Info: In well-made examples of the style, the fruit is both distinctive and well-incorporated into the honey-sweet-acid-tannin-alcohol balance of the mead. Some of the best strong examples have the taste and aroma of an aged Calvados (apple brandy from northern France), while subtle, dry versions can taste similar to many fine white wines.

Commercial Examples: White Winter Cyser, Rabbit’s Foot Apple Cyser, Long Island Meadery Apple Cyser.
