3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle - Huge pop of the cork on this one, right as I loosened the cage. Pours light clear amber with a thin bubbly white head. Nose is plastic and leather funk, dry apple, and real light baking spice. Taste is a bit sweeter, with the plastic/leather character that recedes through the finish, letting a semi-sweet apple peek through. Smooth, light and effervescent, with big-time carbonation.

What a great cider. Pours with a fizzy, medium-sized white head. Aroma of apples fresh off the tree and a lightly tart barnyard funk. Moderately sweet natural apple flavor perfectly paired with a nice acidic tartness. Smooth, tasty and refreshing. Dry and slightly tart finish.
