On tap at the Hill Farmstead Harvest Festival VIP event, Vermont. Pours clear, very pale yellow. Lovely cider from start to finish. Moderately dry with fresh apples, light sugar, mild tartness. Moderate funk in there, light acidity. Stupidly clean and fresh. One of the best American ciders I’ve had.

Tap sample. Poured hazy pale color with a minimal white head that diminished quickly with minimal lacing. Moderate aroma of tart apple. Light to medium body with a dry texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy tart apple flavor with a medium to heavy tart finish of moderate duration. My expectations were met.

Pour on tap, clear golden pour with thin no head, aroma brought notes of big green apple, apple skins, some lemon, touch of yeasty notes with a slight oak. Taste was a mix of oak, lemon, some slight vanilla into tart apple skins, apple flesh, finishing slightly tart, slightly dry.

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!
