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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at State&Lake at the Wit Hotel, downtown. I finally got to bite into a Virtue Cider. And on a hotel bar tap, too. Color is lighter than the lightest beer out there, with a short, fizzy head that’s gone as soon as you blink. Smell is kind of pale, with just a slight tang of apple juice. I found the taste to be rather light, with tart apple in the back of my throat, just a touch of sweetness. It resists your attempts to swig it down, inviting introspection instead. Seems very fully attenuated, although the abv is no more than most beers.

Hello, you. I could drink on this sweet tartness quite a bit more than what I got from a tasting flight pour at Good Beer. Slightly hazy bright pale straw. Nose of granny smith apples, lemons, and a touch of wood. Taste add some funk and rubber in a great way. Color me intrigued.

17 nov 2012, tap. Very pale yellow, clear, no bubbles. Nose is faintly sweet, primarily tart apple cider. Thin body, dry and a bit fizzy. Really, really dry and really, really tart cider. Maybe faintly oaky.

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
UPDATED: MAY 28, 2012 Sampler @ the GI Clyborn location. The color is pale straw. Aroma is drying, slightly acidic, and fruity apples. Well balanced not sweet and very well done for an English style. Flavor is fruit forward than good dryness and mineral apple without the sweet. I really enjoyed this cider.

Full sampler at Brixie’s in Brookfield, IL.. Showed almost clear, with quickly diminishing bubbles and no lacing. The nose was pleasant sweetness and apple. The sweetness dominated any tartness in the flavor which was basically fruity, lightly syrupy, but thin. Soft carbonation sealed the deal on my impression of a bland palate cleanser.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very pale straw color and strong beading with a white fizzy head. Strong tart apple nose. Champagne-esque carbonation...spritzy, sparkling, refreshing. Fresh tart apple flavor, with some hints of fresh pears. Pretty dry finish...not cloying at all, and very refreshing, A very encouraging first product from a welcome "new" local maker.
