3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours naturally very cloudy - with flecks and inconsistencies. Smell is lightly funky with a touch of sourness. Flavor that first hits the tongue is tartness and just a shade of barnyard, followed by what I can only describe as very nice fermented healthy stuff (akin to yogurt) - full of flavor elements and a little sour. Finish is freshly tart, cleansing the palate. Great - some handmade and very healthy cider- this could be the cure.

Aroma is yeasty and funky, Appearance is a cloudy light straw yellow. Nice and dry while still preserving the apple essence. Medium body. Overall not bad but I tend to prefer my ciders a hair sweeter. Given that this is a dry cider though it is good for it’s category.

This stuff isn’t great but at least it does not taste like soda pop. There is an absolute ton of yeast in the bottle but it does pour pretty clear if you are careful. It’s maybe slightly green-tinged yellow in color w/ no head whatever. This is interesting stuff. It is indeed quite dry as per the label and tart as well and to its credit it tastes pretty much nothing like carbonated apple juice. The flavor that’s here though just doesn’t work for me. It has a waft of something that reminds me of a glue stick and is earthy to the point of almost tasting like there’s dirt in it. There are some nice floral notes hiding in there as well but overall this simply does not taste good. I do appreciate it for being what is, which is real cider, but I really can’t recommend this to anyone other than maybe someone who has never gone beyond Woodchuck variants.

355ml red stripe style bottle. Says wild fermented on the bottle, not sure what that is suppose to mean. It is a rare cidre with a pretty large white head but it quickly fizzies away. this is a very pale and unfiltered-looking cidre. The smell is extremely earthy apple. It is fairly sour though not lactic sour and tangy in the flavor, hugely effervescent, some funk and earth notes.Decent highly-carbed cidre.

$4.55 for the bulky, voluptuous 12 oz. bottle purchased at Leary’s. Consumed with WillRunForBeer at my pad. Pours a murky citron; quickly-dispensing head barely 1 finger. Aromas of cat urine (go figure), sidewalk chalk, lactic acid, and applesauce. Tastes the same with the addition of pear, spent grain, and wine yeast. By swallow, it showcased this buttery flavor alongside mucus, funk and unripe tangerine. One of the weirdest things I’ve had in a while, but wasn’t too bad. Thin-bodied.

On tap at Meridian Pint’s DC Beer Week Cider Event. Pours a hazy, bright, neon lime green with zero head. Nose is tart, apples, green apple skin, candle wax. Flavor is nice and tart, almost lemony, a kombucha spiciness, mold ginger, apple core. Plenty of apple. Dry, lightly spicy finish.
