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.

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.

Sampled from the bottle at ABR 2015. Pours a clear very pale yellow with no head whatsoever. Aroma has lots of sweet apple and honey with a touch of dryness supporting. Flavor combines a slightly tart apple with some sweet honey and has a touch of dryness.

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.

Thick full apple aroma is mostly sweet with some lightly browning character and plenty of musky honey. Clear pale body with no legs on the glass. Musky, sweet honey flavour has plenty of floral character. Medium body is quite sticky. Bottle.

[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.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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!

750 ml bottle shared with Capflu, Goldorak, beerbuzzmontreal, Boutip and DumDum at the Ciderwinder tasting in Ottawa. Bit of legs on this very light blonde, still oily glass...honey, alcohol, wood and a touch of peppery sharpness in the nose...sharp flavor of honey, vanilla and charred oak, muted sweet apple...mellow but strong finish.
