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.

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.
