3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled in between sessions at The-Festval in Worcester, MA. 6%abv edition.
Mellow yellow, white wine sort of color. Just a touch of haze.
Husky, perry-ish florals, soapy scent.
Tastes is hay & core. White grapes. Mellow, minerally flesh, & soft tannins.
Solid acid, shy tartness, Just a peep of ugly alcohol. Moderate sulfites. Spritzy.
Not my favorite on the table that day. Needs a revisit.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared by rschnake...thanks Rob! - Pours clear golden with a thin bubbly ring of white head. Nose is sweet apple skins, real pungent with a touch of baking spice. Taste is about the same, though the apples have a bit more bitterness to it. Sweet up front, with the bitterness coming through on the finish. Slick and medium bodied, with little carbonation.

Draft at Churchkey. Really a delicious cider, that tastes frighteningly just like apple juice. I dont think I actually buy that this is 10%, but I suppose its possible. Great sweet apple flesh, touches of tannic skin dryness. Yummy.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap as AeppelTreow Kinglet Cider (although listed as 5.8%) at Beer Revolution. Pours with a clear golden yellow body with minimal signs of carbonation. Some legs. Aroma is a bit corky and a touch sweet. Light sulfur, cantaloupe, caramelized apple character. Flavors are light to medium sweet and very well balanced by tannin and a medium-strong acidity. Just a hint of effervescence (really minimal). Tastes bigger than listed at the bar, but not 10% (maybe 7.5%). Medium to slightly syrupy bodied. Overall very well balanced.
