3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Wonderfully refreshing, tart and slightly sweet. A bit simpler than the Wild Washington.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml bottle, marked "Dry" in addition to Tieton Blend Cider.
Very light pour, gently sparkling. Tart musty nose with white wine. Extremely clean flavors, dry and refined but not particularly tart. This is a very easy drinker and worth a revisit every now and then.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours translucent, light amber with a few bubbles. Nice, rather complex aroma showing lots of skin. Med body, or close. It’s tannic/astringent, so much so that it suggests wood. And it is very dry. Nice change from many American ciders. Oh, and there are apple flavors!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear golden body. Sweet ripe golden apple, cinnamon, mild sulfer aromas. Light bodied. Semisweet apple, yeast, sulfer flavors--not bad.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750, capped. Pours a crystal clear pale gold with no head, lace, or legs to speak of. Very intermittent occasional nucleation activity. Pleasant mild golden apple nose, more like a slightly lemony chardonnay than an apple cider, especially given the stillness. Creamy, medium, nearly still body. Light lemon, golden apple, red apple, and very faint green apple on the mid-palate--immediately makes you wonder what you could do with pork, chicken, or even fish if you used this as a replacement for white wine in a sauce.
