Growler from le brewery. Pours a lovely mid-orange brown with a super bubbly white head. Nose is muted, although not more than many other ciders, showing a fair bit of perfumed yeasty apple pie goodness. Body follows with similar flavors, the perfume shows its face again with tart apple and pear goodness. Good, long, just off-dry acidic finish that coats the mouth. Some serious carbonation and the hint of sugar here makes it quite enjoyable.

From growler. Great apple cider aroma with fresh apple juice and nice lactic acidity. Carbonic notes, very clean nose. Hazy pale straw-yellow with no head. Medium watery body with medium-high carbonation. Great apple flavor - tart, bright acidity with nice lactic notes. Fresh fruity apple juice flavor, too. Great balance, and very refreshing with clean finish.

On tap at East End Brewing. Pours a very cloudy bright orange color with a small white frothy head. A sweet aroma of tart apples. A earthy favor; sweet, but balanced apples and a almost bready flavor. Very enjoyable.

At the RB Pgh gathering 12/09. Some what apply aroma. Tart and dry on the first taste. Cloudy pale yellow with what I perceive to be an almost greenish hint. Mild carbonation. Tastes like many homebrewed ciders. Not sweet or even comparable to the masss comercial ciders. More lifelike in all respects. Get this while its available, only in growlers.

This one poured a cloudy straw yellow color with a fluffy white head. Aroma was tart apples, a little funk and some vinegar. Flavor was sweet fresh apples upfront, with a tart somewhat sour funky finish. A bit like a berliener weiss with apples.
