3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft taster at Bavarian Lodge, May 24. Very light color, slight yellowish haze in the glass. a light cider nose overwhelmed by the German sausage platter the lady next to me is eating. First sip has some Juicy Fruit to it. some orange peel. I was expecting a coriander from the wit yeast, but it’s barely noticeable. The apple taste is pretty light, contributing to a very light mouthfeel. You could easily down a lot of these before you knew what hit you. Very light fizz all the way to the end.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
RAYBOY01 brought a 750ml bottle (and I thought the label read "Michigan Wit") of this interesting cider to tha last Flossmoor Station mug club tapping. It was fermented with Belgian Wit yeast and pretty much looked like a headless Wit in the glass. It had an aroma and flavor of bready yeast, fresh tart apples, and a twist of lemon. Pretty nice stuff. I wonder if they have a hefe-cider in the works...

UPDATED: DEC 26, 2009 Very unusual pale cloudy pour...even looks like a wit. Smell is really appealing...tart apple, lemon zest, and Belgian wit yeast. The wit yeast is pretty prominent in the flavor, consuming all the available sugars and converting them into fruity, spicy, crisp, dry wit-beer like apple-y goodness. Great experiment and one I will be repeating frequently!
