16 Oz can- Odd rubbery smell. Little head. Very, very light straw in color. Taste is very crisp with some lingering sweet crispness.

(draft @ Vander Mill - Spring Hill, MI) Clear gold with very little head. Apple sweetness and the lightest hint of floral hops. Flavor is very similar. Sweet apple and light hop bitterness. Different.

Clear straw color with minimal head. Cider tangy taste and aroma...with just a touch of hops. OK, but I wouldn’t buy again.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at Vander Mill. Light gold body with little carbonation and aromas of apples and pine and earthy hops. Flavor is much more cider than hops but there is a bit of Columbus in the finish. It’s a bright and clean cider.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
473ml can. Clear cider pour. The aroma is fresh cut herbs, flatulence (in a good way mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm) , dank, spple, spple skin, and pine. The flavor is again dank, some woody notes, citrus, and tart dry apple. A crisp and nice cider for fall.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
2oz taster on tap, at HopCat Broad Ripple. Clear golden yellow color. Thin off-white ring of head. Loose dots of lace. Yellow-green apple aromas, kind of tart, moderate sweet taste. Hint of pine ? I can see that, not sure I would have wrote that if not for the name, though. Medium body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Decent, interesting, mildly tart mildly piney sour.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft on tap at the brewpub (Spring Lake, MI). Pours a pale straw yellow hue, faint haziness with healthy straw glow. A loose film dies to nothing, laces minimally. Aromas are a bit of pine and dankness, gentle red apple and a bit of dryness hit. A bit skunky, dank as that earthy hop vibe strikes a bit awkwardly. Initial is lighter and a bit dulled, lacking a decent carbonation jolt. Some bitterness, earthy and piney hops throw some bitterness, a dry herbal twang on the palate. Middle is a bit more inviting, gentle red apple sweetness meets a bit of apple skin, gentle bit of tartness. The skunky front dies out. Backend and finish are a touch butter, dry with some lingering apple sweetness. Something went wrong with the hop profile here, a bit stale and skunky. Ok.

Tasted on tap at Links Taproom on 06/05/2014. Opaque light yellow color. Cask conditioned so a bit warm, but tasty nonetheless. Slightly sour, reminiscent of a sour ale. I don't taste pine as much as juniper berry. Apple taste still dominates the palate. Highly recommend!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft to taster at HopCat in Grand Rapids. Looks decent; a completely transparent very light gold with soft carbonation and lacing that completely dissipates pretty quickly. Smells and tastes solid; apples and piney hops with a pleasantly light, mildly tart, and fairly dry mouthfeel. A decent cider; a bit hoppier than I’d prefer though.
