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.

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.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: SEP 15, 2006 2003 vintage. Deep golden colour, low carbonation. Spicy apple aroma, cinnamon, soft baked apples, light barnyardy funkiness as well. Malic acid aroma. Flavour is sweet and spicy up front with some earthy dusty notes in the middle. Soft malic acidity and some apple skin derived tannins. Lingering soft tannins on the back of the palate that accentuate the lovely dryness. Funky and earthy. Really tasty... this won’t be my last bottle.
Cloudy golden yellow with a beautiful explosion of fine-laced bubbles quickly falling back to leave a fine white lace. Thick fruity apple aroma, malic tartness, rich sweet baked apple aroma. Light wild yeastiness, some leather and funk. Flavour is very fruity, lightly bready, sweet baked apples up front with some leathery wet hay funkiness. Quite tart in the finish with light vanilla oakiness over the whole thing. Gorgeous stuff.

Unclematties girlfriend shared this with us. Yellow pour. Smells of delcicious apples, tart and sweet. Flavor is purely delicious. Concentrated sweet/tart apples. Crisp and wonderfully carbonated like champagne. NICE!!
