3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at BCS. Thanks to Yoshida-san for sharing. Hazy golden yellow with a small white head that lingers throughout. Wonderful yeast nose with oak, vanilla, strawberries and cream along with light apple and floral notes. Taste is quite similar to the nose with above average carbonation and a medium body. Finish is sherry-like with creamy notes. Quite nice.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Kind of a simple palate, honey and sweet apple flavors mostly, a little dry to balance, strong though, weird earthy barnyard yeast notes muddle the cider

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at NAOBF. Pours a somewhat cloudy yellow color with a small white head. A big sweet oaky nose. The flavor is apples, vanilla, a bit of sweet dry tannins. Comes in a bit oddly with the honey compounding the sweet earthy apple, not cloying. Interesting. Very raw.
