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.

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.

Draft. Pours a golden body with a bubbly lacing. Fresh apples with a vinous note. Sweet with a tangy tart bite. Nice.

A nice cider. Definitely on the drier side. Fairly tart, with light apple skin tannins. Nothing spectacular, but pretty drinkable.

Alldaydrinker (559) - Norwood, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 13, 2008
Courtesy of emerica56, thanks buddy. Pours a pale yellow color with a small fizzy white head. Nose is mild, tart fruits, apple, pear, and salt. Initial taste is tart with apples dominating. Bitterness comes in the mid palate with a touch of salt. Finishing with a good tart balance and mildly dry. Overall it was pleasing and crisp, cant complain too much.

emerica56 (600) - Bristol, Rhode Island, USA - MAY 13, 2008
Pours a yellow color with a head that fades as quick as the pour. The nose is very weak with saome hints of pear and apple with a tart finish. The initial flavor is very tart with pear and apple sweetness and it seems to be well balanced. There is a lot of carbonation in each sip, but the finish is so acidic. The increased acidity almost makes it un palatable but the sweetness balances it out.

Drink4Satan (675) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 13, 2008
Pours an ultra-pale sparkling colour with a minimal head that fizzles to a ring quickly. The nose has lambic-like notes and is percievably sugary. Muted notes of pear accompany the obvious tart apples. The flavour is sugary, slightly tart, and salty like a Berliner Weise. Notes of acetic acid appear mid-palate and the finish is dry, salty and spicy. The palate is sharp and dry with a mild warming in the finish.

BitchesBrew (714) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 5, 2008
[750ml bottle] Crystal clear pale gold color, with some tiny white bubbles. Interesting aroma-- sweet/tart apples, some slight musty character. Flavors are clean, crisp. Some slight wild element to the finish. Very dry. Drinks very easily, with no evidence of the alcohol content. Mild carbonation, just enough. Overall, this is quite good.

LyndaNova (532) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 10, 2006
Cold 750ml bottle: Pours a clear straw yellow color with bubbles constantly rising from the bottom. Aroma is of light apples. Taste is of light apples. Watery texture, effervescent and dry. Not sweet, but lightly tart.

JoeMcPhee (8302) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 16, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 23, 2010 750 ml bottle. Clear, straw coloured cider, with a white and fast fading head. Malic tartness, fresh appley aroma with some apple skin tannins evident. Lightly musty. Flavour is quite a bit sweeter than their other stuff, some light tannins and a clean appley flavour. A hint of wildness in back as it warms up. A simple cider, but it’s not a bad one.

UPDATED: JAN 13, 2007 750ML bottle: Clear yellow color, apple aroma, clean crisp taste, not very sweet like some ciders, but ends very tart.
