This ended up being a good combo of thich and sweet. The other noticable occurance was the yeast was active for a long time, from what I can tell. It was over 6 months before it all started dying down.

I also need to better mark the bottles. I seem to remember making something else with apple cider and honey. That'd mean I have 3 types but for marking them, I wrote things like M, A on the corks, which seem to be obvious except I should have maple, the apple and ancient orange. Then I have some corks with a skull and crossbones mark.
