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.

Bottle: Deep straw. Clear, high carbonation with coarse bead. Slightly cheese. Very fresh almost green acid apples. Bright. Off dry. Moderate acid and length. Easy drinking and refreshing. Like an off dry Riesling. Good balance.

EtTuCthulhu (992) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - MAY 27, 2014
The color is a clear yellow color with a large white head that fades rapidly, and the aroma is a dry mixture of apples and yeast. The taste is quite sweet and slightly sour, and the palate fuses a thin and slick texture, medium-light body, soft carbonation, and a sweet finish.
