COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Golden, bubbly, with subtle sweetness and more intensity and complexity than Farmhouse. Smells of a delicious array of fruits, with mysterious aromatic notes that defy words. Flavor offers a life-enhancing, appetite-sharpening balance of sweetness, acid, astringency, and fruitiness. Alcohol content 7.4% by volume. Available in 750 ml bottle with full cork closure

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 (4058) - 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.

The smell is apples, fruits, tart, and butter. The look is clear, golden, no head. The taste is sweet, fruits, apples, and ok.

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 (1475) - 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.

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JAN 30, 2012
Bottle. Pours a clear amber with a thin white head that diminishes nearly immediately. Soft apple on the nose, a touch of caramel. Medium bodied, a touch empty, but still with a bit of flavor. Caramel apple and a touch of acidity. Tart apple, apple skin tannins. Finishes with some bright acidity and lingering tartness. Nice.

auerbrau (3157) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - NOV 6, 2011
750mL Bottle, poured at CiderDays. Steven’s work usually impresses me, but this was rather middling. A little of this, a little of that, a very averaged bottle in my opinion. Easy to engage, but not much to hold. Clean, solid, and a bit peppery. Fresh, but maybe a nip too sweet.

beerbill (3333) - Laurel, New York, USA - OCT 14, 2011
750 ml bottle. Pours a crystal clear gold with a fizzy white head that quickly dissipates. Pleasant aroma of apple. The flavor is apple and is lightly sweet and tart. Moderate carbonation. Nice solid cider.

TheGent (656) - , Massachusetts, USA - SEP 12, 2011
a cork caged bottle enjoyed all to myself. Poured into a wine glass. Light lager color clear yellow. faint bubbles showing. The aroma is a light sweet honey apple along with volcanic rock and grass. flavor is a little sweet followed by some well balanced tanins. great sharp tiny bubble texture. and yes a semi dry finish. very good cider. Could drink two bottles.

oteyj (2130) - New Hampshire, USA - AUG 25, 2011
Clear golden pour with a thin white head. Lots of carbonation arising from the body. The nose holds over ripened apples, apple skins, floral pear, and champagne like fruitiness. The flavor holds super dry apple flesh, clover honey, grapes, and grassy perfume like florals. Light body with ample caressing carbonation and a dry finish.
