Pour on tap at the Republic SC, clear straw yellow pour with no head, aroma brought notes of nice oak, earth, funk into a bit of lemon, tart apple, slight yeasty, touch of a weird fruity notes as well. Taste was a mix of oak, earth, funk into some dusty basement, some tart apple, yeasty notes, finishing tart, funky.

Bottle - Pours pale yellow with a ring of white bubbles. Nose is dry apple, a little oak, and a bit of dry, leathery Brett. Taste is the same--lots of dry apple, oak, and Brett. Chardonnay finish. Thin and light carbonation. Pretty decent.

UPDATED: NOV 16, 2014 750ml bottle. 2013 harvest. Hazed pour with large bubbles. Nose is tart and sour smelling, some tropical and citrus notes. Falvor is great, earthy, some spice, dry oak, tartness, bittersweetness. Very dry and decently tart, really nice one. Edit: dried a draft pour of this beer and it smelled like filled improper diet baby diapers so proceed with caution.

Draft to snifter. Looks good; a mostly transparent light gold with white lacing that steadily dissipates entirely. Smells of cider apples and oak with a nice balance of tartness and a bit of white wine. Tastes like it smells with a light and fairly dry mouthfeel. Pleasntly tart on the palate. A good cider.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear straw, gold. No head. Musty, earthy, light fruit. Dry upfront, some touch of bitterness, and some sourness. Relatively clean, a little bit of chewy. Nice.

This one’s pale, bright yellow... what an oxymoron. Look for faint white bubbles on the rim of the glass. Bonus points if you can find them. It’s thin like water. The aroma is salt and has a pleasurable complexity. I want to rate the appearance lower for lack of head but it’s cider and the visuality of the texture is complex, therefore unique, therefore intrigueing. The flavor is dry apple pulp but all over a wet palate. Go figure. The apple stock seems of high quality and the dryness will.l make you white wine wimps wail. Enjoy, because why not?
