COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

BMan1113VR (7858) - 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.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 25, 2009
Pale straw with just a few white, mostly force pour, bubbles. Scents of apples and floral perfume. Lightly tart and sweet. Bit of apple skin bitterness. Fairly dry in the finish. Not as clean and dry as I would expect.

skoisirius (1634) - Earth, Washington, USA - OCT 2, 2009
Another cider claiming to be big and huge that turns out weak and fairly boring. Decent apple flavors in a mild way through mid-body.

JK (4416) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - SEP 20, 2009
ABR 2009. Served on ice. Apple aroma and apple flavor, but it is not very strong. This one is dry. No yeast or complexity really, but drinkable enough.
