Drake (11172) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JAN 1, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 21, 2014 75 cL bottle from Beer Run, 12/14/13. This is the 1000th brewery I have rated. Poured from about 2.5 feet. Pours a hazy pale orange color with a thin wisp of white fizzy head. Aroma of tart apples with some barnyard and earth. The taste is tart, dry apples with pepper and an earthy finish. Medium bodied, lingering tartness, low carbonation, refreshing. This bottle will be emptied quickly. Very nice cider.

GT2 (9412) - Oceanside, California, USA - OCT 29, 2013
750mL from P St Whole Foods in DC. Pours low carbonation, fizzing out white soda foam. Beautifully bright glowing straw pour with green highlights. Nose is pretty funky off the bat: some crazy moldy peach, ripened pithy papaya, fresh and tropical like a passionfruit Berliner Weisse. Taste is holy monkey sour, bracing citric tang with fresh strawberry acid, pomelo pulp, strawberry limeade. Quenching, refreshing. Quick, lactic lemonade finish. Extremely light bodied. Really awesome. My first Basque sidra I think and I will now be on a quest for more!
