750 ml bottle. Clear golden yellow with a fizzy white head. Aroma of apple, musty earthy funk and wood. The flavor is tart apples, light suger sweetness and a earthy sourness. Light body with sparkling carbonation and a dry, clean, refreshing finish. This is my type of cider, very dry and has a sour funk going on as well, in a really nice way.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
750mL Bottle. Tart, tangy light puckery apple nose. Pours a brilliant clear gold, with minimal head. Flavors are complex, if a bit elusive. Super, super dry, very clean finish. There’s a faint hint of lambic-like sourness and yeasty complexity. Super-crisp. I think I’d take an edge more sweetness for balance, but really this has a refined, maturity that reminds me most of good Spanish Cava. Elegant.
