COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hand pressed from a select variety of apples, this is the champagne of hard ciders - crisp, dry and fresh. Poured over ice, it is an exilarating experience.

Bottle shared by MrPickles...thanks Andy! - Pours pale clear yellow with very little head. Nose is light and dry, with a bit of apple cider vinegar. Taste is dry and light, with a little overripe apple, light sweetness, gentle carbonation, and a bit of tartness. Light and soft in the mouth with gentle carbonation. Not bad.

This is the good stuff. I went to school near their brewery center and biked down there many a time to pick up hard cider, as well as their unpasteurized unfermented fresh squeezed cider. Apple and yeast aromas in the Hard Cider. Not particularly sweet. Perfect refreshing mouthfeel with a bit of apple tannin that lingers and a good amount of carbonation.

Draft at redís Alehouse. Pours clear apple with no head. Has a bit of apple on the nose. Very dry on the tongue. Iím getting very little residual sweetness here. Finishes clean. Solid for style.

adnielsen (9285) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 23, 2013
Bottle @ home via the artist formerly known as pepsiedcan. Iowa wael tick. Thanks Andy! Pours a bit hazy yellow appearance with a spritzy white head that has no retention. Sweet red delicious, champagne bubbly, light white wine, pear aroma. Refreshing, spritzy, sweet apple juice flavor. Definitely chuggable. Easy to pound and honestly just begs to drank as fast and as immaturely as possible.

Another fine Iowa tick provided by Andy. Clear pale yellow color with a thin layer of white foam. Certainly has some apple aroma, lots of yeast, some alcohol, and a hint of spice. Light tartness, some fruit skins, and somewhat dry. The flavor is just okay. Apple fruitiness, some drying fruit skin, a little yeast, and very mild tartness.

MicroGrog (303) - FT: Stale Polotmavż in Queens, New York, USA - OCT 11, 2012
Bottle from Johnís Grocery. Sam PP glass. Clear, vibrant, pale wheat color. Smells of pears, cider vinegar, & yeast. Has a little bit of that strange Babycham thing going on. Really, really crispy. Loads of vanilla. Subtle pear & hay. Tart eating apples & plastic in the back. Low acid. Noticeable sulfites. Refreshing stuff that I would gladly pick up a sixer of.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - SEP 11, 2012
On tap at Redís Ale House in North Liberty, IA. Pours a crystal clear, straw colored body with a thin, fizzy, white head that dissipates quickly and leaves a light lacing. Aroma is medium sweet apples with a lightly tart and acidic note. Flavor is similar. Medium sweet apples up front with a light acidic tarntess before this finishes crisp, mostly dry, and balanced before leaving a medium length aftertaste. Light body and a moderately fizzy carbonation. Overall, nothing spectacular, but a solid cider. Somewhat sweet and lightly tart with a refreshing, crisp acidic finish.

MacBoost (1328) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - AUG 1, 2012
750ml from pepsiedcan. Pours a clear champagne color with a short lived head. Aromas of apples with some Belgian yeast type smells. Taste is sweet apples, slight tartness with an apple juice finish. No alcohol detected. This is my first cider, and Iím not really all that impressed... I guess I would prefer something much drier and more tart (if thatís possible) in a cider. I donít know, maybe itís just not my style.
