Bottle at cider dinner at jimmys 43. Nice pour with light nose of apple skin and champagne. Fruit forward with a bit of residual sugar. Some bitterness and white wine flavors. Sweet finish but enough carbonation to make lovely summer sipper.

Bottle @ home. Filtered, clear, golden orange appearance with no head. Slightly toasty, apple pulpy, mildly dry, vinous aroma. Lightly sour, sweet, toasty apple flavor with a mild to moderately finish. Slightly vinous. Kind of a weird toasty flavor.

On tap @ R&H. Served in a long-stem goblet.
Light, but nearly chardonnay in color. Still, except for a ripple here & there.
Smell is watered down white wine with tart apples & a touch of bubblegum.
Taste is of oxidized white wine, soft florals, tart green apple skins & a wincing astringency. Slightly metallic. Unbashful alcohol. Light on the wood tannins. Delicate carbonation. Dry, chalky finish.
Served too cold & too dry for me anyway.

From Knightly. Ok, so I bought this one for my wife which she’s consuming right now, but thought I’d pour myself a little to see what it’s about. The pour is a golden color... looks like a typical cider to me. This smells like it’s got a lot of white wine character. To be honest, it smells pretty damn good. The flavor offers plenty of sweet but also tart apple, some wood, as well as a citrusy-lemon note. Slightly dry in the finish. As far as ciders go, this one is quite good.
