Bottle @ The Festival 2014. Clear pale yellow pour with white foam and a decent amount of carbonation. Has a bit of a vanilla and sweet fruit nose to it good acidity, though. Hints of citrus zest and yeast, too. Flavor is well balanced, but maybe a bit more on the acidic side than I would have liked. Still, it’s a pleasant cider. Lots of apple character, both sweet and tart.

"a little tartness and an ever so slight hint of funk add another layer to this crisp and pleasantly refreshing, yet flavorful cider. there’s also a hint of spice in the aroma especially, though subtle. Nicely done."

fidelis83 (2005) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - FEB 10, 2014
Greenish yellow gold pour with a small, quickly fading clear layer of bubbles. Aroma is tart apple, fruity and light doughy yeast, a hint of booziness and wax lips candy. Flavor is sweet apple up front, some nice sweet floral notes, a little tart apple then some dusty minerality, hints of berry fruit and light oily booziness to the finish. Light body with a light, but spritzy and blanketing carbonation, juicy then slightly dry feel. Good stuff overall, maybe a little messy with the booziness and doughy yeast, but still quite enjoyable.

CanIHave4Beers (3362) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - NOV 29, 2013
Offers a very clear pale golden color with a quicker than champagne rise and fall head, a few tiny bubbles are offered.

The aroma is cool, apple-y, a little boozy, some clay… no spoiled meat.

Flavor is lightly sweet, a touch too boozy as well. It tastes a little like cheap white wine… which I’m not one to criticize but it’s what Charles Shaw is for… amIrite? It’s got a decent apple flavor and finishes dry. It’s got some good minerallity.

Pretty decent.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 26, 2013
At ĘppelTreow’s tasting barn. Hazed straw yellow with no head. Aroma of apples, tannins and spices. Taste is spicy with apples, tannins spices with a tart dry finish.

Travlr (13511) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 1, 2013
Government shutdown beverege #3, thank you Congress. Hazy light straw color. Aroma of fresh apple flesh and dried apple skins. Taste is light applesauce. Simpler and cleaner than a House floor speech.

crossovert (7977) - Illinois, USA - JUL 16, 2013
Not a bad cider, rotten apples, crisp flavor, not super sweet, definitely not like mass-produces stuff.

deyholla (7024) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 24, 2013
Sampled at the 2013 Chicago Cider Summit. Pours a clear pale gold with a white head that starts and remains at the edges. Aroma has a nice dry apple note with a touch of tartness and a bit of sweetness. Flavor is dry as well with mainly tart apples.

Tap at Town Hall. Very clear and pale yellow pour with zero head. Very nice tart apple nose and taste. I’m a fan - this is good.

A pretty good cider. Not very interesting to look at, but has pleasant apple flavour and aroma. Taste like real apples, not "candy". Okay.
