Tart, sour, musty, shoe leather, dank apple nose. Pours murky golden with nice natural carbonation. Very little head. Funky, sweet, bacon and tart apple flavor. Smoked meat lingers on the back of the palate. Exceptionally unique and palatable. If you are accustomed to American "ciders" prepare to be taken to church on this one. Not a sugarry, malternative crap- bomb. Marvelous and enlightening.

Strong band aid aroma over juicy honeycrisp apple. Dark gold, strong effervescence. Not nearly as yeast forward on the palate as I was expecting, the robust sweetness is rounded out nicely with the gentle fresh band aid funk and fizzy carbonation.

750ml corked champagne bottle Pale golden body, ring of white foam and very fine lively bead. Reasonably funky aroma; hay, barnyard, washed rind cheese, bitter apple, hint of horse blanket and wheat cereals. Quite sweet, giving the body a thickness and texture, soft lively carbonation quite appealing. Body not as funky as suggested on the nose. Sweet granny smith apple, pineapple, subdued hay and cheesy horsiness linger on the finish. Quite a complex and flavoursome cider, body is a bit on the sweet side and doesn’t carry as much weight as the nose suggests, so i’m the slightest bit disappointed.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Bottle (small sample). Pale yellow pour, semi-hazy. Apple on the nose, sour apple on the taste. Presents with a bit of body, but it may be due to low carbonation. Nice cider.

Bottle split with Tony. Pours a hazy, bright orange body with nice lacing. The aroma is farmhouse funk, tart, and apple. The moutfeel is surprisingly smooth, with little to no carbonation on the tongue. The flavors are extremely subdued as well. Everything seems very controlled with this cider, but I would personally have enjoyed a bit more flavor.

The pour is a clear gold. The head dissipates quickly. There is a lot of carbonation with this bad boy. The aroma is fruity. Full of apple tartness and farmhouse funk. The flavor is majority apple. Sour hints. Very nice cider.

Another fantastic French cider. Is this the beer world’s most reliable style? Very light in terms of palate weight (abv only 4.5%) and the apple frut is not in your face, but the flavours positively dance across the tongue. Quite grapey on the nose but the palate is dry with fantastic mineral tang, sherbet and soft and clean apple juice. Incredibly gluggable.

750 ml bottle from Imbibe Wine. Nose is nicely tart with green apples showing up shortly and a slight note of horseblanket in the background. Lightly hazy urine yellow with a medium white head. Flavor is light tartness balanced by light sweetness and green apples.

Pours like apple cider, imagine that looks like piss sitting in a toilet, yet surprisingly attractive. Nose like a lambic, formidable scent of sour apples. Very bubbly on the lips and nose with a full mouthfeel. Tastes like apple cider with faint alcohol, smooth like water and very dry, leaves me wanting a glass of water to quench this cotton mouth...might be the opiates and purple haze though...overall impression is delicious and warmingthough. I need a refill.

The 2006 bottle uncorks with a fireworks bang, and cider gushes all over my hand and the table. Once relocated into a glass, it is cloudy necatrine with a slight milky opacity. After the initial rush of bubbles exhausts itself, steady carbonation forms a few foam island on the surface. The aroma is at first earthy and sour, followed by a lungful of horsey brett funk... after a minute or two, scents of dust and old cheese also become prominent. A happily, surprisngly apple-y flavor- stewed Granny Smiths with a nod toward Fijis- and accents of salt, cinnamon, and smoky creosote. The palate is quite oily and crackles with poprock fizz. The coda consists of a puckeringly tart finish and oily-bretty tonguecoating aftertaste. Although many of the individual components are... unexpected,... the cider as a whole is (accidentally I’m sure) quite interesting, complex and refreshing.
