COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A lightly sparkling, crisply effervescent cider made with traditional English bittersweet cider apples sourced in the Malvern Hills of Worcestershire. Dark straw in appearance with a semi-brililant richness. The slight brettanomyces arome lends to an almost traditional farmhouse cider bouquet. Soft, subtle natural apple sweetness up front, brett and tannins mid palate move in to a slightly woody dry lingering finish.

bhensonb (10793) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 2, 2012
Can from the Davis Co-Op. Pours orange tinged gold with a few bubbles. Aroma is much more like fresh apples than most ciders. Itís a little earthy - maybe thatís the brett. Near med body. Flavor is a little earthy, very apple skin astringent. Quite dry. Overall a pretty tasty cider for pasteurized.

brokensail (10641) - Orange County, California, USA - FEB 19, 2012
Clear golden yellow color with a ring of white foam around the glass. A light tartness and Brett funk to the aroma, quite nice actually. Some sweet apple notes and a touch of earthiness. The flavor has a hint of rubber, but otherwise is good. Pronounced Brett flavor and an interesting flavor of apple skins.

Drake (8030) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JAN 24, 2011
Kinda surprised Iím the first rater here. Cool. Clear very pale yellow pour. Medium fizzy white head fades instantly. Aroma of nice, tart dry apples with a faint bit of brett. The taste is similar. Apples, dry and tart, faintly sweet in the finish and with just a touch of brett lending an almost olive-like note. Medium bodied. Dry and champagne-like. Nice cider.

BMan1113VR (7834) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 14, 2011
Can thanks to SS. Pours with a brilliant, filtered clear yellow body with a white head that lasts for quite a long time. Very effervescent looking. No lace. Earthy, dry, sulfury. Apples, light farmhouse hints, musty, decent acidity, earthy. Champagne, mustard seed. Perfumy, light fusel. Tannins, slightly tangy. Flavors are medium dry throughout although a touch to sweet in the finish for my taste. Medium sulfur, very light leather and farmhouse (less than the nose). Smooth but possibly a bit flabby. Minimal tannic components, earthy finish. Balance is a little sweet overall, not very sharp or defined. Medium to light bodied. Carbonation is medium (thankfully not as high as their other offerings). Minimal tannic balance. Medium to short duration. All this said, easily Crispinís best cider in my opinion. Decently to style.

Pint can. Poured clear, brighter golden with a short-lived white head. The aroma picked up tangy apple cider with white pepper, clove, and fruity Brett accents. The flavor found tart apple skins with complementary white wine character.. not too substantial across the middle, but there was green apple essence.. finished rate and refreshing with more apple skins and wine. Lighter-bodied with tight, prickly carbonation on the palate.. decent feel and flow.. nice one.
