3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle @ Home. Sort of a champagne color here and very little foam, even with a vigorous pour. Pretty funky stuff. A lot of herbs, some plastic, and bright fruit driven acidity of grape, apple, and citrus peel. Maybe a little bit of a musty quality and definitely some barnyard. Woody, damp, and earthy, yet still crisp and fruity. Interesting stuff.

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.

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.

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.
