2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Frederick wine. Pours apple colored with very little head and without a ton of carbonation. A slight apple twinge in the nose. Taste is a little sweeter than expected. (shockingly it tastes like apples.). Thereís some dryness in the finish to prevent it from becoming to cloying. I donít thnk the folks in Boston are going to take over the world with this one but its a solid example of the style.

Dull, medium sweet, mellow, half-baked apple aroma. Good, funny label. Clear, medium light gold, filmy white head. Fairly crisp and sour, moderately apple-astringent. Medium body, low carbonation. New Leaf Market.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
5/2/12. 12oz bottle. Clear dark golden pour, much like apple juice, with a small, fizzy off-white head thatís gone instantly. Tart, dusty apple aroma with a ton of yeast. Surprisingly sweet and slightly tart apple flavor, again with a big almost dirty yeast presence. Not that dry and not that great.

Bottle at the Casanova Beer Cave festival. Light golden pour. Seems like a combo of apple cider and a dry wine. Pretty tasty.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Wegmans Leesburg. It pours a clear deep gold color with a small white ring around the edge of the glass. The nose is commercial apple juice, slight earth, and cheese notes. The flavor starts rather sweet and then slightly tart, finishing slightly sweet and earthy. Light to medium body with average carbonation. The shifts in flavor are rather jarring making it a little unpleasant to drink. Not my favorite for sure.
