badgerben (4549) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - NOV 28, 2008
Light gold color with a thin head. Aroma of apples and honey. The taste is very balanced between sweet and dry apples. Definitely has the sweet, almost honeyish apple taste, but finishes dry. Light taste of old oak.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 20, 2008
Light golden color with a fizzy, diminished off-white head. A nice steady flow of bubbles drift to the surface to maintain the lid of bubbles. Smells like apple sauce. Some peel and hints of apricot and higher alcohols. Light clean feel. Mildly tart apple flavors in the front. Middle dries out with a champagne comparison and some dryness. Seems a touch thin in flavor at times with the dryness. The finish is very dry and the linger has a small return of apple peels and bit of grain. A straight forward, not overly complex cider.

slimchill (1044) - Austin, Texas, USA - NOV 20, 2008
Bottle. Tart apple aroma. Clear with light yellow aroma and a thin but long lasting white head. Full-bodied sweet and tart open with a apple pulp flavor at the center and a tart finish. Good Depth. Nice texture with good carbonation.

Aurelius (4530) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 20, 2008
Straightforward. Tart, astringent, crisp apple flavor, only lightly sweet. Medium light body, tongue turning bitter apple finish. Great bottle, slightly dark gold, clear.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - NOV 19, 2008
550 ml bottle from the Beverage Warehouse in Winooski, VT (November 2008), served a bit above fridge temperature from a 550 ml Sam Smith’s glass. Bubbly, huge white head fizzes away quickly above the roiling, fizzy pale gold and very clear body....dusty, dry, rather tart and somewhat musty/rotten apple aroma, not terribly pleasant, somewhat weak, though real enough I suppose.....definitely more pleasant on the tongue than in the nose, moderately sweet but full of apple rather than sucrose flavor, juicy and pretty full-bodied, with carbonation a little softer and less forced-feeling than the appearance suggests....nothing amazing in the character here, but perfectly drinkable, reasonably balanced in the dry/sweet axis....that’s about it.

Acknud (1081) - Morganfield, Kentucky, USA - NOV 18, 2008
Pours thin with a light body and small head.Sell and taste is strong of apple with moderate sweetness. Color pale yellow.

astrofrk (341) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 2, 2008
Light golden. Small head. Mild apple aroma. Flavor: Sweet apple and yeast balance. Sweet finish. Different.

chandler0201 (648) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - NOV 1, 2008
Aroma of tart and semi sweet apples, probably of the Granny Smith variety. Flavor of apples, sweet and sour a bit, dry almost like champagne oddly enough. For a cider, it sure does not taste like a cider.

nearbeer (3966) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 30, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 10, 2010 500 ml. Gold with a small but lasting head that leaves no lace. Aroma is pure, tart-and-sweet green apples. Flavor is the same, with a bit more earthy apple-peel character. Light body is dry, tingly and watery.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 12/20
ilovedarkbeer (2379) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 30, 2008
Pours a golden yellow color with a small fizzy white head. Nose is apples, vinegar, sugar, tartness. Taste is the same but the apple cider vinegar taste really comes through which makes this pretty gross and almost undrinkable. Not a fan.
