It evolves rapidly into a very skinny bitterness (pear skin?). Very sweet, medium oily palate, alcoholic and pleasant.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
My first Cyser. The aroma from this clear bodied pale yellow drink is that of waxed apple skins, grasses, and honey. The actual fruit becomes more recognizable in ths flavor. The apple is slightly tart, the grassiness becomes more herbal, the honey becomes more pronounced, and the alcohol makes itself known. The finish is semi-dry and lightly metallic. Interesting.

During May ’07 brewpub tour, stopped at the winery in Iron River, WI. Pours a light clear, green apple wine with some light green highlights. Aroma has scents of earthy herbs, grass, some sour apple and a touch of honey. Taste is light sour apples, pears, and honey with a touch of pepper. Finish is semi-sweet and floral/apple aftertaste.

Bottle: Poured a still deep yellow color cider with sweetness easily detectable in the aroma. Average body with sweet taste probably due to the mix of mead in this cider. Very enjoyable. Thanks to Muzzlehatch for this fine treat.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light golden color. Apple, mild baking spice and honey comb aromas. Apples and a dry mold hint in the flavor. An interesting cyser. But somehow the apple skins seem to be in there.

The apples are dominant in this mead. Much like a cider. This is light and had some carbonation. Taste and aroma of fruit.
