Prufrockstar (799) - 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

Jesterdeal (1789) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - JUL 1, 2014
Bottle shared with Justin. Aroma of fresh tart apples and slight perfume. If you get in close, the aroma shoots run up the sinus. Cork popped across the room and the bottle gushed something proper so be warned. Big huge champagne bubbly head and a solid carbonation once it dissipates. Taste is green apple, tart citrus, floral, champagne, and a funky yeast. Mouthfeel is dry brut champagne with no real lingering bite. Very pleasant and unique.

CanIHave4Beers (3142) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - JUN 17, 2014
The year on the bottle is 2011
Pours a nice pale straw color with a huge rise and fall head and so many tiny bubbles rising up in the glass.

The cider is very aromatic, floral & earthy with a lot of wet limestone and some nice tart apple. There is some mild barnyard funk to it, but it’s sort of lingering in the background.

The flavor is largely dry with just a touch of apple sweetness up front. It’s got a nice minerally character and a really good tartness throughout. There is a touch of spice and a nice bit of leather. The apple skin bitterness is low but well employed here. The acidity is both bright and well balanced & never becoming too dominant.

The palate is both light and prickly & as such very well suited to the flavor of the cider.
A very enjoyable cider on all accounts.

Bottle. Hazy light gold with active carbonation and no head. Aroma is plastic and earthy funk. Taste is sour apple with a weird bacon and bandaid finish. Crisp dry palate. Pretty weird.

DuffMan (6462) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 3, 2014
Bottle. Very hazy umber-hued, low carbonation. Aroma is very complex: funky and cheesy and appley. Equally complex palate of sweet apple pie, vanilla, spice, cobwebby spaces, light cheese rind, raw dough, wet clay, leather. Holy smokes this is an incredible drinking experience!

Bottle at Andy’s for New Years. Faintly hazed straw gold thin white head. Big and dirty, funky, cheesy. Big contrast, sweet ahs full of apples. Long sweet apples and caramel. Tasty.

wnoble (1251) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JAN 5, 2014
2011. Nose is leather, funk, apples, tart skins, rubber, acetone, blue cheese. Flavor is stilton washed down with applejuice, yeast, funks, basements, slight rubber. Pretty nice. Not as dry as I recall the regular version being for some reason.

jcr (2165) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - NOV 24, 2013
Bottle. 2011 vintage. Pale golden body with a fizzy white head. Aroma of tart apple, leather, lacquer, barnyard, peaches, musty basement. The flavor is moderately to heavily sweet and moderately acidic. It finishes moderately sweet and moderately acidic. Medium body, watery/sticky texture, lively carbonation. Great balance of apple and funkiness. Taste of apple, then leather, then peach, then barnyard finished with a dry tartness. Complex and refined.

nuplastikk (4271) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 11, 2013
2010 bottle shared at Levi’s. Ugly, farty apple factory aroma. Taste makes up for it. Slightly hazy yellow-orange body. Not much of a head. Doesn’t taste like it aged well.
