Straw pour. Mild aroma of apples (of course) and alcohol. Flavor is tart and a bit odd, and quite strong!

Poured at CiderDays 2012. Carameled aroma, with an almost ice-cider-like concentrated tone. Moves into a more complex, peppery rich and nicely bitter-balanced body. Finishes dry.

Sampled with Linh at 61 Local in Brooklyn during NYC Cider Week 2012. Pours a light hazy amber golden body. Aroma is dry apple and sweet apple skins. Mouthfeel is slightly dry and acidic with notes of apple, light sugar and fruit skins. Nice.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled at Applepalooza @ Astor Center(10/19/11), & a bit more at the Union farmer’s market.
14k gold color & sheen.
Smells heavy of acid, wood, & sharp flesh.
Taste was not as acidic as expected. Faintly sweet apples are overshadowed by the pleasantly bitter middle. Exceptional dry finish. Just a bit tart. Snappy, though lenient carbonation. More cider then apple wine. Tasty. :)

Pouring at the Applepalooza event at the Astor Center. Pours a clear corn silk gold. Sweet apples, toast. Dry and crisp, nice tannis, acid dries out a bit more. Crisp, light carbonation.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep golden pour with a little kiss of soft carbonation. The nose is soft and quite appley. A little bit of light tannic character. A little bit of tartness on the finish. It’s a pretty straightforward product although it does have a nice sweet dried apple. It’s quite nice actually.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle… Clear golden cider with abundant, weeping legwork. The nose is of fresh, sweet red apples and mild ethanol. Light-bodied and abrasive with busy carbonation. The flavor is fairly tart and moderately bitter. Finishes tart, bitter, and then ridiculously dry. Bottle courtesy of JW77!

JW77 hooked it up with this treat! Apples galore jump out of the glass and greet you with a smile. Some nice wood notes and light peat makes itself known if you pay attention. Great apple flavor with some dry earthy tones. Damn fine cider.
