3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to Jstax ! Pours a medium golden color with a finger of quickly fading gaseous bubbles. Nose is sweet baked apple, tart granny smith, touch of earthy peel and sawdust. Palate follows with nice balance of sweetness and tart bitter apple skins. Medium to light carbonation adds some weight to the mouthfeel. Clean finish.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Rare cider. From a bottle. Bib giant head wants to over the top but fades rapidly. In glass there is plenty of co2 bubbles rolling. Some background aroma of vinegar. A little sediment on the bottom of bottle but pour is clear. Yes, quite dry. Almost tastes like my home made cider but its a little more acceptable on the palate. Not your typical sweet woodchuck fer sure, more like the real thing. Not bad overall but could use a little more unfermented sugar in there, still not used to these ciders that are totally fermented out.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22oz bottle, from Heinens... meat sweats is the best way to describe this, nose is slightly sour apples, then the taste fades into rancid salami or expired bacon.
No thanks... It only gets worse, the more I’ve tried from this cidery

Sample at The Pint Room. Pours a mostly clear golden color with a minimal white head, and spotty lacing. Aroma of apples. Medium body with a semi-tart apple character with a bit of honey in the background. The finish is fruity with a green apple aftertaste. Decent overall.
