3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
very fruity, up front and everpresent, lemon lime and apple skin, hints of apricots and pears. little overt apple. alcohol immediately noticeable but never quite obtrusive, perhaps closer to so in flavor/mouth than aroma. tannins are a little hard/bitter, but that’s the only real quibble. nice medium acidity, along with med low carbonation manages to make this quite refreshing. tannins may soften over time; I should revisit with a bit of age as this is very close to excellent.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Refrigerated 75 cl clear bottle with flip-top. Clear pale golden with very small white head. Aroma is light apple, medium carbonation, and no lacing. Taste is dry white vinous and light apple. Alcohol is well covered, but too dry for my taste.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at the cidery
Pale yellow color. Delicate and balanced aroma, fruity and a bit flowery. Semi-dry mouthfeel, well carbonated, the body is not weak, it has a good apple flavor and moderate acidity, a bit of alcohol and light astringency in the final.
Similar to French cider. Good.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Very light color, more carbonation than most ciders, and a better than average aroma of apple and some interesting earthy notes. Flavor is dry, tart, almost sour, with maybe some lemon and grass or hay notes in the background. Finishes dry and tart. You have to like dry ciders to enjoy this one, which I really don’t, so I won’t be coming back to this again.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Notes from Cider week at Bottleworks 2012. Pours golden and extremely effervescent. smells of apples, pears, grapes and acidity/sourness. tastes of ripe, tart, acidic fruit but the effervescence was so incredibly refreshing that I couldn’t stop drinking. If you are looking for a tart champagne, this was great!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
2012 vintage (April 16-2012-19). Completely clear straw yellow hued pour with signs of carbonation but no visual head (unlike their other ciders). Aromas are nicely warming, zesty, fresh baked bread, a bit yeasty, doughy, good acid, tannic apple skins, vibrant fruit. Exceptionally good nose. Flavors are quite fruity, medium dry. A but heavy on the body for what I expected. Slightly carbonic. Vibrant fruit, good strong acid balance with medium tannin. Pretty clean otherwise, very light sulfur. Slight hint of leathery funk as it warms. Very pleasant.
