2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
750mL thanks to Travlr. Clear straw to white. Little white fizz. Champagne carbonation. White grape nose. Minerally and tangy like champagne. Taste is champagne almost exactly. Tannic and watery in the finish. I think this is actually champagne. I hate champagne.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Serving: 750 ml. bottle from Total Wine Sterling. It pours a very light yellow color that quickly settles down to nothing. The nose has brisk apple notes with a little yeast or dust character. The flavor has a nice tart/sweet thing going on with a bit of dustiness and a nice dry finish. Aggressive carbonation. Definitely a nice cider.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
750mL Bottle, poured at CiderDays 2011. Big funky, musty, bright and spicy aroma. Complex and interesting. The flavors brought on more of the same and the overall diversity of the flavor palate was entertaining. There may be a nip too much going on, but I think this is very good work.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a lightly hazy yellow, good level of carbonation evident. Aroma is musky apple, almost a touch of brett present. Flavor is complex apple and musty hay. Hint of dried strawberry on finish. Exceptionally well done, by far the closest American cider I have had compared to French farmhouse ciders.
