Draft at Ginger Man with Linh, Streets and Annie for their engagement! Pours a clear syrupy golden orange body with no lacing or carbonation. Aroma is really nice sweet Apple candy flavor - essentially like melted green apple jolly ranchers. Mouthfeel is pleasant - not too sugary, just the right amount of tart and sour candy. Great cider.

Draft at Fishale. Relatively still, bronze pour with no head. Aroma is big sour apple aroma but not fake. Flavor includes the sour bite but also some meaty apple. Great.

On tap at CCCM. As others have pointed out, this is green-Apple jolly rancher in cider form...which is not a bad thing.

holdenn (2083) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 8, 2014
On tap at Lokal in Miami. Pours a clear orange with no head. The aroma is light some fruity tart notes. Tart juicy fruit flavors. There is definitely some sour apple jolly rancher in there. But that description degrades this beer some because itís not overly sweet or tart and it isnít harsh in the throat. Long apple finish. Tasty.

Tap at shamrock. Gold amber pour not much head thats gone quickly. Visible carbonation. Smells like green apple jolly rancher. Pretty much tastes like the though not quite as sweet. One dimensional but taste really good if thatís what you want.

PorterPounder (5656) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 1, 2014
Tallahassee, Fl. - Growler Country - on tap. Sparkling, medium golden pour, light white head. Flavor has a nice Granny Smith apple sour essence to it, some sweet tart candy sourness, a hint of vanilla sweetness. Nice interesting mixture for a cider. Nice smooth drinking.

Iíll be honest I donít know shit about ciders or meads for the most part. But i had this and thought it was pretty good. The pour in a small snifter was a deep orange amber with no head. The aroma was green apples and honey. A little funkiness as well. The taste was the same with sour green apples, honey, a little yeasty funk, and what seemed to be white grapes. Not bad. A little sweet.

DocJitsu (1031) - Florida, USA - OCT 19, 2014
Pours a clear golden with no head at all. To be expected from a cider. Sliced red apple bouquet. Wet and a little crisp. Fresh apple with the fist pull into the mouth, but turns quickly to a flavor that approximates what rotting apples smell like.
