COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Bad Apple is a semi-dry, bold cider. Aged with brandy-cured Oregon white oak, the Bad Apple offers complex oak tannins and rich vanilla notes. Hints of sweetness derived from local meadowfoam honey make this a cider to savor.

marcus (7671) - Sacramento, California, USA - AUG 20, 2015
Bottle from Capitol Beer & Tap Room. Pours light golden with a modest white head and an apple and oak aroma. There is an intense apple flavor with some fermented honey and a dry oak finish. An interesting version of cider.

500. Excited for this one, but it was a little TOO big for the style. A little on the sweet side, with light oak, STRONG in yo face apple aroma and flavor.

Mrnoluv (220) - long beach, California, USA - MAY 24, 2015
This should be call sour apple, without the great tart/sweetness to even it out. Great ABV but, not a winner. This one can’t even beat Angry Orchard.

crossovert (9468) - Illinois, USA - MAY 19, 2015
500ml bottle. So I guess a cider backsweetned with honey, it is definitely sweet and boozy,

DSG (8557) - Tel Aviv, - MAR 16, 2015
[2/21/15] Draught at Winter Brew Fest 2015 in San Diego. Clear golden. Sweetish aroma of apples. Great sourish green apples flavor with mild sweetness. Very nice.

Bomber from Whole Foods in Davis, CA. Gold pour with a white smear. Aroma is apple with a very, very slight hint of brandy, if you really inhale deeply. Maybe a touch of oak too. Med body. First flavor is tannic wood and apple skin, but there does seem to be some honey. Why do people put honey in otherwise good stuff? It does have a woody tannic note, and there’s still a light brandy aspect, but that is somewhat spoiled by the honey. Recommendation: No honey and more time with the wood. If it wasn’t for the high ABV, I’d be more negative.

Salmoniform (1229) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - MAR 26, 2014
Poured from bottle to glass. Crystal clear straw hue with fizzy carbonation. Aroma is green apple, sugar, wood, acetic. Mouthfeel is nice with a light body and lighter carbonation. Feels a bit slick. Taste is a mixture of sweet and acidic initially with a slight astringent bitterness in the following and a tart ethanol finish. Overall this is a really nice cider. Tart and semi dry.

michaelinwa (638) - Bothell, Washington, USA - NOV 1, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 8, 2014 Bottle. Mild aroma, strong carbonation. Taste is on the dry side, but some balancing sweet flavor in the background. Seems basic, and maybe this batch isn’t as interesting as what I had last year. I see not reason to try it again.

Ericular (802) - Minnesota, USA - OCT 22, 2013
Pours a clear light gold. Aroma is sweet apple and some wood. Taste is tart green apples up front, into a sticky bitterness in the end. Redeeming quality is the not-so-obvious ABV and overall drinkability.

On draught at 2 Towns Ciderhouse. Crisp clear golden color. Aroma is sweet roasted apple with oak hints. Taste is syrup sweet red apple, intense vanilla, and oak. Finishes with a sweet caramel apple aftertaste.
