Conditioned in our Utopian barrels for up to 6 months. Hints of vanilla and coconut from the oak, blend with the apple and honey. A deep rich apple with the hints of bourbon and a smooth honey finish. Clearly something of special worth.

Bottle sample at the source. Clear yellow. Still. Big apple and boozy notes. Vanilla and apple work well with the barrel notes. Slick mouthfeel.

Draft (yes, draft, can you believe it?) at Meridian Pint. Clear golden color, see pic please. Aroma of floral honey, vanilla, burnt caramel, subtle butter during a distant whiff. Taste is rich honey, vanilla, butterscotch. Delicious. Nice to see a mead always rotating through the taplist here.

Bottle. Pours clear and still gold. Aroma is sugary and fresh apples, light honey and straw notes, vanilla and oak. Flavor is sweet apple and honey, straw, oak, coconut, and vanilla with a sweet finish. Full body.

pale yellow. Very tree-fruit, stone fruit, mango aroma. Vanilla sweet finish, some ginger, really interesting. would have a lot of this, would go great with a vanilla cake.

3fourths (9265) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 15, 2013
still, sweet, stack, aged in a bourbon barrel (Buffalo Trace for 18 months with this sample), so it’s very untraditional. the aroma has a strong corn syrup and burnt, sweaty, buttered popcorn character with strong oak / vanillin and hot alcohols. the flavor is more clean, with a rich and sweet honey expression but little bourbon - instead it’s more tannic oak and buttered vanilla. the apples are expressed well enough; muted but noticeable and distinct from the honey. however the diacetyl / theater popcorn butter and spicy ethanol and other higher alcohols make it really difficult to enjoy. plug my nose and I can tolerate it.

obguthr (5918) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - DEC 7, 2012
Honey aroma. Clear pale yellow, frothy. Honey flavor, semi-sweet, no nuance. Thin body. Surprising lack of complexity for a cyser. The label says there is a greater proportion of cider, but the honey dominated everything. Apples aren’t detected, but may serve as a moderating agent to keep it from being cloying. Enjoyable but ordinary.
