On tap at Chucks on 85th, pours a clear pale blonde with a small white head. Aroma brings out notes of honey and acidic red apples. Flavour is huge, with honey, red apples and intense acidity. Wonderful blend of mead and cider. Finishes acidity and boozy, but in the best of ways. Very good.

Aroma is strong whiskey/liquor and apples. The flavor is whiskey/liquor, apples, tart/sweet in the middle and an alcoholic/slightly burning finish.

vyvvy (6247) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - NOV 28, 2016
It pours dull golden orange with no head. The aroma has rich sweetness which is presumably from apples and honey,, both of which are there. Theres is a distinct booziness asking with oak, vanilla, grainy wood and pears. It has a full slick body with no carbonation and a creamy velvety feel. The taste is very deceptive with the alcohol, just a mere hint on the finish. The gate has honey and rich apples, but there is also a raspberry taste and lots of vanilla, traces of caramel and some peppery spice. Very nicely made.

Can from a Lazy Dog Slightly hazy light golden color with no head, not sure if this is supposed to be carbonated but this can was flat. Sweet syrupy apple with bit of brown sugar and a light woody oak. Pretty decent cider.

On draught.
Pours a pale golden & is basically still.

Teh aroma has some wood & baking spice. Its only lightly sweet smelling and has some light tart apples and a nice honey character.

The flavor is spicy and plesantly sweet. Its got tart apples and a nice bitter apple rind character. The booziness is warming and it gives the mead a sort of brandy like character.

Draft to stemmed wine glass. This is an apple mead, so Im not sure if. It should be categorized as cider (which it currently is) or a mead. Looks good for the style; a transparent gold with some light carbonation that fades fairly quickly after the pour. Some bubbly white lacing as well. Smells solid; a nice mix of tart apples and honey. Tastes like it smells, but richer, with more of a honey presence alongside soft notes of vanilla. Mouthfeel is medium full-bodied and smooth, especially for the abv. Tasty stuff that drinks more like a mead than a cider.

Very tiny bubbles, burnt orange color. No head. Theres a lot of baked apple here. and honestly that 13% ABV is so well hidden. I cant believe its not mead! Very interesting. pear juice, some cherry hidden away and a lot of sweetness. almost cloying but impressively crafted.
