JBPortland (684) - Portland, Maine, USA - FEB 18, 2014
750ml bottle pours cloudy pale straw yellow with no head. Nose is musty slightly tart apple and traces of oak. Taste is oaky dry apple slices, some white wine grape notes, bits of lemon lime citrus, subtle barrel character. Finish is dry apple with a little bit of sweet tartness and nice soft woody tones. Enjoyable and refreshing.

On tap at Meridian Pint’s DC Beer Week Cider Event. Pours a clear, bright, lime green. Looks like albarino wine, zero head. Nose of apples, some sour mash, lime, a touch of booze, white grape. Flavor is great, apples, white grape, saw dust, lime. Lightly sweet finish.

ben4321 (3824) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - AUG 12, 2013
Location: Draft at Cornerstone (Ogunquit, not College Park, sorry Kramer!), 7/11/13

Aroma: The nose is what you’d expect, apple, some booze, and oak
Appearance: It pours a mostly clear golden color with a small white head
Flavor: The taste is apple and oak, it is semi-tart and not particularly sweet in this style
Palate: The body is fairly light and it has a lively carbonation
Overall Impression: I thought this was an interesting one. The oaking worked nicely, but stays fairly subtle. It isn’t very sweet for the style. It is pretty unique.

Boutip (4656) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 31, 2012
Bottle: Poured a light yellow color cider with strong carbonation. Aroma consists of fresh medium sweet apple with some light oak notes. Taste is also dominated by medium sweet apple juice notes with light oak notes and bourbon notes are even more subtle. Interesting and makes me want to try other cider form those guys.

ReggieDunlap (3030) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 12, 2012
Pours a very pale clear pale yellow with a quickly dissipating thi white head. Aroma has slightly tart apple and bourbon...touch of vanilla. Flavor had a bit of barnyard funk and tart apple before mild bourbon, oak, and vanilla creep in. Mouthfeel is light and the finish has tart apple with a hint of bourbon and dry oakiness.

pantanap (3351) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 25, 2012
33cl bottle purchased at the source, freshly labeled... Pours a pale, mostly clear, straw yellow hue and topped with a thin soapy white head... Vanilla and bourbon pretty abundant in the aroma with a soft cussed base which is fairly subtle compared to the amount of bourbon imparted the cider by the barrel... Flavors are more of the same with a firm bourbon presence that overwhelms the semi-dry and lightly crisp cider base. Lighter bodied with a light airy tartness and semi-lively carbonation. A little too over-barreled for its own good.

italarican (1478) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - JUL 16, 2012
Bottle at Paul’s. Whew... smells like veggie farts! Sulfur, like rotten eggs, and Paul’s ass. We had to debate whether we were smelling the cider or Paul’s ass from 15 minutes before, but since none of the beers smelled like this before or after and it wasn’t in the taste, I guess this one smells like a fart. Flavor is much nicer of apple liqueur and sweet booze. More sugar in the finish. Smell something else and then drink this.

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUL 15, 2012
Bottle at a tasting at Paul’s. Pours a very lightly hazed gold with no head. According to Andy, this smells like farts. I am inclined to agree with him as this cider does have a rather sulfuric and highly farty smell, along with a bit of apples. Medium bodied, sweet and with some light acid. Light acid, more caramelized apples, a bit of apple sugar. Easy drinking, but it’s hard to get past the sulfuric aromas on the nose.

jtclockwork (8047) - , New Jersey, USA - JUL 14, 2012
Bottle at Paul’s. Pours straw yellow. Nose/taste of fresh apple, white sugar and oak. Some booze in the finish. Thin body seems a bit watered down.

Lukaduke (2070) - Portland, Maine, USA - JUN 7, 2012
Pours a pale straw color with slight bubble... Aromas are tart sweet apple a touch of oak and earthy yeast. Flavors follow the nose quite nicely with crisp apple, tangy oak and a touch of earthy booze notes. The only drawback is this cider seems a tad watered down, maybe due to the lack of bubbles.
