COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Traditional Dry cider is made in the style of English draft ciders. This cider is bittersweet and slightly spicy with a bright apple aroma. The dryness makes you pucker and look forward to another sip.

Bottle from Costplus. Dry apple aroma with some yeastiness. Yeasty and tart. Somewhat like a hefe. Not super sweet. Decent cider.

Bottle, this cider poured a clear gold - little darker than most of the ciders I had tried, it made a quick disappearing white head that went to a thin ring at the edges of the glass, there was a slow moving center stream of bubbles in the glass, there was no lacing, just tiny spots of bubbles hanging on the glass, the aromas were apples, aged apple, a little wood? apple cider, a little apple fruit sweetness, this cider had flavors of apple cider and applesauce with apple cider sweetness, it had more sweetness than I expected, the start of the drink starts sweet and ends mostly dry, the mouth feel was light with average to lively carbonation, some crispness on the palate, I enjoyed this drink.

Bottled. Poured crystal-clear, bright golden with no head sticking around. The aroma picked up tart apple skins and lightly-spicy yeast with apple meat beneath.. fresh and fragrant. The flavor found tart apple skins and oak on the tip of the tongue, with meatier apple beneath.. dry on the edges, with floral and spicy accents.. sweet and tart apple skins and a pinch of earthy spice on the crisp, refreshing finish. Light-medium bodied and engaging on the palate.. seemed like it wanted to be too sweet at a few points, but crisp dryness always pulled it back.. nice one.

I figured this stuff would be Woodchuck by another name but it actually tastes like real cider. Decent apple aroma w/ a slight floral note. Just slightly sweet with a good balancing tartness and a bit of spiciness in the finish. Pretty tasty.

The best way to describe this cider is tart. The sweetness from the apples is counterbalanced by tart French apples (as described to me at the tasting), offering a cider that truly will make you pucker.

Clear light yellow our with faint offwhite head clinging to the edges of the glass. Nose is not bad, like apple juice and flowers. Flavor is more like a granny smith apple, a bitter/tart bite that balances out the sweetness. I think I like this one more than the original, but not as much as the ginger.

Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - SEP 22, 2012
THOUGHTS: Very nice and fairly dry. Lots of apple flavor that seemed very natural and not at all artificial. Nice balance between sweet and tart. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a sparkling, clear, light, golden with beautiful carbonation and a small, white head that pretty much fully diminished and left surprisingly fair lacing. The aroma had apple, apple desserts, apple juice, apple skins, and a little spice. The initial flavor was lightly sweet and acidic, and light to moderately sour; while the finish was lightly acidic and moderate to heavily sour, but in a tart way with a duration that was average on flavor and long on dryness. There was apple juice, apples, apple desserts, a little spice, apple skin and apple cobbler. The light body was dry with fizzy carbonation a dry and lightly asrtingent finsh.

Meh...a run of the mill cider. Aroma was a tad musty with muted apple aroma. Pour was a bright lively medium gold with no head or bubbles. Taste was, again, muted flat apple. Light carbonation. Would like a more crisp apple flavor, but it’s not bad.

Pours a dark golden color with a short lived white head. Sweet apples on the nose, a light spiciness, sweet sugar and a hint of yeast. Not really all that dry, though. The flavor is nicely sweet with a lot of apple and apple juice flavor. Not dry, but a nice flavor to it.
