650ml bottle shared with my wife. Pours a hazy pale orange-gold with no head. Sweet, tart aroma of apples and cinnamon. Sweet flavour of apples, maple syrup, vanilla, cinnamon and faint yeast with a slightly tart finish. Medium body with a silky smooth texture and flat carbonation. Enjoyable, very tasty. A world class Cider. dwyerpg (8249) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - APR 28, 2018
Definitely has winter spices, maybe nutmeg. I though this was pretty tolerable. Better than most ciders. luttonm (7593) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 4, 2018
Bottle in Seattle. Stumpy little guy. No head, cloudy pale apple juice. Baked apple with cinnamon on nose. Fairly thick sip full of fresh baked apple pie and honey. Incredible amount of mead-like honey with a grand hit of maple on the finish. Balanced spice and cinnamon, utterly like a nice apple pie. Maple flavor and sweetness on finish adds to the syrupy body. This is pretty great. hitemwitthehein (69) - - OCT 31, 2017

.Appearance: Cloudy Brownish gold
.Aroma: Apple sauce, baked apple, honey, spices (cinnamon), vanilla bean
.Taste: Apple Pie filling, baked apples, followed by cinnamon spice, finishes with a dry sweetness, notes of honey and vanilla bean on the backend. Maple syrup is buried in there, just a hint at the very end. **Sweet.
.Mouthfeel: Big body, bold, dry, very soft carbonation.
.This is a perfect cold weather cider in my opinion. Literally tastes like an apple pie. Sweet, but balanced with a good amount of spice. Very nice flavors of honey, vanilla, cinnamon, softened apples, and a small subtle hint of maple syrup towards the finish. Perfect combination of flavors that you might enjoy on a cold winter night. slowrunner77 (18016) - Reno, Nevada, USA - NOV 23, 2016
couldn’t place the sweetness as maple...this seemed to be a lightly barrel aged sweet leaning cider, with hints of spice and vanilla, with any farmhouse character relegated to the background. Unique cider, and a nice seasonal. Drinks big.

Bottle. Cloudy gold. Aroma of maple syrup and vanilla. At first there is a little funk to adjust to. Quite sweet. Vanilla and maple syrup are obvious. Yeah very sweet but i like it. My wife found the amount of sweetness offputting. shrubber85 (13057) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - SEP 24, 2016
Bottle. Cinnamon, maple/vanilla, sour apple, and straw aroma. Golden yellow. Very sweet maple, light cinnamon, apple juice and lightly bitter straw flavor. Nice body. Very sweet but nice. jonno (2750) - WESTERN SAHARA - APR 25, 2016
This is a fantastic, high grade ballistic sweet chop of apples and funk. Rich, bordering on decadent. A nice after dinner drink I would think. A bit like a lighter ice cider. ajm (1072) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 5, 2016
Aroma is textbook apple pie filling: cinnamon, sweet baked apple, vanilla. Everything but the crust. Taste is the same, dominated by browned apple caramel. I think a lot of people would call it too sweet but for me it was like a nice brown cider with color to match. Will have again at holidays. drpimento (5274) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 5, 2016
Geez, I had really high hopes for this one given how good the scrumpy northern gold was. But I’m not picking up the vanilla or maple here at all
