3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
$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 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.

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.
