Tried on tap at the Locust Cider tap room in Woodinville WA. They fermented it with apple rings that had been smoked on alder. I was told this batch had less smoke than some previous ones. I definitely would have liked more smoke (as a point of reference I LOVE Alpenfire Smoke), as it only had a hint of smoke flavor. This was way sweeter than I was expecting too. Overall I enjoyed it though, with its maple flavor with hints of honey and alder wood. Very apple forward. With more smoke and less sweetness it would have been amazing though. Bittersweet Reserve remains my favorite from them.
