750 from Monument in Concord, CA. Pours orange tinged gold with white bubbles. Aroma of baked apples. Near medium body with mild carbonation. Flavor is baked apple skins with astringency. It is very dry. So dry it seems oaky. Very quaffable cider. Somewhat complicated as time moves on.

iowaherkeye (2691) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - MAY 9, 2009
750mL bottle from The Trappist, no date. Clear golden with a small bubbly white head (despite an aggressive pour) low retention. Lots of ripe (but tart)apples up front with some honey notes. Only a hint of oak is present. Oak is more present in the flavor, though still not dominant. The aroma was actually fairly sweet, whereas the flavor had almost no sweetness. Dry finish with a little bit of lemony tartness, alcohol masked completely. Light carbonation with a surprisingly light body. Pretty good cider.
