It has a slightly vinegar smell. Tastes like a white wine that has turned. NC has some great ciders, this is not one of them.

Brought this cider back from NC. Split with girlfriend. Poured a clear yellow color with a fizzy, disipating head. Aroma is apples. White wine dominates this cider, very much like a white. Okay, perhaps lacking a bit compexity, but perfect as a regular very dry cider.

This cider is really dry and drinks quite easily. I think they put a little too much sulphur in it, it has a sulphur bite and is lacking in carbonation. It drinks more like a Sauvignon Blanc.

Guest tap at Southern Appalachian Brewing. Pours a clear golden with a thin white head. Tart grainy apples with earthy notes. The taste is sweet apples, some graininess and pear. Medium bodied. Decent.

Bottle - bought around new year’s - clear pale lemon color a few small bubbles, no head or lacing to speak of; not much of an aroma, but what I’m picking up are tart apples; taste starts as mildly acidic apples, finishes slightly dry and then disappears; is thinly buttery on the palate. Overall it is drinkable, but not particularly exciting.
