375 mL bottle, corked & caged (2002 on the label, sampled April 2005): large white bubbly head dies quickly, but is replaced just as quickly by the intense stream of bubbles that rises through the crystal clear yellow body. Musty, sour apple aroma with notes of grass, heather, and limestone. Moist, almost soggy red apple & pineapple flavour with fizzy alcohol undertones and sweet sherry accents. Tart finish leaves the palate curious and satisfied.

A nice surprise wasn’t sure if I was going to like this Cider, but it was pretty good. Apple, sweet, and I think some smoke flavors. Finishes clean and crisp.

2003 bottle. Very fizzy stuff, pours with a big bubbly white head that quick dissapears. Hazy orange body. Fantastic aroma - concentrated green apple sweetness tempered by a dry corn silage acidic bite. The flavor has a good underlying apple flesh sweetness and apple skin tartness but also has a distracting tin foil bite. It’s not overpowering it just keeps you from really settling in with the drink. Good mouthfeel.

2002 bottle. This cider is off the charts, but I can’t tell which direction. Aroma is a barnyard containing a small apple orchard, many horses, some male cats, and a substantial wildflower stand at the shoulder of the gravel road. The flavor adds haybarn, tackroom, and root cellar earthiness. My mind is blown. This is Rurual Memory in a Bottle. I really can’t drink more than a few sips, as this is so sensually, mnemonically, and possibly microbially pungent. Damn.

Vintage 2003
Misty golden color. A very nice aroma of mature apples, with a touch of vanilla, smokeyness and young oak. Tha flavor is sweet enough in the front, well structured, with an interesting light smokeyness, getting a bit more astringent at the end. This is good stuff!

jeffc666 (1984) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - JAN 13, 2005
2002 Very fizzy yellow body with a lot of bubbles, champagne like for sure. The aroma is sour apples, light musty, some wood. The flavor is more apple sweet than sour. Extremely dry attenuated body. Fizzy. Interesting for sure.

2002 bottle - weak and watery, alcoholic, wood laden tart apple juice. Not much to say here unfortunately....
