Honey crisp apples are fine but they’re more of a local "thing" than a great apple--it’s a Minnesota thing, with this variety having been bred by the University of Minnesota to try an capture all the ideal elements in an apple. This cider is very white--an odd looking cider--and too sweet, with an overpowering quality. Some apple comes through, which is more than you can say about many American ciders, and there is a light apple effervescences, too. It needs some caramel dip. I’m still waiting for an American cider that is as good as a cask English cider. I’ll be waiting a long time, I think. On tap at The Happy Gnome, St. Paul.

Skyview (5477) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - DEC 19, 2009
On draught during the Falconetti Evil Cider launch party at the Happy Gnome in St Paul, MN. Pours a hazy yellow straw colored cider this a thin white ring that has some nice retention. Aroma of tart apples, vanilla, a hint of oak, honey and a touch of Asti Spumante. Taste is much smoother than Crispin’s regular ciders with taste of tart apple core (with seeds), some light apple skin, honey and a touch of vanilla. Finish is smooth, a soft carbonation texture with a short lived vanilla, honey and apple core aftertaste, then a crisp a light honey aftertaste. Alcohol is well hidden. Much better profile than the bottled Honey Crisp Reserve.
