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.

bhensonb (11389) - 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 (1111) - 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 (896) - 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.

BillKismet (3357) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 15, 2014
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 (2492) - 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 (7867) - 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 (4000) - 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.

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 14/20
SanfordBrewer (1391) - Sanford, Florida, USA - AUG 27, 2012
Golden with thin white head. Medium body with medium-high co2. A nice amount of brett funkiness, but with no acidity, and a fair amount of sweet juicy apple character.

Nate (3759) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 13, 2012
From bottle. Light carbonic gassy tart with apple juice and skins. Dark amber clear with thin head. Medium body with high carbonation. Sweet sweet cider with nice juicy flavor and sulfury funky sweet after. Has fairly typical cider elements, but quite sweet and a bit odd in some ways.
