2.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 11/20
Musty, slightly funky overripe apple aroma. Crystal clear pale yellow, no visible carbonation.Stingingly sour and considerably dry apple flavor. Fizzy. Not for me.

Bottle sample at the source. Clear golden yellow color, still. Nice aroma of earthy apple skins. Taste is earthy, minerally, fruity. Very tasty.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sadly this is probably my least favorite of the Albemarle ciders, and I really wanted to like it due to fond memories of eating Winesaps as a kid. Poured a light yellow, clear. Aroma is lightly sweet apple and apple skins. Flavor matches, with a bit of apple seed bitterness on the finish. Could be good in a blend, but just didn’t hit it on its own for me.

Bottle @ Albemarle Ciderworks. Very pale yellow. Light crisp around on the sweeter side with a hint of tartness. Bigger tart flavor, but not so aggressive carbonation.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
The most unique of the Albemarle Ciderworks ciders. Tart and slightly sweet, more apple-y than their others, with a very slightly spiciness as of apple skins.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Capped 750 mL bottle from Wine Warehouse in Charlottesville, VA. Pours a crystal clear vibrant light golden color. Thin white head that quickly fades. Aroma of earthy and tart apples. The taste is tart apples, earthy notes and then an even more tart finish. Medium bodied. Very tart overall, but still a good cider.
