phaleslu (6281) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 23, 2011
Draft at The Lionís 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.

egajdzis (5269) - 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!

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.

ReggieDunlap (3024) - 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.

On tap at Meridian Pintís 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.

Boutip (4642) - 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.

JBPortland (656) - 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.

ben4321 (3790) - 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 youíd 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 isnít very sweet for the style. It is pretty unique.

auerbrau (3153) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - APR 30, 2012
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.

Lukaduke (2045) - 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.
