Wulfstan (509) - California, USA - OCT 15, 2009
This is absolutely one of the best ciders I’ve ever had. It is unusually bweautiful for a cider, golden with a very large white head steadily dissipatin to a thin,. lasting head and elaving even a few hints of lace. Most ciders have only a thin, airy head and, regardless of the head size, no head retention whatsoever, much less lace. The aroma is full, ripe green apples. The taste is full and crisp. It has ripe green apples, slightly tart, along with ripe sweet red apples. It’s not too sweet and not too dry, with great balance and lasting flavur. A light yeatsy character builds to the finish, really adding to the apple in the lng aftertaste. It has unusually good complexity for a cider.

Aroma is almost entirely apple with some slight sugar. Taste, again, almost completely apple with a smooth finish. Appearance is a clear gold with almost no head.

Bottle. An average Apple Cider. Clean and crisp with a lively carbonation, and a nice apple presence in aroma and flavor.

16oz Bottles at Track 84 - Warwick, RI. Sugar and malic acid nose. Blunted relatively generic apple aroma and initial flavor. Clean, bright, and with a decent balance of acid and sugar without being too sweet, nor too blandly dry. Overall, however, the apple character is pretty weak. But, I’m grateful to have an organic cider available that isn’t Woodchuck.

drjay44 (2868) - Salida, Colorado, USA - JAN 31, 2015
500 ml. bottle. Pours a thin, poorly retained, off white head, without lacing, over a very slightly hazy light gold (SRM 4) body.....nose is apple juice and little else......taste is moderately sweet, apple juice with light acid.....mouth feel, light body, slight acid, no alcohol, light carbonation. This is obviously an apple based beverage. It is quite simple in presentation and not particularly interesting. BJCP 5/2/10/4/5

Bottle from Beers Of Europe [150115]
Light golden, clear, bubbly white head dissipates quickly to thin film
Aroma - Little on nose, very slight cider apple
Taste - Light cider apple, sugars, simple flavour
Palate - Medium carb, light body, soft sweet, light tart. Finish as main flavour, clean, bit more juice in finish
Overall - Rather plain and ordinary

Bottle. Clear light gold pour with no head. Aroma is apple and maybe a hint of cheap white box wine. Light crisp palate with a bit of carbonation. Taste is slightly sweet, slightly tart. This is okay.
