Northeast Bucket List Trip Beer #61. 12 ounce bottle from Whole Foods Dedham. Pours a hazy straw color with a bit of a fizzy head. Aroma of sweet apples, dry apples and a mild hint of funk. The taste is dry apples, earth, Lifesavers candy, lemon, mild funk. Medium bodied, lingering tartness.

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 itís category.

This stuff isnít 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. Itís 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 thatís here though just doesnít 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 thereís 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 canít 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 Learyís. 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 Iíve had in a while, but wasnít too bad. Thin-bodied.

On tap at Meridian Pintís 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 Lionís 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.
