750mL Bottle. Thanks for sharing, Amy. Aroma has a nice crackle of fresh apples and the oaken booze. Flavors have a real farmhouse sensation to me, without getting too wild. Oak, apples, earth, citric acid, and some hay. Unfortunately, the palate completely falls apart in the finish, lacking the necessary turn or bite to prevent it from just evaporating into nothing needs. With a little more sweetness, acid complexity, or tannin, this could be quite a cider.

porterhouse (1581) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - AUG 30, 2011
(750 ml bottle, batch 2, date 6/21 from Rising Tide) Pours hazy pale yellow with a bit of fizzy white head that is quickly gone. Light champagne bubbliness. Aroma of sweet and sour apple. Mouthfeel is smooth, perhaps aided by the barrel-aging. Also a little husky, a little dry. Light champagne-like carbonation. Flavor of sweet and sour-tart apple, faint yeast. Unfiltered earthy feel. Nice.

phaleslu (6609) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 23, 2011
Draft at The Lion’s Pride. Labeled "Culture Cider". Hard to find on here because of that, and I think this must be the one out of the UFF listings. Pours a cloudy pale yellow-gold with a white ring for a head. Aroma of tons of herbs, apple skins, white grapes, cedar, and farmhouse funk. Flavor of tart green apples, herbs, white grapes, and musty funk. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a tart, funky, rustic, dry mouthfeel. So interesting and complex. Never had a cider like this before. Will be eagerly seeking out more UFF stuff.

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 9/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 17/20
egajdzis (5365) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 30, 2011
Pale golden color with a small, white head that left no lacing on the glass. Aroma of apple, vanilla, wood, and bourbon. Taste of much of the same, farmhouse-ey, slightly tart. Really interesting!
