3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tasting at Matt’s; 6.7% ABV; bottled Dec 2013, 1.5 years old
Pale color, clear. Nice aroma of sour apples, fresh, citrusy too. Dry mouthfeel, quite sour, a bit astringent, with not much flavor, woody and more astringent final; sour like a Spanish cider but not the same depth.
Nice aroma, flavor in line with US standards (less interesting).

2013 vintage. 650mL bottle, pours a clear pale blonde. Nose brings out medium sweet apples and light crispness. Flavour is quite tangy, with medium acidity and light-to-medium sweet apples. Very tangy and nicely acidic. Very pleasant.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUN 21, 2015 Bottle from Central Market. 10/23/14. Very light pour, clear with almost head but decent effervescence. Apples and dry white wine on the nose. Flavor teases with a hint of sweetness early but it’s super dry from there on out, some apple skins, a bit sour/acidic, again like a dry white wine without the oak that usually accompanies such. OK but not something I’m eager to repeat. 6/3/5/3/13
Revisit 6/20/15Draft at Fiddlers Inn. This time around I sort of enjoy the dry intense white wine character. It’s pretty tasty and I think I was a bit harsh the first time around.7/3/7/3/13=3.3. I’ll bump up slightly.

(22oz bomber thanks to bu11zeye) clear bright gold, good lacing on the glass. Nose is subdued, lightly tart, apple skin. Taste is quite tart, nice varietal of apples, like the taste, but not sure how to describe it beyond that.

Clear very light golden color/ fizzy white head. Ripe yellow apple, spicy sweets, melon aromas. Medium bodied with average co2. Semi dry tart yellow apple flavors with mild sulfer, melon fruit, tangy tart finish--not bad
