3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(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.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, bought @ Vinspecialisten, Kolding Storcenter.
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.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Stearns. Golden pour with a huge white head and tons of fizz. Whew, this is funky. Smoke, blue cheese, apple, and yeast. A bit of peach, barnyard, and herbs. The flavor is pretty funky as well. Lots of barnyard, some leather, and earth. Herbs, apple, blue cheese, and peach. Light sweetness, but a very drying, almost tannic finish.
