TURDFERGUSON (3945) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 4, 2007
Bottle from weaver street market. Took a chance on a local product.Pours light like white wine with no head. Havent found too many ciders with a lasting head so I cant take points off for that. Nose is dry with fresh apples and oak. Flavor and mouthfeel are also very dry with notes of sweetness. Alcohol noted, but not a disturbance. Kinda bland and watery at times. Pretty good, but I guess I was hoping for a little more.
