3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled at the New Amsterdam Market Cider Revival.
Dusty, yellowed, white wine body.
Smell is surpisingly flowery, tart, & honeyish.
Taste is mildly tangy apple wine & waxy skin. Signifigantly yeasty, with a sugary finish.
Mild carbonation & alcohol. Low sulfites. Not quite thin.
Though not quite showcasing my favorite apple, it’s better then several of their other bottles.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle. Pours a crystal clear gold with a large supply of bubbles constantly streaming to the surface. Pleasant aroma of fresh, sweet apples. The flavor is apples. Definitely more sweet than tart but not overdone on the sweetness. Crisp and bright on the palate. Nice!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared with Linh at Peekskill Brewery. Pours a light, clear golden body with no head, very minimal bubbles clinging to the side of my glass. Aroma is crisp apple skins and perfume. Mouthfeel is medium to thin and very crisp, notes of apple skins, juice and perfume. Nice cider overall.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
One of the more tart versions Bellwether makes. Firm acidity and a bit of tannic astringency makes for a crisp beverage.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours fizzy, straw colored liquid. Some sulfur on th e first sip, but that goes away. Drier than most American ciders, but it’s sweeter than the Europen versions. Overall, a very approacable cider.
