3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a cloudy straw color, with some floaties. Aromas are tart, lambic style with a touch of funk. Moldy basement aromas as well. The sump pump is running. Taste is a dry funk with a sour bite that seems just right. Right on! This is phenomenal. An excellent cider. More carbonation would make this world class.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Has a clear a urine-bayed presentation and no visible head. Smells sour and bittersweet with nothing really coming to mid. Tastes of expensive applesauce, blue cheese, goat milk, white wine dregs, mushrooms and sunflower stems. This beer is definitely better than people have been writing about it lately. Funkier than any other cider I’ve ever consumed. Quite the experience.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours a hazy pale yellow with very little thin white head. Aroma is funky and leathery...mild tartness and acidic citrus...super faint sulfur but not bad. Flavor has great barnyard funkiness...some soury acidic lemon. Mouthfeel is very light and the finish lingers with nice mild funkiness.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(bottle) Pours out a semi-hazed light yellow color with pretty lively carbonation. Aroma is predominately funky green apple, faintly candy-like with a passing resemblance to green apple jolly-rancher. There’s also a salty, briny scent of green olive which is light in comparison to the apple scents. Wood showing up too. Taste is pretty straightforward, with plenty of tart green apple showing up and throughout the finish. A little candy-like particularly upfront. The finish really dries out and yields a good amount of oak. Overall I haven’t had many ciders, but I found this one to be very enjoyable, and I’d definitely purchase this again.
