Had a bottle from Redlight Redlight. The vintage was 2008. Light and cloudy appearance, with very fine bubbles. The mouth feel was equatable to that of a champagne with the very light and refreshing bubbles. Amazing taste. One of my favorite ciders. Cant wait to crack open my 2010 bottle.

onceblind (4965) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 15, 2015
Tap at Bull and Bush. Clear golden with no head. Woody funky nose like the hostel I stayed at in Scotland, with an unfortunate methane-like back end. Full flavor with a wee touch of that methane flavor on the beginning, with a crisp earthy and dusty Apple flavor in the middle, and a slight boozy kick on the end. Very different and I’m not sure I like it.

mcberko (8036) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 7, 2015
2012 Vintage. 375mL bottle at Brouwer’s Cafe, pours a clear blonde with a large white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is wonderful, with loads of brett and farmhouse character. Flavour is funky as hell, with loads of farmhouse funk, yeast, and champagne. Wonderful stuff. A word class cider.

Ferris (6533) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 6, 2015
Bottle - Farmhouse, manure and apple. Clear gold with a bubbly white head. Apple, vanilla and a nice sweetness. Effervescent with a reasonably dry finish. Really nice.

apickles (182) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2015
Bottle direct from the cidery in Aug 2014 but it was 2013 vintage. Golden and quite fizzing in the glass. Sweet eating apples on the nose, quite sweet with a hint of coriander. Quite fizzy on the mouth - a nice drop!

thebeertourist (4996) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 14, 2014
2011 bottle. Golden, really very lively. Funky farmyard aroma. Fruity, mature apples, dust, farmyard. Lightish body. A pleasant surprise- refreshing, yet quite complex and balanced.

alexsdad06 (6401) - Ohio, USA - OCT 20, 2014
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.

gegwilson (1679) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 26, 2014
Bottle direct from the cidery. Pours golden with a thin white head. Quite well sparkling giving a full mouthfeel. Sweet apple flavour with sherbet and a mild herbal note. Crisp and fresh.

hackobock (1930) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 21, 2014
August 29, 2014. Bottle, 2012 vintage. Gusher, leaving 3/4 left in the bottle. Pours clear golden with a quickly dissipating frothy white head, Aroma is tart apples, oak, vanilla, barnyard. Taste is light sweet fruity, medium tart apples with a barnyard finish. Medium dry bodied, fizzy carbonation.

crossovert (8467) - Illinois, USA - AUG 26, 2014
Draft at Green Lady. REally phenominal normandie cidre, some dustiness, tannic skins, some decent acidity, oxidized but crisp and tart.
