750ml Bottle, poured at CiderDays 2012. Tart lemony nose. Strong vinous white wine flavor. Really strong white grape wine flavor in the Riesling/Gewurz/Sylvaner range. And then finishes oversulfited. Kind of rough for cider.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a clear yellow with a white head that dissipates completely and quickly. Aroma has a nice crisp, sweet and tart apple that is well balanced. Flavor starts with sweet apple but finishes with crisp tart apple and a bit of an earthy note.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pale yellow, sparkling, minimal head fades fast, quick swirl brings ton of carb bubbles. Crisp green apple, pear, very clean, none of the normal phenolics. Faint alcohol. Flavor is nice combo of sweet and tart apples, apple skins, pear. Slightly sweet at times. Champagne like carbonation.

Pale, clear yellow color. Tart and honeyish apple aroma. Though it doesn’t look very carbonated, it certainly is, almost to Champagne levels. Dry apple flavor. Slightly tannic. Moderately tart.
