$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.

Stubby bottle shared by Radarsock, thanks. Pours light yellow green with a touch of white head. Aroma is cortland apple, slight yogurt funk. Taste is very dry, medium tart apple, some grassiness. Thin.

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.

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.

cask-white ring-pale yellow. A-apple skins, musty. T-tart apple skins. Nice nose I’d say.

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.

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.
