COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Flagship is a first for North America - a commercial cider free of added sulphites. Fermented slowly with Champagne yeast, this German-style ultra dry still cider offers a nose of anise and cinnamon framed by soft tannins and lively acidity.

Tasting at Matt’s, 7.1% ABV
Pale blond color. Very nice aroma, apples, citrus fruit, light hazelnut. The mouthfeel is very dry, quite acidic, with too simple cider/apple flavor, very lemony. Weak but sour final.
Not exciting.

mcberko (9214) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 21, 2015
750mL bottle, pours a clear pale yellow with a small white head. Aroma is very sweet, with baked apple pie, caramelized sugar, and some light champagne yeast notes. Flavour is quite dry and tart, with dry apples, champagne yeast, some light dry caramel notes, and a little cinnamon. Medium carbonation, with a mouthfeel that begins somewhat sweet and finishes dry. Very nice stuff.

Ferris (7576) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 9, 2015
Bottle - Sweet and tart Apple. Pale yellow gold. Very tart, almost vinegar like and a dry finish. As a sour fan I can appreciate this, but not sure it work in a cider setting.

michaelinwa (632) - Bothell, Washington, USA - SEP 7, 2013
Bottle. Pale, white wine color, mild carbonation, and a mild aroma of green apples. Flavor is light and dry, though only mild tart. There is very little sweet in this. Clean and crisp, but very simple, and far to pricey for what you get.

mages64 (42) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 6, 2013
Fairly still golden cider. bone dry and tannic with apple stem, apple skin, white wine, sauvignon, wood, and pears. Incredibly fun cider to drink a bottle of myself. went great with salmon.

after4ever (6635) - Brier, Washington, USA - OCT 6, 2012
750, capped, with a swingtop for later. Pours a pale gold with a very brief sizzle of bubbles on top. Mild green apple nose with very soft spice accents. Creamy medium still body. Nice green apple mid palate, slightly more to the tart side but still showing plenty of sugar. A bit of pucker there but fairly subdued. Mild finish. Nice stuff.

bvc (1180) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - JUL 14, 2012
Bottle. Very lightly straw tinted, still. Bright light acidic nose, slight smoke, bit of musty mold. Watery body, on the drier side, oak tannins, light apple and a hint of lemon. Hard to say a lot about this one.

sulawang (706) - British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 22, 2011
lemongrass on the nose. 0-dry and crisp. The flavour is a bit on the light side, though provides easy drinking and pairs nicely with that too salty mushroom risotto.

Enniskillen (2044) - Salinas, California, USA - JAN 17, 2009
Nice gold color. Aroma is a apple sweetness, balanced by a mild tartness, honey, light oak, a bit dry in the aroma. Taste is a light bitterness, mixed with a golden delicious type sweetness. Pretty mild for 8%.

tiggmtl (4545) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 29, 2008
Very dry and wine-like nose has some apples and floral honey. Clear and still deep golden coloured body. Very dry and quite tart in flavour although I would not say it is sour. Certainly quite wine-like although it does at times verge on puckering. Some woody character in the aftertaste. Wine glass. Just above fridge temperature. Bottle (Brewery Creek, Dec-07).
