3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at EBP. Rumor has it there is both a fresh and a BA version of this cider. The one I had was aged in Dry Fly whiskey barrels. Pours a crystal clear pale gold with no head or lace, a few rising bubbles here and there. Big sweet red apple nose with some vanilla and marshmallow showing as well. Creamy medium body with soft carb. Red apples, vanilla, and marshmallow on the mid palate as well. Mild sweetish finish. Very nice cider.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at Beer Junction (barrel event). From memory, a semi-dry cider with decent barrel notes throughout. Enjoyed this enough that I looked for a bottle (not available), and would buy this if I see it.
