Cigar City Cider and Mead Homemade Apple Pie Cider
Cans from New Beer Distributors. Stemless wine glass. Clear, pale gold, lacquered sheen. Smell is offensively strong. Some weird, buttery toffee scent. Taste is faintly tart & saucy, but largely obliterated by this sugary vanilla, fake "natural flavor" pie crust mess.

Cigar City Cider and Mead Stout Barrel Aged Moose Blood
500 mL bottle share by Gus at The Spicetree Trimpeel Grand Opening. The pour is a deep reddish ruby color with a lack of head and a couple legs of lace. The aroma is surprisingly boozy. There isn’t hefty alcohol. The cherry is nice and the vanilla. Honey is present as well as a nice oakiness. The flavor is good. Nice cherry fruitiness. There is a lovely vanilla and a good oaky barrel character. The mouth feel is light and syrupy with a nice barrel and fruitiness with a hint of vanilla andna quality oak. Solid.

Cigar City Cider and Mead Homemade Apple Pie Cider
Tap. Smells honest to gosh apple pie, with cooked apples, dough, sugar and cinnamon all present. Head is small, and quickly and completely diminishing, with no lacing. Color is sparkling clear straw. Flavor starts lightly to moderately sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly sweet and acidic. Palate is light to medium, watery with a lively carbonation. A great representation of a well crafted Cider, but not my kinda drink.

Cigar City Cider and Mead Moose Blood - Bourbon Barrel Aged
Pours cherry red with no head. Aroma is sweet bourbon and oak - beautiful full bodied aroma. Taste is initially vanilla-oak, then bourbon in all of its glory. The bourbon flavor just kinda fades out at the finish, leaving a hint of cherry. Honey takes a supporting role in this one. A really pleasant and warm bourbon barrel Viking blood style mead!

Cigar City Cider and Mead San Juan Hail
Pours bright yellow-gold with a minimal white head and some decent lacing. Aroma is honey and habaneros. Taste is initially sweet followed by that distinct habanero flavor. Then comes a nice grainy-meady-crusty flavor with some faint warmth for the finish. Nice, considering also that I’m at the meadery-cidery in Ybor City which was Theodore Roosevelt’s old horse stable, The Devil Makes Three is on the sound system and Hurricane Matthew is swirling around outside. These factors may influence my score! Ambiance counts, right?
