2002 bottle - weak and watery, alcoholic, wood laden tart apple juice. Not much to say here unfortunately....

Cornfield (5362) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JUL 11, 2005
Vintage 2002: This is some nasty looking, cloudy stuff, albeit it is the first cider I’ve had that sported such a large, fizzy head... however briefly. The aroma actually reminds me of that of a funkier gueuze. The apple in the aroma seems almost incidental to the overall sourness. It also carries a barnyard, old hay scent with sweated leather and cobwebs. The flavor is close to vinegar but definitetly apple. The lively carbonation also brings with it tastes of lemon, bleu cheese, raw grain, and apple skins & stems. An interesting beverage.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - FEB 8, 2007

Gerbeer (1500) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 13, 2013
375 ml bottle. Cork popped right after cage removed - a mess. Pours gold with huge head of big bubbles that dissipate right away. Aromas of manure and over ripe apples. Flavour of applesauce , , hay, and light citrus. Nice enough but the aroma sneaks in to ruin the taste.

footbalm (1219) - Western Minneapolis Suburbs, Minnesota, USA - OCT 31, 2004
Light yellow-golden brew.Dumb as it sounds this had the aroma of buttered or caramel popcorn and tasted the same.It was after a few sips that I got a sour apple taste and was left with that after taste.All the bubbly made it seem like champagne.Thin on the palate.
