CanIHave4Beers (3233) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - JUL 24, 2014
This cider here, this cider I had @ the Grand Tasting....
Pours very hazy, very pale, & very still.

The aroma is earthy with plenty of tart fruit. It’s got a bit of apple character and a lot of dusty cellar type of stuff going on.

The flavor is super tart, almost bracingly (but enjoyably) acidic. It’s got a fair amount of apple skin, and apple flesh with some earthy minerallity.

Pretty cool stuff.

MrChopin (3258) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 19, 2014
Tepid murky lemon. Huge Granny Smith nose, skin and flesh, lightly sugary. More balanced flavor is honey and green apple, sticky light grass and grape sweetness mid, moderate acid through sticky, doughy finish with more skin sourness balancing. Quenching and crisp with enough dryness to temper the sweeter grape notes, #1 amidst 40+ US sours in the same day.
