Bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a slightly hazy pale gold with minimal head. Aroma of crisp and sweet apples, with a little funk. Taste is medium-heavy sweet and light tart . Follows aroma, with lots of bready yeast in the finish. Loads of fresh apples in here. Medium bodied with a somewhat sticky texture. Lively carbonation and a very long finish. Pretty darn good, not an everyday cider but something I would enjoy again.

Bomber pours a slightly cloudy pale straw with a small white head. Aroma is dry soapy apple. Taste is dry apples and semi tart, green apples. Simple drinkable.

michaelinwa (589) - Bothell, Washington, USA - MAY 16, 2014
Bottle. Pale yellow pour, like lemonade. Aroma is very light, all apple, and very subtle. Carbonation is very light. Flavor is light, semi-sweet, fairly basic cider flavor, a little tartness to make it more interesting. Overall, not much of a departure, and I’m not really sure the pilsner yeast brings a whole lot to this one. Easy to drink, has a refreshing quality. Nice, just not particularly interesting.

scooterbub (823) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - MAR 9, 2014
650ml bottle. Pours a hazy pear color with no head. Taste is of apple, wood, citrus and some honey. Similar aroma. Has a decent body with a clean, slight dry finish. Good, but not as great as what I had hoped.

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - FEB 27, 2014
Bottle split with my wife. Poursa hazy gold with no real head. Soft wood on the nose, a bit of yeast. Medium-bodied, soft apple, sweetness. A touch of tartness into the finish with some more yeast. Simple but tasty.

bhensonb (10906) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 11, 2013
Bottle from the Co-Op in Eureka, CA. Pours hazy perry color. Aroma is something brightly fruit sweet. Certainly not skin. It does suggest pear a bit. Med body. It’s quite fresh tasting, just lightly sweet, and a little apple skin does come out. Still, it’s not your standard cider. It’s quite tasty. Gets just a little towards astringent apple in the finish. Lovely stuff.

Danyel (647) - Colorado, USA - DEC 4, 2013
Bottle. Pours hazy yellow with a minimal white head. Has a very apple smell with a dryness to it. Really crisp great apple flavor very lasting finish. Not too sweet, not too dry- just a nice balanced great cider! Would definitely get it again.

madvike (2693) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 21, 2013
Bottle - Pours hazy pale yellow with no head. Nose is pear, yogurt, vanilla, a little bread dough, and light sweetness. Taste is real yogurty, sweet pear and apple, and a nice yeastiness. Medium-bodied and slick. Good stuff.

obguthr (3754) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - OCT 11, 2013
Crisp apple and applesauce nose. Milky yellow, moderate effervescence. Dry, somewhat tart. Very clean, lacks character. Good, but fails to warrant premium pricing.

Nuffield (3667) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - SEP 30, 2013
Slightly hazy, light yellow, sparkling. Fruity apple flavor--fresh, crisp, high quality--and a bright aroma. Excellent quality, very drinkable. (bottle, 2013 Ale Jail festival, St. Paul, MN)
