750 ml. Bottle. It pours a clear, effervescent golden color with a white head. The aroma is a bit mild with some sweet red apple and hints of caramel. The flavor is similarly sweet with good apple flavor and just a hint of fruity tartness. No funk or farmhouse character sadly. Tastes pretty much like apple juice to me. I’d be disappointed, but this was dirt cheap at $6.50 a bottle.

(750ml bottle) Pours a dark golden body with a medium off-white head. Aroma of caramel, apple, bandage, and barnyard. Flavor of apple, light band-aid, caramel, and some minerals with a dry finish.

bhensonb (12952) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 16, 2014
Bottle from Berkeley Bowl West. Pours gold with a large foamy white head. Aroma is fruity apple. Fruit beyond apple. Hints of spice. Marvelous aroma. Med body, almost. Flavor is ages appleskin, with lightly spicey notes. Finishes towards dry with a little spicy sugar. Delicate. Tasty. Stands up to Normandy ciders.

jhamp9 (1386) - Corinth, Texas, USA - JUN 18, 2014
Slightly hazy copper pour with a white head that fades to a ring. Aroma is green apple, olives, caramel, and faint funk. Taste is apple pie filling, olives, and light funk. Medium body that dries on the palate.

nealblind (1284) - Seattle, Alabama, USA - APR 19, 2014
Cloudy orange pour. Aroma of musk, bretta, tang, yeast, peach. Tastes strongly of yeast, applesauce, briny! One of the best out of the twenty I had in one sitting. Very sweet could be somewhat drier.

Hazy orange-hued body. Sharp, spicy and funky apple nose that emanates vibrant complexity. Similarly, the body is sharp, spicy apple with an apple juice backbone and pungent funkyness and barnyard throughout. Quite a lively apple cider that really explodes with complexity. A touch of band-aid at the end.

mjg74 (2910) - La Mesa, California, USA - OCT 22, 2013
Corked 25.4 OZ bottle for $1.39 @ Bargain Market. Hazy deep golden/orange in color. Much darker than most ciders I’ve tried. Slightly sweet apple nose with a hint of tartness. Sweet up front with a really nice crisp apple flavor to it. Slightly tart finish. Pretty good.

BMan1113VR (7911) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 4, 2013
Best Before 03.2013. Pours with a pretty deeply golden hued body (crystal clear) with a moderate white head that fizzes away. About as deep in hue as I’d possibly want my maltiest West Coast IPAs to get. Aromas are of apple, lightly funky, clove phenolics, a touch of sulfur, brett, slightly chlorophenolic: Normandy Cider bandaid character (light). Mild sweetness, light acid. Flavors are really pretty sweet, with a chlorophenolic smokey and band aid finish. Lightly bacony and residual sweetness in the finish. Very sugary upfront, medium apple character, light sulfur. Honestly it is missing complexity. Medium bodied, slightly sticky with lively carbonation. Forced Carbed bottle. Not my thing as far as ciders go.

wlajwl (4924) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - FEB 3, 2013
Aroma is slightly tart/mostly sweet apples and fruit, while appearance is a bit darker than most ciders. The flavor is sweetness, slightly funky yeast and finishes with a mix of tartness and slightly dull.

LinusStick (3052) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 16, 2012
Delicious apple cider. Aroma was good. Sweet apple and notes of must. Pour was medium gold and bubble with a two finger white head. Taste was very sweet in the beginning. The strong apple flavor turned dry in the finish. Very strong carbonation. Loved it.
