I reviewed this in 2017 in my earlier reviewer incarnation, but I feel compelled to review it again. My original review was of a cider that was much better than what I’ve gotten on draft, today. Todays has a strong vanilla flavour but wwwaaayyyy too sweet for my liking. The vanilla flavor over powers the apple and tastes artificial to me. Either my taste buds were on drugs last time I had this, in 2017, or the blend has degraded a lot since that time.

A dessert cider, nice mouth-feel, strong vanilla flavor, clean finish. After-dinner only.

Sooooo yummy! Light fruit taste but medium body. You can taste the fullness. Barely sweet and still for sure. Loving it!

Have you ever debated between having a cider and a cream soda? If so, this is you, the cider that tastes like cream soda!

I was skeptical of a vanilla cider but I shouldn't have been- this is an excellent drink. Kinda like apple pie meets ice cream. A nice blend of apples, perhaps a little strong on the vanilla but still very tasty. I would definitely drink often

What Dave said. AND I have to say that this is smooth, delicious and it's flavors are well integrated. A bit like a vanilla caramel apple, but not at all too sweet.

Only gave it 3 stars because I thought it could of had a better vanilla taste. It’s super smooth, would buy if it was in tap at a bar.

I saw the vanilla bean name and was I dubious. I’m used to a apple or fruit blended cider, so when I tasted this one I wondered how the vanilla flavor would work. Well I was shocked to taste the rich full bodied flavor that the vanilla gave the cider. It added multi-dimensional levels to the cider. I loved it. My favorite cider so far.

Very sweet. Tastes the way vanilla extract smells.

Tastes like vanilla cream soda or melted vanilla bean ice cream. The vanilla is overpowering, and makes it seem like this is not even a cider. It is impressive that one can put this much vanilla into an alcoholic drink. Wonder how it would be as a sorbet.

Even a taster was too much- too sweet, no fruit, and tastes like cream soda.

Clear yellow pour with very light carbonation. Light aroma of vanilla. Taste has an interesting cream soda like flavor that has a strong vanilla presence and light, almost hidden apple flavor. Light bodied and drinks very easy.

Bottle pour at their tasting room. I LOVED the flavor (vanilla creamsicle with hints of citrus & pineapple), but it was too sweet to have a significant amount of. The bartender said she likes it mixed with their berry ciders.
