4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours clear golden with a large white head that disappears immediately...loads of bubbles...very lively! Aroma has very nice funk and oak, a touch of white wine, and nice apple and brandy sweetness peeking through. The flavor leads with mildly sweet brandy and apples that subtley give way to oak, leather, vinous and funky notes...very faint band aid creeps in. What an awesome cider!
