3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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 shared at home with Teresa. 37.5cl corked bottle, produced May 2015, 6%. Hazy yellow, still, no head. Aroma is Haribo sweets, yellow plums, sour notes, some lime sherbet and a little wood. Body is medium to light, soft carbonation, smooth. Taste is apple, some more yellow plum, watery dimension, pretty dry and a touch acidic, lightly woody. Refreshing yet dry. Good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Jaune moutarde est la robe. Des particules sont en suspension. Un nez de pommes fraîches et détériorées, de fleurs du verger, de vinaigre de cidre et de citron. Une bouche de vin blanc et de pommes, sauvage et campagnarde. Au palais, une sensation de belle légèreté. Une finale sèche de cuir fruité. Une agréable surprise.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle to snifter (shared with the Mrs; thanks Ferris). Looks solid; a slightly hazy gold with very fine sediment and white lacing that dissipates quickly and completely. Smells semi-tart and appley. Tastes like it smells with what seems like a bit of oak and tannins as well. More tart; some lemon too. Pleasantly tart and semi-dry with a medium-bodied mouthfeel. A tasty and complex cider.

Bottle at CiderWISE, pours a cloudy golden orange with a small white head. Nose is very funky and cedary, with a dry apple backing. Flavour is quite complex, with farmhouse funk, earthy notes and a wonderful dryness. Barely any apple notes. Complex and well-balanced. Very nice stuff.
