Keg only.
NOTE: This is a sparkling cider. The cask / bag-in-box version is still.
A sparkling keg cider with plenty of scrumpy soul. Not every cloudy cider has to be a challenge, Devon Mist is a gentle joy. Rich autumnal fruit with a perceptible sparkle and satisfying finish Devon Mist has been a real revelation this year. Christened with some style at the Aeon Festival in August, Mist has some very devoted followers, you may just become one of them.

caesar (5202) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - AUG 26, 2014
Bottle from Biernavigatie, no BB date, large sample, served in a tulip glass. Slight hazy pale yellow color, short frothy disappearing head. Aroma of sweet candy sweets, apple, citric acid, slight wood, hint of strawberry. Quite sweet in taste, soda pop. Sticky on the palate. I was hoping for a funky cider. But this is just soda pop. Way too much carbonation, way too sweet.

50 cl bottle @ PBF
Aroma has ripe, finnish apples and a floury feeling. Also some fruit sugar. Rather leathery palate. Flavour has ripe apples and a floury feeling. Too floury, I expected more. I like the taste of real apples here, but this is just too light.

Countbeer (4539) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - AUG 18, 2013
Bottle: Served in a low taster glas: A small white lively sparkling foamy lacing that disappears right away and leaves a headless clear yellow golden colored cider in my glass. Aroma has some subtle tones like apple juice and with a slight hint of something sweet and just a sprinkle of something sweet wood dusty. Flavours of apples, sweeter apples, some dust, sweet wood, apple compote, apples on wood and apple juice. Close to apple juice but you taste some sweet dusty wood tones that makes it more cider than apple juice. Aftertaste is sweet apple with some sweet wood, yeast and sweet dust. Medium to fuller carbo, sparkling mouthfeel, medium bodied and a light watery lighter creamy texture.

oh6gdx (20618) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 21, 2013
Bottled@Black Door, Helsinki. Yellowish golden colour with a small white head that disappears quite fast. Aroma is sweet and green apples along with some mild vanilla and a bit sugary feeling to it. Flavour is sweet apples, with some tart apples as well. Nicely carbonated, where the carbonation helps the quite sweet cider get to a refreshing level. Good thirst quencher, and not so sugary in the flavour.

TimE (3261) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAY 16, 2013
Odd that we can get this in Japan consider how rare the cider is. No head, hazy golden color, moderately sweet apple nose with a touch of spice. Sweet mouth. Nice balance, but lacks complexity. Quenching, but undistinguished.

Leighton (11319) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 13, 2013
Keg at the Catford Bridge Tavern, London. Pours clear (not cloudy) gold, lightly effervescent. Sugary green apple aroma. Medium sweet flavor, a touch syrupy though still bright, apple sugars. Light to medium bodied with fine, spritzy carbonation. Sweet finish, ripe green apples, touches of white sugar. So so.
