Glider has just a little residual sweetness up front. Due to our late start in 2010 we missed the apple harvest in Colorado. Weíre using mostly Washington apples this year and have them pressed on the western slope for a fresh juice. Weíre also blending in some bittersweet apple juice from New England to add a true cider apple character. Starting with the 2011 harvest we will use all the apples we can from Colorado.

Bottle. Extremely pale in hue, the color of pear pulp. Perfect clarity. Aroma gives off notes of Fuji apples; flavor has soft sweetness and just a bit of acidity. Not a ton of complexity here, but good balance and drinkability.

On tap at Denver Biscuit Co, Colfax. Pours a golden color with no head. Looks like Apple juice. Aroma is tart, with Apple notes, hints of vinegar and fresh cut fruit. Taste is typical cider, dry, tart and more of a green Apple flavor. Palate is light, medium carbonation. Nothing too wild.

The regular is still fairly dry compared to many sweet ciders Iíve had. I havenít tried their dry version, but I fear it might be to dry. Very tasty cider that Iíll drink lots of this summer.

notalush (5512) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 18, 2011
Very clear gold pour - looks like a white wine - minimal lace - nose is mildly sweet and semi tart - earthy apple skin and flesh, light vanilla - crisp and light in flavor - a bit tart and mildly acidic up front - very mild apple flavor - moderately tannic - a touch like a semi-sweet desert wine - a light bit of vanilla on the tail end - crisp and refreshing, but lacks the earthy complexities of the better ciders I have had.

This phenomenal cider is as fresh and light as sunshine itself. The aroma is the scent of a freshly sliced apple. The color is pale and shimmering with effervescence. The taste is crisp, delicate. An excellent accent to any meal or on its own. The palate will combine well and combines the savory flavors of beer with the anticipated fragrant welcome of a wine. Overall this is the best non-grain beer I ever sampled. I prefer it to beer as it isnít filling. But where wine on itís own leads to a meal and often requires one, this light draft leaves the drinker unburdened by the heavy feel of most fermented beverages. A delight!
