On tap at Lion’s Pride. Pours a clear gold with a thin white head. Sweet apples, hints of cinnamon and baked apple. Quite dry, lovely apple flesh, but turns bone dry. Nice musk, champagne yeast. Very nice.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a hazy, very pale yellow/straw with no head. Aroma has fresh apple behind tart almost vinegar notes and the faintest boozy/medicinal note. Flavor is very tart and mildly funky but very minimal on the apple flavor...tartness almost comes across as lemony...but of a ginger ale quality. Mouthfeel is light and fizzy with a tart mild apple finish.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Cider has an unpleasant funk on both the nose and palate. The wild yeast present at this fermentory gives the cider the smell and taste of sulfur and old vegetables (which makes sense since they plant also produces fermented veggies). I find it thin on the palate and lacking the deliciousness OR complexity of comparable dry, funky ciders (like Rhody Coyote). The "Baby Jimmy" oak barrel aged variety isn’t any different, save for the oak overtones.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a very pale straw color with little to no head and some nice bottom rising bubbles... Aromas of fresh tart apples, sharp cheddar with touches of funky yeast and vinegar. On the palate its pretty straight forward but rather tasty. Nice carbonation with a sharp tart Macintosh flavor... very dry finish. Crisp clean and great for summer sipping !

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
(Bottle from Bootleggers) Hazy pale straw body. A quick fizzy head evaporates quickly. Interesting, complex aroma of deep apple (almost like an ice cider), yeast, funk, sweet, cheese, sour and apple skins. Mouthfeel is dry and a little sharp. Flavor is both tart and sweet apple with some yeastiness and funk, probably kind of like Sow’s Ear but that was a long time ago. Good, but didn’t live up to the aroma.
