Comments: Incredible product, kind of a guilty product in my case. It is straight atomic orange – sunset coloured and absolutely glowing. Just can’t be natural, but delicious grapefruit rind flavours. Totally unique and different despite the gimmick around it and still firmly tannic.

haddonsman (1234) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2006
Cask (gravity) at the Melton Mowbray CAMRA festival 2005. Looked like Irn Bru, smelt like freshly peeled apples, tasted like heaven. Just a touch of tart, and we all know just a touch is enough ;)

DanielBrown (3924) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 3, 2013
Keg(?) on the Cider Boat (!), Bristol. Looks totally unique. Flat and the colour of unreconstituted carrot juice. Orangey carrot taste - stiff yes, but dry. Really good. Cider eh, bloody hell.

JoeMcPhee (8565) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 1, 2004
From a gravity cask at Tucker’s Grave. Beautiful pink-orange cloudy cider, fantastic looking. Bright apple aroma, some Brett funk, almost still. Flavour is semi-tart, apple, Brett with a semi-sweet finish.

Fukito (790) - Sao Paulo, BRAZIL - DEC 26, 2007
Stillage @ The Rake, november 07. Deep, hazy, shinny orange color. Orange marmalade, musty aroma wth some very slight blasamic and lemony notes. Orange/ apples flavor with some mineral components. Really nice. Mouthfeel is medium, satiating, refreshing and very balanced. Excellent cider that reminds me of faro.

Oakes (12789) - 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.

Ungstrup (29850) - 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.
