Love everything from these guys. Delicious single-varietal cider. Juicy, dry, crisp, effervescent, refreshing. Epitome of a table cider for me. Loved it!

This is a great sour cider. It’s not dry and the taste is very lovely. However I wouldn’t say this cider is for everyone. It was nice to discover that I live sour ciders.

Bottle. Pours a straw color with lots if carbonation. Aromas of apple pie. Flavors of fresh crisp golden apples and a little champagne. Simple but intense and really nice.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle @ Sea Cider. Clear golden pour. Awesome baked apple pie and vanilla nose. Nutmeg, mild cinnamon, and juicy apple. Some peach and orange zest as well. Quite sweet on the nose, but the flavor is well balanced. Nice acidity to go with only mild-moderate sugar. Apple pie, light spices, and baked fruit. Hint of golden raisin. Good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma of sweet tart apples, light floral honey notes, and some slight sweet pears too. Solid mouth feel, and good carb. Tart finish, apples skins and fresh apple flesh. Nice stuff.

Bottle - Apple, apricot and some light honey. Clear gold. Light subtle apple and a light fruity sweetness. Dry finish and I wish it tasted as good as it smelled.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Clear, pale yellow, aroma is light, with tart apples. Flavor is mostly tart, but not overdone at all. Clean and crisp, slightly aggressive carbonation. Finishes with a lingering tartness. Lacks interesting flavor notes. Too simple and basic for what you pay for this one. Not one I need to return to.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
750ml purchased at bottleworks.
Aroma of Apple and apple skin with a hint of acidity.
stupid to say but it looks like sparkling apple juice. very effervescent and beautiful golden color.
Tastes of super ripe apples, acidity, apples, apple skins and finishes a little funky. Really complex, subtle and refreshing.
Palate is almost cleansing and certainly refreshing.
Overall I think i enjoy this cider better than some of the other higher rated ones i’ve tried. Incredibly drinkable for 9.5% abv and something I could drink a bottle of. Not sure I’d want to try a whole bottle of rumrunner/prohibition.

NV (check that: marked July 25 2012-07) 9.5% ABV bottle (I have a feeling these entries need to be merged). Pours with a pale straw yellow body, great clarity, medium white ring with evident carbonation. Some legs. Sweet, fragrant and floral aroma, dates and marzipan, bitter orange peel and rum cakes. Bready and a bit yeasty. Brown sugar and biscuits. A very interesting and fragrant cider. Unique. Orgeat. Flavors of almonds, citrus peel and bright apple. Slight fruit cake like and maderarized. Pretty dry, citrusy, bright. Very unique, great natural balance of sweetness, tannin and acidity. Medium carbonation. Great flavor and complexity.
