Sampled from "Medium English Cider" bottle at State Line. The pour was standard color and bubbly appearance, wasn’t expecting much. The aroma was apples, light spices and mustiness. The flavor was apples, spices, some oak, and some farmhouse elements, the latter which were quite welcomed. I’m learning that I can dig some ciders if they have some musty funky notes in them. Mouthfeel was dry, smooth. Good stuff, and thanks to Robert for this tasting!

Bottle enjoyed at Le Cave Du Vin in Cleveland. Clear champagne like pour with plenty of carbonation to match. Funky apple barn notes under the apple cider dominance in the aroma. Cider barn pressings kept coming to mind. Plenty of clean apple flavors with a touch of hard alcohol. Cinnamon and and a very enjoyable level of sweetness. Quenching and warming. Jen and I both enjoyed this.

smells a tad funky, the taste is sweet and flavorful with apples and sweet water. Its nicely fizz and very drinkable.

UPDATED: JAN 16, 2009 The aroma is like wild yeast and apples with a light funky and musty smell. The appearance is light gold with no head. The flavor is tart and sweet with some funkiness. The palate is think but OK for a cider. Not the best for a cider.

pours a simple apple juice clone ... very spritzy and extremely refreshing .. pure cider, a little champagne-y ... quite dry ... medium sweetness... pretty good..

light yellow with a great carbonation.aroma is similar to the dry but a hint of sweetness is present. great fizzy mouthfeel. sweet apple flavor with a hint of vinegar. nice finish with a just enough dryness. alcohol is nicely worked in.

BlackDonald (1126) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 9, 2008
Tart sour apple nose, fleshy, with a earth flavor that has that apple skin texture. A little more carbonation than the last, but very earthy and has a little more apple flavor. Still not one of the better ciders I have ever tried and not something I would pick up again.

500 mL bottle purchased at the Davis Food Co-Op. Aroma has some lightly tart apple aromas along with some mustiness present. A bit perfume-like. Some mineral notes are also there. Pours a transparent pale straw color with a lively bubbly white head that dissipates very quickly. Very prickly and carbonated to start. Some sweet hints are present in there, but there is also a good deal of mineral flavors as well. Of course, this is followed by apple flavor. There is an uneasy ethanolic harshness mid-late. Finishes with more apple. Medium dryness is accurate. I don’t know, this just doesn’t float my boat.

Bottle. Pours a pale golden color with a small white head and minimal lacing. Light sweet apple aroma. Flavor is sweet apple tartness with soft carbonation and a touch of honey. Light to medium body with a dry finish. A decent cider

50 cl bottle; BBE May 08. Very strongly attached crown cap. Light apple aromas with a touch of apple vinegar. Very pale golden color. Near medium body with fizzy carbonation. The flavor is slightly cooked apple with a touch of darkish apple skin. There’s also "fresh" apple juice. Good balance between sweet and dry. Finishes a tad tart. The sour seems to have been a passing phenomena. It is going very well with spicey food.
