Travlr (13167) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 8, 2013
Bottle sample. Hazy yellow color, pretty much flat. Aroma of mild barnyard, dusty fruit and apple skins. Taste is full bodied fruit with a slight edge of tartness. Not as funky as the Ribela we had just before this, but pretty tasty.

bhensonb (11489) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 26, 2010
Bottle from Corti Brothers in Sacramento, CA. Marked 2008. Pours Hazy gold with a few temporary bubbles. Nice slightly sour apple aroma. Near medium body. It is mildly sour and somewhat oaky and astringent. I could believe it spent some time in wood. Quite tasty. Reminds of Flemish sour ales. Sort of. Maybe of RR stuff. Sort of.

hopscotch (9487) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 21, 2009
Bottle… October ’09 O-Town Throwdown... Cloudy straw-colored cider with no head. The funky aroma offers sour and fallen apples, vanilla and hints of cinnamon and clove. Medium-bodied with a rumor of carbonation. The flavor is straight-up sour apples and vanilla. I don’t know where all the vanilla is coming from, but I dig it. Oak aged, maybe? Big thanks to the TheCheeseMan for sharing this bottle!

daknole (9437) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - OCT 29, 2009
cheeseman again! Aromas of apple and light lemon. Flavor has tons of tart apples, light sourness and some vinegar notes. Unique and pretty damn good!

Drake (8980) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - SEP 15, 2012
750 mL bottle as a birthday present from Mom. Thanks! Pours a slightly hazy yellow color with floating particles. The head fades immediately but I didn’t pour it traditionally so I’m not going to knock it for that. Aroma of big fruity, floral apple notes, tart apples, herbal and spicy notes. The taste is tart apples, vanilla, grainy notes, herbal notes, spicy finish. Quite nice.

GT2 (8741) - San Diego County, California, USA - FEB 21, 2014
> 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

JoeMcPhee (8551) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 14, 2013
Bottle at Murray’s Cheese Bar. Slightly hazy golden pour. Aroma is funky and slightly medicinal. A lot of tannic character and some nice bright tartness. Very dry and a bit Brett as well. Lovely sidra
