European-style extra-dry over ice. The champagne of ciders; combining subtlety and sophistication; the epitome of unforced elegance. A crisp fresh apple bouquet with a brisk, refined finish that lingers on the palate.

Bottle at West Coast Brew Fest 2010. Pours pale gold with a frothy bubble head. A fresh apple cider aroma. Near medium body with mild carbonation. Flavor is fresh apple with skin bitter quickly following. Finishe slightly less bitter than it began. Definitely balanced sweet and bitter. Nice.

Pale yellow, not much head(must be married)...Aroma is dry and apples. A bit of honey. Flavor is bubbly and tart apples. dry and artificial. Not the best by any stretch.

BMan1113VR (7904) - Los Angeles, California, USA - FEB 24, 2010
Bottle. Pours with a very pale golden body. Fading foam. Dry, very dry, aroma. Minerals, apple core. Taste dry, delicate apple flavor. Not a ton of character, but not overdone with sugar. Forgettable, but not bad or repulsive at all. The best of the 12 oz Crispins. Light bubbles. Medium to dry finish.

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - FEB 27, 2010
Bottle from Rep. Pours a light clear straw yellow with fast fading fizzy white head. Aroma of light apple. Flavor of light apple. Mouth feel is light body with high carbonation. Overall, itís a simple easy drinking cider.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - APR 22, 2010
Very dry as she says. Pale in color, mild aromatics, medium body, superb carbonation, good acidity to fruit ratio. The finish is almost nonexistent. Not bad.

obguthr (4587) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - APR 23, 2010
Mild swiss cheese funk and ripe apple aroma, not strong. Clear light golden, effervescent. Somewhat dry flavor of apples. Probably a good choice for making various cider cocktails.

dionysus (1454) - Arizona, USA - APR 13, 2010
Iím not going to go too in depth considering this is a cider, with the exception of saying that there are too many damn haters out there! Itís definately not my first beverage choice but I recognize when one is well done. This is hands down one of the best cider producers in the market. Each of the entry levels are good in their own right. My oversimplified breakdown of these are light = apple flesh, hard = apple skin, brut = apple core with some floral notes. They are all well balanced and "dry", with the brut being the driest. The ice thing kinda scared me, but everyone needs a gimmick right? Cubed, not crushed, unless thatís your kinda thing.
