As far as hard ciders go this is one of the best. Chai tea lightens the whole thing up and adds a touch of cinnamon without the fakeness that comes with adding actual cinnamon flavor. This is one of my favorites from b Nektar

Ritzn (1812) - 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 (2610) - 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.

2.4
FinnIckler (899) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 28, 2017
Bottle. pours brown tea colored. Smells like chai tea, no apple. Tastes like carbonated chai tea, some apple. These flavours mix very poorly for my taste.

jookos (7044) - FINLAND - MAY 26, 2017
Mbcc red. Light brown. Bruised apples on nose. Bit overripe autumny sweet. Med bodied, quite easy, light watery flavour. Nice. Not as nice as the apple pie tho.

3.2
DocLock (11048) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 21, 2017
Bottle from Wegmans, and I am rating this one blind, as I do not want my love of or dopplegangilarity to Jeff Bridges in The Big Lebowski to influence my rating in any way. And away we go: The cap pops loudly with heavy froth and circumstance (Cue Macho Man Randy Savage). Nose is like apple pie in a glass, with more spices, clove, ginger, raisin. Tastes like a really spiced up cider, with too much cloves, cinnamon, and raisin, dude! Still. this is much better than those apple wines they whip out every holiday season.

3.9
olsvammel (7289) - Örebro, SWEDEN - MAY 17, 2017
Sample at MBCC 2017. Spicy and fruity with apples and cinnamon. Similar taste. Feels christmasy. Sweet. No carbonation. Made me think of ’glögg’.
