transparent water-straw, head dies fast. Honey and green apple skin nose. Front palate stings with earthy, mossy oddity. plenty of green apple acid across front palate, thin body is light but buoyed by acid. Watery across body, light sugar and effervescence not 7.7%.

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.

Gerbeer (2976) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 10, 2014
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.

brokensail (15468) - Dublin, California, USA - AUG 27, 2014
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.
