3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330 mL bottle from Woodman’s Market, Waukesha, WI. Sparkling pale yellow pour. Aroma of apples and is very reminiscent of a pinot grigio. Nice taste of tart green apples, lemon flesh, and hints of brown sugar. Finish is a bit more tart than most ciders I have tried but it is not off-putting. A nicely done cider.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
GTMW 2015. Dry, but also apple flavor. Very little sweetness at all. Some yeast, dry overall, nearly clear, and carbonation is moderate, giving a good palate with these flavors. I wonder what this would do with some time. Much better than the average American cider.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle and on tap at the cidery on the peninsula. Awesome stuff. Pours golden with bubbles and small white head. Nose is layered fruitiness and light yeast esters. Taste starts just a touch sweet and then comes some yeast complexity of earth and just the lightest bit of cellar, finishes with a mild tartness and flavor of freshly cut apple peels. Tastes very well crafted and made of saavily selected fruit.

750ml swingtop bottle. Pale cider color. This one is fairly dry and tart, nice effervescence, supposedly 34ish different apples all grown on washington island. Nice stuff.
