This cider packs a nice punch, plus it has a complex taste and a nice, clean aftertaste. Very drinkable!

A solid classic! Rich vibrant red apple dances with mellow hints of honey. Pretty honey syrup color. Gentle carbonation. Hints of earthy and funky notes. Always solid! Strong 10.5ABV—watch out!

Interesting taste. Oak comes through really nicely backed by a smooth honey taste. Also, get a bit of vanilla as well and just a touch of tartness and alcohol warmth. ABV is well hidden.

Lovely apple and honey notes with a bit of richness which can be difficult to find in an American cider. Well-hidden ABV besides a bit of warmth, so be careful with this one. Complex but simple at the same time. I think its a great value for the price point ($7-8 in my area). Yum!

Oak barrel aged imperial style cider. Honey translates to chalky mouthfeel. Golden pour. High ABV compared to most ciders.

The pour is a clear gold with light effervescence. The aroma is sweet vanilla, flowers, and apple. The taste is semi dry and slightly tart with notes of apple, honey, and vanilla from the oak. The mouthfeel is medium. The finish is medium and slightly astringent.

I’m mixed on this one. It has a slight odor of feline urine. The taste itself is fruity and nutty. In the end it’s well balanced, but maybe a bit too sweet for me.

I had this a year ago and I believe they changed to recipe. This is a mead flavored cider. Too sweet with an overpowering honey flavor. Disappointing

At 10%, this is a strong drink. They will only serve it in a schooner size at Park Pub, and I just today had a half pint at Chuck's. It seems like they've tweaked this brew since I reviewed it a few months ago, but sadly, not at all for the better in my opinion. This cider today had a very sweet flavour upfront that was almost medicinal, and a bitter hit at the end of the swallow. Whatever it is they're trying to do with this one, for this small girl's tastes, they're failing miserably.

This Oregon cider took me by surprise with its tangy biting flavor. Light in carbonation, semi-dry, with a tart finish. Nice cider for tasting bit I don't think I would drink more than one pint of it.
