ALLOVATE (2469) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 6, 2011
Out the milk carton, room temperature on a blowy evening in Devon. Pours a hazy orange, still. Hefty, heavy, oaken, funk & junk nose; there’s leather, damp horse hair and hessian sacks, poached rhubarb and a little red cider vinegar, really tickles the nose and makes the eyes water in such a good way. Lots of fell fruit and ripe apples fill it out, a definably original waft!
Really dry in the mouth, rough and hairy, softly astringent and vinous, woody with a nice pronounced mousy apple flavour that drops off without a trace in the swallow. Not acidic, but it does dry the mouth out. This is extraordinarily good, a true Scrumpy. Rough and rugged but so easily drinkable. The body is firm, still, smooth. Alcohol remains a mere figment only found on the label, but a few pints of these and I’d be quoting ‘I caun’t read aw write but I can drive a trak’r!’ (7.0%, 1L for 1 pound 99p [bargain], Greendale Farm Shop, The Common, Exmouth, Devon)

Quack-Duck (8072) - Down South, GERMANY - OCT 28, 2010
4 pinkt plastic container from Greendale farmshop. Cloudy amber-golden colour. Slightly more tart and acid than their medium-dry cider. Good.
