COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Wild English derives its name from wild yeast fermentation of English bittersweet cider apples, including Kingston Blacks and Yarlington Mills grown at Sea Cider Farm. This sparkling amber cider is ultra dry, robust and earthy, with distinctive tannins in the traditional Herefordshire style.

weihenweizen (1732) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - JUL 3, 2014
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.

fiulijn (14549) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 2, 2014
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.

Travlr (11812) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 4, 2013
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.

after4ever (6127) - Brier, Washington, USA - JUN 1, 2013
750 swingtop, capped. Pours a clear bright medium gold with no head or lace. Bright tart apple skin nose. Creamy medium body with minimal carb. Tart, almost puckery mid palate. Very much on the tarter side, closer to a granny smith, easily, as table apples go. Closer to a true cider apple base, much less sweetness, no apparent white sugar. Crisp tart finish that lingers a bit.

MicroGrog (303) - FT: Stale Polotmavý in Queens, New York, USA - DEC 29, 2012

Resealable 750 from letspour dot com. May 11, 2012 sticker on the bottom. Tall Rare Vos tumbler.
Muddled, mellow gold body. Quick spritz. Solid activity.
Yeasty, green, acidy, fermenting floral/grass/mulch-like funk.
Tin-y, twangy, & a touch sour. Sour apple chips & a little spicy zest. Prickly carbonation. Dry mouth. Hidden alcohol. Tart, yeasty, vanilla finish.
Good, but not $20 good.

Lazerlobe (15) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - DEC 19, 2012
Picked up at Whole Foods Bellevue. There is a light layer of sediment at the bottom of the bottle. It looks like the cider could develop over time. Beautiful light haze on an agitated pour. Taste is upfront with cider apples but there is an undercurrent of funk from the brett that is both drying and complex. Very light bodied but the carbonation helps the cider stay lively and dance on the tongue. Nice wild finish. A very well made and interesting cider.
