Slubgob (305) - West Hartford, USA - JUN 5, 2016
UPDATED: JUN 5, 2016 Bottle into wine glass. Golden yellow very fine carbonation, clear. Nose of apple melon and honey. Fairly straighteners Apple flavor with a bit of tannins, dry as advertised. Moderate acidity keeps the palette clean and refreshed. Finishes short with more tannic apple. Not bad as a super, much better with food (grilled kielbasa and brats, both with mustard, baked beans in this case).

walrussell (192) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 22, 2015
Medium Gold Smells like old towel and old apple Just off-dry. Medium-low acid, tannins, and bitterness. Creamy carbonation. Med-full body. A bit of funk, soap, chalk, apple, and pear. Medium-long finish. At first I wasnt super impressed by this cider, but once I let it warm up, it came to life. Complex.

JStax (5214) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - JUL 19, 2015
750 bottle. The cider is a hazed gold color with a white head of foam. The aroma has musty, earthy apples with a noce level of funky acidity coming through. The taste is earthy, musty, and has some tartness. Medium body and higher carbonation levels. Very nice cider.

AdamChandler (4518) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 23, 2015
Very nice clear golden a 7up like head. Nose is great. Lots of great grape nose. I like the peach and kiwi notes. Taste is a bit less exciting. very dry, lots of grape, kiwi, some wood but a pretty bland taste compared to the nose.

deyholla (9997) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 11, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear gold with visible carbonation and no head whatsoever. Aroma has lots of dry wine notes with a bit of a white wine note. Flavor starts with more sweetness but finish is extremely dry with a bit of tartness.

keanex (1789) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - MAY 25, 2014
Bottle.
Appearance: Clear golden with some white fizz leaving the body but quickly settling to nothing.
Aroma: Very Bretty, but in a dry rubbery way. From far away I get tart notes but up close it’s all leathery Brett.
Taste: Up front is a dry, slightly tart slightly apple flavor that leads to a heavy Brett finish. Rubbery/leathery. It lingers of dish soap. Not a fan of this.
Palate: Vibrant and effervescent.
Overall: Second cider dominated by Brett that I don’t want to finish. This tastes pretty bad and reminds me of dish soap on the finish.

hotstuff (4864) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JAN 29, 2014
Rated on 12-09-2009 (Bottle) This Cider pours a medium sized head, transparent yellow body and very little carbonation. The Aroma is sweet, apples and hints of tropical fruit. The Taste is sweet, acidic, fruity, and finishes semi-dry. The Palate is clean and this Cider is medium bodied. In conclusion, this is a tasty Cider and one that I would consider drinking again.

MicroGrog (303) - FT: Stale Polotmavý in Queens, New York, USA - OCT 8, 2012
Bottle. Poured a few glasses for myself in between serving patrons at some fest in the Lexington Armory. Clear, golden, sort of browned amber. Fizzy. Smells sharply of skins, acidic fruit, hay & minerals. Very bubbly. Murky apple butter & old chardonnay sweetness. Astringent & even a bit sour. Pretty dry, with burn on the finish. Not my favorite from Farnum Hill.

italarican (1543) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - AUG 17, 2012
Sample from the Farmer’s Market. Of course there are the apple juice notes, but there’s also a pleasant acidity to go with the dry carbonated finish. The extra acidity separates it from the Woodchucks of the cider world.
