4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a pale straw golden with a hint of blush and numerous tiny white bubbles forming the thinnest white ring around the edge of the glass. Nose involves a sharp crisp apple note, zesty and spiciness Iím guessing from the yeast, some pie crust, floral notes, a waxy quality, and other difficult to describe esters. Fairly sweet flavor with a fair tartness, well balanced. Light to medium bodied, fairly actively carbed, waxy, with a clean, crisp tart finish. Excellent, incredibly well constructed and enjoyable.

Light and slightly sweet apple cider type flavor with a fairly tart dry finish. Alcohol is not very noticeable though. Very smooth and drinkable. Quite enjoyable. This is the best hard cider I have tried thus far.

Bottle from Total Wine, Sacramento. Lately I have been reminiscing about my days on the family fruit farm in Michigan, as us old folks are wont to do, so I am rating some good ciders noted in Kenís weekly column. This one pours cloudy amber and actually has a beige head that goes away quickly. There is a nice apple flavor with a tangy fermented finish. Tastes a lot like the cider I used to press by hand, although J. K.ís apple variety is unknown to me..

Dense, steady haze with thinnest ringed head. Firm carbonation visible but didnít sweep through. Good and honest mulched Apple core nose, not too gassy. Smoothly sweet initial taste, almost winey blended white groggy with a slight nutty casing. Slickest juicy burn, heaped in fruit and clean fresh near sherry wink. Very sumptuous, would love this fresh off the farmhouse steps.

Looks like I took notes on this one in December of last year, but neglected to enter the notes, good thing that Winterruption cider reminded me to go back and look for notes.
Pours a golden color with a small white head that fizzles out, the cider has lots of tiny bubbles.
The aroma is mostly red apples, some soft spice, & some nice floral notes. Mostly itís sorta apple-juice like.
The flavor is a tad on the sweet side for what I normally dig on, but itís got lots of red apple flavor, some mild floral bitterness, bright acidity and a nice level of tartness.

Hazy golden orange pour. Nose has an interesting spice to it...cinnamon? Kind of apple pie-like. Sweet fruit, yeast, apple, and a light tartness and acidity. The flavor has a nice sweet apple character, some spice, yeast, and mild acidity on the finish. Actually a little bit dry on the back end.

Do you like farm stand apple cider, but always wish it got you drunk? Then this ciderís for you! Good luck drinking more than one though. It gets sweeter, the more you drink and itís unfiltered so you fill up fast. Big points for being made out of nothing but organic apples and yeast.
