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.

2.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle… Clear yellow cider with a mid-sized, wispy, white head that’s gone in a flash. The aroma is of day-old, fallen apples -nicely acidic and modestly fruity with a note of toasted oak. Light-bodied and watery with dancing carbonation. The flavor is tart, but mostly thin and fairly nondescript. Not all that fruity, although I do pick up a rumor of bitter and sour apple. Crisp, bland, bone-dry finish. Not nearly as good as their Bloom cider.

Bottle courtesy of EDA. Pale straw colour. The aroma is nice. Quite a pronounced tartness. Soft appley nose with a distict Jolly Rancher fruitiness. Flavour is crisp and tart. It’s fairly simple, but it’s good.
