1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Tasting from May 2009.
Pours sparkling medium gold with hefty CO2 bubbles rising randomly to atmosphere. Vinegary, sour pulped fruit nose, salty and mineral-like with a waft similar to that of urinal cakes, not pleasant. Aroma plays in the mouth with some wishy washy notes of dank liquor, sand grittiness? and that unsettling urinal-cake thing I canít ignore just makes this nasty. Very mild apple peel notes bare a mention, no real fruit flavour. Luckily it finishes short and considerably crisp, the body light and carbonation moderate. A re-rate to be fair as I donít think this meager cider travels too well in the clear bottles! (34cL, BB16/05/09, Franklin St Liquor, Bunbury)

Refreshing, crisp, not too macro and 3%! What do people want? Blood? This is much better than raters below will have you believe. Very drinkable, approachable and no off tastes that I usually get with mass produced cider.

Clear 330 ml bottle at home. Sparkling, clear golden body with a short lived, fizzy white head. Pulpy, fruity, candy, aceton aroma. Fresh gooseberries and candy esters in the mouth. Is there something off about it? Fruity and acidic. Juicy, soft drink texture. Light body.
