a_cross (600) - Poole, Dorset, ENGLAND - JUN 23, 2013
At Foresters, Brockenhurst; cloudy dark impenetrable orange colour - couldn’t decide whether it looked attractive or disgusting; dry, lightly sweet; quite a bitter finish; apple peel more than apple flesh to this untrained palate; nothing amazing, but made quite a nice alternative to the beer in this Ringwood dominated town.

JefVerstraete (1285) - BELGIUM - APR 15, 2013
Red/orange colour, like grapefruit juice. Sweet and sour, very fruity but dry and bitter finish.

DruncanVeasey (7160) - NUNEATON, Top 18, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2013
Cask handpull, The Lime Kilns, on the A5, nowhere, LE/CV borders, 14/01/13. Umbongo orange with no head. Appletise (oops, nearly the A-word there), almond, mouldering lawn, hum of wasp, slight tannic aroma. Sourish, mildly tannic with calamine, marzipan and nasty cocktail hints. Somewhat rough and boozy. Drying finish. Not for me.

HenrikSoegaard (10508) - Randers, DENMARK - OCT 24, 2011
Draught at Montagu Pyke, London. Strange (nice) dark orange colour. Powerfull apple aroma and flavor. Very dry. Fresh and barnyard notes. Long finish. Oily palate. Great cider.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 6, 2011
On cask at the Sir John Moore in Glasgow. Pours a cloudy orange colour, reminiscent of Australian Fanta, with a lacy white head. Aroma of oranges, apples and orange sherbet. Similar orange and apple flavours. Very low carbonation with a dry finish and a soapy orange rind linger. Just OK.

HogTownHarry (6064) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 20, 2011
Cask at The Wenlock Arms - Aug 20 2011. Really does pour a reddish hue, not much head - 4/5 for the unique colour. Aroma is pleasing, in a funky acidic way - apple with citrus or underripe mango, lemon tartness - taste follows, more lemon and ripe "red" apple, appleskin, maybe a hint of grapeskin. Fairly thick body, quite acidic, mild carbonation, and a longish sour/acidic finish, didn’t have a lot of "apple" character in the aftertaste. It grew on me.

dynamiteninja (1492) - Richmond, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2011
Cask. The Last Plantagenet, Leicester. No head, orange. Apples, watery. Bittersweet, with a long bitter finish. Not one of my favourites.

Ungstrup (29230) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 12, 2011
Cask. A red cider - like Mette’s former hair color. The aroma is dominated by apples, but also with a light note of vinegar. The flavor is sweet and is dominated by apples, leading to a tart finish.

Oakes (12446) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 6, 2010
Pinkish-red colour and cloudy. Bright apple aroma. Fruity, with lots of apple skin, providing a light tannin balance. Juicy, and has a relatively sweet finish. Quite complex.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - SEP 2, 2010
Take-away cup, in Cheddar. Distinct color, red-orange. Ripe papaya flesh/ blood orange punch color. Smells like more than just apple. Has berries and pears too. Sweet, flat, and juicy. Tastes more like a hard punch than a cider. Playful, fun, and fruity. Mild and smooth.
