MicroGrog (303) - FT: Stale Polotmavý in Queens, New York, USA - DEC 26, 2012

Sampled at the New Amsterdam Market Cider Revival.
Dusty, faded yellow color. Quick splash of suds.
Smells a bit briney, w/ lots of acidy skin. Yeasty, w/ an odd stuffiness.
Taste is skin, spent yeast, & chalky flesh. Strong acid. Faintly veggie.
Lightly tart, pithy finish. Itchy feel & forced carbonation.
Not a fan of these guys. Inoffensive, but they all seem watered down or just plain old.

750mL Bottle, poured at CiderDays 2012. Electric spice and leather. A real musky black cardamon-like sensation. Very funky throughout. The bitterness of the apples is interesting and punches out the finish nicely. Waxy mid-palate. Nice bubbles.

Bottle. Clear amber body with nice head. I thought this was the best of the Bellwehter Ciders. Surprisingly a little complex on the palate. Slightly dry with a nice tartness to it.
