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.

Bottle sample at Keg FOA. Poured pale color with a minimal head that diminished slowly with little lacing. Medium apple aroma. Medium body with a dry texture and soft carbonation. Medium tart apple flavor with a medium tart finish of short to moderate duration. Drinkable refreshing beverage.

daknole (9044) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAY 31, 2010
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.

Drake (8214) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JUL 29, 2010
12 ounce bottle from Beer Run in Charlottesville, VA. Pours a clear golden color with merely a faint suggestion of a head. Sweet, gummy apple aroma with a faint bit of tartness in the finish. The taste is tart apples with a faint champagne note in the finish before it goes sweet again. Certainly drier than their other ciders, but nowhere worthy of the moniker brut. Decent, though, for what it is.

BMan1113VR (7853) - 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.

Ughsmash (7122) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 23, 2011
Bottled. Poured crystal-clear straw golden with tiny rising bubbles. The aroma picked up a blend of sweet and tart apples accented by a little oak and a faint hint of pineapple.. tangy and intriguing. The flavor found a little more of the sweet apples than tart ones (but both were there).. dry on the edges with green apple skins and related spices. Light-bodied with prickly effervescence on the palate.. nice, dry feel and flow.. I enjoyed it.

Sample from a 12 oz. bottle at Wine and Cheese Place. Tried it right after the Original. Pours a clear pale yellow with plenty of visible carbonation and a small white head. Notes of fresh apples and champagne. Light-bodied, with high carbonation and a dry, champagne-like mouthfeel. Dry all the way through, crisp and refreshing. I still prefer the Original by a nose, though.

12oz clear bottle, with a twist-off cap. Clear pale whitish yellow color. Minimal white head. Some slowly ascending bubbles in the body, little loose lace. This apple flavor actually agrees with me. Not too tart, good skin flavor, nice juiciness. Tastes fresher, somehow. Good yeast quality, kind of champagney. Lightly tart taste, little sweet. Medium body. Smooth, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Avoids the viscous finish. I guess "extra-dry" is just starting to enter the realm of satisfactorily dry, for me. This is one of the more enjoyable, easy-to-get-through ciders I’ve had in a while. Nice bright fresh apple flavor. My kind of cider.
