3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at Bier Markt, shared with my wife, slightly tart and definitely too dry for her liking but I thought it was okay, nice drying finish.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft - I have tried a couple different batches of this , the most current is my favorite. Bright apple aromas, palate is pretty dry with only a bit of sweetness on the finish. Great session cider.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft to taster. Looks solid; a completely transparent light gold with no real lacing and very soft carbonation. Smells and tastes of tart apples and mild vinegar with a fairly dry mouthfeel. Not bad, but not my favorite example of the style.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Dutch’s. Pours a crystal clear light yellow color with no head. The aroma and flavor have apple cider notes, mild vinegar, tart apples, hints of a dry vinous character, some earthy notes with mild funk. Interesting, but I’m not completely sold on cider and Perry ticks.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Dutch’s. Totally clear, slightly yellow color, no head or lace. Almost colorless. Very interesting apple aroma here... Oak, light funk, maybe a hint of smokey earthiness. Lightly tart taste, lighter sweet relative to other ciders, finishes more dry. Very light, crisp carbonation, more dry finish, and a very light body. Very easy to drink. This is actually chuggable, whereas most ciders are too sweet for that to be possible. Great stuff!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a pale yellow with a head that does the quick rise and fall thing, it’s got a few tiny bubbles rising.
The cider is lightly fruity smelling but has a nice earthy clay and limestone character to it. It’s a touch funky & very inviting.
The flavor is very tart, a touch sour and dry throughout. The cider has a great earthy and minerally character with some tart apple and apple rind flavor.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught @ The Ginger Man, NYC. Pours slightly hazy pale yellow with small white head. Clear aroma of apples, sugar and cinnamon. Sweetish flavour of cinnamon and ripe apples. Sweet aftertaste. OK but nothing revolutionary.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Growler from TheAlum, I’ve wanted to try this for a while. Pours an irridescent greenish yellow, moderate carbonation. Full on apple aroma, with notes of white grapes and a slight floral note. The flavor is acidic, almost bracing, reminds me of a Txokoli wine. Great stuff.
