Theydon_Bois (21872) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JAN 22, 2018
Keg at the 4th Copenhagen Beer Celebration, Session 3, 02/05/2015. Rich amber with a moderate collapsing off white head. Nose is pear drop, spice, dried fruits, grains. Taste comprises wooded notes, herbal, spice, raisins, apple pie, more pear esters. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, drying close with a sweet and spicy climax. Ok cider ... something a little different ... the herbal bite prevents this from becoming too sweet.

luttonm (7087) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 16, 2018
Bottle in Seattle. Big thanks to Chris for sending this our way. Dark, brown color with orange highlights, a few bubbles with the pour. Nice dark mulling spices on the nose, orange peel and a light sweetness. Cool, moderately sweet sip with nice chai spice and deep cinnamon and cardamom mulled wine flavors. Deep fruit. Lightly cloying. Great flavors in good balance.

muzzlehatch (4977) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 26, 2017
500 ml bottle from Valli Produce in Rockford, IL, consumed a few minutes out of the fridge from a White Winter Winery glass. Lovely chestnut-bronze color, clear, bubbly, little evident carbonation when cap is popped and the tiny ring of foam instantly dies...the tea/chai aromatics dominate in the first whiff of the nose, apple and a bit of ginger and vanilla come out eventually; it's a bit reminiscent of the spiced apple ginger ale from Reed's...tingly, spicy on the tongue, here's where the ginger bit really dominates, with a lightly vinous character towards the finish; somewhat more acidic than I'd like, moderately sweet throughout but a little drier at the end...lightly syrupy, little carbonation on the palate. Interesting but not likely something I'll try again.

Ritzn (2188) - GERMANY - JUL 28, 2017
Brown without head. Aroma is chai spices, cinnamon, apfelstrudel, cream. Taste is sweet apfelstrudel as well. A bit unfresh but very very nice. Perfect pie.

3.5
anstei (2832) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - JUL 28, 2017
Bottle. Pours cloudy dark amber. Aroma is cinnamon, chai, ginger, spices. Body is medium, starts a lot like a chai and then turns into apple cider. Dryish tea palate. Odd. Good, but not something I would drink a lot of.
