3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Served on draft at Whole Foods Charlottesville. Pours a clear golden color with a thin ring of head. Aroma of tart apples, vanilla, tannins and faint brandy notes. The taste is tart apples, wood, earth, faint brandy. "Zesty" is in my notes. Faint heat. A little harsh at first but quite nice once it breathes a bit.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aromas of bourbon whiskey, apple, subtle brandy, subtle almond. Appearance is very pale gold with a very slight greenish tint. Taste is fresh and dry, tart, oaky, and a little boozy. The palate is medium-full-bodied, with fizzy refreshing carbonation, and a clean finish with warming brandy notes.
