Draft at Churchkey. Clear honey colored pour with minimal bubbly head. Nose and flavor bring gorgeous tart apple skins, hints of oak tannin, funk, cheesecloth, and apple juice. Flavor brings a touch less acidity and bite, but still that amazing complex real apple skin character. Clean, refreshing, and ridiculously clean for 7%; I can’t even imagine the volume I could drink were it cheaper. Fantastic.

Thanks to errl for sharing this bottle. Golden pour. The aroma has a lot of apple brandy notes as well as some maple and vanilla. The flavor is more of the same with some barnyard funk notes. Medium mouthfeel. Nice cider.

Outstanding - aroma, taste superlative, reminded me more of a fine brut champagne but more flavorful. Great paired with pork or fish

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!

750ml bottle 7.5% from TheDrinkShop.com. 2011 harvest. 0713. Pours a sparkling bright golden colour with a shortlived fizzy white foam head. Nice & complex aroma with apple, wood, honey, funk, syrup, vanilla, oak. Taste is well balanced and with depth, sweetish tangy apple, woody oak, barnyard funk, vanilla, fruit & honey, bittersweet, sour & dry tannins. Smooth and slightly oily mouthfeel, medium bodied, soft to medium carbonation, dry oaky finish. Very drinkable, lovely stuff.

mcberko (5919) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 8, 2014
750mL bottle, pours a cloudy opaque yellow with a medium quickly-dissipating white head - loads of bubbles. Aroma is very complex, full of oak, wood, apples, almost some horse blanket, and some lovely residual sugars. Flavour is identical, with loads of apples, oak, some funkiness, and great residual sugars. Finishes on notes of oak, funk and sweetness. Loads of carbonation, but the intensity fits well, bringing out the complexity to its full potential. Most wonderful.

Bottle corked and caged. Poured clear golden color with a minimal white head that diminished quickly with minimal lacing. Moderate to heavy aroma of green apple and wood. Light to medium body with a smooth texture and lively carbonation. Light sweet apple flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations were met.
