yngwie (12612) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 10, 2012
Bottle, 375ml. Vintage 2010. It’s an almost clear one, golden in color and with some bubbles on top. The aroma is both cellar-ish and apple-ish, with apple cores and orchard. It’s full-bodied, tart and quite effervescent, having your cheeks clinging to your teeth. It’s very tasteful, with cellar, orchard and lots of apples and apple cores, really balanced and pleasant. Lasting finish. A superb cider I’ll certainly hunt down again. 121110

bu11zeye (11760) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - MAR 10, 2006
(Bottle, 2002 vintage) Pours a lightly cloudy golden body with a thin white head. Aroma of apple, bandage, organic earthiness, and a hint of wood. Flavor of apple with a farm fresh organic quality. Dry finish.

argo0 (11181) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 18, 2003
(750ml 2000) Quickly dissipating off-white head leaves a hazy golden liquid with champagne bubbles rising from within. Aroma is apple/pear, wood, sour, light barnyard. Taste is light sweet up top, apple with slight pear, turns apple juice briefly before becoming much more tart, finally finishing green apple. Were it a wine, I would call this semi-sweet. My rating is based on preference much more than style, as my experience in the world of cider is extremely limited.

thewolf (10770) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUN 5, 2008
Bottle, bought @ Vinspecialisten, Kolding Storcenter.
[vintage 2005]
Pours clear golden with a green-yellow hue. When poured, there is a medium, fizzy white head, but it quickly disappears. Instead the stunning amount of fresh bubbles surching towards the top, forming a new, continually regenerating white head. Aroma is great, lots of fresh, green apples as well as a slight funkiness of overripe red apples. High and lively carbonation. Flavour is wonderfully balanced between slight woodiness, heavy fresh apples, light funk and a general good balance. Wonderful.

bhensonb (10345) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 22, 2012
2010 750 c&c from The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours slightly hazy orange gold with a fizzy, transient white head. Aroma of earthy, ripe - slightly overripe? - apples. Med minus body. Light carb. Flavor is earthy, astringent apple - suggests red apples. This is really drinkable. Much like a local farm cider. I’ve had one better, but just one.

Tmoney99 (10076) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 20, 2009
Bottle corked and caged from Keg Liquor. Poured clear yellow color with a minimal white head that diminished quickly with minimal lacing. Moderate to heavy aroma of green apple. Light to medium body with a dry texture and lively carbonation. Light sweet & sour apple flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations were met.
