Tons of oak, nice tartness, and nice caramel notes. Very complex and balanced. Not too dry, not too sweet. Highly carbed.

BA version at Holy Mountain. Champagne yellow, tiny bubbles. Sweet, but good vanilla balance. Smooth, balanced. Lovely.

So, this is great cider. Powerful carbonation. Thin on the tongue. Refreshing tart apple, earth and light smoke, but just ever so faint. A refreshing sipper.

Draft pour at Special Brews. Listed as barrel aged, though it seems like it’s all the same. Pours a clear light gold color with a typical fresh apple aroma. It’s the flavor that makes this one stand out. Bold flavor of apple, berry, and grape. I feel like it has the barrel age feel to it, which adds a bit. Very refreshing, and overall an awesome cider. Loved it.

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.

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.

Nose of tangy green apples, very light brandy barrel notes, a touch of alcohol. Bright light golden, great bubbles, thin head. Flavors of crisp tangy green apple, apple skins, fermented cider notes, tangy, with very light brandy barrel essesnce. Great bright carbonation. Good.
