yngwie (15566) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 27, 2008
Bottle. A clear, golden cider producing a small, white head. Ripe apples, canned apples, apple-cellar and some barnyard in the aroma. The flavor is mostly apples, fresh from the three, with some lemon-like sourness. Crisp and dry with apples in the finish. Really pleasant and easy to drink. Almost fresh like apple-juice, still very ciderish. (080823)

MatSciGuy (907) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 18, 2008
[Bottle] Pours VERY pale, almost clear with a head of large bubble. Aroma is pearish, vanilla, slightly sweet, and some vinegar. This stuff explodes in your mouth. The flavor matches, minus the vinegar. Very crisp.

Maria (10191) - Thisted, DENMARK - OCT 16, 2008
The color is beautiful, dark yellow and the head is huge but quickly vanishing. The aroma has a light sweetness and notes of apple and syrup. The flavour has a light sweetness and notes of oven baked apple with syrup. It ends on a dry note and the finish is long in this pleasant cider.
