Aroma of sweet green apple wheaty funky and citric, on the muted side though. Appears surprisingly clear and straw colored with sticky lacing. Taste is soft wheaty lactic sour plush mouthfeel. Not too dry definitely citrus resonates.

bhensonb (10970) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 5, 2013
Capped 750 from Wine & Cheese in Clayton, MO. Pours translucent gold with a slight, transient white head. Mild aroma - almost like apple cider. Med + body. Truly the effect is of a lightly tart cider with skins apparent. Thins a bit as the carb leaves. Blind tasting? I’m sure I’d go for cider. And state that it is one of the best ciders ever! Good drink.

Bottle @ Richard’s tasting. Pale golden pour with a white head. Fairly light aroma, but nice tartness, lemon, and apple. Hints of grass, pear, and white grape. Dry, lactic flavor. Lemon, apple skin, and white grape. Notes of grass, straw, and yeast.

An interesting but underwhelming variety. Flavor is tart, of apples and lemon. Very interesting to try, but I wasn’t as excited tasting it as I was reading about it.
