tom10101 (3614) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 22, 2014
Bottle (750 ml). Thanks to Thomas for this one! Slightly hazy pale yellow with a low quickly collapsing white head. Aroma is soft with hay, mild apple presence and light notes of funk. Taste is also mild a little more apples than in the aroma, hay and a little more funk too (still at a very low level though). Light/medium body, but not watery. Almost still. Moderately dry finish. Very easy drinking and a nice - mild - lambic-like character. I would buy this regularly if it was available in my area.

GothGargoyle (1574) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 19, 2014

rbrazell (1702) - Florida, USA - JUN 2, 2014
Bottled 26/06/12. Graciously given to me by Rick! Hazy light golden with a tiny white head fading to a ring. Super gnarly aroma, barnyard funk, sweat socks, grandmas toes and acidic pear. Very sharp. Flavor up front is herbs, fading into pears, apples, lots of funk then ending with lemongrass and winter mint. Deliciously complex and unlike any cider I’ve ever tasted.

jayzz (482) - Illinois, USA - APR 19, 2014
Has an aroma of a freshly cut wheat field on a fall day. A dry cider that is too deliciously unique to describe fully. Yum.

> A top level wild, mildly sour cider with smoke and starfruit

[ Bottle ][ Appalachian Vintner Asheville ][ 375mL ][ Rastar Tulip ][ $13 ][ 2/21/14 ]
>> Pours sparkling, cloudy neon green with no foam. Nose is similar to some of the best of the best Norman ciders with starfruit and smoke. Flashes of Brett and wild yeast blend. Really beautiful, about as fresh and complex as cider can be. Taste is extremely light bodied, low acid, starfruit, pineapple, lemonade. Super refreshing. Should be consumed by the liter like a real sidra. Palate is thin, but it is clean and brightly sour so can’t really complain. The best Norman ciders seems to have a one up on this one for palate, but almost identical in aroma and color. Loving it if not for the rarity and price here in the US. Never seen it for sale before in my life until now.

<!> pricey, rare in the US, really low body like limeade

wedgie9 (2501) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 21, 2014
Tasted many times over the past couple of years, this is one of my favorite ciders. This bottle came from Midtown. Pours hazy dark yellow with no head. The nose is more sour apple than anything else, but there is a bit of tart lemon and it definitely has some funky yeast to it. The flavor is the same, very dry with some tannic structure, green apple, tart lemon, with a ton of funky barnyard and cheesy yeast. The body is light with a bit of carbonation and a long funky tart apple finish.

Bottle from River City Cellars on 05/07/2011. Hazy golden body with a small white head. Sweet apple, tart and vanilla aroma. Tart fruit, vanilla, and apple flavor with some oak hints. Medium light body with moderately low carbonation.

nuplastikk (4918) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 11, 2013
Bottle shared by Levi. Very unique lemony edges. Sour apple, lemony tartness. Very tart, not a traditional cider. Sour cider mix. Very cool.
