Have you ever heard someone talk about old fashioned cloudy scrumpy? …one taste of ours and all will be revealed. Our Cloudy Scrumpy is a medum dry cider with a fresh apple aroma, it can be enjoyed by itself or is simply perfect with some bread and cheese.

ClearHead (4) - FINLAND - JUL 4, 2016 does not count
Appearance: quite clear in spite of having turned the bottle twice. Definitely not cloudy. Pressure and carbonation fine. Claimed to be medium dry, but is actually medium sweet. A major difference, and a major disappointment. Aroma has apple, but lacks character. Taste is like your average apple juice from the local supermarket. Which is much cheaper by the way. Never going to fall for this again, that’s for sure.

Benzai (12776) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - APR 9, 2015
Bottle @ weekly tasting shared with Dutchdrebus and Thompson. A bit hazy yellow color, small white head. Smell and taste are both quite soft sort of speak. Quite smooth texture - wise, lightly apple and moderate to heavy sweet. Drinkable.

Simple apple flavor and aroma. Cloudy yellow. Kind of plain, really. Good for a casual drink, but I was expecting more yeast character from the farmhouse name.

(bottle) cloudy golden colour with a frothy white head. aroma of freshly cut grass, vanilla and apple juice, slightly leathery, with a hint of cherry stones and mud. flavour is more apple juice and vanilla, with a light sweetness, some more leather, fried bread, apple skins and a slightly tannic finish. medium-bodied with assertive carbonation.

Hazy orange cider with a brief white foam. Tart apples and a hint of vinegar on the nose. Really nice and full apple flavor. Nice carbonation. Not too sweet and not too dry. I’m really liking this cider. Taste is fresh and sweet.
