_angst_ (3036) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 28, 2014
Draught @ BrewDog Bar Gbg. Pours clear golden with no head. Smell is fruity with golden apples, star fruit, heavy passion fruit, tropical fruit hard candy, dry soil, minerals and lemon peal. Taste is slightly sweet, slightly sour and fruity with sour apples, passion fruit, mango, tropical fruit hard candy, minerals and lemon zest. Mouthfeel is flat, round, slightly tart and light to medium bodied. Finish is tiny sweet and slightly sour with apples, passion fruit, dry soil, minerals and lemon zest. Amazingly fruity but slightly too sweet and uncomplex to get top scores.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5077) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 29, 2014
Sampled on draft at Hou Thou this cider poured a bright golden color with a trace soapy white head that faded and left no lacing. The aroma was tangy honey, apple and was a touch medicinal. The flavor was tangy and sweet apple, bread, a bit of honey and a touch of pepper. Medium length finish. Surprisingly full bodied. Solid.
