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

jookos (6743) - 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.

DocLock (10659) - 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.

A brown cider with no head. The aroma has notes of apples, cinnamon, and herbs. The flavor is sweet with notes of cinnamon, apples, and caramel, leading to a dry finish

rdixon77 (2766) - Georgia, USA - MAY 7, 2017
Man the Big Lebowski has staying power. Nice beverage, man. Ginger and cinnamon spices over a smooth tart and sweet apple body, interesting tasty cider.

3.4
Palme (4780) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 4, 2017
0.5l bottle. This is a cloudy looking light brown colored one, not much of a head. It smells really nice, interesting and different. Spicy with ginger, cinnamon, lemon zest, herbal products and it’s all in all a really complex and nice nose on this one. Hmm.. That’s definitely something else! Really spiced up, but not too much either. Herbal and spicy, it’s both sweet yet not sweet. The tea shines more through in the taste I think. There’s red apples and a little bit of honey also. Surprisingly soft, near flat on the carbonation and it’s thin oily in the mouth. Really flavorful and complex indeed. Not sure about the name though... 18.04.2015
