COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pale gold, light, bubbly, with a stroke of sweetness along with the tart, bitter, and fruity elements that good hard cider offers. A clean, light "quaffing" cider, but don't put it away it too fast! Alcohol content 6.5% by volume. Available in 750 ml bottle with crown cap or 5-gallon keg. Our Farmhouse recalls the refreshing, low-alcohol "ciderkins" or "small ciders" of centuries past. Cooling in summer, warming in winter, and companionable with most foods.

TheGent (656) - , Massachusetts, USA - NOV 28, 2010
A fun cider enjoyed around Thanksgiving. The color is the same orange yellow as the label with less carbonation coming up the glass than i expected. Smell was sweet apple with little flower as well. Taste was sweet with tartness and a slight surfer tinge. Light but playful carbonation for a very enjoyable palate.

auerbrau (3203) - Ithaca, New York, USA - SEP 6, 2010
750 ml Bottle. 750mL Bottle, purchased at NH Liquor Store. Big juicy cider aroma, bright and fresh and clean. Pours a vibrant and brilliant golden, with minimal clean white head. Flavors are fresh and balanced. Dry skins, freshly pressed juice, pink applesauce, and some apple pie all mingled together. Very touching and refined. Graceful. Sippable and refreshing all in one. A great class of cider.

750 from BOTW. A spritzy and well carbonated cider that pours very lively. The aroma is light and fruity, pears and apples. Its very easy to drink and quite enjoyable. I’ll need to try more from Farnum Hill.

puzzl (3258) - New York, New York, USA - JAN 24, 2010
Bottle, drank after the Extra-Dry and Semi-Dry. This was the winner, but not by much. Unfortunately, there were very few funky farmhouse notes here like the better French and Basque ciders. Much sweeter than the others. Icy, lightly carbonic acid in the flavor. Really doesn’t taste much different than the former except in the sweetness.

zdk (1859) - New York, New York, USA - JAN 21, 2010
bottle thanks to Joe: Pours straw yellow with a little funk in the nose. Tart crisp apples with some sharp bitterness and astringency. Has some sulfur funk that keeps things interesting but doesn’t taste so great.

PilsnerPeter (3045) - Flushing, New York, USA - JAN 20, 2010
Bottle at Joe’s cider tasting: Still golden pour. Semi-dry aroma- some soft apple sugars and a very subtle vegetal/wood-like presence. Very light effervescent body. Slightly vinous and tart flavor. Quite dry with a soft leathery note in the background. Longer flavor than their other regular offering in the line-up. Has a softly tart vinous presence. A nice simple dry cider that offers a bit more tartness than this Cidery’s other offerings.

j12601 (9549) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - NOV 7, 2009
Bottle. Pours a clear light straw gold with a vague impression of a white head lingering at the edges. Soft apple flesh, champagne yeast. As it warms a faint hint of funkiness and a bit of honey. On the thin side of medium, but the carbonation is helping a bit. Little bit of straw and apple flavors, though lacking in what I thought I’d get from something calling itself “Farmhouse Cider”. Long tart finish with some strange off flavors that I can’t quite put my finger on. Drinkable, but a let down from what I was expecting based on the name, packaging, and price.
