rumore (378) - Rimini, ITALY - APR 2, 2017
From 33cl bottle. Pours fully transparent canary yellow with very limited and not persistent foam. Aroma is fruity, though the apple character is not so strong. The influence of whisky barrel aging is not so evident. Body is medium-light, very low carbonation. Taste is definitely sweet, with a pleasant bitterish feeling in the final, which is still rather short.

Mishnok (242) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2017
From 330ml bottle. Pours straw yellow with some lively carbonation, but no head. You do get a hint of whisky in the aroma. A sweet tasting cider, pleasant refreshing palate of ripe apple and a hint of whisky. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sweet apples, straw, very light whiskey. Clear gold, hardly any head. Light bitter. More sweet apples, molasses, lively carbonation, medium bodied, some more whiskey notes in the finish. Interesting Cider, the whisky notes could be more pronounced though. Bottle at Burger & Lobster, Canary Wharf.

MelvinKalksma (1414) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 14, 2016

Medium aroma of malts, caramel, honey, vanilla and apple.

Clear pale yellow beer with no/a slight white head.

Medium/heavy sweet with malts, caramel, honey, vanilla and apple.

This beer is rather intense, complex and balanced. How can the appearance be more clear than water, it looks like there is not even anything in the glass. The aroma and flavour are superb for a Cider however, probably thanks to that whiskey barrel.
