COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The fall harvest brings farmers and communities together to celebrate another year of fruitful labor. It is a time of shorter days, cooler nights, and great apples. This cider has a complex and elegant character full of apple, cinnamon, and nutmeg balanced out with a hint of American white oak. A true taste of the season.

Aggressive pour leads to a weak head that fades quickly to light carbonation. Very attractive dark brown with hints of amber in the glass. Aroma is pleasant and spicy at first, but I cant shake the impression of bubblegum here. The first sip is a baffling mix of spices that fades to a lingering bubblegum taste once again... it reminds me of biting into a crisp candied apple with a fresh stick of bubblegum in my mouth. I would have enjoyed it much more if the spices were toned down a bit.

Aroma is cinnamon and apples. Pours a a clear golden color. The taste is primarily cinnamon…with hints of apple. Overall, not my favorite hard cider. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft - pours pale yellowish amber with no head. Nose is bubble gum. Flavor adds ginger and spices. Wow, its like a holiday candle dripped into my mouth. Not going to try this ever again. Interesting, but overboard on the spices. Mmm cloves.

Pours a nice clear orange color with a small white head. Really rich nutmeg and cinnamon aromas. Apple sweetness and apple juice with a touch of sugar. Maybe a bit of vanilla, too. The flavor has an apple pie flavor to it. Really great spice of cinnamon and nutmeg. Lots of apples and fruit sweetness. I really liked this.

This is one well done cider! Tthe aroma of spices draws you in, then the first taste, that slightly dry sweetness cuts your thirst so well you will want to down it quick, but you want to make the flavor last. Nice combination of flavors, not a bit of sticky sweet or bitter aftertaste, just clean crisp. The aroma brings back thoughts drinking wassail at Yuletide.

PorterPounder (7544) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 3, 2012
Tallahassee, Fl - Market Square Liquors - 12 oz bottle. Sparkling medium golden pour, quickly fading bubbly white head. Pleasant aroma with plenty of Christmas-like spices. Flavor has a pleasant background of cinnamon and nutmeg blending in nicely with the apple notes. Very flavorful and refreshing and would probably taste good heated up like Waisal. Crisp, clean mouthfeel. One of the better macro ciders I have had.

Fruity and delicious... was this tart drinker fuggin. The body had no head, but a nice golden color to it with light bubbles about. Fuggin ahhhh. It smelled like an cinnamon strudel with a hint of a breezy fall morning. The taste was tart of apples and caramel with a hint of dry cinnamon. Insanely drinkable, this one is, and a nice offering to the changing season.

Bottle. Spiced cider aroma... apple, cinnamon, nutmeg.. almost smells like pumpkin pie. Light golden amber, no head. Cinnamon, nutmeg, apple and oak flavor. Light crisp body. Im a sucker for the warm taste and feel of fall seasonal spices, so I like this a lot. All I need is a bonfire.

rbrazell (1698) - Florida, USA - AUG 27, 2012
Draft at Momo's Tennessee St. Light amber pour and no head. Nose is sugary cinnamon apples, potpourri and a weird medicinal character. Flavor is sweet, lightly spiced apples and a moderately dry finish. Light body and low carbonation. Not terrible.

arminjewell (9411) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - AUG 25, 2012
Pour out of 12 oz bottle at Art and Ale festival, clear orange with thin to no white head, aroma has notes of sweet apple, caramel, lots of spice that lends almost a trashy smell, slight oak actually comes through. Taste is spice, trash, some caramel, apple notes, finishing sweet. A bit too overdone but not a terrible attempt.
