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.

Bottle thanks a ton to Clownisseur! Pours clear golden, small white fizzy head as expected, no lacing. Aroma is apple, a bit of brandy, some funk, mushroom. Flavor has lots of apple goodness along with some vinous barrel notes and an ever-present note of funky mushrooms. Light sweet with a dry finish. Light body. This is my second BA cider, and the second time I have gotten the (for me) highly undesirable mushroom notes from it. I guess funk and apples don’t mix in my palate.

Bottle, 2012 vintage. Medium golden, fine carbonation. Aroma is very funky, with cooked apples and a touch of vanilla. Lots of barnyard on the palate, moderately sweet apples, touch of vanilla, dry finish. Terrific!
