Wow, at first I was really disappointed in the overly phenolic, almost band-aidy character in this. I discovered pouring the dregs in the glass helped to mute the harsh (almost smoked meat) funkiness a bit. Sweet apple aroma is covered by brett funk with a spicy edge. Taste is sweet cider up front, then goes medicinal, hinting at smoky band-aides. I thought it was fairly drinkable with the yeast mixed up, but still very funky. The closest thing I have had to this was the Brownslane from Crispin, but this is more funky. Weird to me, but maybe this is traditional?

HopRedHead (397) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 28, 2013
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours a golden straw colour with a lively and quickly dissipating tall head. Barnyard funk, touch of smoky meat and acidic spritziness on the nose. Taste is a little more refined, more apple flesh rather than skin present, with an acidic champagne flavour. Surprisingly refreshing, great balance between sweet and dry. Very carbonated. Had it with a pork dish, went down a treat.

madvike (3134) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - APR 24, 2013
Bottle shared by rschnake...thanks Rob! - Pours light amber with a ring of bubbly white head. Nose is tons of band-aid initially, with light sweet apple, lots of apple skin and dryness. Taste has less band-aid. Real dry and crisp apples. Still has a little sweetness, with more skin and flesh with a little brett plasticyness. Thin, slick and well-carbonated.

BeerandBlues2 (11048) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 18, 2013
Bottle @ home. Pours lightly hazy deep yellow with a fizzy, effervescent white head, fast rising bubbles with head retention moving to the glass edge, and no lacing. Aroma is earthy and medicinal phenols, apples, straw, and a barnyard funkiness. Flavor is apples, straw and leaves, medicinal phenols and a lightly sweet finish. Light body and moderate carbonation.

podey (637) - New York, New York, USA - MAR 16, 2013
375ml bottle, 2011 vintage. Pours just slightly cloudy gold with foamy head that dissipates quickly. High carbonation, lively mouthfeel. Aroma is earthy and musty and faintly apple. The taste of this cider is more of the flesh of the apple, not the skins; therefore, it is more sweet than tart. Finish is dry. Terrific cider.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - FEB 18, 2013
Bottle from Sam’s Quik Shop. Pours a hair darker than expected. Clear from the top, but hazier at the bottle of the bottle. Nose of apple skins, meat, and even some seeds. A bit earthy, with some light funk and band-aid notes. A bit of honey sweetness added to the taste. Lively palate with a dry finish. Yum.

Bottle from Whole Foods on P Street NW in Washington, DC. Served in a wine glass. Pours a pale golden straw color. Nose is musty and slightly earth with backing apple. Bit of bruised apple character. Flavor not as musty. Dry with mild hay. Quite crisp.

Prufrockstar (1642) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 26, 2013
750 ml bottle, 2011 vintage. My first cider rating. Pale light golden color, white head that blooms then dissipates instantly. Crisp, delicate flavor. Apple cider, light and floral. Dry compared to most ciders I've had in the past. Soft carbonation. Light body, seems to dance in my mouth. Very nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sample from a 2007 corked and caged bottle. Tastes basically like fermenty apple juice. Not bad, though, better than the typical macro ciders for sure. Sort of a heartier flavor, especially for the lighter ABV. Clear lighter yellow color, minimal white head. More sweet than tart flavor. Baked apple. Crisp, lighter carbonation, dry texture. Overall, I was impressed, as far as ciders go. Especially considering that this is a 5 year old bottle.
