COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bare Naked is a stripped down, unencumbered hard cider.

Naturally fermented using "Forbidden Fruit" wit yeast and unpasteurized fresh-pressed apple juice. A secondary fermentation using sparkling wine yeast rounds out this bright, natural beauty.

Softly sparkling and approachable. Free spirited and complex, without being complicated.

An upfront fresh apple bouquet with enough grown up imagination and depth of character to be very interesting. Unfiltered and unfettered, straight from the tank.

No added sulfites, colorants, sugar, sorbate or benzoate preservatives. No added malt, spirit or grape alcohols.

22oz bottle, shared by Lindsey S. She says she got it for $2 on closeout from DEP’s, so who knows how old this is, maybe a year of age? Mostly clear orange yellow color. Lots of chunks of yeast in the body. Minimal white head. Medium-plus body. Smooth, kind of crisp very light carbonation. Sort of slick, interesting apple aroma. Kind of fresh and bright, light floral up front. Some bruised apple in the flavor, but still juicy and sweet -- not at all tart. Not cloying at all. Good amount of sweet. A little basic though, not too complex. Texture is whatever. Overall, a solid cider..

double deuce - nose is sour apples. Sip adds red apples and dust. Not as sweet as most ciders but still cloying.

Not as good as the angry orchard. A bit on the lighter side. Probably won’t order again.

22 ounce bottle. A really well balanced cider. Not too much sweet, sour or apple.

Chipalsa (1307) - Florida, USA - NOV 2, 2013
This one brings me back to my first homemade hard cider. No spices or treatments, just raw fermented apple juice with a pleasant, bready yeast aroma. The taste is even the same; watered-down but good apple crisp with a soft lager, bready softness. As simple as it is, inspirational simultaneously and sip after sip worth pondering upon. Cheers!

Bottle. Aroma is freshly cut sweet apples. Flavor is very straightforward - sweet, hints of dry tannins on the finish. Lingering sweetness and apple sugars.

Sweet, gentle, light, and a little fizzy; this cider reminds me of the apple juice you got when you were a little kid at the little table on Thanksgiving. Has a little yummy yeasty pollutant at the bottom and some awesome sediment, lending a cloudy pale yellow color. Diggin it. It’s very natural and naked, appropriate to the name. I recommend this for soaking pork chops to soften, and at the crazy price I got it at, ($1.99/bomber), it’s no thing.

From bottle. Pours a clear pale yellow with no head...light sediment throughout. aroma has winey apple notes...yeasty...light appley sweetness. flavor is slightly champagney...vinous apple notes and a hint of grassiness. mouthfeel is light and the finish is dry and champagne like. Crisp and refreshing but nothing unique ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
