puzzl (3254) - New York, New York, USA - SEP 22, 2011
Bottle shared by Paul. Full, rich aroma of apples, clearly the cryo-extracted rather than concentrated (not frozen on the tree), but a very solid example of such. Granny smith, pear, passionfruit, bright and crisp fig, Luxurious body, intensely concentrated, honey and fresh farm cider. Excellent balancing acidity, perfect example of the style.

PhillyCraft (3438) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 30, 2014
Bottle shared by James, pours shimmering golden with small ring of head but no lacing. Aromas and taste are clean apples with just the right amount of tartness and caramel. Wasn’t super complex but perfectly balanced to let the dank apples shine. Awesome shit. Thanks for sharing dad

fiulijn (15260) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 20, 2012
Corked bottle, from Vancouver Int’l Airport, international departures only
Beautiful golden color. Nice aroma of apples, strewed apples; not as deep as the Sparkling one side to side, there is a dusty trace too, and light alcohol. Syrupy sweet, with a good flavor of apples, and good acidity level. Very good drink, although not very complex as the best examples.
