4.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Rustic, dry, funky, earthy. Reminded me a bit of a Spanish Sidra without too much acidity. Love the wild fermentation aspect of it.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at CiderWISE, pours a clear pale golden blonde with a small white head. Nose is subtle, with some wild yeast and dry apples. Flavour is bone dry, with quite a high farmhouse funk factor, mouth-drying apples, and medium acidity. The funk is very pleasing, complementing the dryness expertly. Couldn’t drink much of this, due to the huge dryness, but it’s very well-done.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Elegant swing-top 750 ml bottle.
Light gold pour with a very short-lived white head. Rich musty aroma, recalling the browned apples laying on the ground of a late fall apple orchard. A decided sharpness of green apple as well. Some brown sugar in the aroma -- but not in the extremely dry flavor. Tart almost to the point of mouth-puckering, again green apple, leather, lemon rind. House character, plenty wild/rustic. Tasty but perhaps a stretch at the price point.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Refrigerated 75 cl clear bottle capped with flip top. Aroma is very light apple, medium body, no carbonation, and no lacing. Taste is light apple and dry finish. Expected more based on ratings, but a big fan of dry ciders.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at the cidery, 7.2% ABV
Deep blond color. Nice aroma of apples with light vinegary note. Dry mouthfeel, weak body; too acidic, with some vinegar and acetone. A bit astringent in the end, lemony.
Not very elegant.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle courtesy of ajax25g to celebrate government shutdown day 4, and also his finding a new job in DC, an odd combo. Bottle. Bright clear gold color, champagne head. Aroma of earthy apples, raw bread dough. Taste is dried apple skins, dried lemon skins, bone dry finish. Very tasty.
