Draft at Dutch’s in late June/early July this year. Pours a hazy golden with a hint of orange and no head. The aroma and flavor have sweet apples and pears, a nice tartness grows, some musty character shows, more interesting than most ciders.

I expected more from this. In a lot of ways it was like a champagne - really fizzy and somewhat dry, but there was a bit of sweetness to it. I kept trying to place one of the main flavors and the closest I could come up with was a champagne like flavor.
hazy, cloudy, sparkling, minimal head, light sweetness, lightly bitter, lightly sour, light body, fizzy, golden,
