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.

Bottle. Poured light pale color with a minimall head that diminished quickly with minimal lacing. Light sweet apple aroma. Light body with a thin texture and soft carbonation. Flavor of tart apple with a light sweet finish of short duration. Went well with my soup and salad.

better than average cider, but not quite worth the premium coin. more sweet than tart with hints of yeast. semi-dry and adequately refreshing. Better than the organic head to head.

Tap at Bangers and Lace in Chicago. Very tart green apple in this - super tasty. Very nice cider.

phaleslu (9255) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 21, 2009
Bottle from Keller’s IGA. Pours a clear, pale yellow gold that looks like a sparkling wine with active carbonation and no head. Aroma is fresh apples and yeast. Flavor is also apples and yeast. Tart and dry, but not too much of either. Sweet, crisp, and refreshing. Dry finish. Reminded me of champagne in appearance and palate.

Bottle sample at home from notes. Pours a clear bright yellow gold color with no head. The aroma and flavor have pretty much what I was expecting; sweet apple cider, this comes off with more fresh apple character than most, mild tang, some dry character, Not my thing.

BMan1113VR (7914) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 22, 2009
Bottle. Pours with a pale, slight green tinged body with a quick to fade white head. Aroma is minimal, with dry apples, tannins and newspapers. Taste is medium sweet with a neutral apple flavor up front. Midway through there is a note of bitter apple (mild though), and the finish is somewhat sweet. Taste is a bit like sweetened champagne. Lively carbonation with a good cider mouthfeel. Not cloying, which I feared. Actually a pretty enjoyable cider (despite the lower rating).

Draft. Clear pale gold. Light sweet apple with a hint of tartness, medium acidity, and a dry finish. Very drinkable.
