Sampled from the tap at Torrent Brewing. Pours a clear very pale yellow with a thin white head that dissipates quickly and completely. Aroma has a good amount of sweet apple with a bit of dryness underlying. Flavor is full of earthy apples with a good amount of sweetness.

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 red’s Alehouse. Pours clear apple with no head. Has a bit of apple on the nose. Very dry on the tongue. I’m getting very little residual sweetness here. Finishes clean. Solid for style.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from John’s 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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Red’s 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.
