3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled at the New Amsterdam Market Cider Revival.
Plastic cup. Clear, spritzy, pale gold body.
Slightly spicy pear scent.
Taste is tart, mildly woody, & floral. Moderate acid, mellow tartness. A dusty/yeasty texture. Noticalbe sulfites. Drying, lightly bitter apple peel finish.
One of their better ciders. Not $18 good, but worth trying again at an uncrowded fest sorta decent.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750mL Bottle poured at CiderDays 2010. Some seaweed, ocean minerals, and oyster liquor amongst fresh apple juice. Surprised to get such a saline character. Mid-yellow. High floral flavor, with a mid-bodied texture. Finishes a bit wild. Lots of saline and seafood notes coming through for me somehow. Nice but a nip bitter for me.

0.75l - Pours beautifully, with light fizz of small bubbles. Typical cider funk nose, a little yeast, a little sulfur. Mildly sour palate, pleasant off-dry flavor. I enjoyed this.
