True to English style guidelines, this cider was fermented with wild yeast. The nose is unmistakably that of a barnyard, with a more complex mouthfeel than other American ciders. The apples used provide more tannin to the pallet. The funk on this one is an acquired taste. A limited release wild yeast-fermented English-style cider.

Draft at Jerry’s. Pale gold with light, white head / Fat nose of candied apple & pear, with some barnyard funk / Medium to full body, mostly fat with modeest fine-bubbled carbonation, moderately sweet, trace of sourness / Steely, young flavors of red apple, pear, some Jolly Rancher, with quirkier straw, old sweater, bologna, cheese / A very successful whimsy.

On tap at Bangers & Lace. Pours a hazy pale yellow with a white head that starts at the edges and dissipates completely. Aroma has a strong funky barnyard note with underlying tart but dry apples. Flavor starts with a touch of acid and tart apples with a strong funky barnyard backbone and a dry finish.

Vander Mill Dirty Jim - on tap at Bangers & Lace. Aroma is manure aka "barnyard". Flavor is acidic and tart and very representative of the dry english style. Very "funky" as the brewer’s description indicates, and I think this limits its appeal. Good, but unexceptional.
