Wasn’t sure what to expext. The taste is sort of mature apple with a definite wine component. Caramel and toffee notes. Very enjoyable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750 ml. Hazy golden body is active and supports a lasting disc of cream on top. Aromas of spicy-tart apple, white wine and light oak. Tastes of earthy oxidized lightly tart apple, white grape must, lemon, a hint of berry and a finish of toasted oak. Light body is highly carbonated and astringently dry.

bottle. deep golden with small head. tart and dry apple flavor. slight woodiness. i really liked the iceman variety, but this is a bit disappointing in comparison. flavor seems a little muted, and what’s there reminds me too much of wine.

Rich bronze amber body, ok head. Soft apple juice nose with some baked apple contributing a bit of depth and with some tartness trailing at the rear. Sparkling body. Feint apple. Quite champagne-like. Softly tart and dry finish with some feint woodiness.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from Bel-Air. Somewhat faint apple aroma. Light oak woodiness is also present. Light metal. Transparent, attractive orange body with a medium white head, which is pretty strong. Starts with some tart apple flavor, and virtually no sweetness. Becomes extremely bitter in the middle. Super astringent with olive juice flavors. Lingering alcohol. Ridiculously bitter and harsh. Not enjoyable at all.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
From 22oz bottle to lager glass. Pour is a light transparent yellow, very carbonated with a dissipating head. Nose is apples, has the slight Aron of a Sauvignon blanc. Taste is sweet, light bodied. Decent beer, however the tradition in this is admirable, something that shouldn’t be lost in this industry.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
(bottle - corked & caged 750 ml) Deep orange pour with a soapy white head. Rich and tart apple aroma with some sweet vanilla and oak notes. Flavor is a very dry and natural tasting apple flavor without that heavy sweetness that most ciders have. Slightly earthy and a bit funky at the finish with a light aftertaste of apples. I much prefer a more dry and traditional cider.

Pours coppery gold with a medium off white head. Aroma is sour and slightly funky fermented apple. Taste is definite vinegar up front with a sour apple cider vinegar finish. Hmmm.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours golden with pretty bubbles and a very thin light tan head. Nose is apple, grape, lemon, lime, rather chardonnay, with a oaky undertone, apple aftertaste, a faint bit of tobacco and leather. Thin, a little oily. Alcohol rushes flavors out. Not bad, not sure it replaces wine or beer, I’m not really sure what to do with this.
